Decoding the hearts structure and function is indeed very interest. Heart valve disease refers to any of several conditions that prevent one or more of the valves in the heart from functioning adequately to assure proper circulation.On each side of the heart, the atrium and ventricle are separated by a valve.

It is then pumped through the aortic valve into the main artery (the aorta) and around the body.The essential function of a heart valve is to maintain the flow of blood in the right direction.
