Heart animation: Mitral valve repair



Abbott’s MitraClip device can be used to stop mitral valve regurgitation. In a healthy heart, freshly oxygenated blood flows one-way through the heart and the mitral valve closes afterward. However, if the mitral valve doesn’t close properly, backflow occurs. If left untreated, this may cause heart failure and death. Surgery is usually used to repair mitral valve defects; however, this may not be feasible for all patients. MitraClip is a minimally invasive method of repairing the mitral valve. The clip is positioned over the defective valve enabling it to close completely and stop backflow.

The Mitral Valve Repair animation demonstrates the intricate mechanisms behind this device, taking the viewer on a unique journey through the body until reaching the mitral valve.

‘‘Their turnaround time sets them apart from the rest of the field. The fact they can turnaround lots of comments in a couple of days is impressive, whereas that took weeks with other agencies we worked with. They’re well above the benchmark.

‘‘It was a combination equally of quality of work but also the comfort and confidence that I knew I would be working with PhDs. They gave me the confidence that they would have the ability to understand. The other companies didn’t have those sorts of people on staff, they were just good animators. That was the area where I felt that I could trust Random42 would deliver.’’
