Mitral regurgitation (MR) is a condition in which the heart’s mitral valve leaflets do not close tightly. When this happens, blood flows backward from the heart’s left ventricle into the left atrium. The heart must then work harder to push blood through the body, which can cause fatigue, shortness of breath and worsening heart failure. It is the most common type of heart valve insufficiency.
A pacemaker is a small device that it is placed under the skin in your chest to help control your heartbeat. People may need a pacemaker for many reasons, mostly due to arrhythmias, in which the heart's rhythm is abnormal. The VR pacemaker has one lead that connects the pulse generator to one chamber of your heart. For most people, we use the single-chamber pacemaker to control heartbeat pacing by connecting the lead to your right ventricle (lower heart chamber).
