The Heart Valve Society of America (HVSA) was been formed to:
- Advance development of new knowledge of valvular heart diseases through promotion, organization and support of research (basic, pre-clinical, clinical, and epidemiological).
- Facilitate transfer of research results to clinical practice.
- Promote dissemination of knowledge about valvular heart diseases to medical, scientific, and general audiences.
Since its founding, HVSA membership has grown to include medical professionals in the field of heart valve disease from the US and abroad.
