Explaining Heart Valves

Dr. Bernardo Lopez-Sanabria, Interventional Cardiologist at Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, explains the valves separate different chambers in the heart. He also says there are four valves in the heart, the left-sided chamber valves, which are the mitral and the aortic valve and the right-sided chamber valves, which are the tricuspid and the pulmonic valves. According to him, the most common diseases are stenosis of the valve and insufficiency of the valve.
