There are four chambers in your heart and the valves ensure that the blood moves through them in one direction. The two vast blood vessels that leave the heart likewise have valves to ensure that the blood does not do a reversal into the heart once it has been pumped out. A diseased or harmed valve can influence the stream of blood in two ways: On the off chance that the valve does not open completely, it will block or confine the stream of blood. This is called valve stenosis or narrowing. This can put additional strain on your heart, making it pump harder to constrain the blood past the narrowing. On the off chance that the valve does not close legitimately, it will permit blood to spill in reverse. This is called valve incompetence or regurgitation or a broken valve. This can put additional strain on your heart and may imply that your heart needs to do additional work to pump the required volume of blood.

One not need any treatment at all but doctor may ask to come back in a year's time for review, or if the symptoms get worse. Most valve problems can be treated using medicines or by valve heart surgery. Treatment will depend on the cause of problem and the effect that it is having on the patient’s heart.
