Percutaneous Mitral Valve Intervention and modelling with multi-modality imaging

Robin Chung

Abstract


Functional mitral regurgitation (MR) is a common finding
occurring in 20% of the general population1 and nearly 40% of
heart failure patients exhibiting at least moderate regurgitation.2
Severity of MR predicts mortality3 and increased morbidity
in ischaemic and non-ischaemic aetiologies4, regardless of
revascularisation techniqueas well as in asymptomatic patients.5
Mitral valve repair, by surgical or interventional techniques, aims
to restore valve competence and electromechanical synchrony
to improve symptoms and survival.
