In this context, before your operation you would be categorized as having valvular heart disease. That being said, once the valve is replaced, either with a metallic or poor seen valve, you would not be considered as having a normal valve. You would have a replaced valve. You will never again have a normal valve. Even with the new surgeries (TAVR) the valve is still abnormal.
