  2. 2. Call Us : +91-9811058159 Mail Us : Valvuloplasty is performed, in certain circumstances, to open a stenotic (stiff) heart valve. In valvuloplasty, a very small, narrow, hollow tube, or catheter, is advanced from a blood vessel in the groin through the aorta into the heart. Once the catheter is placed in the valve to be opened, a large balloon at the tip of the catheter is inflated until the leaflets (flaps) of the valve are opened. Once the valve has been opened, the balloon is deflated and the catheter is removed. Other related procedures that may be used to assess and treat the heart include resting and exercise electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), Holter monitor, signal-averaged ECG, cardiac catheterization, chest x-ray, computed tomography (CT scan) of the chest, coronary artery bypass graft surgery, valve repair/replacement surgery, echocardiography, electrophysiological studies, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the heart, myocardial perfusion scans, radionuclide angiography, and ultrafast CT scan. What is Valvuloplasty ?
  3. 3. Call Us : +91-9811058159 Mail Us : Why is Valvuloplasty performed? Valves are doors or gates that are present in the heart. Depending on their location, they can be aortic, pulmonary, mitral, and tricuspid valves. These valves control the flow of blood to and from the heart. When these valves become narrow (stenosis) due to hardening and calcium deposits, Valvuloplasty is performed to enlarge the narrowed opening and facilitate the flow of blood through them
  4. 4. Call Us : +91-9811058159 Mail Us : Who is an ideal candidate for Valvuloplasty? Valvuloplasty is used for selective patients who have mitral valve stenosis or pulmonary valve stenosis and cannot undergo a Open Heart Surgery or Beating Heart Surgery (major surgery) for Heart Valve Replacement. Valvuloplasty is also a procedure of choice in older or debilitated patients with aortic stenosis who are considered high risk for above mentioned major surgical procedures. Valvuloplasty is also indicated in children with congenital aortic stenosis, until the child is old enough to have Heart Valve Replacement surgery.
  5. 5. Call Us : +91-9811058159 Mail Us : Reasons for the Procedure Valvuloplasty is performed in certain situations in order to open a heart valve that has become stiff as a result of disease or the aging process. Not all conditions in which a heart valve becomes stiff are treatable with valvuloplasty. There may be other reasons for your physician to recommend a valvuloplasty.
