Mitre Medical is an early stage medical device company developing the Mitral Touch®, a less invasive and safer approach to treat mitral valve regurgitation (MR) in patients with moderate to severe MR.
The Mitral Touch epicardial ring allows surgeons to treat the vast majority of their patients with moderate to severe MR for whom solutions with acceptable risks do not exist today. The Mitral Touch device is placed epicardially, around the external surface of the beating heart, eliminating the need to be on-pump. Using the Mitral Touch device, surgeons are able to confirm MR reduction on a beating heart prior to implantation of the device.
