Heart Valve Degeneration usually occurs on people aged over 40 years old because of degenerative tissue flexibility that could eventually lead to heart valve deformity and heart valve regurgitation. Thus, it decreases the heart’s effectiveness, and leads to the following symptoms:

  • Gets easily tired 
  • Dizziness 
  • Loss of consciousness 
  • Chest Pain 
  • Palpitation 
  • Swelling of the foot and ankle (Edema) 

If you have the mentioned symptoms above, you should see the doctor to check and diagnose your heart. If it is heart valve regurgitation because of degeneration, the doctor might recommend the patient to receive the heart valve repair surgery to restore the heart’s normal function and increase the rate of survival. A patient who has received a heart valve repair surgery will have a better quality of life and reduced risk of blood clot in the heart; as well as the risk of internal bleeding.
