Reasons for a Mitral Valve Replacement

Reasons for a Mitral Valve Replacement: An Overview

Based on a person's past medical history, current symptoms, physical exam, and special tests, the doctor may recommend a procedure called a mitral valve replacement.
Over time, a defective mitral valve may cause lung, kidney, or even liver problems. The goal of a mitral valve replacement is to remove this diseased or defective mitral valve, which is inside the heart, and replace it with another valve.
In most cases, mitral valve replacement surgery can improve the symptoms caused by a defective valve, such as shortness of breath, fainting, fatigue, and swelling in the legs.
