About Aortic Valve Replacement

An aortic valve replacement is a type of open heart surgery used to treat problems with the heart's aortic valve. It involves removing a faulty or damaged valve and replacing it with a new one made from synthetic materials or animal tissue.


An aortic valve replacement is performed under general anaesthetic.

  • Large incision is made on the patient’s chest to access the heart.
  • Patient’s heart is temporarily stopped and a heart-lung (bypass) machine is used to take over the job of the heart during operation.
  • Heart may be cooled to slow or stop the heartbeat so that the heart is protected from damage while surgery is performed.
  • The damaged or faulty valve is removed and replaced with the new one.
  • Patient’s heart is restarted and the opening made on the chest is closed.
  • The operation usually takes few hours.


Patient will have to stay in the hospital for about a week after the surgery. It may take 2-3 months for a complete recovery. Patients can return to their normal activities over the next few weeks.
