Acute mitral regurgitation is a life-threatening pathology. Nowadays, percutaneous mitral valve repair with the MitraClip device offers, in selected patients, a safe and effective therapeutic alternative to open surgery. Hereby, we report the case of an 82-year-old woman with lateral ST-elevation myocardial infarction determining severe acute mitral regurgitation, who was treated with an urgent MitraClip procedure. Moreover, we discuss echocardiographic assessment of acute mitral regurgitation and we review available literature and possible management of this complex scenario.

Abstract

Acute mitral regurgitation is a life-threatening pathology. Nowadays, percutaneous mitral valve repair with the MitraClip device offers, in selected patients, a safe and effective therapeutic alternative to open surgery. Hereby, we report the case of an 82-year-old woman with lateral ST-elevation myocardial infarction determining severe acute mitral regurgitation, who was treated with an urgent MitraClip procedure. Moreover, we discuss echocardiographic assessment of acute mitral regurgitation and we review available literature and possible management of this complex scenario.
