Overview

Heart valve surgery is performed to replace or repair heart valves that aren’t functioning correctly. Due to the abnormal functioning of heart valves, there can be a blood flow blockage in the body, which may prove fatal to the patient. In heart valve surgery, the surgeon replaces or repairs the affected heart valves. There are many surgical procedures that may be used for this particular purpose, including minimally invasive heart surgery or open heart surgery.

The treatment depends on several factors that include the patient’s health, age, and the condition of the heart valve that is affected and the severity of condition.

What is Heart Valve Replacement Surgery

For the heart to function correctly; blood must flow in only one direction and this process is taken care of by the heart valves. Healthy valves close and open in a precise way as the heart pumps blood. Each valve has the set of flaps called leaflets that open to allow the blood to pass from the heart chambers into the arteries. Then they close pack to stop the blood from flowing back into the chambers. Heart surgery is performed to fix leaflets that do not open as wide as they should, hampering the amount of blood flowing through valve into the artery. Heart surgery is also done to fix leaflets which don’t close tightly. This means blood may leak backward into the chambers, rather than only moving forward into the artery. Replacement valves are taken from animals, made from human tissue, or man-made substances.

What are the Symptoms or Indications of Heart Valve Replacement Surgery?
