Inova Schar Heart and Vascular: Recognized for Excellence in Mitral Valve Repair for the Third Time

Inova Schar Heart and Vascular has once again been recognized with a Mitral Valve Repair Reference Center Award from the American Heart Association and the Mitral Foundation. This marks the third consecutive year of Inova being recognized for a demonstrated record of superior outcomes for degenerative mitral valve repair.

The Mitral Valve Repair Reference Center Award was developed to identify, recognize and promote the nation’s best medical centers for mitral valve repair surgery. Clinical guidelines recommend mitral valve repair over valve replacement as the procedure offers improved survival rates and reduces the risk of long-term complications.

“We are extremely proud of our continued recognition as a Mitral Valve Repair Reference Center. This award reaffirms the efforts and commitment of our multidisciplinary team to maintaining the highest possible standard of patient care in the realm of mitral valve repair.” said Eric L. Sarin, MD, Section Chief, Adult Cardiac Surgery, Co-Director, Structural Heart and Valve Program and Co-Director, Cardiovascular Research at Inova.
