心脏瓣膜病

A heart valve problem can be potentially life-threatening with no symptoms or it can often be insignificant with uncomfortable symptoms. 诊断的关键, 治疗, and prevent valve disease in its early stage is to tell your healthcare provider about irregular symptoms you have that you’re concerned about.

Heart valve disorders are developed by a leakage of blood in the valve or narrowing of the valve opening that affects the functioning of a heart valve i.e. to ensure the continuous flow of blood in a forward direction.

心脏瓣膜病的病因:

There are several certain causes for the acquired heart valve disease; whereas, congenital heart valve disease occurs before birth when the heart is developing. The causes may include, but not limited to:

  • Heart conditions and other cardiovascular disorders, 比如心脏病发作, 心肌病, 主动脉瘤, 冠状动脉疾病
  • 与年龄相关的变化
  • 风湿热或感染
  • Infective endocarditis, an inflammation of the heart tissue

These factors not only influence the functioning and flexibility of the heart valves but also affect their structure.
