Introduction

 

The transcatheter edge-to-edge (TEER) procedure is a complex, multi-step procedure that requires advanced skills to achieve optimal outcomes. These skills include a detailed understanding of normal and diseased mitral valve anatomy, imaging with transesophageal echocardiography, and the multiple steps and nuances of delivering and deploying the MitraClip (one or multiple) to the appropriate locations on the mitral valve leaflets. This ebook provides practical knowledge on how to perform the TEER procedure.
