This review focuses on the selection criteria and timing of percutaneous edge-to-edge mitral valve repair in patients with functional or degenerative mitral valve regurgitation. Echocardiographic imaging is the first-line approach for the evaluation of mitral valve patients, providing crucial information on the severity and functional anatomy of regurgitant valve lesions considered for percutaneous repair. In particular, we report the echocardiographic parameters and clinical variables for patient selection before MitraClip Therapy.
