Mitraclip, an effective device in treatment of heart failure
25 September 2018 Current Affairs:

People with severe heart failure find difficult even in doing mundane tasks. With blood flow impeded throughout their bodies, patients may become breathless simply walking across a room or upstairs. Some must sleep sitting up to avoid gasping for air. There has been no proper measure until now. 
The researchers have recently developed a tiny clip, a device called the MitraClip, which was used to repair the mitral valve by clipping its two flaps together in the middle. That can be inserted into the heart sharply so that it can reduce death rates in patients with severe heart failure. It has been found, after a large clinical trial using a tiny clip, these patients also avoided additional hospitalisation and described a drastically improved quality of life with fewer symptoms.
