Investigational Device Repairs Mitral Valves While Heart Beats
from Cardiovascular Business
An image-guided cardiac device designed to repair the mitral valve while a patient's heart is still beating could provide a safe, effective alternative to traditional open heart surgery, according to research presented Nov. 1 at the Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meeting in Denver. The new device, known as the Harpoon Mitral Valve Repair System (H-MVRS), is deployed through a small opening in the patient's ribs.
