Patient Testimonial for Permanent Pacemaker Implantation(PPI), Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation(TAVI)

Testimonial by Mr. T. Veeranna

Treatment for: Aortic Valve Disease
Treated by: Dr. Kala Jeethender Jain
Patient location: Mahabubabad

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) is a minimally invasive procedure used to replace a damaged aortic valve in the heart. It is often performed for individuals with severe aortic valve stenosis, a condition where the valve becomes narrowed, restricting blood flow from the heart to the rest of the body. TAVI is typically recommended for patients who are considered high-risk or ineligible for traditional open-heart surgery. During the procedure, a catheter carrying a replacement valve is guided through a blood vessel, usually in the groin, to the heart. Once in position, the new valve is expanded, effectively restoring proper blood flow. Risks and complications associated with TAVI may include bleeding, stroke, heart rhythm disturbances, damage to blood vessels, or leakage around the new valve. However, TAVI offers a less invasive alternative with shorter recovery times compared to traditional surgery.

Permanent Pacemaker Implantation is a procedure involving the placement of a small device under the skin, usually near the collarbone, to help regulate abnormal heart rhythms. It is commonly recommended for individuals with conditions like bradycardia (slow heart rate) or certain heart rhythm disorders. During the procedure, insulated wires (leads) are threaded through veins into the heart and connected to the pacemaker device, which monitors the heart’s rhythm and delivers electrical impulses when needed to maintain a normal heartbeat. Risks associated with pacemaker implantation include infection, bleeding, damage to blood vessels or nerves, and, in rare cases, lead dislodgment or device malfunction. However, a pacemaker can significantly improve the quality of life for individuals with heart rhythm abnormalities by ensuring the heart beats at a regular and appropriate rate.

Mr. T. Veeranna from Mahabubabad successfully underwent TAVI and Permanent Pacemaker Implantation at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. Kala Jeethender Jain, Consultant Interventional Cardiologist.
