Percutaneous Mitral Valve Therapy: The Next Decade

After more than a decade, the field of transcatheter mitral valve therapy is still in its infancy, yet it is surprisingly crowded. The first percutaneous mitral valve company was founded in 1999, the same year that the first transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) company was founded, but while TAVI is now on the market in Europe and in the US, the leading transcatheter mitral valve therapy has only just completed clinical trials.

CardiAQ Valve Technologies

Today, mitral valve repair and replacement procedures involve opening the chest and stopping the heart. Hence, many patients who might otherwise benefit from therapy are excluded because they are either too ill or not ill enough to justify the risk. A percutaneous mitral valve replacement system in development from CardiAQ Valve Technologies intends to significantly reduce that risk by using a catheter to deliver a new mitral valve.

Percutaneous Heart Valve Technology: The Mitral Challenge

While there is no question that heart valve repair and replacement is moving toward minimally invasive techniques and devices, there is a big difference between a minimally invasive surgical approach and a truly percutaneous, incisionless procedure. The challenges of reaching the latter goal are substantial, but apparently not insurmountable., In fact, recent progress in this field provides hope that in the not too distant future, percutaneous valve replacement and repair will become an accepted part of the treatment armamentarium, greatly expanding the number of patients who can be offered these potentially life-saving procedures.

Stent Recap: Turmoil in 2007--What's Ahead for Interventional Cardiology?

Although safety concerns about drug-eluting stents have been mitigated somewhat by recent reports of more positive clinical data, there is lingering unease and confusion in the cardiology community about when, how, and in whom to use these devices. There is also a growing wave of healthy skepticism about the way stent trials are designed and conducted, and whether evidence- based medicine is well served by the current process.
