Sentara Master Series Presents a LIVE MitraClip Mitral Valve Repair

Dr. Matthew Summers and Dr. David Adler performed a LIVE MitraClip procedure, with Dr. Deepak Talreja serving as Moderator. The team discussed how the procedure is performed, which patients are best candidates,  and recovery time involved.

MitraClip is a small clip-like device used to stop leaking in the mitral valve. It is placed on the mitral valve in a minimally invasive interventional cardiology procedure. This procedure offers significant benefits over open-heart surgery for mitral valve disease. Patients typically recover more quickly, spending less time in the hospital and experiencing fewer complications. This breakthrough treatment has shown to significantly improve symptoms, slow disease progression and greatly improve quality of life for individuals with mitral regurgitation.

The Structural Heart Team at Sentara is made up of experienced cardiologists and surgeons who take a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating this condition, offering minimally invasive mitral valve repair to treat mitral regurgitation (MR).
