Mitral Valve Replacement Usage

Written by FoundHealth.

Reasons for Procedure

Healthy heart valves permit one-way flow of blood. Diseased valves either leak, causing back flow, or narrow, restricting flow. In either case, the condition can be life-threatening. Sometimes the valve can be repaired. At other times it must be replaced.

Rheumatic fever , infections, congenital defects (defects at birth), and degenerative disease (wear and tear) are the most common causes of mitral valve problems.
