More 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. During this surgery, the damaged valve is removed and replaced with an artificial valve. The valve replacement is mostly an open-heart surgery, in few cases a minimally invasive surgery or a catheter procedure may be possible. 

Diagnosis for aortic valve replacement surgery


  • Aortic stenosis - when  the opening of the valve becomes smaller, obstructing the flow of blood out of the heart

  • Aortic regurgitation - when the valve is leaky  allowing  blood to flow back through into the heart .


Signs of heart failure requiring valve replacement

  • shortness of breath

  • Angina

  • Dizziness

  • Fainting

  • Swelling of ankles , feet and legs

  • Fatigue


Physical Exam

  • With stethoscope to check for heart murmur caused by a heart valve problem.

  • Your doctor will check for fluid  in lungs

  • check for swollen ankles and other signs for water retention .


Diagnostic Tests

  • Echocardiography (echo) is the main test for diagnosing heart valve disease .

  • Transesophageal echo, or TEE, to get a better image of your heart

  • ECG (electrocardiogram) to diagnose irregular heart beat and signs of previous heart attack

  • Chest x ray- to see if heart enlarged or fluid in lung or calcium deposists in heart.

  • cardiac catheterization, stress testing, or cardiac MRI help your doctor assess how severe your condition is so he or she can plan your treatment.


Types of  Aortic Valve Surgery  

  • Open Aortic valve replacement via sternotomy – wherein damaged aortic valve is replaced by surgery
  • Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) – the replacement valve is guided into place through the blood vessels, rather than through a large incision in the chest
  • Minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) -


Procedure for Aortic Valve Replacement

Before procedure

  • Standard blood and  tests and  performed to check fitness for surgery .

  • Patient counselled  about the procedure and after care


During Procedure(open surgery )

  • Procedure performed under general anaesthesia

  • IV  line inserted , breathing tube is inserted and catheter put in bladder

  • Incision  made in middle  of chest ,surgeon  separates sternum to expose pericardium ,then  opens pericardium to expose heart

  • Connects heart  to heart lung machine , tubes are used to reroute the blood into machine which takes over the function of heart and lung during the operation

  • Heart is temporarily stopped and blood removed , aortic valve is still and allows surgeon to see it .

  • Surgeon opens aorta to see aortic valve , makes incision around edge of damaged  valve and replaces it .

  • The surgeon then closes the aorta with stitches , blood allowed to flow into heart to check the function of heart , if needed electric shock given to heart to restart the heart .

  • Temporary pacemaker wires on surface to ensure normal rhythm of heart


After Procedure

After an aortic valve replacement, you'll usually need to stay in hospital for about a week.

You will be kept in intensive care unit (ICU) for the first day or two after your operation, before moving to a surgical ward.

  • you'll be given painkillers

  • a tube attached to a ventilator will be placed until you're able to breathe

  • You may have several tubes and monitors attached to you ,

  •  Draining tube  – small tubes from your chest to drain away any build-up of blood or fluid

  • Pacing wires – if necessary, these will be inserted near the chest drains to control your heart rate


After care

  • Adviced to follow a cardiac rehabilitation programme

  • avoid strenuous exercise, sudden strains and heavy lifting for three months

  • you may not be able to drive for around six weeks

  • report to the physician if signs of infection
