Mitral valve stenosis

Mitral valve stenosis is a mitral valve dysfunction characterized by 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.
