Is heart valve disease a disability?

Pathology

In brief: Depends

Heart valve abnormalities range from the trivial to the severely disabling.
If the valve problem prevents the heart from putting out as much blood as you need to do the things you want to do, you'll know it, and hopefully have 21st century treatment available for you. Simply having an abnormal valve doesn't entitle anybody to any disability money. I wish you good luck and good health.
