What is Mitral atresia?

  • Mitral atresia: A rare defect where the mitral valve is closed off. The mitral valve connects the two chambers on the left side of the heart (atrium and ventricle). The blood is therefore unable to flow between the two heart chambers.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Mitral atresia as a "rare disease".
