Mitral Regurgitation

By December 16, 2013

Follow me on:

Mitral regurgitation - a "leaky" mitral valve - is the most common of the heart valve abnormalities, and can be one of the most difficult to evaluate and treat. It can lead to severe symptoms, heart failure, and heart arrhythmias. The appropriate treatment of mitral regurgitation requires careful and regular medical evaluations - and it requires you to pay attention to how you're feeling.
