Growing bodies of clinical evidence continue to support the utility of various novel treatment options for mitral regurgitation (MR). With the recent expansion of indications for devices to treat functional mitral regurgitation (FMR), continued review of emerging data is essential to realizing optimized patient outcomes in both surgical and transcatheter treatment of MR. This program will provide comprehensive overview of recent clinical trials and practical implications, case-based review of MR treatment options, and discussion of approaches for selecting appropriate surgical or transcatheter MR therapies.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Identify unmet needs of patient care in mitral valve disease
  • Describe developments in TMVR procedures and lessons learned
  • Summarize perspectives on future treatments for mitral regurgitation

This program is designed for interventional cardiologists, clinical cardiologists, and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with cardiovascular disease.

Evaluation by questionnaire will address content, presentation effectiveness, possible bias, and future educational needs.
