Heart Valve Disorders And Treatment
By Adam Pick on March 24, 2008
I just received a question that reads, “Can you tell me all the different heart valve disorders, treatment and surgical procedures to fix heart valve disease?”
I have to admit, that is a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE question. As you probably know, there are many different forms of heart valve disorders and their are many different types of valvular treatment.
That said, to answer this question about heart valve disorders, treatment and operations would take the rest of the week (and it’s Monday morning).
However, I have created the Heart Valve Learning Center to help you get started answering this question about heart valve disorders, treatment.
Keep on tickin!

My mother who is 86 now had a pig valve replacement 13 years ago. Today she found out that the valve is closing is there anything they can do to fix the problem? The doctor did not want to do another replacement at her age and health. He more or less told her that she could live a short time of 10 years. I know that you can’t give me a answer that will help me but is there something new that they can do to the valve to open it up again. Please answer a very concerned daughter Thank you
