First Dutch Patients Treated With the Percutaneous MitraClip(R) System
Date:2/12/2009

raClip(R) device is currently being implanted in four countries, including Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom and now the Netherlands.

"Customer feedback about the MitraClip(R) system has been exceptional. Physicians have experienced a quick procedural learning curve and have commented positively on the ease of use of the MitraClip(R) system," said Ferolyn Powell, president and chief executive officer of Evalve. "The most impressive physician responses have been based on the immediate observation of MR reduction and the resultant relief of symptoms in heart failure patients. Additionally, we hear positive comments on the physician's ability to place the MitraClip(R) device on the beating heart without difficulty and how stable the patients are during the procedure. Evalve will continue to work diligently to make the technology available throughout the European Union."

About the MitraClip(R) Procedure

Percutaneous 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.
