Mitral Valve Repair
Mount Sinai Heart is a national leader in mitral valve repair surgery. The superiority of mitral valve repair over replacement with a mechanical or bioprosthetic valve is now well established. Mount Sinai Heart offers patients one of the highest percentages of successful valve repair anywhere in the world.
In patients with mitral valve prolapse, our success rate in avoiding valve replacement approaches 100%. We also have mitral valve repair expertise for patients with advanced cardiomyopathy. If patients have associated atrial fibrillation, we offer the latest in concomitant arrhythmia surgery, including the MAZE procedure. We can also perform mitral valve repair with minimally invasive approaches, when appropriate.
- Our mitral valve repair rates (99%) and quality (<1% mortality) are national benchmarks
- We are recognized world-wide for our work with Prof. Alain Carpentier and are the highest volume users of Carpentier Rings in the United States
- We have a dedicated team that focuses on all aspects of the care of mitral valve repair patients
