Computed Tomography Planning for Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement

Struct Heart. 2022 Apr 26;6(1):100012. doi: 10.1016/j.shj.2022.100012. eCollection 2022 Apr.


Transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) is a rapidly evolving treatment for mitral regurgitation. As with transcatheter aortic valve replacement, multidetector computed tomography analysis plays a central role in defining the candidacy, device selection and safety for TMVR procedures. This contemporary review will describe in detail the multidetector computed tomography data collection, analysis, and planning for TMVR procedures in patients with native mitral regurgitation as well as in those with failed surgical prosthetic mitral valve replacement or surgical mitral valve repair.

Keywords: MDCT; Mitral regurgitation; TMVR.
