Multi- valvular heart disease

Hello @bkvfuller,

As someone with a lifetime history of valve disease (since age 11), I would concur about the importance of getting a second opinion. I would also recommend that you seek this second opinion from a well-respected heart center. Perhaps an institution like Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, or a university medical school in your vicinity.

I have also had a heart cath. They often do it through the wrist now. Much easier than through the groin and there are often fewer complications afterward. You might ask what route your doctor is planning on taking.

Can you get a second opinion at a heart center like these mentioned?
