therapy," said Dr. Virmani. "These results are especially promising considering the potential need for future surgery in some patients. There are no histo-pathologic indications that suggest that future surgical options may be impaired in patients with long term implantation of the MitraClip(R) device."

The MitraClip(R) system is the first commercially available treatment option for non-surgical mitral valve repair for patients suffering from the effects of MR in Europe. The MitraClip(R) system is currently in late stage clinical trials in the United States.

About Mitral Regurgitation

MR is the most common type of heart valve insufficiency in the United States and Europe, affecting millions of people worldwide. Significant MR affects more than eight million people in the US and Europe. There are more than 600,000 new diagnoses of significant MR each year in the US and Europe; however, only 20 percent of these patients undergo surgery each year. Many higher risk surgical patients and non-surgical patients continue to be affected by the chronic volume overload caused by MR, which requires the heart to work harder, and may ultimately lead to heart failure.

About the MitraClip(R) Procedure

Mitral repair with Evalve's MitraClip(R) device is performed by physicians in the catheterization laboratory. The heart beats normally during the procedure, and therefore does not require a heart-lung bypass machine. In addition to improving blood flow through the heart, the procedure may also relieve symptoms such as fatigue and shortness of breath that often affect patients with significant MR. After treatment, patients generally recover quickly. The MitraClip(R) device may improve quality of life and may help MR patients avoid or delay surgery, having preserved surgical options (valve repair or replacement) should surgery become necessary.
