A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve.

Uncertain terms: I don't know what the word "ficial" means. Most children who have a heart murmur have a "normal" murmur. That means that there is noise with blood flow, but no actual underlying abnormality causing the noise. This is a normal finding, and typically, with growth, the murmur disappears. Other terms that people use are "innocent" and "functional" to describe such murmurs. ...Read more
Yes: You can have heart valve disease without a murmur. As an example, you can have a bicuspid aortic valve without a murmur, although you would tend to have an ejection click.

Depending on the severity and your age, it may never, ever cause you any symptoms or problems. In the rare cases in which it is very severe, the valve can be repaired and life goes on normally again. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes related : Mitral valve prolapse is a diagnosis which describes how the valve closes. A heart murmur is a physical finding (sign) it is not a diagnosis. A heart murmur is a sound you can hear when blood flows with turbulence (rough flow like rapids in a river). Murmurs can be caused by many things. The location and quality often gives us clues to what caused it. Prolapse may or may not have a murmur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
