Mitral regurgitation (MR) has a high prevalence in older patient populations of industrialized nations. Common etiologies are structural, degenerative MR and functional MR secondary to myocardial remodeling. Because of co-morbidities and associated high surgical risk, open surgical mitral repair/ replacement is deferred in a significant percentage of patients. For these patients transcatheter repair/ replacement are emerging as treatment options. Because of the lack of direct visualization, pre-and intraprocedural imaging is critical for these procedures. In this review, we summarize mitral valve anatomy, transcatheter mitral valve replacement (TMVR) options, and imaging in the context of TMVR.
