Transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) has emerged as a viable treatment option for patients with degenerative or functional severe mitral regurgitation (MR) who are at high risk for mitral valve surgery but have mitral valve anatomy suitable for TEER. The MitraClip and Pascal repair system are the two TEER devices currently approved for clinical use for transcatheter treatment of MR in selected patients. Of these two, the MitraClip has become a more established modality for TEER and is currently available in India. This review describes the role of echocardiography in patient selection and procedural guidance during TEER with MitraClip.
