Interventional therapies for mitral regurgitation have found a role for patients at high operative risk. The MitraClip is a novel percutaneous therapy which uses a catheter-based system to deliver a clip-like implant to provide apposition between mitral anterior and posterior leaflets. The MitraClip is introduced from a percutaneous, transvenous, and a transseptal approach to reach the mitral valve. Being placed in the central portions of the anterior and posterior leaflets, it acts to anchor prolapse or flail segments to reduce mitral regurgitation.
