What is a enlarged heart Valve?

What is a enlarged heart Valve?

Answer:

there are two valves in the heart, a bicuspid valve (two flaps) and a tricuspid valve (three flaps). A valve serves to prevent the back flow of blood in the heart, keeps it all flowing in one direction. An enlarged or incompetent valve would obviously be unable to do it's work properly. How serious the issue is depends entirely on the extent of enlargement. Enlargement is usually a result of uncontrolled blood pressure issues, but can also be genetic. As she is seeing a doctor about this, suggest that you let the doctor worry about it.
