Structural Heart

What Are Structural Heart Conditions?

Structural heart disease refers to conditions that occur as a result of abnormalities of:

  • Heart valves
  • Pumping function of the heart
  • Internal structures of chambers of the heart

These conditions are complex and require expertise and coordinated care to manage them appropriately. Coordinated treatment is critical because many patients with these conditions progress to advanced stages of heart failure if not managed appropriately

What are typical symptoms of structural heart disease?

  • Heart murmurs 
  • Migraines 
  • Shortness of breath/ fatigue 
  • Transient ischemic attack/Strokes 
  • Chest Pain/ heart palpitations
  • High blood pressure

These symptoms may indicate: 

  • Moderate or severe valvular heart disease
  • Reduced cardiac ejection fraction
  • Coronary artery disease 
  • Septal wall defects
