Hospitalizações são ruins e caras.

The primary effectiveness endpoint, HF hospitalization at 24 months for MitraClip + GDMT vs. GDMT, was 35.8% vs. 67.9% (hazard ratio [HR] 0.53, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.40-0.70, p < 0.001). The primary safety endpoint, freedom from device-related complications at 12 months, was 96.6% for MitraClip (p < 0.001).

The results of this landmark trial indicate that transcatheter mitral valve approximation using the MitraClip on a background of maximally tolerated GDMT was superior to GDMT alone in reducing HF hospitalization and mortality in symptomatic HF patients with grade 3-4+ MR.
