Description:
This study enrolls people who have mitral regurgitation (MR). Mitral regurgitation happens when the heart’s mitral valve does not close tightly. The purpose of this trial is to evaluate a new investigational device called the Tendyne™ Mitral Valve System. The Tendyne Mitral Valve System is designed for the treatment of a diseased, damaged or malfunctioning mitral valve. This trial will collect information on how safe and effective this device is to treat a leaking mitral valve compared to the commercially available MitraClip® System. Read More
Eligibility:
-Adults ages 18+.
-Have symptomatic, moderate-to-severe/severe mitral regurgitation (MR) or severe mitral annular calcification (MAC)
-Your medical providers have decided a transcatheter therapy is more appropriate than open surgery.
Description:
This study is for people undergoing surgery for mitral regurgitation (MR). Mitral regurgitation is a condition when your heart’s mitral valve does not close tightly which causes blood to flow backwards in your heart. The purpose of this study is to learn how safe and effective one value repair system is (the PASCAL System, an investigational device) compared to another one (the MitraClip System). Read More
