Mitral Valve Stenosis and Regurgitation

Treatment for Mitral Valve Stenosis and Regurgitation

Our mitral valve team works closely with our Heart Failure and Cardiomyopathy Clinic to provide any additional care you may need.

Innovative, Minimally Invasive Mitral and Tricuspid Valve Therapies
Mitral valve disease is one of the most common heart valve problems, and tricuspid valve disease is a growing concern. Stanford Medicine has several clinical trials exploring new catheter-based valve therapies. Hear Dr. Rahul Sharma explain different types of transcatheter valve procedures and the benefits they provide. For example, MitraClip™ is a small device doctors can place on the mitral valve to reduce leakage. For patients with heart failure, MitraClip is more effective than surgery. And catheter-based procedures are safer than open-heart surgery for high-risk patients.
