Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Device and Procedural Success [ Time Frame: During the investigational procedure ]

    The primary objective is to evaluate the technical feasibility and acute device deployment characteristics of the SJM PMVr Device.

    Technical feasibility and deployment characteristics will be defined as:

    • The ability of the delivery system to access the mitral valve
    • The ability of the device to capture mitral valve (MV) leaflet tissue
    • Ability to plicate MV leaflet tissue
    • The clip is able to be deployed in MV leaflet tissue
    • The delivery system is able to be removed.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Quantification of SAEs reported that are unique to the investigational procedure [ Time Frame: Through 6 weeks post-implantation ]
    The secondary objective is to evaluate safety of the SJM PMVr device by summarizing SAEs unique to accessing the valve, placing the clip, and removing the delivery system.

Enrollment: 2
Study Start Date: December 2011
Study Completion Date: August 2012
Primary Completion Date: June 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Intevention-PMVr Procedure Device: PMVr procedure (SJM Percutaneous Mitral Valve Repair (PMVr)
A maximum of ten (10) subjects will receive a percutaneous mitral valve clip procedure.

Detailed Description:
Subjects will be followed-up through 6 weeks post implantation.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject has symptomatic or asymptomatic moderate (2+) or severe (3-4+) mitral regurgitation.
  • Subject has an ejection fraction (EF) ≥ 30%.
  • Subject is of legal age (≥18 years old).
  • Subject is planned to undergo surgical repair or replacement of the mitral valve for symptomatic or asymptomatic posterior leaflet mitral prolapse.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject requires a complex mitral valve repair or has isolated anterior prolapse.
  • Subject has mitral valve stenosis in which the annulus opening is <10mm. Subject has valve disease other than mitral which requires surgical intervention.
  • Subject requires a concomitant procedure.
  • Subject has a pre-existing prosthetic valve in any position.
  • Subject had stenting or PCI within 6 months before the planned procedure, or is anticipated to require stenting or PCI within 6 months post-procedure.
  • Subject has calcification of the mitral leaflets or annulus which in the medical opinion of the surgical investigator would limit repair and /or implantation of the investigational device.
  • Subject has renal insufficiency or is on chronic dialysis.
  • Subject has had a cerebral vascular accident (CVA) or transient ischemic attack (TIA) within the past 6 months.
  • Subject has a history of endocarditis or has active endocarditis.
  • Subject has a history of autoimmune disease.
  • Subject has significant known carotid artery disease.
  • Subject has an aorto-mitral angle of <110 degrees.
  • Subject has hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HOCM's Disease).
