Functional MR Added To FDA-Approved Indication For Abbott's MitraClip

The new indication covers functional mitral regurgitation, also known as secondary mitral regurgitation, which represents two-to-three times as many patients as the primary mitral regurgitation population MitraClip is already labeled for. The approval is supported by results from the COAPT trial, the first randomized trial to show that a mitral-valve repair could improve outcomes in patients with secondary mitral regurgitation.

Medical Device Start-Up News, August 2012

MitrAssist Medical Ltd.

Just as people improve their vision by wearing glasses or contact lenses instead of repairing or replacing their eyes, a mitral valve prosthesis from Israeli-based MitrAssist Medical Ltd. neither repairs nor replaces damaged mitral valves in the heart, but rather it augments and enhances native valve function. The company’s implant is placed on top of the native valve and anchored securely. This “valve-in-valve” approach is designed to prevent leakage and restore normal blood flow.
