Both complete and partial atrioventricular septal defects can be repaired by surgery. During the surgery, the doctor will both close the hole in the heart’s chambers and reconstruct the valves that have been damaged. The hole is closed during the procedure by applying one or two patches to the septum. These patches will become a permanent fixture of the heart’s septum, as eventually, the lining of the heart will grow over the patches. The mitral valve is also reconstructed during surgery either by repairing it or, if needed, replacing it so that the valve will close tightly enough to regulate the blood flow.
There are many things that can be done in order to manage atrial fibrillation such as undergoing certain procedures and taking certain medicine. With atrial fibrillation the medicine can be taken to aid with controlling the heart rate and preventing blood clots.

MitraClip was made to help people who have mitral valve regurgitation, this is when blood begins flowing backwards through the mitral valve. This procedure is not as invasive as the normal treatment for mitral valve regurgitation and allows the patient to heal faster. This procedure consists of, clipping the mitral valve leaflets together instead of being sutured, like they would be in open heart surgery. This procedure like the TAVR is performed through a catheter inserted through the femoral vein. Open heart surgery is still the preferred treatment for mitral valve regurgitation but this procedure is very important to people who were denied the invasive surgery.
