Since the first transcatheter heart valve implantation in the pulmonary position in 2000 and in the aortic position in 2002, a large number of transcatheter heart valves have reached the clinical arena and thousands of high-risk patients have been treated successfully, in particular those with severe aortic stenosis. In contrast, the experience of transcatheter mitral valve repair or implantation started relatively more recently, and only a few devices are available at the moment. The aim of this review is to describe the different percutaneous systems for the treatment of mitral regurgitation.
