SURGERY FOR REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE MITRAL VALVE
Repair and replacement of the aortic valve are procedures that can be performed to treat diseases of the mitral valve, which is the valve between the cardiac cavities.
Some diseases of the aortic valve that may require its repair or replacement:
Prolapse of the mitral valve: The fins (valves) of this valve do not close properly, which causes blood leaks that return to the left atrium
Mitral stenosis: The leaflets swell or become rigid and can fuse. This causes a narrow opening of the valve and a decrease in blood flow through the valve.
Treatment for mitral valve disease depends on the severity of the condition. Doctors may recommend surgery to repair or replace the mitral valve.
There are many procedures to repair or replace the mitral valve, such as open-heart surgery or minimally invasive cardiac surgery.
Repair surgery and replacement of the mitral valve can involve the following risks:
Valvular dysfunction in replacement valves
Heart rhythm problems
