Heart valve disease

Heart valve disease

Heart valve disease is a collection of diseases and conditions that affect the valves of the heart. Infections are the most common reason why valves of the heart malfunction and most often these conditions are life threatening. There are different valves in the heart and one or more of these could be affected at the same time. Symptoms of heart valve diseases are palpitations, unexplainable feeling of tiredness or weakness, pain over the chest area and poor physical development in children. A cardiologist can detect the disease of the heart valves using an electrocardiogram or echocardiogram. It may be treated by a cardiothoractic surgeon by replacing the diseased valves in the heart.
