Structural Heart Disease

Structural heart disease refers to a variety of congenital or acquired abnormalities in the structure of the heart. These abnormalities can affect the heart valves, chambers, walls, or major blood vessels. Structural heart disease can develop due to various factors such as genetic predisposition, aging, infection, inflammation, or injury.

Treatment may involve medications, lifestyle modifications, surgical procedures, or minimally invasive interventions such as transcatheter valve repair or replacement. Early detection and appropriate management are crucial for improving outcomes and reducing complications associated with structural heart disease.
