In brief: Yes

There are medications which can help in managing mitral stenosis.
They include diuretics and blood pressure medicines and rhythm control medicines. There is a report which shows statins may slow the disease in those pts with rheumatic heart disease of the aortic valve. Unfortunately the natural course if for it to worsen and many times you will need more aggressive treatment.

Yes. Diuretics and beta blockers however mitral stenosis will lead to death if the valve area is less than 1 cm2 and it remains untreated (surgically).
