Summary

The provider performs a valvuloplasty, which is a surgical repair of the mitral valve or subvalvular structures to correct mitral stenosis or subvalvular fibrosis with the patient on a heart–lung machine to reroute the circulation of blood and bypass the heart and lungs. The provider may insert a band or ring around the anulus to correct mitral insufficiency if the valve is leaking due to annular dilatation.
