        Though it’s hardly a household word, mitral regurgitation affects millions of Americans. Also called a leaky heart, it is one of the most common valve problems. “The mitral valve regulates the blood between the left atrium and the left ventricle and that becomes a problem because as that valve starts to leak more and more it can lead to conditions like atrial fibrillation,” explains Lee Memorial Health System cardiologist Dr. Bhavin Patel. It can also lead to worsening of heart failure and raises stroke risk. Mild to moderate cases may be treated with medication and supervision. But severe mitral regurgitation typically requires surgery. “We used to replace the mitral valve but a lot more techniques are utilized now where we can repair and keep the patient’s own valve in the body without having them to go through an open heart surgery,” Dr. Patel says. Nearly all mitral valve repairs can be performed using a minimally invasive approach through a 2-3-inch incision on the right side of the chest. Recovery from a typical open heart surgery is a month, compared to a less invasive technique which has an average downtime of 2-3 days. As with many heart ailments, symptoms include shortness of breath, palpitations and sometimes swelling of the feet and ankles. “As we all get older one of the things that unfortunately happens is the structural valves fail us,” says Dr. Patel. “It’s important that you diagnose the fact that the valve is leaking and also determine what to do about it.” If caught early there are several fixes, when leaky valves are at the heart of the problem.

            Andrew is a Patient Educator for the Pumping Marvellous Foundation who has suffered from heart failure, has a transplant and tells his story of how he copes with managing his life. The Pumping Marvellous Foundation (PMF) is the UK’s patient led Heart Failure charity. It was founded by a heart failure patient whose experiences whilst rehabilitating have shaped the Foundation’s goals and principles of a patient-centric charity focused on improved patient outcomes. The beneficiaries are all people who suffer from heart failure together with their family and friends. The Pumping Marvellous Foundation’s goal is to deliver HOPE to its beneficiaries through the facilitation of better outcomes by cross-working and advocating the beneficiaries at a local, regional, national and international level; working hand in hand with commissioners and clinicians to deliver better pathways and be the patient voice of progression. Our services include patient driven solutions, created by patients guided but not policed by the Foundation available in printed and online format. The Pumping Marvellous Foundation is funded through donations and fundraising by individuals, support from the NHS and charitable organisations together with corporate sponsorship. All of the potential 1,000,000 heart failure sufferers, their families and carers in the UK qualify for assistance. The Foundation has no bias towards specific sub groups. Heart failure is an umbrella of individual conditions and spans across all socio economic groups therefore our support is varied and tailored to the specific needs and requests. The Foundation is headquartered in East Lancashire and has a network of regional volunteers across the country who deliver the core messages and actively participate in campaigns, publications, distribution of literature and local relationship building. We have a strong online presence which enables the Foundation to reach out and catalyse progression in heart failure care with stronger engagement with clinicians and sufferers and their families. Heart Failure is a progressive condition and has currently no cure. Approximately 75% of heart failure diagnoses are caused by persistent unchecked hypertension or cardiac MI’s (heart attacks). Recently people are managing to survive with better intervention techniques but are coming out the other side with heart failure. It is estimated that in 10 years, from 2012, the cost of managing heart failure in the NHS will increase on top of normal inflation by 50%. Prognosis of heart failure patients is less favourable than most common cancers therefore mortality is significant, acute readmission levels are high and it has been calculated that heart failure admissions equate to over 2% of the total admissions in A&E. The Foundation’s value in these pathways is to promote HOPE to sufferers, promoting self-care and self-education through peer to peer coaching and support. We HOPE to have impact on reducing this ever increasing burden on the Health Economy by getting patients and their families actively managing their condition. The Pumping Marvellous Foundation is an invaluable resource to the health economy. Our services and products improve the ability of heart failure patients to self-care, recognising the early symptoms and self-interventions and steps that can be taken to alleviate common symptoms. An investment in the Pumping Marvellous Foundation is a small investment in comparison to ignoring the problem of heart failure.

                  We do see atrial fibrillation more commonly in diabetics, I think this is in part related to their higher risk of vascular disease," warns Lee Memorial Health System cardiologist, Dr. Brian Taschner. A recent study finds that diabetes have a 40% higher risk of developing atrial fibrillation than those who are not diabetic. Atrial fibrillation is an abnormal heart rhythm that can lead to heart palpitations, congestive heart failure, even strokes. "Diabetics can also develop certain types of neuropathies, problems with the nerves. One of the nerves that helps control the heart rate and heart rhythm is called the vagus nerve. If the diabetes affects that, that can affect the heart regulations," adds Dr. Taschner. There's an even greater concern for those who may be walking around with diabetes and don't even know they have it. "There are patients that are at a much higher risk of developing coronary disease and vascular disease and I think that's part of the association." While there is not enough data to recommend atrial fibrillation screenings for all diabetics, Dr. Taschner says diabetics and borderline diabetics can take action. "I think that we can prevent atrial fibrillation to a degree by trying to control things like hypertension, and coronary artery disease, which we know are risk factors." For those who are diabetic, it's important to keep things under control. Researchers have discovered people with uncontrollable diabetes doubled their risk of atrial fibrillation.
