Amrita Valve Repair Centre

The mitral valve is one of the major valves in the heart located between the two left sided chambers of your heart. It basically functions to allow uni-directional flow of blood from the upper to the lower chamber. It has two leaflets which ensure the competency of the valve. Occasionally one or both of the leaflets may abnormally bulge back into the upper chamber causing a condition called mitral valve prolapse. This can over time lead to backward leak of blood through the valve a condition called mitral regurgitation. In the initial stages mitral regurgitation is managed by your Cardiologist using a variety of available medications. However if the leak progresses to a severe degree then surgery becomes the only option as long standing severe leak will lead to harmful effects on the heart and lungs.

Only in cases where it is deemed that the valve is not repairable should mitral valve replacement be done with artificial valves which may be mechanical or tissue valves.Here at Amrita, we have extensive experience with mitral valve repairs over the years and we offer it as the first choice to patients who come with mitral regurgitation.
