Sticky Ventricles? in heart ventricle? Sorry I don't understand your question. What test have you done?

Did you mean heart valve problems? A heart valve problem can be acquired or inherited. Some causes of acquired heart valve problems include:

  • Rheumatic fever, an inflammatory illness that may follow an untreated strep throat infection
  • Endocarditis, inflammation and infection of the heart valves
  • Idiopathic calcific aortic stenosis, a degenerative condition seen primarily in the elderly, in which the aortic valve cusps become thickened, fused and infiltrated with calcium
  • Syphilis
  • Connective tissue disorders, such as Marfan's syndrome
