Symptoms Of Valve Heart Disease

Some of the symptoms of valve heart disease are chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, swelling of the ankles, feet or abdomen, weakness or dizziness and quick weight gain. Dr. Ramon Quesada, Structural Heart and Complex PCI Programs at Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, says most of the time those symptoms occur when the disease is advanced, so the most challenging thing is to detect it in early stages to set a treatment that will improve patients' outcome.
