MitraClip therapy is emerging as an alternative treatment for primary and secondary mitral regurgitation in high risk patients. A randomized trial has shown safety in selected patients, with efficacy non inferior to surgery in elderly patients with functional mitral regurgitation. Following commercialization, MitraClip therapy is offered to patients very different from the profile of those enrolled in the randomized trial. Several registries are on the way and provide useful preliminary information related to real-world experience with percutaneous mitral valve repair with the MitraClip system.
