Conditions Treated:

Aortic Stenosis occurs when the heart's aortic valve narrows. This obstructs blood flow into the aorta, and into the rest of the body, causing the heart to work harder. Eventually the heart muscle weakens and symptoms develop. Left untreated aortic stenosis can lead to serious heart problems.

    Symptoms: Chest discomfort (pain may get worse with activity), cough (possibly bloody), breathing problems when exercising, becoming easily tired, feeling the heart beat, fainting, weakness, or dizziness with activity. 
    Tests You will need: See Cardiac Catheterization, CT Scan, Echocardiogram (TTE and TEE), Carotid Ultrasound, Laboratory tests, Physical Exam, Frailty Testing, Pulmonary Functional Testing, Arterial Blood Gases, Breathing Test.

Mitral Valve Regurgitation occurs when the heart's mitral valve does not close tightly, allowing blood to flow backward in the heart, and then preventing it from moving efficiently through the heart and the rest of the body. If left untreated, this condition can lead to congestive heart failure, irregular heartbeat, and endocarditis (infection of inner lining of the heart).

    Symptoms: often times there are no symptoms and they gradually occur. They may include cough, fatigue, exhaustion, rapid breathing, sensation of feeling the heart beat, shortness of breath that increases with activity and when lying down, urination. 
    Tests you will need: Aww Cardiac Catheterization, Echocardiogram, Carotid Ultrasound, Laboratory Tests, Physical Exam, Frailty Testing, Pulmonary Functional Testing.
