New pioneering heart valve procedure performed by HeartCare Partners

The HCP Wesley Team

Congratulations to the HeartCare Partners' Structural Heart Team at The Wesley Hospital who performed their first minimally invasive mitral valve repair procedure using the MitraClip System.

The procedure, performed by Dr Sam Hayman, A/Prof Gregory Scalia, Dr Anthony Camuglia and Dr Terri Hall, was a first for Brisbane private hospitals; utilising this innovative technology to perform pioneering keyhole heart valve procedures.

The procedure allows patients with mitral heart valve disease, who cannot undergo open heart surgery, an innovative keyhole method of fixing a leaking heart valve.
