Mitral valve disease

This used to be associated with a history of rheumatic fever but now is more commonly degenerative.

Echocardiography is particularly helpful in defining the detail of the problem.  The echocardiogram may be in 3D.  Surgery to replace or repair the mitral valve may be recommended under some circumstances. Percutaneous mitral valve repair may also be considered for some types of leaky valve.
