Abstract

Rheumatic disease is an important cause of inflammatory native heart valve disease. However, with increased understanding of the pathoetiology of valve disease and valve injury, it is evident that inflammation may play a role in many valve disorders. We are only beginning to understand these complex processes. With increasing knowledge that many of these processes are active, there may be opportunity for intervention or even prevention.
