What is Heart Valve Replacement?

Heart Valve Replacement refers to the procedure of replacing heart valves that have narrowed and hinders the blood flow in & out of the heart with the artificial valves.

Types of Heart Valve Replacement

Open-heart valve replacement surgery

heart valve replacement

It is a surgical procedure wherein the surgery is performed on the internal structures of the heart. During the surgery, the patient is placed on a heart-lung machine that allows blood to flow through the heart while the surgery is being performed.

Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery

Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery or keyhole surgery is performed by making small incisions of about 3 to 4 inches in the heart muscle, through specialized surgical instruments. Minimally invasive heart surgery will repair Mitral valve, Aortic valve and Tricuspid valve.

Valvuloplasty

It is a technique wherein the stiff aortic valves are treated with the help of a balloon catheter. The balloon is positioned in the aortic valve and subsequently inflated to expand the size of the valve, leading to improved blood flow.

Types of Valves Used in Replacement

Mechanical Valves

A mechanical valve or prosthetic refer to the artificial substitute of the native heart valve. Like your native heart valve, the mechanical valve too has a ring to support the leaflets.

Tissue Valves

It is a native valve taken from an animal. Before placing it into the human body, the tissue valve is chemically treated and replaced with the diseased valve.

Homografts or Allografts

When a valve is obtained from the body of a donor, it is known as homograft or allograft. This type of valve is beneficial for children's and pregnant women as it does not require long-term anticoagulation therapy.

Benefits of Heart Valve Surgery

Damaged heart valves cause a multitude of symptoms such as breathing difficulties, chest pain, edema and heart palpitations. Post Heart Valve surgery, patients get rid of all these problems.
