Aortic valve surgery is also called aortic valve replacement surgery. It is a kind of surgical procedure. Performed in cases of aortic regurgitation (when the valve does not close properly and there is a backflow of blood) or aortic stenosis (when it does not open properly for the outflow of blood). It is basically this replacement surgery to remove the aortic valve. According to the doctor, aortic valve surgery is required if the patient has the following symptoms. feeling of pain in the chest, feeling of tightness around the chest, shortness of breath or difficulty in breathing, feeling tired with increased activity, fainting or dizziness, abnormal heart sounds, palpitations, leg and ankle swelling.
