Mitral Stenosis

Mitral Stenosis

Mitral stenosis is the medical term for a tight mitral valve. It is a form of structural heart disease. The mitral valve is the valve that sits between the upper chamber (left atrium) and lower chamber (left ventricle) of the left side of the heart, which is considered the main pumping side.

Mitral stenosis usually results from rheumatic fever, but infants can be born with the condition. Mitral stenosis does not cause symptoms unless it is severe. Doctors make the diagnosis after hearing a characteristic heart murmur through a stethoscope placed over the heart, and they use echocardiography to make a more detailed diagnosis. Treatment begins with use of diuretics and beta-blockers or calcium channel blockers. The valve can be stretched open with a catheter, but occasionally the valve needs to be replaced, requiring open-heart surgery.
