Jinan Al Jammor from Iraq, who is 55 years old, was diagnosed with valve damage right after her birth. She had mild symptoms for several years. However, her chest pain was aggravated recently. After remaining unassuaged with local physicians, she looked out for the best and the most affordable cardiologists worldwide. Soon, she was absolutely certain that she wanted to consult Dr. Ashok Seth, an interventional cardiologist at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute. As her husband quoted, ”My wife has valve damage when she was born. Now she is having pain and I want to consult Dr. Ashok Seth who is one of the top 10 best cardiologists in India.’’
Congenital valve disease happens when a heart’s valves don’t develop before birth. Sometimes the defect keeps the valve from closing completely, which means blood can flow back into the heart. Then the heart has to work extra hard to pump it out again. Over time, that strain can cause serious issues. The patient usually notes symptoms including fatigue, shortness of breath and palpitations.
To accelerate the process, they made a move and contacted Vaidam. The needful initiatives were carried out and the patient got her appointment booked on 13-07-2018 with Dr. Ashok Seth at Fortis Escorts Heart Institute- one of the best cardiology hospitals in India. She arrived on 12-07-2018. The physician had a meticulous conversation with Jinan and took a thorough medical history. This was followed by a few diagnostic tests including ECG, MRI, a CT scan and a chest x-ray. Subsequently, she was advised to undergo a valve replacement surgery. The surgery was performed on 17-07-2018. She was anxious and nervous in the beginning, but she was made comfortable by the staff after a while. The surgery went for about 3 hours and was carried out successfully without any significant complications. The patient stayed in ICU for about 3 days for recovery. She was given some post-operational pieces of advice including eating a healthy diet, getting regular physical activity and managing stress. She went back on 01-08-2018.
Jinan is now abundantly relieved. Her symptoms have been pacified and she is able to live her life even more enthusiastically.
Vaidam wishes her a happy and a healthy life ahead.
