valvular disease has a higher prevalence, transcatheter valve replacement was applied in aortic valvular more extensively due to the relatively simple anatomic feature.
Lutembacher Syndrome (LS) is a rare cardiac clinical entity comprising of an unusual combination of atrial septal defect (ASD) and acquired Mitral
valve stenosis (usually of the rheumatic nature).
At Cleveland Clinic more than 1,000 mitral
valve operations are performed every year, making it the busiest center for mitral
valve repair and replacement in North America.
Baby Omar was the first child in UAE to receive a mitral
valve transplant and this life saving surgery in such a tiny child weighing less than 1.
The HARPOON system is designed to facilitate echo-guided repair of mitral
valve regurgitation by stabilizing the prolapsed mitral
valve leaflet to restore proper coaptation and valve function.
The early results also demonstrated notable reductions in mitral
regurgitation with patients experiencing either none/trace or mild mitral
regurgitation at 30-days compared to moderate to severe at baseline.
regurgitation was found in 141(54%) patients in whom 104(74%) patients were found to have mild mitral
regurgitation, 29(20%) patients were found to have moderate mitral
regurgitation and 8(6%) patients were having severe mitral
Results: A total of 99 patients with severe isolated mitral
stenosis who had undergone successful PTMC were studied.
The cause of mitral
regurgitation was rheumatic in all patients, with no congenital myxomatous, infective or ischemic cases.
La estenosis mitral
es una enfermedad de instalacion lenta, se inicia con episodios clinicos o mas frecuentemente subclinicos de carditis reumatica, que se suelen acompanar de insuficiencia plurivalvular y posteriormente aparece la estenosis mitral
que suele manifestarse inicialmente como disnea de ejercicio.
CardiobandTM permits physicians to repair the mitral
valve in a first-line setting while preserving the option to perform future percutaneous or surgical valve repair and/or replacement.
An echocardiogram was repeated 5 days after the initial one, which was 1 day after discharge from the ICU, and revealed minimal mitral
regurgitation and improvement in the ejection fraction to 58%, with normal septal and posterior wall movement.
