This week is Heart Valve Disease Awareness Week (Sept 11-17).

Many people living with CHD have defects that include the valves in their heart. The 4 valves of the heart are:

Tricuspid valve: between the right atrium and the right ventricle.

Pulmonary valve: between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery.

Mitral valve: between the left atrium and the left ventricle.

Aortic valve: between the aorta and left ventricle.
