insuficiencia de valva/insuficiencia valvular

Hace referencia a una insuficiencia de valva. Las válvulas cardíacas tienen 2 o 3 "valvas". Normalmente se usaría el término "insuficiencia valvular"; en este caso hablan de regurgitación pulmonar (PR) debida a la insuficiencia de la valva (según el texto original). Si bien el término estrictamente correcto sería "insuficiencia de valva", en términos médicos lo usual es decir "insuficiencia valvular".
