Valvular heart disease
© Springer-Verlag London 2014. Valvular heart disease is a growing public health concern - as our population ages, the prevalence of valvular heart disease will only rise. The expansive topic encompasses numerous disease entities, complex hemodynamics, invasive and noninvasive testing, and involved management decisions. In addition, perhaps more so than any other topic in cardiology, the diagnosis and management of valvular heart disease is dependent on the history and physical examination. Such complexity makes valvular heart disease a prime topic for cardiology board examinations.
