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 regurgitation.
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
There are various tests and procedures that help the specialist determine
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.
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.
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.
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.
A composite valve graft consisting of either a mechanical or biological valve prosthesis is used to replace the aortic root.
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.
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).
My mother continuously complained about chest pain, and she lacked energy, and we wanted to make sure everything was fine. We reached out to Sri Ramakrishna Hospital for help upon a relative's reference. Luckily we were right in time, and the doctor informed us that she had swelling on the aortic nerve, which was causing the pain. And she underwent surgery, after which, within 5 weeks, she recovered and is completely healthy. Thank you, Sri Ramakrishna Hospital, for your quick treatment.
Firstly I would like to thank Sri Ramakrishna Hospital for the doctors at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital who provided the advanced treatment and care provided to my father-in-law, who got admitted for aortic surgery. He has a bulge in the heart nerves, which is causing him discomfort. Thankfully the procedure was smooth, and in no time, he recovered. Thank you, Sri Ramakrishna Hospital, for providing the treatment.
