Mitral Valve Disease

Mitral valve diseases are a group of heart abnormalities that involve the mitral valve, which is one of the four valves in the heart that ensure blood flow in the correct direction. These diseases can disrupt the normal flow of blood through the heart, leading to various health complications.

The most common types of mitral valve disease are mitral valve prolapse (MVP), mitral valve regurgitation, and mitral valve stenosis.

Treatment for mitral valve diseases depends on the severity and type of the disease. It can range from lifestyle changes and medication to surgical interventions like valve repair or replacement. Regular monitoring is crucial in managing these conditions.

At Corrielus Cardiology, we are dedicated to your heart health and are here to help guide you in your heart-healthy journey. 

Mitral Valve Prolapse

Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is a common heart valve disease that occurs when the flaps of the mitral valve bulge, or "prolapse," into the left atrium during heart contraction. This condition can lead to a leakage of blood, known as mitral valve regurgitation. 

Although not typically life-threatening, severe MVP cases may necessitate treatment such as medication or surgery.

Mitral Valve Regurgitation

Mitral valve regurgitation is a common cardiac disorder characterized by improper mitral valve closure, resulting in the backward flow of blood. It is the most common type of heart valve disease. It can leave you feeling very tired and short of breath.

Mitral Valve Stenosis

Mitral valve stenosis (MS) is a form of valvular heart disease that is characterized by the narrowing of the mitral valve orifice, obstructing the normal flow of blood between the heart chambers. Basically, it means that your mitral valve is smaller than it should be, so blood can’t move as it should on the left side of your heart.

This disorder can significantly reduce the amount of blood that flows forward to the body, potentially leading to a range of health complications.
