Aortic Valve Replacement

An Aaortic 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. 

  • 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 .

Types of  Aortic Valve Surgery  

  • Open Aortic Valve Replacement via Sternotomy– wherein damaged aortic valve is replaced by surgery.

  • 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
