In brief: Mitral stenosis
If severe, mitral stenosis is treated either with balloon valvuloplasty if the valve is not too calcified, or valve replacement.

In brief: Surgery
If it's causing symptoms, it requires intervention: either with a catheter (vavlulplasty) or with surgery (commissurotomy or valve replacement, depending on your age and the severity of the valve).
