REPAIR MITRAL VALVE WITH MITRACLIP THE REPARATION OF THE MITRAL VALVE WITH MITRACLIP, TECHNIQUE OF INTERVENTIONIST CARDIOLOGY
WHAT IS MITRAL VALVE ” THE MITRAL IS a one way valve that separates the auricle from the left ventricle
WHAT IS MITRAL REGURGITATION? The mitral regurgitation is the passage of blood during the ventricular systole from the left ventricle to the left auricle due to the incomplete closing of the valvular edges.
THE CAUSE OF MITRAL REGURGITATIONMitral regurgitation is caused or by a conditionthat weakens the cardiac muscle. The morecommon causes of mitral damage are:
WHAT IS MITRACLIP SYSTEM? The [mitraclip] system is the first cure device in commerce to offer a non surgical alternative reparation of the mitral valve for the patients that suffer of mitral regurgitation .
THE ANATOMOPATHOLOGICAL CHANGESFOUND IN MITRAL INSUFFICIENSY AREa) valvular rigidityb) deformed retracted cuspsc) tendinous cords hardened andshortenedd) Causes regurgitation into the pulmonary circle
RESULTS-IThe encouraging results in the use of theMitraClip System are confirmed by twoyears without mitral stenosis. These resultsconsolidate the numerous indications thatshow that the therapy through MitraClip canrepresent a good alternative for selectedpatients.
RESULTS-IIThe population of the study for the presentanalysis included 107 patients affected bymoderate or severe regrugitation recruited inthe EVEREST register phase - I (N=55) or nonRandomized subjecks in the EVERESTmotorcycle trial - II (N=52).
