of life."

Multiple trials, published reports, and registries of patients treated with the MitraClip device consistently demonstrate a positive safety profile, reduction in mitral regurgitation, improvement in symptoms, and reduction in hospitalizations for heart failure, even in some of the most ill and debilitated patients.

"MitraClip is a breakthrough in the treatment of severe mitral regurgitation, a condition that is progressive and causes extreme fatigue and shortness of breath, eventually making even simple tasks virtually impossible, and increasing the risk of stroke, heart failure and death," says Dr. Maini. "FDA approval of the MitraClip marks an important milestone for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases."

The device is delivered to the heart through the femoral vein, a blood vessel in the leg, and once implanted, allows the heart to pump blood more efficiently, thereby relieving symptoms and improving their quality of life. Patients undergoing MitraClip® treatment typically experience short recovery times and short hospital stays of two to three days.

PinnacleHealth CardioVascular Institute (PHCVI) continues to conduct clinical trials of the MitraClip® therapy through a landmark, prospective, randomized trial COAPT that will evaluate the impact of MitraClip® treatment on the progression of heart failure.
