Info on Mitral Valve Replacement

During a mitral valve replacement, a person's diseased mitral valve is removed and replaced with another valve -- either a synthetic valve or one that comes from the heart of an animal. The surgery is successful in most cases, and people have fewer symptoms after it. Risks can range from minor bleeding and nausea to serious infections and organ failure. A person's risk for problems is often related to their overall health and if any other medical conditions are present.
