June 6th, 2014. Boynton Beach, FL. South Palm Cardiovascular Associates has published a new article discussing heart murmurs and their relationship to valvular heart disease. According to the Boynton Beach-based center, heart murmurs are common and most are not a concern. The task of the Boynton Beach vascular specialist is to detect those that require care and treatment.
The directors of South Palm Cardiovascular Associates say, “Except in cases where the murmurs are caused by an underlying condition such as high blood pressure that is detected early and treated, most heart murmurs cannot be prevented. The best advice that we as heart care specialists in Boynton Beach can recommend is to have regular physical examinations to detect any abnormal heart sounds early, before they cause problems.” They want patients to understand that there are many potential causes for heart murmurs, and that not all of them require treatment. For those cases that are related to heart valve disease, there are many treatment options available to alleviate the problems and keep them from becoming worse.
South Palm Cardiovascular Associates feels that if the public becomes more aware of the facts about heart murmurs, they will be more likely to get regular checkups with their Delray Beach cardiologist – for themselves, and for their children.
