What is Mitral Valve Repair?

Valve Replacement or Repair is used to repair or replace diseased the four valves in your heart: Aortic valve, Mitral valve, Tricuspid valve, and Pulmonary valve.


Theses valves control the direction of blood flow through your heart. The opening and closing of theses heart valves produce the sound of heartbeat.


A Good Candidate for Mitral Valve Repair

Heart valve surgery can be recommended for those with the following conditions:

· Narrowing of the heart valve (stenosis)

· Leaking of the heart valve (regurgitation)


Valve problems may be caused by the following:

· Birth defects

· Calcium deposits (calcification)

· Infections such as rheumatic fever

· Medications


Some defective heart valves can cause congestive heart failure and infections (infective endocarditis).
