Apollo Hospitals, has successfully conducted MitraClip implant surgery on a 41-year-old male farmer who had waited for over three months in other hospitals for a heart transplant. The patient was back on his feet within a few days after the procedure, and might not even need a heart transplantation.

Dr. Sai Satish, Senior Interventional Cardiologist, Apollo Hospitals, Chennai said, The MitraClip is a small metal clip with a polyester fabric that is inserted in place to fix the leaky mitral valve, thereby ensuring that the blood flow is in the right direction. It is a globally accepted procedure for patients with heart failure. Patients with moderate to severe or severe primary and secondary mitral regurgitation who are not improving on medical treatment can opt for this minimally invasive solution that offers them a vastly improved quality of life and health.
