Meeting Summary

Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) is a common occurrence in patients with heart failure (HF). FMR is associated with as much as a 2-fold increase in mortality, as well as in HF hospitalisations. Over the past 15 years, efforts to address FMR have focussed on the development of transcatheter devices that replicate the effect of annuloplasty; however, besides open heart surgery, optimal medical treatment remains the standard of care (SoC) for these patients. To date, the only CE-marked option available for clinical use as a transcatheter annuloplasty device is the CARILLON® Contour System® from Cardiac Dimensions. The efficacy demonstrated in clinical trials, implantation technique, and comprehensive patient treatment was discussed during the symposium at EuroPCR and is presented in detail in this article.
