heart valve replacement surgery

What is the meaning of Heart Transplant Surgery?

  • For the heart to function right, blood must flow in only one direction, which is done by the heart valves.
  • Healthy valves open and close in a precise way as the heart pumps blood. Each valve has a set of flaps called leaflets that open to allow blood to pass from the heart chambers into the arteries. Then they close pack to stop blood from flowing back into the chambers.
  • Heart surgery is performed to fix leaflets that don’t open as wide as they should, hampering the amount of blood flowing through the valve into the artery. Heart surgery also is done to fix leaflets that don’t close tightly.
  • This means blood can leak backward into the chambers, rather than only moving forward into the artery as it should. To fix it, surgeons either repair the valve or replace it.
  • Replacement valves are taken from animals, made from human tissue, or made from man-made substances.

Why would a person need to undergo Heart Valve Replacement Surgery in India?

A person would need Heart Valve Replacement Surgery for the following reasons:

  • Stenosis (valve narrowing) may be corrected by cutting, separating or reconstructing the valve leaflets, or other valve components, to widen the valve opening. Most patients with stenosed valves require valve replacement.
  • Regurgitation (valve leakage) may be corrected by replacing or shortening the supporting valve structures to allow the valve to close tightly, or by inserting a prosthetic ring to reshape a deformed valve. Valve flaps (leaflets) may also be modified to stop blood from flowing backwards.

With what is the Heart Valve Replaced ?

  • The heart valve is replaced with an artificial ( prosthetic ) valve.
  • There are two types prosthetic Valves: a) Tissue Heart Valve ( b.) Mechanical Valve

Which Heart Valves are mostly replaced?

  • Approximately, 95 percent of all valve replacements are performed for mitral or aortic valves.
  • It is the replacement of one or more of the heart valves with either an artificial heart valve or a bioprosthesis (homograft from human tissue or xenograft e.g. from pig).
  • Aortic Valve Replacement is a cardiac surgery in which the patient’s aortic valve is replaced by a different valve. The aortic valve can be affected by a range of diseases; the valve can either become leaky (aortic insufficiency / regurgitation) or partially blocked (aortic stenosis). Aortic valve replacement currently requires open heart surgery.

What should you expect before undergoing Heart Valve Replacement Surgery?

  • Your doctor will ask you for the blood tests, heart tests, including the EKG, catherization, stress tests and echocardiography, unless you already had them before your hospital admission for the surgery.
  • How long the procedure will take depends on how much heart disease is present. Your surgeon will discuss with you about this before the heart valve replacement procedure.

How is Heart Valve Replacement Surgery performed?

  • Aortic valve replacement is most frequently done through a median sternotomy, meaning the chestbone is opened in half. Once the pericardium has been opened, the patient is placed on cardiopulmonary bypass machine, also referred to as the heart-lung machine.
  • This machine takes over the task of breathing for the patient and pumping his blood around while the surgeon replaces the heart valve.
  • Once the patient is on bypass, an incision is made in the aorta. The surgeon then removes the patient’s diseased aortic valve and a mechanical or tissue valve is put in its place. Once the valve is in place and the aorta has been closed, the patient is taken off the heart-lung machine.
  • Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE, an ultra-sound of the heart done through the esophagus) can be used to verify that the new valve is functioning properly. Pacing wires are usually put in place, so that the heart can be manually paced should any complications arise after surgery.
  • Drainage tubes are also inserted to drain fluids from the chest and pericardium following surgery.
  • These are usually removed within 36 hours while the pacing wires are generally left in place until right before the patient is discharged from the hospital.

How soon will you be able to get back to routine life after your surgery?

  • A respirator may be required for the first few hours or days after surgery. After a day, the patient should be able to sit up in bed.
  • After two days, the patient may be taken out of the intensive care unit. Patients are usually discharged after about seven to ten days.
  • If the mitral valve replacement is successful, patients can expect to return to their regular condition or even better.

Heart Valve Replacement: Definition

For the heart to function right, blood must flow in only one direction, which is done by the heart valves. Healthy valves open and close in a precise way as the heart pumps blood. Each valve has a set of flaps called leaflets that open to allow blood to pass from the heart chambers into the arteries. Then they close pack to stop blood from flowing back into the chambers.

Heart surgery is performed to fix leaflets that don’t open as wide as they should, hampering the amount of blood flowing through the valve into the artery. Heart surgery also is done to fix leaflets that don’t close tightly. This means blood can leak backward into the chambers, rather than only moving forward into the artery as it should. To fix it, surgeons either repair the valve or replace it. Replacement valves are taken from animals, made from human tissue, or made from man-made substances.

Surgery for Heart Valve Repair / Replacement:

Stenosis (valve narrowing) may be corrected by cutting, separating or reconstructing the valve leaflets, or other valve components, to widen the valve opening. Most patients with stenosed valves require valve replacement.

Regurgitation (valve leakage) may be corrected by replacing or shortening the supporting valve structures to allow the valve to close tightly, or by inserting a prosthetic ring to reshape a deformed valve. Valve flaps (leaflets) may also be modified to stop blood from flowing backwards.

Annuloplasty

Annuloplasty is the surgery performed on the valve’s annulus, the ring of tissue that supports the valve leaflets. Purse-string sutures are sewn around the ring to make the opening smaller which helps the leaflets meet again when the valve closes. Sometimes when repairing the annulus, it is necessary to implant an annuloplasty ring where the leaflets meet the fibrous annulus to downsize an abnormally enlarged valve opening so the leaflets can come together properly.

