Structural Heart Disease

Structural heart disease includes many conditions or diseases that affect the heart muscle itself, the architecture of the heart and the valves that control the flow of blood in and out of the organ. Structural heart disorders can be present at birth or they can develop later in life.

Conditions causing structural heart disease include:
 

  • Coronary artery disease causing blockages of the heart's arteries
  • Insufficiency or stenosis of the valves
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Congenital heart defects
     

Treatment options include:
 

  • Angioplasty and stent placement
  • Surgical repair and replacement of the mitral valve
  • Heart surgery
  • Revascularization
