Coronary Sinus (CS) to mitral valve annulus (MVA) distance and angle might predict echocardiographic response to the Carillon device implantation (distance < 6.9mm and angle < 14.2°) (1). We present a case of a 73-year-old male with aortic valve replacement 10 years ago, who underwent Carillon implantation due to functional mitral valve regurgitation (FMR). The intervention did not result in an improvement of echocardiographic FMR parameters up to 9-months (EROA baseline: 0.21cm2, post-implant: 0.22cm2 and 9-months-follow-up: 0.29cm2; Figure 1A).
