Transcatheter Therapies  

Transcatheter therapies can offer new options for patients suffering from severe aortic and mitral valve disease. These patients frequently present with severely damaged additional organ systems, including heart and renal failure. Transcatheter procedures are a new treatment option for a subgroup of cardiac patients at high risk of morbidity and mortality with open heart surgery.

Convergent Approach

Mitraclip Transcatheter Therapy

The minimally invasive MitraClip device is an option for patients suffering from mitral regurgitation (MR). 

Percutaneous Ventricular Assist Device

Ventricular Assist Devices assist the heart by helping the ventricles pump blood, easing the workload of the heart in patients with heart failure. 

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

This revolutionary new heart procedure is an advanced minimally invasive treatment option for patients suffering from severe aortic stenosis.
