Abbott's Investigational MitraClip(R) System Demonstrates Strong Safety Results and Improved Clinical Outcomes for Common Causes of Leaky Heart Valves
Date:5/25/2010

Additionally, Abbott presented results on a subset of patients within the EVEREST II trial who had progressed to two years post procedure, which showed that the positive clinical results achieved at one year with the MitraClip system are sustained at two years in patients with significant MR. The preliminary two-year results evaluated 86 of the 217 patients who had successful MR reduction after treatment with a MitraClip device or open heart surgery, and showed there was no difference in the need for subsequent mitral valve surgery through two years between these two groups.

"The patient subgroup analysis shows that the catheter-based clip device delivers consistent results regardless of FMR or DMR etiology. These results are important because they are consistent with the results achieved in the EVEREST High Risk Registry Study, indicating the device may be an option for treatment for a range of patients with MR," said Ted Feldman, M.D., FSCAI, director, Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, and The Mr. and Mrs. Charles R. Walgreen Chair in Interventional Cardiology, NorthShore University HealthSystem, Evanston, IL; and co-principal investigator of the EVEREST II trial. "In addition, the data on the durability of the clip device compared to surgery through two years adds to my confidence that a treatment strategy with the clip may be a viable choice for certain patients who are looking for other options to treat their leaky heart valve."

The MitraClip system includes a catheter-based device, which is delivered to the heart through a blood vessel in the leg (femoral vein). The MitraClip device is designed to reduce significant MR by clipping together the leaflets of the mitral valve (one of the four valves of the heart). Mitral regurgitation affects more than 8 million people in the United States and '/>"/>
