Heart and Vascular Center recognized for mitral valve repair 

The Heart and Vascular Center at Yale New Haven Hospital has received the Mitral Valve Repair Reference Center Award for 2022 from the American Heart Association and the Mitral Foundation for excellence in mitral valve repair surgery. The award recognizes centers that have superior clinical outcomes and an ongoing commitment to reporting and measuring quality and outcome metrics. Mitral valve reconstruction is associated with improved survival and fewer long-term complications versus valve replacement.
