Exploring Mitral Valve Disorders and Treatments with Dr. Srinivasa Prasad BV

The mitral valve plays a crucial role in maintaining proper blood flow through the heart. When functioning correctly, it ensures blood moves efficiently from the left atrium to the left ventricle without backflow. However, various conditions can affect the mitral valve, leading to complications that require medical intervention. As an experienced interventional cardiologist in Bangalore, I, Dr. Srinivasa Prasad BV, specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of mitral valve disorders, offering patients advanced care options tailored to their individual needs.

Understanding the Mitral Valve

Angiography is a diagnostic procedure used to visualize the blood vessels and identify any blockages or abnormalities. This technique is particularly valuable for detecting coronary artery disease, which occurs when the coronary arteries are narrowed or blocked, restricting blood flow to the heart.

Common Mitral Valve Disorders

Several conditions can affect the mitral valve, including

Mitral Valve Prolapse

When the valve leaflets bulge back into the left atrium during contraction.

Mitral Valve Regurgitation

When the valve doesn't close properly, causing blood to leak back into the left atrium.

Mitral Valve Stenosis

When the valve becomes narrowed, restricting blood flow from the left atrium to the left ventricle.

1. Physical Examination

Listening to heart sounds and assessing symptoms.

2. Echocardiography

Ultrasound imaging to visualize the structure and function of the mitral valve.

3. Cardiac MRI or CT Scan

Advanced imaging techniques for detailed assessment.

Treatment Options

Treatment for mitral valve disorders depends on the severity of the condition and its impact on the patient’s health. Options may include:

1. Medication

To manage symptoms and slow disease progression.

2. Valvuloplasty

Balloon valvuloplasty to open narrowed valves (particularly in mitral valve stenosis).

3. Valve Repair

Surgical repair to restore the valve's function (especially for mitral valve prolapse or regurgitation).

4. Valve Replacement

Surgical replacement with a mechanical or biological valve for severe cases.
