A Small Device With Mighty Results

If you have mitral valve regurgitation and are considered high-risk for open-heart surgery, you’ve come to the right place. In 2014, AdventHealth became one of the first programs to perform MitraClip® procedures — a breakthrough treatment option that can improve your quality of life and set you on a path to whole-person recovery.

We’re here to help you find the right physician or a location that’s convenient for you.

Helping Hearts Stay Healthy

Mitral regurgitation is a serious condition, and left untreated, it can lead to congestive heart failure. That’s why it’s important to take care of it quickly — and for good.

    Leaking Blood Can Cause Congestive Heart Failure

    When blood pumps through the heart, it moves oxygen from one chamber to the next. Flaps of tissue (leaflets) act as doors between each chamber to prevent oxygenated blood from moving backward. If you have mitral regurgitation, the leaflets aren’t properly sealed and blood leaks out causing serious problems.

    MitraClip® Reduces Leaking and Decreases Risks

    The MitraClip® is implanted through a needle puncture in your skin. A catheter guides it through your heart and attaches it to the leaflets. This closes the valves, keeps you out of the hospital, decreases your risk of heart failure and reduces leaking.
