Carolinas HealthCare System’s Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute has a comprehensive heart valve program staffed by nationally recognized cardiac experts who provide you with a full range of state-of-the-art treatments:
Heart valve disease may affect any of the four valves in the heart: aortic, mitral, pulmonary or tricuspid. These valves open and close to keep blood flowing through the heart's four chambers. Defects in the valves may be present at birth (congenital), or they may result from diseases such as rheumatic fever, atrial infection, high blood pressure or a heart attack.
Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute offers you the latest in advanced diagnostic services to help detect heart valve defects, including 3D transesophageal echocardiography, cardiac CT angiography and cardiac MRI.
Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute is the only center in the region nationally recognized for expertise in congenital pulmonary valve surgery. The heart valve team performs minimally invasive pulmonary valve replacement.
Sanger focuses on the full spectrum of your care, including gathering critical patient records before you arrive for your first appointment. Once you enter our program, a navigator helps you make appointments, manage the collection of records, coordinate post-operation care and discharge you back to your referring physician. This partnership with you, your doctor and support staff helps you get the best care possible.
