Takayuki and colleagues reviewed the outcome of mitral valve replacement after failed mitral valve repair with MitraClip in 25 patients. Perioperative mortality was 28%, and overall one-year survival was 53%. Risk factors for perioperative mortality included preoperative cardiogenic shock, septic shock, and liver failure. Mitral valve regurgitation after MitraClip implantation was usually caused by valve leaflet damage, degeneration, or infection.
