The global COVID-19 crisis has put an enormous strain on health systems which face the battle of limiting the spread of Coronavirus whilst also providing the treatment and care that will save lives. As a result of this, healthcare systems across the world are having to change the way they work and what they prioritise, impacting patients presenting with many conditions, including heart valve disease.

We are aware that this is a worrying period for patients globally and your concern about your treatment is only exacerbated by concerns about COVID-19 and isolation from your loved ones.

This is an unprecedented global challenge, but things will get better. The awareness, detection and treatment of the disease is progressing rapidly, so we can be optimistic about the future.

It is important that we make clear that when the COVID19 crisis relents, heart valve disease patients around the world will need and should receive treatment.At this time we will be making the case to physicians and healthcare systems that valve disease patients should be treated as a matter of priority. Our focus remains on delivering early intervention that returns patients to a good quality of life in optimal time.
