A Balloon Valvotomy Is A Minimally Invasive Procedure. A Doctor Uses A Thin Flexible Tube (Catheter) That Is Inserted Through An Artery In The Groin Or Arm And Threaded Into The Heart.

When The Tube Reaches The Narrowed Mitral Valve, A Balloon Device Located On The Tip Of The Catheter Is Quickly Inflated. The Narrowed Or Fused Mitral Valve Leaflets Are Separated And Stretched Open As The Balloon Presses Against Them. This Process Increases The Size Of The Mitral Valve Opening And Allows More Blood To Flow From The Left Atrium Into The Left Ventricle.
