Three-dimensional multiplanar reconstruction was used to diagnose recurrence of mitral regurgitation after MitraClip implantation in a 71-year-old man. Subsequent mitral valve surgery in such a case is high risk, and repeat MitraClip intervention could be feasible but is technically challenging. This imaging series demonstrates that LVAD implantation may be a solution to address MitraClip failure.

Abstract

Three-dimensional multiplanar reconstruction was used to diagnose recurrence of mitral regurgitation after MitraClip implantation in a 71-year-old man. Subsequent mitral valve surgery in such a case is high risk, and repeat MitraClip intervention could be feasible but is technically challenging. This imaging series demonstrates that LVAD implantation may be a solution to address MitraClip failure.
