In brief: Heart valve problems

The heart also has four valves: the tricuspid, pulmonary, mitral, and aortic valves.
These valves open and close, acting like doors in the heart, making sure that blood flows correctly from the atria into the ventricles, and then from the ventricles to the rest of the body. Valves can become too leaky, allowing blood to flow backwards, or too narrowed, preventing blood from leaving a chamber.
