Heart Valve Surgery

R. N. KalraHeart Valve Surgery is one of the most critical surgeries performed today. At Kalra Hospital, we have experienced doctors performing heart valve repair surgery in Delhi.

It is the valves of the heart which allow one-directional flow of blood to make sure that the blood which has entered the heart doesn’t leave the organ or the blood which has left the organ does not flow back to it. There are four main valves in the heart:

  • The AV or artioventricular valves between the right atrium and right ventricle
  • The mitral valves between the left atrium and left ventricle of the heart and
  • The pulmonary valve blocking the back flow of deoxygenated blood into the heart

Valvular heart disease is a general term for any abnormal behavior in any of these four valves. Usually, there are two forms of dysfunction in the heart valve,

  • Regurgitation or flow of blood in the wrong direction due to clinical complications like aortic insufficiency, mitral insufficiency, pulmonary insufficiency and tricuspid insufficiency
  • Stenosis or the narrowing of the valve, because of which the valves are thickened.

Stenosis may also be a result of rheumatic fever or pregnancy. Possible symptoms may include inflammation of the heart muscle, difficulty in breathing etc. Bacterial invasion may also be a cause for complications in the heart valve.

Valvular complications are mostly congenital, though other reasons aren’t rare. There might be hundreds of possible clinical conditions behind malfunctioning of heart valves, thus it is very important to make the correct diagnosis before treating the disease. Complications arising from defective heart valves are treated by replacing them with artificial heart valves or by repairing the damages. Here at Kalra Hospital, we have the provisions for best heart valve surgery. With the most efficient group of surgeons and world-class resources, we provide the latest equipments to monitor the condition of the patient before, during, and after the surgery. We have put together the best research team to detect any rare medical condition and treat the patient with utmost care and compassion. By the advanced technology of ECG or echocardiography, we study the problem followed by required treatment. We have performed hundreds of aortic valve replacement and mitral valve replacement procedures depending on the patient’s complications. In many cases, instead of replacement, repair does the job. We prefer not to go into unnecessarily complicated treatments and risk the patient’s life. We have performed umpteen heart valve surgeries in Delhi successfully. Our duty does not end with surgery done; we also ensure that no post-surgical trauma or complications are aroused after the heart valve replacement surgery by maintaining regular follow –ups and checkups.
