Structural Heart/Valve Clinic
Valve disorders affect the valve's ability to regulate blood flow through the heart. A valve problem can occur when a valve is not opening appropriately (stenosis), or the valve is insufficient (regurgitation).
The Southcoast Valve Clinic includes expert cardiovascular surgeons and cardiologists who deliver the highest quality of heart care to patients with complex valve disorders.
The valve clinic team performs a full evaluation to determine your best treatment plan for valve repair or valve replacement.
Some common valve disorders include:
- Aortic stenosis.
- Aortic regurgitation.
- Mitral stenosis.
- Mitral regurgitation.
- Tricuspid regurgitation.
