Center for Structural Heart Disease
The mitral and aortic valves are the most commonly affected by structural heart disease. In fact, it's estimated that approximately 2.5 million people in the United States have symptoms of aortic stenosis, a life-threatening condition that prevents the aortic valve from fully opening, and restricts blood flow through the valve.
Pulse Heart Institute's Center for Structural Heart Disease has gathered a multidisciplinary team of heart disease experts who work in close partnership to diagnose and treat diseases related to the valves of the heart.
