Medication For Mitral Valve Disease

Medications may provide symptomatic relief of mitral valve disease but will not reverse or correct the disease. Medication cannot stop a leaking valve (regurgitation) and cannot loosen a narrowed valve (stenosis).

Your cardiologist will determine what medications will work best for your symptoms. Medications may include:

  • Diuretics to promote urination
  • Digoxin to help the heart beat more strongly
  • Blood thinners such as aspirin or prescription medications

Serial testing and physician counseling to carefully monitor symptoms will help determine the optimal time for heart valve surgery or a transcatheter heart valve procedure.
