Blood is a type of fluid present in the body to deliver necessary substances such as nutrients and oxygen to the cells. The role of our heart is closely related to the functioning of blood only. It is an organ which pumps blood through the blood vessel of the circulatory system.  It is located between the lungs in the middle of the chest. The blood flow is regulated with the help of heart valves. A heart valve allows the blood to flow in one direction through the heart. In case of any problems arising in heart or the related structures, you should get yourself checked at the best heart hospital in India.

Heart valve are four in number. Two of them are atrioventricular valves – mitral valve and tricuspid valve whereas two of them are semilunar vlaves – aortic valve and pulmonary valve. In some medical condition, one or more heart valve doesn’t open or close properly. This will cause disruption in the blood flow through the heart to the body. This is the time to get treated under the care of best heart specialist hospital. The treatment which you will receive depends on the heart valve which is affected and the severity of the disease. If the valve is completely damaged, then you can go for heart valve replacement.

Heart valve replacement:

There are different surgical procedures used to replace our heart valves including open-heart surgery or minimally invasive heart surgery. This surgery is done if your condition is getting worse and you are experiencing signs and symptoms of valve dysfunction.

Minimally invasive catheter procedure is the most preferred procedure to replace certain heart valves. After the procedure gets over, you will spend a day or two in ICU. Your condition will be monitored and follow up instructions will be given during the recovery process.

Heart bypass surgery:

The repair of damaged arteries is done by using blood vessels from another area of the body. The type of bypass surgery which is to be imparted depends on the number of arteries which are blocked. In a single bypass, one artery is blocked, in a double bypass two arteries are blocked and so on.
