Everest II Endovascular Valve Edge to Edge Repair Study Lab
Investigator: Elyse Foster, MD
Sponsor: Evalve, Inc.
Location(s): United States
250,000 people in the US learn they have mitral regurgitation (MR) every year, but only 20% undergo standard treatment to repair or replace the valve through open - heart surgery, which for many poses a high risk.
The Everest II study examined the safety and effectiveness of the MitraClip procedure system as compared to open - chest surgery. It also examined superiority of safety with the minimally invasive Clip as compared to a treatment strategy of mitral valve repair or replacement surgery .
