Apollo Hospitals Group has notched up yet another milestone with the successful completion of four back-to-back MitraClip procedures in one single day. The MitraClip implants were carried out on four patients suffering from severe heart failure, surpassing Japan where MitraClip procedures were performed on three patients in a single day. The four back-to-back MitraClip procedures were performed at Apollo Hospitals, Chennai by Dr Sai Satish, Senior Interventional Cardiologist. The minimally invasive method used in MitraClip therapy allows repair of a leaking mitral valve without open heart surgery, and is a lifesaver for patients at high surgical risk. All four patients, the oldest of whom was 87 years old, went home walking within 3 days and are currently doing well.
