Abstract

Randomized clinical trials demonstrated transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) efficacy in improving outcome vs. medical management for functional mitral regurgitation, but limited randomized data are available for the treatment of degenerative mitral regurgitation (DMR). We aimed to compare the outcome of older patients treated with TEER vs. unoperated DMR.
Degenerative mitral regurgitation
Survival
Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair
Aged
Cardiac Catheterization
Humans
Stroke Volume
Treatment Outcome
Atrial Fibrillation
Heart Valve Prosthesis Implantation
Mitral Valve Insufficiency
