Mitral valve insufficiency is the most common disease of the mitral valve. In this case, the mitral valve is leaking, which leads to a partial return of the blood in the direction of the lungs. As a result, the heart has to work harder to maintain its pumping power. This is often noticeable by respiratory distress.
The diagnosis is usually determined by a cardiac ultrasound examination. Mitral valve regurgitation can result from degeneration of the valve or an enlargement of the left ventricle that pulls the mitral valve apart. In the first case one speaks of a primary Mitralklappeninsuffizienz. It is the more common form. It is usually caused by an extension or a tear of tendon threads, whereby the sails no longer meet on one level. When one sail protrudes over the other, we speak of a mitral sail prolapse. In this case one speaks of secondary mitral valve insufficiency.
High-grade mitral valve insufficiency requires surgery. In more than 90 percent of cases, the mitral valve flap can be repaired (reconstructed) and the tightness of the flap can be restored. Only in some cases does a replacement have to be made by a biological or a mechanical heart valve prosthesis.