Repair of structural support

Repair of structural support replaces or shortens the cords that support the valves (chordae tendineae and papillary muscles). When the cords and muscles are the right length, the valve leaflet edges meet and eliminate the leak.

Valve repair (Valvuloplasty)

Valve repair may be done when a valve leaflet is floppy and prolapses. The procedure involves surgically separating, cutting out a section, or pleating a valve leaflet.

Valve Replacement

In Valve replacement, the defective valve is replaced with an artificial (prosthetic) valve by sewing it to the annulus of the natural valve. Approximately, 95 percent of all valve replacements are performed for mitral or aortic valves. It is the replacement of one or more of the heart valves with either an artificial heart valve or a bioprosthesis (homograft from human tissue or xenograft e.g. from pig).

There are four procedures:

  • Aortic valve replacement
  • Mitral valve replacement
  • Tricuspid valve replacement
  • Pulmonary valve replacement

Aortic Valve Replacement is a cardiac surgery in which the patient’s aortic valve is replaced by a different valve. The aortic valve can be affected by a range of diseases; the valve can either become leaky (aortic insufficiency / regurgitation) or partially blocked (aortic stenosis). Aortic valve replacement currently requires open heart surgery.

What to Expect Before the Procedure?

Your doctor will ask you for the blood tests, heart tests, including the EKG, catherization, stress tests and echocardiography, unless you already had them before your hospital admission for the surgery. How long the procedure will take depends on how much heart disease is present. Your surgeon will discuss with you about this before the heart valve replacement procedure.

Surgical Procedure:

Aortic valve replacement is most frequently done through a median sternotomy, meaning the chestbone is opened in half. Once the pericardium has been opened, the patient is placed on cardiopulmonary bypass machine, also referred to as the heart-lung machine.

This machine takes over the task of breathing for the patient and pumping his blood around while the surgeon replaces the heart valve.

Once the patient is on bypass, an incision is made in the aorta. The surgeon then removes the patient’s diseased aortic valve and a mechanical or tissue valve is put in its place. Once the valve is in place and the aorta has been closed, the patient is taken off the heart-lung machine. Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE, an ultra-sound of the heart done through the esophagus) can be used to verify that the new valve is functioning properly. Pacing wires are usually put in place, so that the heart can be manually paced should any complications arise after surgery. Drainage tubes are also inserted to drain fluids from the chest and pericardium following surgery. These are usually removed within 36 hours while the pacing wires are generally left in place until right before the patient is discharged from the hospital.

Mitral valve replacement is a cardiac procedure in which a patient’s mitral valve is replaced by a different valve. Mitral valve replacement is typically performed robotically or manually, when the valve becomes too tight (mitral valve stenosis) for blood to flow into the left ventricle, or too loose (mitral valve regurgitation) in which case blood can leak into the left atrium and back up into the lung. Some individuals have a combination of mitral valve stenosis and mitral valve regurgitation or simply one or the other.

A mitral valve replacement/repair is performed to treat severe cases of mitral valve prolapse, heart valve stenosis, or other valvular diseases. Since a mitral valve replacement is an open heart surgical procedure, it requires placing the patient on cardiopulmonary bypass to stop blood flow through the heart when it is opened up.

When the valve narrows or is stenotic the valve doesn’t let blood flow easily into the heart, causing the blood to back up and pressure to build up in the lungs. This is dangerous because when the leaflets in the valve don’t meet correctly, blood may leak backwards into the lungs each time the heart pumps. If blood leaks backwards, the heart has to pump harder in order to push the same amount of blood forward. This is known as volume overload. The heart may compensate for this overload for many months or even years but eventually the heart begin to fail and patients show symptoms of shortness of breath or fatigue.

What to Expect After the Procedure?

  • After the replacement of your heart valve, the surgery is completed and your heart starts beating on its own.
  • All the incisions made during the surgical procedure will be sewn or stapled closed.
  • Post surgery, you will spend some time in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), where you’ll be closely monitored to ensure there are no complications.
  • After that, you’ll be moved to another room in the hospital where your family and friends will be able to visit you.

Non-Surgical Options:

Most patients can endure surgery without complications; however, there are some whose heart functions are too weak to endure a surgery. Non-surgical approaches are divided into three categories: Clinical Practice treatment (this is used in everyday clinical practice), Investigational treatment (current clinical studies that are underway), Early Development treatment (early stages of investigation).

Risks:

With mitral valve replacement surgery, there are risks such as bleeding, infection, or a complicated reaction to anesthesia. Each risk is determined best with each patients own cardiologist and cardiothoracic surgeon. They will better know each individuals medical history and conditions. Risks depend on a patient’s age, general condition, specific medical conditions, and heart function.

Effectiveness:

In a clinical study done of 99 patients who had mitral valve surgery for regurgitation from January 1990 to June 1996, long-term and short-term outcomes were evaluated. These evaluations included; mortality rate, clinical complications, readmissions, valve deterioration, reoperation, and health perception. Overall mortality was 4%, which included 3 operative deaths and 4 late deaths. Overall 5-year survival rate was 92%.

Condition after mitral valve replacement:

After the surgery the patient is taken to a post-operative intensive care unit for monitoring. A respirator may be required for the first few hours or days after surgery. After a day, the patient should be able to sit up in bed. After two days, the patient may be taken out of the intensive care unit. Patients are usually discharged after about seven to ten days. If the mitral valve replacement is successful, patients can expect to return to their regular condition or even better.
