Heart Double Valve Replacement
Heart valve replacement is an open heart surgery. In double valve replacement there is a replacement of both the mitral and the aortic valve, or the entire left side of the heart.
Heart Double Valve Replacement Procedure
- Surgery is performed under general anaesthesia with techniques that are either conventional or minimally invasive.
- Conventional surgery requires a large incision from the neck to the navel.
- During majority of procedures, the heart will be temporarily stopped and the patient will be put on a heart/lung machine that takes over the breathing and blood circulation.
- Alternatively, there are some procedures that may be performed on a beating heart. The surgeon will decide which type of procedure is best for the patient.
After the procedure
When the heart valve has been replaced and the surgery is completed, the heart will be beating on its own and all incisions will be sewn or stapled closed.
Following the surgery, patient will spend some time in the intensive care unit (ICU), where they will be closely monitored to make sure there are no complications. After that, the patient will be moved to another room.
Patient will have to stay in the hospital for approximately five to seven days. Full recovery can take a few weeks or up to several months, depending on the rate of healing and the type of surgery that was performed.
