Mitral Valve Stenosis And Mitral Valve Replacement

Mitral valve stenosis happens when the mitral valve – which regulates blood flow between the upper and lower chambers in the left side of the heart – is narrowed. Mitral valve stenosis can lead eventually to heart failure or heart infections or stroke. Mitral valve replacement, an open heart surgery, is performed when the mitral valve is too damaged to be repaired.

Alternative treatment is Balloon valvuloplasty.Balloon valvuloplasty is performed using a catheter, i.e. a very thin flexible tube which can be inserted into the body, with a balloon at the end. The balloon is put inside the valve and is expanded thus stretching the valve and bringing it back to its normal size. For more info: heart-consult.com/articles.

Patients undergoing mitral valve replacement are susceptible to the following risks. Bleeding, infection, complex reaction to anesthetic. The risk involved in most cases can be determined by the physician and it depends on a variety of factors such as the patient’s age, general condition, specific medical problems and heart functions.
