Aortic Valve Replacement Video
At the request of my readers and blog subscribers, I am going to start posting heart valve surgery videos at this website to help patients and caregivers better understand what happens during a heart valve repair or heart valve replacement surgery.
- Aortic valve replacement surgery in which the diseased aortic valve that suffers from stenosis or regurgitation is replaced with a mechanical or biological tissue valve.
- Aortic valve repair surgery in which the valve is reconstructed -- either the annulus or leaflets -- to enhance valvular function.
The link above is for an aortic valve surgery video. Over the next few days, I am going to post several other heart valve surgery videos, Ross Procedure videos and more!
