Retrieval of a MitraClip from the left atrium using a two-snare technique: Case report and review of the literature

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

MitraClip is used for reduction of mitral insufficiency in patients who are not good surgical candidates, but with expanding indications, the use of MitraClip and the number of complications will increase. Here is presented a case of a single leaflet device attachment that worsened the patient's mitral insufficiency, as well as the technique for stabilizing the valve followed by retrieval of the device. A special focus is placed on removing the using a two-snare technique to avoid the need for a surgical cutdown and repair.
