Stemming from Rheumatic Fever, Rheumatic Aortic Insufficiency is a chronic heart condition. Rheumatic Fever is a disease that develops from an infection with A Streptococcus bacteria in which these bacteria begin as strep throat or scarlet fever and evolve into Rheumatic Fever if they are not treated. Most common in children between the ages of 5 to 15, Rheumatic Aortic Insufficiency is caused by the improper treatment or recurrence of Rheumatic Fever. As the largest blood vessel in the human body, the aorta beings in the left ventricle and extends down to the abdomen. Rheumatic Disease causes the aortic valve from closing all the way which allows blood to come back each time the heart beats creating the aortic insufficiency. Rheumatic Aortic Insufficiency is usually treated with surgery to repair or replace the heart valve. Because of the common occurrence in developing countries, many children die of Rheumatic Aortic Insufficiency each year.
