What Is A Valvular Disease?
Valvular disease is referred to a group of medical conditions that specifically affect our valves. The human heart has four valves, Mitral Valve, Pulmonary valve, Aortic valve, and tricuspid valve, all of which function to ensure the normal supply of blood to various organs of our body. The valves are susceptible and extremely important for the wellbeing of our heart. Valvular diseases can be congenital, hereditary, or acquired due to unhealthy lifestyle practices. If left untreated, these can lead to life-threatening consequences. While age is a crucial risk factor, plaque formation might also be responsible for it.
