Re: mitro valve regurgatation?

Hi, it is a back flow of blood between the pumping chamber. It means that the valve does not close properly which allows blood to leak back. Usually, no treatment is needed if the regurgitation is mild, but if the leak is severe, a surgery to replace the valve is needed. Your doctor might tell you whether you need antibiotics before any dental procedures, surgery. It is to prevent infection of the heart valves. So are you going back to your cardiologist?

Re: mitro valve regurgatation?

i haven't been back to the dr. since the nurse called me with the results. she said it was mild and no treatment for now. i am awaiting my blood work results which i should have on monday. i was tested for lyme and was wondering if a lyme infection could be the cause?
