Valvular heart disease affects a large number of people who require diagnostic procedures and long-term management. Valve problems can be present at birth or caused by infections, heart attacks, or heart disease and damage. Some valve problems are minor and do not need treatment. Others might require medical management of symptoms or therapy to repair or replace the diseased valve. Many patients have no symptoms, but for others, if not treated, advanced heart valve disease can cause heart failure, stroke, blood clots, or death due to sudden cardiac arrest.
