This photo is from a MitraClip procedure during the University of Colorado visit last December.

Ten out of the top 25 videos in 2019 are from hospital site visits DAIC conducted and shot more than 10 video interviews and recorded cath lab procedures at each center.  Two of the videos here are walk throughs of cath labs, showing how Henry Ford Hospital and the University of Colorado set up their main hybrid rooms for structural heart procedures. This photo is from a MitraClip procedure during the University of Colorado visit last December.
