Abstract

Percutaneous mitral valve therapies are emerging as an alternative option for high-risk patients who are not good candidates for conventional open-heart surgery. Recently, multiple technologies and diversified approaches have been developed and are under clinical study or in preclinical development. This article on transcatheter mitral annuloplasty devices, describes the different technologies, and reports on the initial clinical and preclinical experiences.
