Mitral valve regurgitation is a heart condition where some of your blood flows in the wrong direction, possibly causing serious problems. At Loma Linda University Medical Center – Murrieta, this condition can be treated with the breakthrough procedure MitraClip. MitraClip is also known as transcatheter mitral valve repair, or TMVr.
MitraClip reduces strain on the heart and helps you get back to living your fullest life. The procedure is less invasive (uses fewer and smaller incisions) and can help you if open-heart surgery isn’t right for you.
