Valve disease affects millions of people each year and causes range from birth-defects to aging or even infections. Patients now have a variety of treatment options available thanks to great advances in surgical techniques and technology in recent years, including minimally invasive procedures.

Advanced imaging is used to detect valve disease, including the latest 3-D TEE or transesophageal echocardiogram. This advanced technology records sound waves from a small wand lowered down the esophagus which helps physicians view three-dimensional images of the functioning heart, in real time, to determine the type and severity of heart valve disease, and plan of treatment. Other diagnostic technologies also are used including echocardiogram, transthoracic echocardiogram, cardiac catheterization, cardiac MRI, chest x-ray and stress test. The Heart Valve Institute team at St. Mary Medical Center works closely with the patient's cardiologists, internists and primary care physicians to diagnose valve disease early.
