What is aortic surgery?

Aortic surgery is a procedure in which the damaged segment of the aorta is replaced with a synthetic graft that is sewed into place. When performed under elective conditions, the vast majority of these procedures can be completed with a minimally invasive incision in the aortic root, ascending aorta, and aortic arch.

Aortic valve surgery is performed by heart surgeons to treat most commonly bicuspid valves, other congenital aortic valve diseases, aortic valve stenosis, and aortic valve regurtation.

Understanding the signs that might require an aortic valve surgery:

  • Sound of a whooshing or swishing heart (heart murmur)
  • Pain or congestion in the chest
  • Dizziness
  • Loss of consciousness
  • After-activity fatigue or a reduced ability to be active
  • When the heartbeat is irregular, the condition is called irregular heartbeat.
  • Shortness of breath, especially when engaged in strenuous exercise or when lying down
  • Not getting enough food (mainly in children with aortic valve stenosis)
  • Insufficient weight gain

Benefits of undergoing an aortic surgery:

People who undergo the aortic valve disease treatment tend to have:

Restoration of normal level of blood flow

Improved quality of life

Reduced symptoms of the underlying condition

Enhanced muscular function

Diagnosis before the surgery:

There are various tests and procedures that help the specialist determine the procedure:

Echocardiogram:

An echocardiogram is a type of heart ultrasonography. Sound waves are employed to create moving images of the heart. An echocardiogram allows doctors to examine the aortic valve and aorta in greater detail. It can assist in determining the source of aortic valve disease as well as the severity of the condition.

Electrocardiogram:

This noninvasive test records the heart's electrical activity. On the chest and, in certain cases, the legs, sticky patches containing sensors (electrodes) are applied. The patches are connected to a computer through wires, which shows the results. Consulting the best hospital for aortic root surgery can help in providing safe treatment.

Cardiac computerized tomography (CT) scan:

A cardiac CT scan creates comprehensive images of the heart and heart valves using a succession of X-rays. This imaging technique can help doctors assess the size of the aorta and inspect the aortic valve more thoroughly.

Types of aortic surgery:

Aortic Valve Repair :

Surgical repair of the aortic valve in selected patients with severe aortic valve regurgitation as the underlying cause of valvular dysfunction is an option. This is especially beneficial for people under the age of 40 who have a bicuspid aortic valve.

Aortic Root Replacement :

A composite valve graft consisting of either a mechanical or biological valve prosthesis is used to replace the aortic root.

Ascending Aorta Replacement :

Replacement of the ascending aorta from the level of the sinotubular junction to that of the innominate artery. This cardiac valve surgery may or may not be performed in conjunction with repairing or replacing a concurrent valve or valves.

Aortic Stenosis :

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive treatment to replace a constricted aortic valve that fails to open correctly (aortic valve stenosis) (aortic valve stenosis).

FAQ Questions? Answered!

Aortic illness necessitates aortic valve treatment for a variety of reasons. Surgery is required when an arterial wall in the aorta weakens and abnormally swells or bulges while blood is pumped through it. An aortic aneurysm is a swelling of the aorta that can cause aortic dissection.
After aortic surgery, most people need at least 4 to 6 weeks to recover. Recovery may take 2 to 3 months if your aneurysm is large, requires intervention to correct other issues, or you have other medical concerns such as heart, lung, or renal disorders.
It's possible that the procedure will take 5 hours or more. Over the course of your life, you may require many surgical repairs. This is based on the health of the aortic valve and cardiac arteries. To make you as comfortable as possible, you will be given a general anaesthetic and sleep through the procedure.
Blood will flow freely via the graft in the aorta, bypassing the aneurysm. For 1 to 2 weeks, the sites where the catheters were put should feel sore. The doctor may need to remove any stitches or staples you have. You may feel more sleepy than usual for the first 1 to 2 weeks after surgery.
Chest soreness or pain, dizziness or light-headedness, back pain, coughing up blood (hemoptysis), and loss of consciousness due to aortic ruptures are all warning signs and symptoms indicating aortic surgery may be recommended.
