Transcatheter Edge-to-Edge Repair: An Assessment of Its Long-term Impact on Mitral Regurgitation
Moderated by Dr Marta Sitges (University of Barcelona, ES), this live broadcast will address how TEER therapy has driven unparalleled clinical outcomes across a diverse group of mitral regurgitation patients over the past two decades.
Dr Sitges is joined by an outstanding faculty of international leaders, Dr Paul Mahoney (Sentara Heart Hospital, US), Prof Francesco Maisano (San Raffaele Hospital, IT) and Dr Anita Asgar (Montreal Heart Institute, CA), for a series of insightful presentations, patient case studies and discussions, which will focus on long-term outcomes with TEER and consider the totality of evidence, including real-world data.
This broadcast is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Abbott.
This programme is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation of Continuing Education for Health Professionals (EBAC) for 1 CME point, equating to 1 hour of learning.

Prof Maisano is Professor of Cardiac Surgery and Director of the Valve Center at San Raffaele Research Hospital in Milan.
Prof Maisano is a cardiac surgeon with large experience in standard cardiovascular treatments and innovative technologies, as well as cross-trained in interventional cardiology, with specific focus on structural interventions.
In his research, Prof Maisano was the principal investigator of the ACCESS EU Registry, the largest European registry monitoring the real-world results of MitraClip therapy. He is the co-inventor of a surgical annular prosthesis, which is now a standard surgical technique in the treatment of functional mitral valve regurgitation.
Prof Maisano is an Editorial Board member of Cardiac Failure Review.
Anita W Asgar
Dr Anita Asgar is an Interventional Cardiologist working at the Montreal Heart Institute, and Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Montreal.
Dr Asgar specialises in transcatheter valve interventions, congenital interventions and cardiac MRI. She is the lead cardiologist for the transcatheter mitral/tricuspid valve program at the Montreal Heart Institute. Her research interests include the treatment and management of valvular heart disease and cost-effectiveness analysis and she is currently the Director of Transcatheter Valve Therapy Research at the Montreal Heart Institute.
Dr Paul Mahoney is a cardiologist in Norfolk, Virginia. Dr Mahoney serves as the Medical Director of the Sentara Structural Heart Program, and has as a particular focus on the diagnosis and treatment of structural heart disease.
He performs interventions such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement, Mitra-Clip, left atrial appendage closure, balloon valvuloplasty of the aortic and mitral valves, and non-surgical closure of atrial and ventricular septal defects.
Dr Marta Sitges is a senior consultant non-invasive cardiologist at the Cardiovascular Institute in Hospital Clinic and Professor of Medicine at the University of Barcelona. She has also been the Director of the Cardiovascular Institute since October 2015.
Her main clinical practice is related to clinical and interventional echocardiography, sports cardiology and heart valve disease. She has an extensive publication track in these fields with participation in leading National and International meetings, she has received more than 60 peer reviewed grants and directed multiple MD and PhD thesis.
