Aortic Valve Replacement

Thanks for the info. Anywhere else I can find more information on aortic valve replacement?

Heart and Vein Center

Veins carry blood from the body back to the heart, and have one-way valves that prevent blood from flowing backward. If the valves become weakened, some blood can remain in the vein, causing the vein to enlarge and bulge. Larger congested veins found mostly in the legs are commonly called varicose veins.

Heart disease or cardiovascular diseases is the class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels (arteries and veins).Thank you so much for the wealth of information.
