Pulmonary valve disease is condition refers to any disorder of your heart's pulmonary valve, which is responsible for keeping blood from your heart flowing properly to your lungs. This is the valve separating the right ventricle (one of the chambers in the heart) and the pulmonary artery. The pulmonary artery carries oxygen-poor blood to the lungs.
In Norway the statistical analysis of pulmonary valve disease was resulted as tha in 90 patients, there were three new valve replacements, one early cardiac death, and four late noncardiac deaths. Echocardiographic assessment of the study group showed pulmonary Doppler velocities (m/s) before, after operation, and at five-year follow-up of 2.8±1.1, 1.6±0.4, and 2.3±0.7, respectively.
