Healthy Geezer: Three from e-mailbag

Q. What happens when you have a heart valve that leaks?

Valves can malfunction and strain the heart. If a valve doesn't close properly, blood will flow backward. This is called regurgitation.

If valve flaps don't open correctly, they prevent blood from flowing through them. This is called stenosis.

Advanced valve disease can cause blood clots, stroke or sudden death from cardiac arrest.
