MitraClip(R) Therapy Data Demonstrate Clinical Benefit in High-Risk Patients With Mitral Regurgitation

EVEREST High-Risk Registry Data Show Improved Symptomatic Status, Cardiac Function and Reduced rate of Hospitalization for Congestive Heart Failure in both Functional and Degenerative MR Patient Populations

BARCELONA, Spain, May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Results show percutaneous mitral repair using the MitraClip(R) system in symptomatic high-risk surgical patients with either functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) or degenerative mitral regurgitation (DMR) improves patient clinical status. The results from the 78 patient EVEREST II High Risk Registry demonstrated improvement in left ventricular function and reduced hospitalization for congestive heart failure for both MR groups at twelve months. Additionally, a reduction in mortality compared to the predicted mortality risk of surgery was reported for the registry. The results of the High-Risk Registry were presented today at the third annual meeting of EuroPCR, the official congress of the European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions (EAPCI).

MR is the most common type of heart valve insufficiency in Europe and the United States, affecting millions of people worldwide. Significant MR affects more than eight million people in the US and Europe, the majority of which have FMR. There are more than 600,000 new diagnoses of significant MR each year in Europe and the US; 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.

The data were presented today by Saibal Kar, M.D., director of interventional cardiac research at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and the lead enrolling investigator of the EVEREST trials.
