Introduction:

Percutaneous repair of severe mitral regurgitation (MR) is an important treatment option for patients deemed to be at high risk for surgical intervention.The presence of a central regurgitant lesion is generally considered an important anatomic criterion to achieve optimal results. We present a case of severe eccentric MR successfully treated with a MitraClip device (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, CA) and discuss the uniqueness of the procedure and the role of intraprocedural guidance by two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) transesophageal echocardiography (TEE).

Learning Objectives:

After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:

  1. Recall that Percutaneous repair of severe mitral regurgitation (MR) is an important treatment option for patients who are high risk for surgery.
  2. Distinguish that an eccentric MR lesion required a modified imaging approach to visualize the nature of the anatomic pathology as well as the regurgitant jet.
  3. Interpret that 3D imaging is key to identifying the anatomic target for the MitraClip position.
