Mitral valve stenosis

Mitral valve stenosis is a mitral valve dysfunction characterized by the narrowing of the orifice of the mitral valve. The most common cause of mitral stenosis is rheumatic fever and the valve problems may show up 5-10 years or more after the incidence of rheumatic fever. Other factors, such as calcium deposits around the heart can also cause mitral stenosis.


Inoue® Catheter

The Inoue® catheter for PTMC (percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy) is indicated for patients with mitral valve stenosis.
