Jan 22, 2018 · Video Q&A about Congenital Heart Disease in Heart & Blood Health

I have a 40 year old daughter born with AVSD and she did great for 39 years after repair at 9 mos. Then at 39 she develop endocarditis and ended up with a mechanical valve after nearly dying. Now, fear and stress are at very high level. Any recommendations or thoughts?

My daughter will be 38 years old this year. Her AVSD was repaired at Mayo in 1978, when she was just 9 months old. She has done great, but of course, she has a Mitral Valve that has moderate problem, but causes her no problems. She has been told that there’s no rush to repair or replace this valve because she is doing so well. She takes good care of herself and sees her cardiologist annually. What should we look for if she starts to need replacement?
