AcuNav Volume ICE Catheter

A 38 year old female with significant osetogensis imperfecta, severe scoliosis and severe myxomatous mitral valve insufficiency from bileaflet prolapse was referred for MitraClip. She had an additional history of COPD with CO2 retention and obstructive sleep apnea. She had been experiencing dyspnea, consistent with NYHA III symptoms.

An adult TEE transducer could not be advanced due to the severe scoliosis and pediatric TEE imaging was suboptimal for use in the procedure. TTE, fluoroscopy and volume ICE were used to successfully deploy a MitraClip.
