TMVR: A Journey with a Destination

Transcatheter mitral valves are the natural next step in a field where minimally invasive options like MitraClip and TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement) are now widely available. At Piedmont Heart’s iMAGINE 3-D Echo Conference in Atlanta, cardiac surgeon Dr. Jim Kauten talks about transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR), from patient selection to feasibility trials. He shares a valve-in-valve case of a 75-year-old patient with severe mitral MAC (mitral annular calcification) from Piedmont’s Marcus Heart Valve Center.
