Is it possible for cardiac ablation cause mitral valve problems?

Is it possible for cardiac ablation cause mitral valve problems?

Sure: The mitral valve is a relatively tough structure (it has to be to stand up to 80+ years of brutally forceful contractions) but not tougher than some of the tools used for ablation. A few rare things can damage the valve, particularly when performing atrial fibrillation ablations. That said, these things are rare. Mitral regurgitation is almost always from another cause. Cheers! ...Read more

Valve (Definition)

A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve. This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...Read more

Is it possible for cardiac ablation to cause mitral valve problems?

Not typically: It is unusual for valve damage to occur in the setting of catheter ablation. Damage could occur due to puncture of a valve leaflet or related to extensive ablation around the valve ring. A mapping catheter with a spiral configuration could get caught in the chordae, the strings which attach the valve leaflets to the muscle, and tear one or more of them. ...Read more

What is the possibility of future cardiac intervention once mitral valve replaced(mechanical)?

What is the possibility of future cardiac intervention once mitral valve replaced(mechanical)?

No different: It's no differenct than someone whose mitral valve hasn't been replaced. If you need something to be done and your general health is otherwise okay, it should be done. Naturally, one would prefer to avoid a second open chest surgery, so percutaneous approaches are first considerations, but redos are possible. ...Read more

Does this increase my risk for sudden cardiac death? Is this mitral valve prolapse?, will it get worse with time? Anterior mitral valve leaflet moderately thickened but no stenosis or prolapse.

Does this increase my risk for sudden cardiac death? Is this mitral valve prolapse?, will it get worse with time? Anterior mitral valve leaflet moderately thickened but no stenosis or prolapse.

Dysautonomia - MVP : Dysautonomia is associated with mitral valve prolapse syndrome - neither are usually life threatening but both cause patients anxiety about their symptoms. Read dr. Richard hoffman's book on mvp on amazon.Com. Increase fluid intake, try magnesium supplements. Risk of sudden death is less than chance of winning the powerball lottery. ...Read more

Your symptoms sound like they are due to something else. You need a good physical exam and possibly X-rays medication may be a factor ...Read more

Does mitral valve prolapse cause low energy?

Does mitral valve prolapse cause low energy?

Usually not ...: Mitral valve prolapse occurs when the leaflets of the mitral valve, between the heart's left atrium and ventricle, bulge upward or back into the left atrium as the heart contracts. When more severe, it causes leakage of blood back into the atrium--mitral regurgitation--which can cause fatigue. But the majority of cases of mitral valve prolapse are not this severe and cause few, if any, symptoms. ...Read more

Ablation (Definition)

Cardiac ablation involves destruction of tissue aimed at elimination of sources of origin or propagation of arrhythmias. It may also be used to destroy part of the heart in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Typically it is done with a catheter inserted through a ...Read more
