Successful Non-Surgical Mitral Valve Repair in a Geriatric Patient

Doctors at the Asian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS), Faridabad, successfully performed the MitraClip procedure on an 80-year-old woman with a severe mitral valve leakage recently.

This breakthrough procedure is a first-of-its-kind Transcatheter mitral valve repair (Mitraclip) on an 80-year-old woman with severe Mitral valve leakage.

An 80-year-old woman with severe Mitral valve leakage underwent a successful Transcatheter mitral valve repair (MitraClip) procedure at the Asian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS). The patient had been experiencing severe breathlessness and was unfit for traditional surgical options due to her age and multiple comorbidities. 

The MitraClip procedure – a minimally-invasive technique, was offered as an innovative technique for mitral valve repair. The patient experienced significant improvement after the procedure and could resume her daily activities without breathlessness. The procedure's success highlights the potential of Transcatheter mitral valve repair in providing hope and improved quality of life for patients who were previously considered inoperable. The patient's recovery was encouraging, and she was discharged just two days after the MitraClip surgery.
