Mitral regurgitation is a common disease in patients with cardiomyopathies, constituting poor prognosis when present. In patients with an increased risk for surgery, a minimally-invasive, percutaneous procedure currently exists, in the form of an edge-to-edge repair technique using the MitraClip device. This approach allows for great flexibility in specific situations, such as in the addition of another clip when necessary, either during the procedure or after a follow-up period. The following case study depicts the course of therapy for a patient with ischemic cardiomyopathy and severe bi-ventricular failure. The patient was implanted with a MitraClip device five months before the current event, and now presents with clinical deterioration, and a renewed mitral valve insufficiency.
