DO YOU HAVE MITRAL REGURGITATION (MR)?
If your doctor has told you that you have mitral regurgitation (MR), also called mitral insufficiency or mitral incompetence, you have come to the right place. Medications alone are not enough for many patients suffering with MR, and oftentimes MR patients are not good candidates for surgery for a variety of reasons. If you’re one of these patients, you may qualify for a clinical trial studying an investigational device for MR.
This website provides useful information about the LivaNova Caisson Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement (TMVR) clinical trial to help you determine if it’s right for you.
