How Is Heart Valve Disease Treated?
Protecting your valve from further damage.
If you have valve disease, you are at risk for developing endocarditis, a serious condition. People who have mitral valve prolapse without thickening or regurgitation/leaking are not at risk of developing endocarditis.

Tell your doctors and dentist you have valve disease. You may want to carry an identification card with this information. The American Heart Association website (http://www.americanheart.org) has a bacterial endocarditis wallet card that you may download; or call your local American Heart Association office or the national office at 1-800-AHA-USA1
