If you or someone you love has a leaky heart valve, you probably already know that it affects their quality of life in many ways. Although traditional surgery is sometimes used to treat leaky valves, there is now a minimally invasive procedure that offers patients a better quality of life and just makes them feel better.
Baptist Heart physicians use this minimally invasive procedure to access the mitral valve with a thin tube and attach a small implanted clip to the mitral valve that helps it close more completely thereby giving the heart a more normal blood flow. It takes less than three hours and patients are only in the hospital 1-3 days. Additional benefits include less risk of mortality and fewer hospitalizations.
