Mitral valve disease

  • Antonio F. Corno


In this Chapter only congenital malformations of the mitral valve are considered, excluding atrioventricular septal defects, which are separately treated (see chapter “Atrioventricular septal defects”), as well as mitral atresia (see chapter “Hypoplastic left heart syndrome”).
