Transcatheter Mitral-Valve Repair in Patients with Heart Failure and Functional Mitral Regurgitation - Potential Scope and Clinical Benefit of Early Adoption at an Integrated Healthcare Delivery SystemThis study will look at the clinical benefit of early adoption of the MitraClip device in patients with heart failure in a real-world setting. Previous research showed patients who have the MitraClip procedure have 50% fewer hospitalizations for heart failure within the next 24 months than those who receive the standard of care. The MitraClip is used to reduce mitral regurgitation, a common side effect of heart failure, that affects quality of life and functioning, increases risk of hospitalization, and reduces survival despite medical therapy.
