Targeted Transseptal Access for MitraClip Percutaneous Mitral Valve Repair

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

9 Scopus citations


Targeted transseptal puncture remains the most critical initial part of the overall MitraClip procedure. Care and attention must be implemented for patient safety in choosing the optimal puncture site. A consistent and step-by-step methodical approach is recommended. As experienced operators are targeting more complex and nontraditional pathologic conditions, use of adjunctive tools and maneuvers (outlined in this review) are paramount to achieving successful targeted transseptal access and ultimately procedural success.
