Patient Testimonial for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

Testimonial by Mr. Shaik Mahaboob Saheb

Treatment for: Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement
Treated by: Dr. V. Rajasekhar
Patient location: Ongole

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a procedure used for individuals who are unable to undergo open cardiac surgery due to the risk of complications. It is a minimally invasive heart treatment used to replace an aortic valve that has thickened and cannot fully open (aortic valve stenosis). Chest pain, shortness of breath, fainting, and weariness are some of the indications and symptoms of aortic valve stenosis that can be reduced with TAVR.

After the patient has been sedated, the surgeon starts the procedure. Additionally, IVs are used to administer drugs that lower the risk of infection and blood clotting. A catheter is inserted by the surgeon into a blood vessel in the chest or groyne and is then guided to the heart. The hollow catheter is used to insert a replacement valve made of cow or pig tissue into the aortic valve region. The new valve is pushed into position by an inflated balloon at the catheter’s tip. The catheter is then withdrawn and the procedure is completed.

The length of the patient’s hospital stay will depend on their health. Some patients are able to return home the next day, while others need to be carefully monitored for a few more days. Driving shouldn’t be done for another 72 hours. Ten days after the operation, the patient can gradually resume everyday activities. The patient is strongly recommended not to smoke.
