Blood flow inside the chambers of the heart is managed by one-way valves that stop blood from travelling the wrong way. This is vital for healthy blood flow around the body.
If the heart valves become diseased (narrowed or leaky), extra strain is put on the heart. This can lead to heart failure in the future.
Heart valve disease can present with various symptoms such as shortness of breath, tiredness, swollen ankles or fainting.
You can book an appointment for Dr Modi to investigate such symptoms and if valve disease is found, he can offer regular review as well as medications. If valve disease patients need treatment with a procedure to treat the valves, Dr Modi can refer on to an appropriate cardiothoracic surgeon.
