Abstract

With the aging population and increasing life expectancy around the world, the prevalence of valvular heart disease has continued to rise over the last few decades and is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. Managing such patients start with being aware of the clinical features and implications of valvular heart disease, followed by appropriate utilizations of the diagnostic and prognostic value of cardiac imaging. Advances in multimodality imaging coupled with surgical and percutaneous therapies have added dimensions to how we optimally manage elderly patients with valvular heart disease in a multidisciplinary setting. This chapter will focus on discussing the main clinical and diagnostic imaging perspectives of the four most commonly encountered valvular lesions in the elderly: aortic stenosis, aortic regurgitation, mitral regurgitation, and tricuspid regurgitation. Surgical and transcatheter management for valvular heart disease will be addressed in subsequent chapters.
