Valvular Heart Disease

Valvular Heart Disease - What it is

Valvular heart disease is a disorder or disease of the heart valves, which are the tissue flaps that regulate the flow of blood into and out of the chambers of the heart.

Patients with valvular heart disease have a malfunction of one or more of the heart valves. There are several types of valvular heart diseases with distinct symptoms and treatment options.

Problems with heart valves may occur as a result of infections (most commonly infective endocarditis and rheumatic fever), degeneration, or congenital abnormality.
