Abstract

This case highlights the use of the MitraClip to treat a patient with severe functional mitral regurgitation. Of note, TEE imaging, especially 3-D imaging, showed that the maximal mitral regurgitation jet was from a restricted P2 scallop with a slight medial bias. This allowed targeted placement of the MitraClip with dramatic results.
