Hemodynamic Improvement at Three Months after MitraClip® Treatment in End-Stage Heart Failure Patients with Functional Mitral Regurgitation.

BACKGROUND Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) is common in patients with advanced heart failure and impaired left ventricular function. The study aim was to examine functional and hemodynamic effects at three months after MitraClip® implantation in high-risk surgical patients with FMR. METHODS A group of 93 patients was rejected for surgical treatment… CONTINUE READING
