Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Surgery, the advent of Mitral valve repair techniques and their application through a minimally invasive approach mark two major milestones in the history and evolution of minimally invasive mitral valve surgery.
Mitral valve of heart. At top (white) is the mitral valve attached by tendonous cords (chordae tendineae) to a papillary muscle at lower left. Papillary muscles open and close the valve, .got mine repaired.
When initially described in the mitral valve prolapse (MVP) was known as ‘floppy valve syndrome.’ The underlying process making the valve floppy is technically termed ‘myxomatous degeneration,’ which literally means jellylike transfor
The first gene in which mutations cause the common form of mitral valve prolapse, a heart valve disorder that affects almost percent of the population, has been identified by an international team of researchers.
