The valve's function is to push the blood out of the chambers of the heart. When the movement is restricted it is an indication of the valve dysfunction.
Stenosis is a condition where the blood vessels get narrowed restricting the flow of blood to the heart. Sometimes it could be the leaky valves. Regurgitation is yet another phenomenon where one of the valves is open making the blood flow backward.
The symptoms of heart disease are:
The valvular heart has one or more valves that are damaged and may need repair. Valve replacement surgery is the only option.
Mechanical and Biologic valves: They are used to replace damaged valves. A mechanical valve is made from carbon and polyester materials that the body readily accepts. It lasts as long as 10-20 years. The only dis advantage is that it clots the blood vessels. As a result, one has to use blood thinners for the rest of his life.
Biologic Valves: They use bioprosthetic valves made from animal or human tissue
This doesn’t cause blood clots. But these biologic valves need replacements once in a while. They are recommended based on your age, health, the severity of the valvular diseases and your body’s ability to take anti-coagulant medications.
