Mitral bite (MiT-BiTe) is a novel hybrid device for the treatment of mitral regurgitation, both primary (organic such as prolapse / flail) and secondary (functional).
The system can be used either during conventional heart surgery or for percutaneous purposes (femoral approach / trans septal).
It can be also used for correcting tricuspid regurgitation (TR) (Tri-Bite)Access Site
