Abstract

The procedural room setup is an important part of the MitraClip procedure. A well-planned layout not only aids in communication between the operator, echocardiologist, and anesthesiologist, but also can reduce the risk of errors. The procedure may be performed in the cardiac catheterization laboratory or in a hybrid operating room. Key requirements included fluoroscopy, transesophageal echo capability, and sufficient working space.
