HEART DOCTORS NEAR ME Angina Angina occurs when the heart must do extra work but does not receive enough oxygen for its needs because a coronary artery is narrowed due to arteriosclerosis. angina may occur not only in the case of physical exertion but also during an episode of mental stress or the digestion of a large meal. Angina pain generally disappears quickly once the activity has stopped or with nitroglycerin. Someone has stable angina when the angina pain occurs and can be reproduced during specific activities and remains of short duration. Unstable angina , which is also called acute coronary syndrome, refers to prolonged pain that generally occurs when patients are at rest and that can be a sign of myocardial infarction (heart attack). These symptoms are described in the Acute Coronary Syndrome section

THE BEST HEART CLINICS NEAR ME Aortic Valve Disease Heart valve diseases are grouped according to the diseased valve, the type of problem (stenosis or regurgitation) and the severity of the problem. The most common cardiac valve diseases are found in the aortic and mitral valve. The aortic valve, which is located between the left ventricle and the aorta, may become stenotic or may regurgitate (fail). When the aortic valve is stenotic (aortic stenosis), the valve opening is smaller than normal and the heart has to do extra work to pump blood through this opening. When the aortic valve regurgitates blood or closes improperly (valve regurgitation or failure), the valve does not seal when closed; blood then backs up against normal flow and leaks into the left ventricle. Causes and/or risk factors Many pathologies may cause both aortic stenosis and aortic regurgitation to varying degrees: Bicuspid aortic valve disease: a congenital (birth) defect in which the aortic valve has two flaps instead of three Rheumatic valve disease: secondary to rheumatic fever, which is generally contracted in childhood and can lead to valve problems 20 to 40 years later Endocarditis Senile, or degenerative, calcium deposition, most often in hypertensive patients
