A recently published article showed the benefit of TEER compared to mitral valve surgery in older, sicker patients with a high risk in surgery.

In this article, the authors evaluated the practice trends and three-year outcomes following transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) and surgical repair for degenerative MR in the United States. Medicare and Medicaid data of 53,117 mitral valve interventions for degenerative MR (surgery or TEER) between 2012 and 2019 were analyzed.

In this video, we are excited to share our latest educational innovations, including the development of a tele-simulator and a tele-simulation curriculum for endoscopic mitral valve surgery.

The authors used machine learning techniques on twenty-year outcome data from 436 consecutive patients who underwent mitral valve repair over an eighteen-year period. The endpoints were actuarial survival and freedom from moderate or high mitral regurgitation (MR).

Minimally invasive mitral valve surgery (MIMVS) is feasible and safe, but its uptake has lagged worldwide. The authors conducted a detailed survey of 75 surgeons, of whom 32 (42 percent) completed the survey. All who completed the survey performed more than 25 MIMVS cases annually.

The use of bioprostheses for mitral valve replacement is well established and steadily increasing worldwide. However, long-term durability is not well described. Accurate mitral valve bioprosthetic durability reports are necessary to set a standard against which transcatheter mitral valve replacement can be compared.
