ProceduresMitral ValveMitral Valve Repair Surgery

    While initially, most valves had to be replaced, the mitral valve can now be successfully repaired in over 90% of patients with mitral valve regurgitation. Mitral valve repair has significant advantages over replacement, as it is associated with better long term outcomes and less need for future surgery. Repair techniques are varied, but generally involve reconstructing the patient's own valvular tissue to produce better coaptation of the valve leaflets. Additionally, a ring or band is placed in the mitral annulus, which provides structural support for the repaired valve.
