Heart Valve Problems and Disease
The American Heart Association explains how your heart valves work and any problems or disease your valves can acquire, including regurgitation, stenosis and prolapse.
Symptoms of Heart Valve Problems
Most valve conditions cannot be treated with medication alone. Sometimes the problem is not severe enough to require surgical repair, but it is bothersome enough to cause symptoms or risks. In cases like these, a condition might be effectively managed for a while with medication.
