I was just wondering what are the implications of the different treatment of the valves and what are the views of doctors in this aspect. In case of a narrow annulus, would they destroy the annulus while they are treating it? A vascular surgeon told me that in his opinion this can cause the remodeling of the vein. In case of a leaflets fusion, would they just open up the leaflets or would they destroy them? So, after the dilation, would the leaflets work properly just as do in a healthy person or would they be destroyed? I know that they are saying that 15% of the people have no valves, but is there no consequnce of getting rid of the valves?
