Abstract

The MitraClip procedure is an emerging endovascular technique for treating mitral regurgitation and an attractive alternative for patients who are at high risk for open heart mitral valve repair or replacement. We present the case of a failed redo MitraClip procedure that led to acute right ventricular failure in a patient with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia and a preexisting secundum atrial septal defect. We highlight the sequelae of the failed redo MitraClip procedure and the anesthetic challenges associated with the emergent redo sternotomy and cardiopulmonary bypass procedure required to replace the mitral valve and repair the tricuspid valve and atrial septal defect.
