Almost all of our BASILICA cases are done under GA because we are using TEE to provide image-guidance along with flouroscopy.

Good question: GCA was performed intentionally by 1st grasping AML & then PML - only after multiple attempts of simultaneous grasping had failed (never had both leaflets in the 📎). So not a Tarzan maneuver.

Please note that medial commissural pathology requires a higher ⬆️transseptal puncture site. If too low, this limits maneuverability of the clip delivery system (CDS) above the commissure. Ok to be ⬇️ for lateral pathology as CDS will gain elevation as advanced laterally.

Thank you Bob. I think as imagers we really have to closely watch out to ensure the Clip is not rotating after the 1st unilateral grasp. Have seen that happening a few times.

Controlled Gripper Actuation with the Gen 4 MitraClip system offers ability to grasp MV leaflets independently. 👀how posterior MV leaflet is being grasped individually (following anterior grasp). Great work🙌by

You know it’s time to go home after a long night on call with the heart shock team ( & , PAC) when your resident starts seeing a face of a sloth in your 4-valve 3D TEE 😉.

I have seen up to 11! Reminiscent of the rooftops of the old town of Tallin in Estonia.

1/5: Excited to share our work, out today in . We found that pts had improved post-tx survival when transplanted at the highest volume center in each region. With @StephenDolgnerMD, , Eric Krieger.
