Mitral Valve Stenosis​ - Treatments

Patients with mild to moderate mitral valve stenosis and no symptoms might not need immediate treatment. Instead, the doctor will monitor the mitral valve to check if the condition worsens.


Currently, there is no medication available that can correct a mitral valve defect. However, certain medicines can help reduce symptoms of mitral valve stenosis. These medication include:
  • Antibiotics (recommended before any invasive procedure)
  • Anti-arrhythmics
  • Blood thinners (anticoagulants)
  • Beta blockers or calcium channel blockers
  • Diuretics

For some cases, valve repair or valve replacement is necessary. The treatment options include surgical methods (mitral valve repair or replacement) or less -invasive methods such as percutaneous transmitral commissurotomy (PTMC).
