Severe aortic valve stenosis (AVS) and mitral valve regurgitation (MVR) often coexist. Although a fully percutaneous treatment for the two conditions, by means of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) followed by MitraClip, can be appealing in selected high-risk candidates, critical and strategical reasoning should be applied. In a 3-year period we have developed a single-centre experience of 14 patients who were managed with a staged percutaneous approach to treat severe AVS and MVR. The average interval from TAVI to MitraClip repair was 101 ± 12 days. Success for TAVI was 100% and 92.9% (13/14) for MitraClip. At late follow-up, 3 patients developed MVR 3+. Estimated 1‑year survival was 66.5%. Freedom from 1‑year endpoint (death, stroke, major bleeding, myocardial infarction, and cardiac re-hospitalisation) was 57.9%.
In our view, a fully transcatheter approach for mitro-aortic pathology is feasible and should be performed only as a staged procedure in those patients that remain symptomatic, in spite of successful TAVI. It should be emphasised that although the periprocedural success rate is satisfactory, follow-up mortality and re-hospitalisation rates remain high, even at mid-term follow-up. This most probably results from the advanced clinical picture at time of referral for treatment.
