What if I don’t have any symptoms? Do I still need mitral valve repair surgery?
Only a doctor who specializes in this type of surgery can tell you if you need to go through an intervention or not.
There are patients who do not feel the typical symptoms that indicate a mitral valve disease such as shortness of breath, heart palpitations, chest pain or fatigue. Following a detailed examination, they might, however, discover that they suffer from a valve condition.
You might require valve surgery even in the absence of symptoms if the left ventricle is affected.
Your doctor will be able to tell you if surgery is necessary for you or not.
