Valvular Heart Disease
The heart has 4 types of valve mitral valve and pulmonary valve. Mitral flow between atria & ventricle i.e. upper & lower chamber of heart while pulmonary valve controls flow of blood from the heart to lungs & aortic valve control blood flow between heart & aorta.
The damage or defect in any valve leads to disease commonly known a valve heart disease.
Valves prevents back flow of blood from one chamber to other it also responsible for the proper flow of blood in the proper direction with the proper force.
Ventricular heart disease occurs due to aging. It may be congenital means present since birth. In this disease, valves become so hard & narrow that can cause incomplete opening and closure of the valve.
Due to incomplete closure of valve blood leak back into the chamber which previously exited & stenosed valve responsible for the back force of blood in the adjucent chamber.
This leads to muscle enlargement & thinking which cause loss of elasticity & efficiency of heart muscles.in addition in some cases, blood pooling in the chambers of heart has a greater tendency to clot, increasing the risk of stroke or pulmonary embolism.
Initially, It is asymptomatic but as days go on it become server & leads to congestive heart failure.
