Abstract

Patients with acute mitral regurgitation and cardiogenic shock have poor outcomes. Many patients do not qualify for surgery and are left with no treatment options. We present the case of a 76-year-old woman with severe mitral regurgitation, cardiogenic shock, and prohibitive surgical risk who was successfully treated with transcatheter mitral valve edge to edge repair. We also review the existing data that supports transcatheter mitral valve edge to edge repair in this setting.
