Long-term prognosis of patients treated by coronary sinus-based annuloplasty: single centre experience
ESC Heart Failure
- Patients implanted with the Carillon Mitral Contour System were evaluated for long‐term follow‐up post‐procedure up to 7.5 years.
- Patients experienced a clinically significant reduction in heart failure hospitalizations and symptom improvement post procedure which was sustained through the 6+ year follow-up period.
- Long-term mortality was 40% at 6 years, which compares favorably to several prior studies that have evaluated medically managed patients with FMR.
Patients treated with the Carillon device continue to show sustained improvements in mitral regurgitation, left ventricular volume, ejection fraction, and clinical status 6+ years post procedure. All patients at 6 year follow-up had MR 2+ or less with over half having MR 1+ or trace, and LVEDV was reduced from 154.0 ± 65.7 mL at baseline to 104.5 ± 59.2 mL (p=0.03).
