Safety and Performance Study of the MitralStitch Repair System.

2019-09-12 02:34:41 | BioPortfolio


The main objective is to assess the effectiveness and safety of the MitralStitch repair system in patients with moderate to severe and severe mitral regurgitation.


The clinical trial was designed as a prospective, multicenter, single group assignment study. The participants with moderate to severe and severe mitral valve regurgitation will receive a transapical beating-heart mitral valve repair surgery using MitralStitch mitral valve repair system after signed the informed consent. The follow-up will be conducted after 30 days, 3 months, 6 months and 12 months of the operation.

The following conditions evaluate the performance of the system and the safety and efficiency of using MitralStitch mitral valve repair system in treating patients with severe mitral regurgitation.

The none occurrence of these conditions will be approved as the main validity index: death, mitral valve related surgery without mitral valve failure and moderate or severe mitral regurgitation (MR > 2+). The secondary validity index was technical success rate, instrument success rate, surgical success rate, cardiac function improvement and quality of life improvement. And the safety evaluation indicators were assessed by the incidence of major adverse events, adverse events, serious adverse events, and device defects.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Backflow of blood from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the LEFT ATRIUM due to imperfect closure of the MITRAL VALVE. This can lead to mitral valve regurgitation.

Abnormal protrusion or billowing of one or both of the leaflets of MITRAL VALVE into the LEFT ATRIUM during SYSTOLE. This allows the backflow of blood into left atrium leading to MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY; SYSTOLIC MURMURS; or CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA.

Narrowing of the passage through the MITRAL VALVE due to FIBROSIS, and CALCINOSIS in the leaflets and chordal areas. This elevates the left atrial pressure which, in turn, raises pulmonary venous and capillary pressure leading to bouts of DYSPNEA and TACHYCARDIA during physical exertion. RHEUMATIC FEVER is its primary cause.

A type of heart valve surgery that involves the repair, replacement, or reconstruction of the annulus of the MITRAL VALVE. It includes shortening the circumference of the annulus to improve valve closing capacity and reinforcing the annulus as a step in more complex valve repairs.

Regurgitation and re-chewing of previously swallowed food in RUMINANTS.
