Microinvasive Mitral Valve Surgery: A New Frontier to Tackle Mitral
Microinvasive, catheter-based mitral valve repair of severe mitral
regurgitation utilizes less invasive approaches with less procedural
morbidity and mortality. The procedural steps and clinical benefits of
the transcatheter transapical mitral valve annuloplasty (AMEND mitral
repair implant) and transcatheter transapical chordal repair systems
(Neochord DS 1000 device and Harpoon Mitral Valve Repair System) are
reviewed in this manuscript.
