Is it possible to have mitral valve repair done and not to have any leakage afterwards.. Or will you still have a minimal anount of leakage still?

In brief: Minor leckage

Mild leak is always possible.

Almost always we see some leakage.

In brief: MV Repair Question

A mild degree of leakage after repair is altogether a bad thing.
A worse outcome would be to not have a leak after repair but instead have mitral stenosis.
