BACKGROUND The septal-to-lateral (SL) mitral annular diameter is increased in functional mitral regurgitation (MR). We describe a novel percutaneous technique (the percutaneous septal sinus shortening system) that ameliorates functional MR in an ovine model. METHODS AND RESULTS Sheep underwent rapid right ventricular pacing to obtain moderate to severe functional MR with SL enlargement. The percutaneous septal sinus shortening system was placed via standard interventional techniques… CONTINUE READING
