MitraClip Safely Relieves Symptoms in Patients With No Surgical Options

tions alone. At 30-day follow-up, 75 percent of survivors were in NYHA class I or II, meaning no or only slight limitation in physical activity. Survival at one year was 75 percent, better than the 55 percent in the medication-only control group.

At one year, 74 percent of survivors who were treated with the MitraClip were still in NYHA class I or II and average heart function was improved by several measures. In addition, there was a 45 percent reduction in readmissions to the hospital for congestive heart failure. None of the patients in the study developed more severe symptoms, worse mitral regurgitation or underwent surgery within that time period.

Researchers concluded that treatment with the MitraClip valve repair system can be performed safely in high-risk patients and provides long-lasting relief of symptoms.

"Patients who couldn't walk across a room without being short of breath are now able to walk up a flight of stairs, go shopping, and exercise," said Dr. Kar. "The MitraClip procedure can be transformational for patients."

The study was sponsored by Evalve, Inc, which is now part of Abbott. Dr Kar received research grants from Evalve, Inc.

Dr. Kar will present the study "MitraClip® Therapy in the EVEREST II High Risk Registry: One Year Results" in an oral abstract session on Thursday, May 6, 2010, 10:45 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
