Valve Disease and Treatments

with A. Marc Gillinov, MD and Christine Jellis, MD, PhD

Description:

Heart valve disease occurs when one or more of the heart valves do not work correctly and cause the heart to pump harder to circulate the right amount of blood through the body. Left untreated, heart valve disease can reduce a person’s quality of life and become life-threatening. Take this opportunity to learn more about treatment options for valve disease and have your questions answered by a cardiologist and cardiothoracic surgeon from Cleveland Clinic’s Miller Family Heart & Vascular Institute.
