About Harpoon Medical Based in Baltimore, Harpoon Medical is a privately held medical device company developing technology designed to facilitate minimally-invasive, beating-heart mitral valve repair to transform the treatment of mitral regurgitation ("MR").
commented: "This challenging early clinical stage in very sick patients demonstrates the implant feasibility of the Mitra-Spacer System as well as the immediate performance of the device in reducing mitral regurgitation".
Mitral regurgitation can also occur due to the mitral paraannular location of the cyst (6).
Mitral regurgitation is the most frequent valve disease and in its severe form can cause hart failure symptoms like easy fatigue, dyspnoea in natural fatigue up to acute pulmonary oedema and predisposes the development of heart arrhythmias and strokes.
This case emphasises that early after mitral valve repair, SAM could be a cause of cardiogenic shock, especially when an anatomical predisposing factor like mild basal septal hypertrophy is combined with postoperative dobutamine, as pointed out by Auer et aP.
MR occurs when the heart's mitral valve does not close properly resulting in an inadequate blood flow to the body.
More than 20 million people worldwide have heart failure, most of whom also suffer from functional mitral regurgitation (FMR).
The band was identified as an aberrant mitral valve chord attached to the A2 segment of the AMVL and inserting at the fossa ovalis of the left sided atrial septum (Figure 2).
