Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) is a minimally invasive procedure that can effectively treat functional mitral regurgitation in heart failure patients. Compared to traditional surgical approaches, TEER offers benefits such as reduced hospital stay, lower risk of bleeding and infection, and faster recovery time. Additionally, TEER has been found to improve symptoms and quality of life […]
