Valvular heart disease imposes varying degrees of stress on the myocardium, which, untreated, leads to eventual ventricular dysfunction. The pathophysiologic mechanisms by which these lesions act depend not only on the affected valve, but also the degree to which they causes stenosis, regurgitation, or both. The goal of patient treatment ...
