Heart Valve Interventional Procedures TAVI, MITRAL BALON VALVOTOMY, MitraClip, TriClip

Heart valve interventional procedures include minimally invasive procedures that have been developed as an alternative to surgery for the treatment of heart valve disease. Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) offers a solution to narrowing of the aortic valve. In this procedure, a bioprosthetic valve, usually advanced through a catheter in the groin or thigh, replaces the narrowed aortic valve. TAVI is less invasive than surgical open-heart surgery and is particularly preferred in high-risk or non-surgical patients.

Another interventional procedure used to treat mitral valve diseases such as mitral valve stenosis or mitral regurgitation is mitral balloon valvotomy. In this procedure, an expandable balloon is used through a catheter to correct the narrowing of the mitral valve structure. Mitral balloon valvotomy offers a less invasive option than surgery.

MitraClip is another transcatheter procedure used for the treatment of mitral valve disease. In this method, a clip is inserted into the structure of the mitral valve, which is accessed with a catheter. The clip changes the structure of the mitral valve, correcting leaks and helping the heart to work more efficiently. TriClip is an improved version of MitraClip and is used for mitral valve insufficiency.

These interventional procedures offer less invasive and faster recovery alternatives for the treatment of valvular heart disease. However, because each patient is different, treatment options must be customized to the patient’s condition and needs. These methods often require the collaboration of a multidisciplinary team and patients’ conditions should be carefully evaluated.
