Heart Team Performs West Coast US's First Transfemoral Transseptal Mitral Valve Replacement Procedure
A team at the University of California Davis was the first on the west coast to perform a mitral valve replacement with new minimally invasive valve technology. Since no surgical access through the chest is involved in transfemoral transseptal mitral valve replacement (TTMV), it has a shorter recovery time and opens the door for valve replacement in patients who wouldn’t otherwise be eligible.
