Is leaky valve dangerous?
The leakage may be mild, moderate, or severe, so the answer depending on the degree of the leakage.
- Mild or slightly leakage does not need any manipulation you can live with it for years without any problems.
- Moderate leakage also you can live with it but it needs follow up by echocardiography every year.
- Severe leakage you feel tired, off breath, swelling in your legs and tummy due to impair the forward flow of blood and hence heart failure here you need intensive medical treatment by water bills while we prepare for surgical correction (repair or replacement).
