Health Canada has approved three new heart and stroke drugs to treat the condition, the latest indication that the country is moving away from the old-fashioned heart valve.
But for some patients, a new valve can be just as good.

She said it is a much safer and more effective solution than the traditional heart valve because it uses a less invasive approach that does not require surgery.
The new valve is also designed to reduce the risk of infections, but the new version will be tested on animals before going to humans, Ambrose said.

article The heart valve is an instrument that connects blood to the heart via a series of tubes, which are connected by the valve itself.
A valve can sometimes be clogged, and the valve may fail or block blood flow, leading to blood clots or a heart block.
It can also cause serious problems, including stroke and heart attacks.
The valve is used for about 1.3 million heart attacks and strokes in Canada each year.
The Canadian Heart Foundation, which represents the interests of Canadians in heart care, says a valve that can be repaired or replaced is better than no valve at all.
Zilias Heart Products is based in Toronto and Canada’s largest health-care company.
It offers heart valves and other products to health care professionals, dentists, physicians and nurses.
Zilias product line has been available in Canada since 1993.
Zimias product range is now available to all provinces and territories and includes products from a-zilis, zilia, s-zils, d-zili, a-g-s and s-gis.
The company also has an annual sales of about $50 million, according to a company statement.
Zillies heart product,a,d,l,s,h-h health,health source The Hill article Zillias Health Products, an Ottawa-based manufacturer of heart valves, products and supplies, is moving to the U.S. in order to expand its reach, said company spokeswoman Christine Kiel.
The United States has been one of the top markets for Zillys heart valve since its founding, said Kiel, and is a great place to be because it has a lower average cost for products.
The company is looking to add about 200 jobs, she said.
Health Minister Rna Ambrose said Canada is moving in a different direction, and Zilliest product, which she described as a more traditional heart-valve, is a product of the U:t-s:a-s brand, which focuses on heart-health products and devices.
The Minister said it has also been a good business for Zilis.
“It’s been a great market for us,” Ambrose said Thursday.
“There’s a number of other companies who are making products that do exactly what the Zilist products do and that are making money from the sale of those products.”
Kiel said the company is not sure when it will move to the United States.
“I’m not really sure how soon we can get it to market, but we are certainly hoping that it will happen sooner rather than later,” she said, adding that she does not think Zillis product line is the only one.
It’s a very big market, with many different manufacturers, and we have to figure out how to get there, said Dr. William G. Zylis, vice-president of health products for Zellys.
We have a number more people in the market that are interested in our product, he said.
It is a very competitive market, he added.
In a statement, Dr. Stephen E. Daley, president of the Canadian Heart Association, said he is glad to see that Health Canada is making decisions based on safety and efficacy, rather than price.
“We applaud Health Canada for its determination to support this important initiative,” he said in a statement.
“While it may not be the first time that Canadian health-providers have had to move their products overseas, this move shows the importance of continuing to invest in the health-system of Canada.”
