Mayo Clinic doctors trained in heart and blood vessel conditions (cardiologists), heart and blood vessel surgery (cardiovascular surgeons), and others study new diagnostic tests and potential treatments for people with mitral valve disease. Mayo Clinic researchers also have studied the most appropriate timing for mitral valve surgery for people with mitral valve disease. Read more about research in the Cardiovascular Research Center.
See a list of publications by Mayo Clinic authors on mitral valve disease on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
