Mitral Annuloplasty Using a Cardiac Resynchronization Device

By Andrabi Syed Manzoor Ali, Khurshid Iqbal and Nisar Ahmed Trambu

Abstract

Percutaneous Transvenous Mitral Annuloplasty for mitral regurgitation is in early stages of development and involves a complex intervention which can not be done in patients with left ventricular leads. Since functional mitral regurgitation is common in low ejection fraction states, we propose a device which can serve for annuloplasty in addition to cardiac resynchronization therapy and simplifying the intervention
