In brief: Possibly
Mitral stenosis, depending on the epidemiology of where acquired, is a slowly, but naturally, progressive process that may require some intervention if symptoms or cardiac function are adversely affected.
Beta-blockers may be useful to control associated arrhythmia, & antibiotics to avoid development of a valvular infection (endocarditis). Close monitoring by exam & echocardiography is required.

In brief: Possibly
Inderol is a potent beta blocker which can help control rhythms.
Mitral stenosis can lead to rapid heart rates. Also a slow heart rate gives the heart more time to fill which it needs in mitral stenosis. The tight valve blocks filling of the heart. Antibiotics (usually pills though) are used to prevent the valve from getting infected (endocarditis). This done before procedures and dental visits.
