Internal Medicine - Infectious Disease
In brief: Complicated
This depends on the valve involved, the cause of the diseased valve and the degree to which it affects function.
Damaged valves also creates the risk of secondary valve infection (infective endocarditis), which can be life-threatening, need long courses of antibiotics or require valve replacement. Restrictions depend on disease severity.
