Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. It is responsible for 45% of deaths in the western world and nearly 25% in developing countries. Prevention strategies, such as educational campaigns aimed at the general public, have the potential of greatly reducing the incidence of cardiovascular disease at every stage. But in order for such campaigns to be effective, it is necessary to both understand and reduce the many risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Learning about effective forms of heart disease management is important, and regular checkups with diagnostic testing are often recommended.
Heart valve disease occurs if even one valve stops working properly. These four valves have flaps that open and close with each heartbeat, making sure blood flows in the proper direction through the four chambers. Infections, age, and birth defects, may cause one or more valves to not open fully or let blood leak back into the heart chambers, making the heart work harder.
