Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair (also called MitraClip) is a minimally invasive procedure that reshapes and repairs the mitral valve (heart valve) through a tube with a clip attached. The small clip reduces mitral regurgitation, a condition where blood flows in reverse. TMVR helps normal blood flow to occur. It is an option for patients with heart failure, or those who are not ideal candidates for mitral valve surgery because of age, heart failure, physical condition, prior cardiac surgery, or other factors.
One of our primary goals is to make this process as efficient as possible to reduce the time you are waiting for your valve treatment. In general, we try to evaluate you within 1-2 weeks of your referral, and to repair or replace your valve within 1-2 weeks after your evaluation.
Our team has carefully compiled the following before, during, and after information to help prepare you for your procedure. If you have any other questions, concerns, or symptom changes, please call your provider.
