Mitral Valve Disease weakens the heart and may lead to heart failure. When the mitral valve isn’t functioning as it should, blood flows backwards and the heart cannot supply the body with enough oxygen, causing fatigue and shortness of breath. Left untreated, Mitral Valve Disease can lead to an irregular heartbeat and heart failure.
