A 79-year-old woman with a history of ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy, severely depressed left ventricular ejection fraction and significant mitral regurgitation (MR) was admitted to the authors´ institution for percutaneous mitral valve repair. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) revealed the presence of a posterior mitral cleft at the P2 level, causing a trileaflet mitral valve that


contributed significantly to the regurgitant jet. The procedure was performed under general anesthesia and guided by real-time three-dimensional TEE. Three MitraClip® devices (Abbott Vascular, Santa Clara, CA, USA) were implanted, which reduced the MR to grade 1+.
