Aortic Valve Disease and Getting Disability

Your heart valves have two primary functions. When they open, they control the direction in which your blood is flowing. When your heart valves close, they permit pressure differentials to exist in a closed system.

The aorta is the main artery that goes out of your heart. As blood goes out of your heart, it travels from you left ventricle (lower chamber) through your aortic valve into your aorta.

What is Aortic Valve Disease?

Aortic valve disease is a disorder that is characterized by your aortic valve not working the way it should. There are two main kinds of aortic valve disease. They are aortic valve stenosis and aortic valve regurgitation.

Aortic valve stenosis is when your aortic valve narrows and does not open completely the way that it should. When this takes place, your blood flow is inhibited from your heart into your aorta and the rest of your body.

Aortic valve regurgitation is marked by your aortic valve failing to close like it should. As a result of this, blood flows backward into your left ventricle.

Aortic valve disease can be a congenital disorder. This means that it is something that you were born with.
