Carillon improved echocardiographic parameters in functional mitral regurgitation patients.
- In this study, nine patients were enrolled and successfully implanted with the Carillon device.
- One-month post-implant, vena contracta, the ratio of the jet area to the left atrial area, and other echocardiographic parameters were assessed relative to baseline.
- Vena contracta and jet area to left atrial area improved (p<0.05 and p<0.005, respectively).
