Options for Heart Valve Replacement
Learn about the different types of heart valve replacement - most commonly the aortic valve and mitral valves.
Risks for Heart Valve Problems
Learn who is at risk of having heart valve problems, or valvular heart disease.
Understanding Your Heart Valve Treatment Options
Recovery statistics are very good for people who receive proper treatment of their heart valve problems. Learn about the different treatment options available.
Premature Contractions - PACs and PVCs
A premature contraction feels like your heart "skipped a beat." Premature atrial contractions (PACs) start in the upper chambers of the heart (atria). Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) start in the lower chambers of the heart (ventricles).
Newer Heart Valve Surgery Options
People with high risks and severe aortic valve tightness may be good candidates for a less invasive repair or an alternative treatment called a transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR)
Problem: Aortic Valve Stenosis
Aortic stenosis (or AS) is a narrowing of the aortic valve opening. Learn how it affects the heart valve and what you can do about it.
Heart Valve Diagnosis Criteria
As you prepare for heart valve testing for a complete diagnosis, there are several criteria used to determine your particular needs.
Problem: Tricuspid Valve Regurgitation
Tricuspid regurgitation is leakage of blood backwards through the tricuspid valve each time the right ventricle contracts. Learn about ongoing care of this condition.
Heart Valve Awareness: Seek Clarity About Your Risks
Educate yourself about your heart valve disease by recognizing and monitoring your risks and working closely with your doctor.
"Innocent" Heart Murmur
Although some heart murmurs do indicate heart valve problems, many heart murmurs are considered to be ?innocent? or harmless. Learn about ongoing care of this condition.
