Also known as Mitral Valvuloplasty, it is the surgery performed to repair or replace a mitral valve. Mitral valve is the valve located between left atrium and left ventricle and is responsible to ensure smooth blood flow through the heart. The surgery can be either minimally invasive or open depending upon the patient’s condition. The patient might require a mitral valve surgery if the mitral valve is calcified or too loose. The surgery takes about 2-4 hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
