Mitral Valve Disease
What Are Mitral Valve Conditions?
The mitral valve is a heart valve that rests between the left atrium and left ventricle.
It regulates blood flow from the atrium to the ventricle during heart contraction. When the valve fails to function properly, blood can flow back into the atrium, which is known as mitral valve insufficiency or regurgitation. If blood flow is blocked, it’s called mitral valve stenosis. Both conditions can lead to heart failure.
Mitral valve conditions are usually congenital (present at birth), but they also can develop later in life due to age-related changes or other conditions such as rheumatic fever. Depending on the severity of the problem, treatment may include lifestyle modifications, drugs, and surgery.
