Authors' objectives: The scope of the present assessment was to answer the question if in adults with chronic primary (degenerative) or secondary (functional) MR who are at high surgical risk or non-surgical candidates, transcatheter MV repair by implantable device is more effective, safe and cost-effective than pharmacological treatment (when indicated) with/without cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT).
Authors' recomendations: The available evidence did not allow any final statement to be reached on the relative effectiveness of transcatheter implantable devices for MV repair (CARILLON® Mitral Contour System® and MitraClip® System) in adults with moderate-to-severe and severe chronic MR. The two economic studies (one for CARILLON® Mitral Contour System® and one for MitraClip®System) included in the analysis showed that, in patients with moderate to severe and severe MR at high surgical risk or not eligible for surgery, the two devices are cost-effective compared to conventional/optimal medical treatment.
