Mitral valve disruption is a rare but serious complication of MitraClip insertion. This review provides an update on surgical interventions following MitraClip failure, and discusses possible valve injuries and surgical approaches.


Interesting how patients assumed to be non-operable did reasonably well after salvage surgery. It follows that some of them should NOT have had the clip in the first place. Congratulations on a good paper
