Percutaneous repair by MitraClip is a transcatheter technology based on the surgical Alfieri edge-to-edge repair, which involves suturing together the middle segments of the anterior and posterior mitral valve leaflets, thereby creating a "double orifice" mitral regurgitant area.5 The MitraClip system utilizes a cobalt chromium clip covered with a polypropylene fabric that grasps the leaflet and reduces mitral regurgitation (MR) by increasing the coaptation between the regurgitant valve leaflets.
Mitral and aortic regurgitation occurred in 10 children (17.5%), while six children (10.5%) had all the four valves affected in a regurgitant lesion.
Intensified pulmonic sounds with regurgitant systolic murmur was remarkable at the left sternal border.
The system features contoured, broad paddles to maximize coaptation of the mitral leaflets and a central spacer that fills the regurgitant orifice area.
Tricuspid regurgitant flow peak velocity was recorded from apical four chamber view using colour doppler [14] and scored as 0-none, 1-mild, 2-moderate and 3-severe TR.
With the trend of simplification of mitral valve repair, a regurgitant posterior commissure is often either simply sutured or neglected.
Echocardiography revealed significant regurgitant lesions of the mitral, tricuspid and aortic valves.
Mitral stenosis was graded as severe when mitral valve area was 1.0-1.5 cmA2 and very severe when mitral valve area was 7mm Hg from baseline after PMBV was taken as improvement, estimated by continuous wave Doppler echocardiography using the modified Bernoulli equation [4x (peak tricuspid regurgitant jet velocity)2] and 10 mmHg was added for the estimated right atrial pressure.
The World Health Organization Expert Committee specifed four criteria of mitral and aortic regurgitant jets to distinguish between normal and pathological regurgitation on echocardiography and between normal and pathological mitral and aortic regurgitation.
