A small study of the Neovasc (NSDQ:NVCN) Tiara transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) in high-risk patients revealed a 100% procedural success rate and immediate elimination of mitral regurgitation.
Published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Interventions, the study also showed no death, myocardial infarction, stroke, major bleeding, or access site complications at 30 days.
The twelve patients in the study had had a previous aortic valve replacement. Such patients have been excluded from most TMVR trials because of the potential risks of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction or interaction between the TMVR anchoring mechanism and the aortic prosthesis, according to the study.
