Aortic valve endoprosthetics
Endoprosthetics of the aortic valve is a minimally invasive operation that avoids opening the chest and connecting the patient to the cardiopulmonary bypass system. The implant (valve prosthesis) is delivered to the heart through a catheter inserted into the vessel bed. Endovascular intervention is tolerated by patients of a significantly traditional nature, and the rehabilitation period is reduced several times.
The placement of a heart implant is indicated for patients with severe aortic stenosis. With a narrowing of the valve lumen, the outflow of blood from the left ventricle to the aorta, which is responsible for the blood supply to the whole body, is disturbed; therefore, it is the stenosis of the valve that is often the cause of sudden death.
Features of the operation
Endovascular surgery is the only possible treatment for patients with high surgical risk. Valve replacement is performed through a puncture in the femoral artery with X-ray control. Anesthesia - local or intravenous.
Advantages of the endovascular method:
- do not use general anesthesia;
- minimal blood loss and trauma (the chest is not dissected);
- short rehabilitation period;
- low probability of infection;
- no need to take strong painkillers during the postoperative period.
