What is known about The Cardioband in the clinical area? Severe secondary mitral valve insufficiency frequently affects high-risk surgical patients. Cardioband system is a novel percutaneous surgical-like device for direct annuloplasty. It is totally implanted in the beating heart, by transvenous femoral access with minimal impact on hemodynamic and cardiac function during the implantation. It has been demonstrated to be safe and feasible in high-risk patients with functional mitral regurgitation, with high rates of implant success, significant annular reduction and regurgitation improvements. That positively impacts directly on ventricular function, functional status and quality of life. Recently, Cardioband has been used also in tricuspid position, with initial promising results.
