The goal of the study is to identify the patients who get successfully implanted with, and benefit from the implantation of a Profile 3D annuloplasty ring in terms of chronic relief of regurgitation.

Mitral Valve Insufficiency

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: EASE MITRAL Expertise-based Assessment Study on Clinical Efficacy of Profile 3D in MITRAL Valve Annuloplasty

Further study details as provided by Medtronic Bakken Research Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Identify the patient population for which a Profile 3D Annuloplasty Ring is chosen to repair the mitral valve insufficiency. [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assess the percentage of patients that are chronically relieved from mitral valve dysfunction [ Time Frame: 6-12 months follow up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Determine the level of mitral valve regurgitation in patients [ Time Frame: 6-12 months post-surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 150
Study Start Date: March 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 85 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

The patient population includes all patients suffering from mitral valve disease, indicated for a mitral valve repair procedure, either as a stand-alone procedure or concomitant to a coronary artery bypass grafting, an aortic replacement or tricuspid valve repair and/or the treatment of atrial fibrillation, and for which the surgeon considers the implantation of a Profile 3D annuloplasty product most appropriate to reconstruct the regurgitant valve.


Inclusion Criteria:

  • Indicated for a surgical repair for moderate to severe mitral valve regurgitation at rest (level 2 or higher);
  • Willing to return to the hospital where the implantation originally occurred as part of the standard practice of care

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Heavily calcified valves
  • Valvular retraction with severely reduced mobility
  • Active bacterial endocarditis
  • Already participating in another investigational device study, possibly leading to bias and jeopardizing the scientific appropriate assessment of the study endpoints;
  • Life expectancy of less than one year;
  • Pregnant or desire to be pregnant within 12 months of the study treatment;
  • Under 18 years or over 85 years of age.
