Adult Congenital Heart Disease: Pulmonary Valve Regurgitation
Pulmonary valve regurgitation is a common congenital heart disease condition that occurs in patients with primary congenital pulmonary valve disease that was treated either surgically or balloon treated.
It can also occur in more complex cases, such as Tetralogy of Fallot.
Dr. Heidi Connolly, in the following video discusses pulmonary valve regurgitation. Dr. Connolly describes the normal pulmonary function in a normal heart, then explains what the right side of the heart looks like when pulmonary valve regurgitation is present, and sharing common symptoms.
She discusses how pulmonary valve regurgitation is treated, generally resulting in surgical or catheter-based intervention.
