Patient Testimonial for Aortic Valve Replacement

Testimonial by Mrs. Lakshmi

Treatment for: Aortic Valve Endocarditis
Treated by: Dr. Somnath Gupta & Dr. Vikram Reddy
Patient location: Karimnagar

Aortic Valve Endocarditis is a serious condition that results from inflammation of the inner lining of the aortic valve, which controls blood flow in the heart. The condition is often caused by bacterial or fungal infections, but can also occur due to other factors such as congenital heart conditions or long-term catheter use. Symptoms of endocarditis can vary and may include chest pain, fever, fatigue, shortness of breath, and unexplained weight loss.

The diagnosis of endocarditis typically involves a blood culture, a complete blood count, and imaging tests such as an echocardiogram, an MRI, or a CT scan. Treatment typically includes antibiotics and surgery to repair or replace damaged heart valves to help reduce symptoms and the risk of complications, such as heart failure, a heart attack, or a stroke.

Aortic valve replacement is a surgical procedure used to treat damaged or diseased aortic valves. This procedure can be done through open-heart surgery or minimally invasive techniques. It can help improve blood flow and reduce symptoms of heart valve disease, resulting in a better quality of life.

Mrs. Lakshmi from Karimnagar successfully underwent Aortic Valve Replacement for Aortic Valve Endocarditis at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. Somnath Gupta, Consultant Physician & Diabetologist and Dr. Vikram Reddy, Sr. Consultant Cardiothoracic Surgeon.
