Percutaneous intervention at San Filippo

Eliminate mitral valve insufficiency with the Carillon system.

State-of-the-art intervention at the Hemodynamics Department of San Filippo Neri in Rome, directed by Prof. Giulio Speciale. An intervention with the Carillon system was in fact carried out, for the elimination of a mitral valve insufficiency.

The Carillon system is revolutionary and was adopted for the first time in Lazio (the third in Italy). It is a percutaneous "intervention" during which the "music box" (a flexible semicircular structure) is inserted into a large vein of the heart (coronary sinus), through the puncture of a vein in the neck. All this happens without anesthesia. This small element is able to embrace the mitral valve, progressively narrowing it and in this way the insufficiency of the same is eliminated.
