Do you know anyone who has mitral valve problem? Even if you don't know someone who has such a problem, I've found a website where you can find info about mitral valve disorders. I sure do hope that nobody I know has this kind of problem, since it sounds so serious as it involves the valve that pumps to the left ventricle of our heart. If the valve doesn't close well, blood will flow into our lungs. If the valve doesn't open well, then blood can't flow well from the lungs to the rest of our body parts.
The website provides information about mitral valve repair as well as mitral valve surgery. After all, it's much better not to undergo a surgery if you can avoid it, don't you think so? And do you know that there's now also a videoscopic minimally invasive mitral valve repair? This is a much better option for patients as their breastbone doesn't have to be cut open to repair the valve. If you're wondering about this procedure, just click on one of the links!
On a last note, I hope that all of us stay healthy so that we don't have to go through any repair or surgery procedure! Cheers to health! :-)))
