Is mitral valve repair usually successful?
Statistically speaking and based on our experience with this type of intervention, we can say that mitral valve repair is a successful procedure.
In more than 95% of cases the desired outcome is achieved, so mitral valve repair is a highly successful procedure.
The most common cause that raises the need to have such a surgery is a degenerative mitral valve disease. This condition is more often known as mitral valve prolapse or floppy mitral valve. It is easier and more efficient to repair these valves than replace them. Almost all of the patients who undergo a repair procedure achieve positive results.
