Treatments and Surgical Options

Medical care is essential once heart disease is diagnosed, with the goals of stabilizing the condition immediately, controlling symptoms over the long term, and providing a cure when possible.

Valve Replacement

The need for heart valve repair or replacement surgery may arise when valves are damaged or diseased and do not work well.

Valve Opening

Valve Stenosis occurs when a valve doesn’t open fully. The valve may have become hardened or stiff with calcium deposits or scarring. Some reasons why heart valves become narrow and stiff include infection (such as rheumatic fever) and aging. Stiffening or narrowing of valve(s).

Repairing or replacing valves through Catheter procedures (Non-Surgical)

In this procedure, a thin tube (catheter) is inserted into a blood vessel (in the groin or arm) and is threaded to the heart guided by imaging techniques. The catheter enables the interventionalist to have a better view of the inside on a video monitor and conduct the procedure.

Open-heart surgery

When the condition can’t be managed solely by medications, an open-heart surgery might be recommended. This surgery is carried out under the influence of general anaesthesia and requires the use of a heart-lung machine to substitute the essential functions of the heart and the lungs during the surgery. A small cut is placed between the child’s ribs to reach his heart or the damaged valve and the defect is repaired using stitches or clips. In cases where heart valves are severely damaged, the damaged valves may be replaced by artificial valves (made from animal valves or human valves taken from donors).

The duration largely depends upon the number of valves to be replaced or repaired. Minimally Invasive Cathartic procedures (Non-Surgical) have a shorter recovery time than surgery. They are often preferred over surgical repair or replacement as they are less painful.
