Percutaneous intervention at San Filippo

Eliminate mitral valve insufficiency with Carillon system.

Cutting-edge intervention at the Hemodynamics Department of San Filippo Neri in Rome, directed by Prof. Giulio Speciale. An operation was in fact carried out with the Carillon system, to eliminate mitral valve insufficiency.

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