Short Term Outcomes of Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair in Renal Transplant Recipients

      Transcatheter mitral valve repair using the MitraClip device is an established treatment option with increasing clinical application for moderate-severe or severe mitral regurgitation (MR) in high-risk patients. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD) are significant co-morbidities that contribute to an elevated surgical risk in patients with MR. In patients with ESRD, kidney transplantation has shown to be the preferred treatment with better quality of life, improved mortality and morbidity as compared with dialysis. Previous studies have assessed the impact of baseline CKD and ESRD on dialysis on outcomes in patients undergoing MitraClip.

      Outcomes after transcatheter mitral valve repair in patients with renal disease.
      However, the data on the outcomes of MitraClip in renal transplant recipients is limited. Therefore, we aimed to perform a nationwide study to compare the characteristics and outcomes of patients undergoing MitraClip with and without a history of renal transplant.
