MitraClip Patient Success Story: Charlotte Cummings

Charlotte Cummings, 81, suffered from mitral regurgitation. She was tired all the time and could no longer walk the streets of her beloved hometown of Chicago. Then, Charlotte heard about the MitraClip, a non-invasive mitral vale repair device. The MitraClip minimizes the back-flow of blood across the mitral valve so the heart can work better. Watch this inspirational patient success story to learn how the MitraClip helped Charlotte regain the ability to walk and enjoy life. The MitraClip procedure was performed by Dr. Chris Malaisrie, a leading cardiac surgeon, and the heart team at Northwestern Medicine in Chicago that includes Dr. Mark Ricciardi, cardiologist.
