At Baylor Scott & White Health, we offer several kinds of mitral valve repair procedures to restore mitral valve functioning.
Traditionally, mitral valve repair is performed through open-heart surgery. Although safe and effective, this method is invasive and requires a longer recovery period. However, less invasive catheter-based mitral valve replacements—such as the MitraClip®—are now offered.
MitraClip® insertion is a new type of transcatheter mitral valve repair now offered as a viable alternative for those who are not good candidates for surgery.
