Mitral Valve Replacement Risks

Every medical procedure carries risks, and a mitral valve replacement is no exception. Minor complications can range from nausea and vomiting to an allergic skin reaction to atrial fibrillation. Major risks include failure of the mitral valve replacement, infection, and nerve or organ damage. Your healthcare provider will discuss all this with you and assess your level of risk based on your current health and if any other medical conditions are present.
