Valvular regurgitaction: 6 key facts 馃攽. Should I have heart surgery?

Here you will find some important concepts about these very common conditions.

11/4/20232 min read

馃挃Heart valve pathologies are evaluated and monitored in cardiology consultations based on the patient's clinical presentation馃┖ (i.e., signs and symptoms), data from electrocardiograms, and primarily with echocardiograms or cardiac ultrasound馃攭. It's common in our practice to receive second opinion consultations to assess indications for surgery. We specialize in valve pathology with extensive experience in preoperative and postoperative cardiovascular recovery.

馃挕 Here are six essential facts you should know as a patient about this topic:

1) The cardiologist's role is to monitor the heart's condition and its impact to evaluate the best timing for correction or intervention, whether to operate on the heart or not.
2) Valve diseases are mechanical, so there's no medication that can correct them.
3) Not all valve regurgitations need to be corrected immediately.
4) Most valve regurgitations progress very slowly over the years.
5) Valve surgeries have a complication rate that depends not only on the disease itself but also on the hospital where the procedure is performed. They are complex interventions requiring highly trained teams.
6) The benefit of surgery must outweigh the risk of the intervention. Understanding the numbers is essential.
