Supplementary Material

Supplemental Movie 1. Because of the sclerotic interatrial septum, we had to use a SafeSept® wire to cross the septum. Subsequently, balloon dilatation of the interatrial septum over the transseptal guidewire were carried out to be able to gain sufficient access to the left atrium.

Supplemental Movie 2. Because of a mechanical obstruction in the tortuous right common iliac vein advancing the MitraClip® steering guide or a commonly used dilator was not possible over the ultrastiff wire (Amplatz, Cook Medical, Bloomington, IN), even when using a second superstiff buddy wire.

Supplemental Movie 3. PTA using balloons with increasing diameter of up to 10 mm was carried out to overcome the mechanical obstruction of the iliac vein.
