Heart Valve Disease
Heart valve disease, also referred to as valvular heart disease, occurs when one or more of your heart valves don't work properly.
When a valve does not open or close all the way, blood doesn’t move through the heart’s chambers the way it should. This can leave you weak and short of breath.
At the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute, we use advanced diagnostic testing and surgical techniques to care for people with heart valve diseases and other serious heart defects.
