Heart valve disease

Valvular heart disease is any disease process involving one or more of the four valves of the heart. Collectively and anatomically, the valves are part of the dense connective tissue makeup of the heart known as the cardiac skeleton. Valve problems may be congenital or acquired. Treatment may be with medication but often involves valve repair or replacement. Specific situations include those where additional demands are made on the circulation, such as in pregnancy.
