Heart Valve Disease

The heart acts as a pump to distribute blood throughout the body. It has four compartments, two upper (atria) and two lower (ventricles). Before leaving these compartments, the blood passes through parts of the heart that act like gates called heart valves.

There are four valves: the mitral, aortic, tricuspid and pulmonary. Each one serves a special purpose and helps control the blood flow so that the body can continue to function well.

The valves of the heart open and close to regulate the blood flow into the heart and then away from the heart. Heart valve disease occurs when one or more of the four heart valves don’t work rightly.

Any valve in the heart can become diseased. A healthy heart valve can completely open and close during the heartbeat, whereas diseased valves can’t.

A heart valve disease can appear from two primary conditions that include the following.
