Aortic Valve

Aortic valve is located between left ventricle and aorta. It opens when the heart contracts so as to allow the blood to flow forward and closes when the heart relaxes, thereby preventing leakage.

AORTIC STENOSIS

  • Aortic stenosis refers to the narrowing of aortic valve, thereby restricting forward flow from the heart.
  • It can be congenital, when it is present at birth or acquired.
  • It is a lethal disease. 50% of patients die at 2 years of onset of symptoms, if treated with medicines.
  • Treatment is aortic valve replacement either surgically or by catheter technology (TAVI).
  • Patient can have following symptoms:
    • Shortness of breath on exertion.
    • Chest pain.
    • Syncope/loss of consciousness.
    • Dizziness.

AORTIC REGURGITATION

  • It refers to leaky aortic valve.
  • Definitive treatment is surgical valve replacement.
  • Patient can have following symptoms:
    • Palpitation
    • Shortness of breath

MITRAL VALVE

Mitral valve is a valve between left atrium and left ventricle. It’s name is derived from resemblance to “ Bishop’s Mitrae”.

MITRAL STENOSIS

  • Mitral stenosis refers to narrowing of mitral valve.
  • As a result pure blood from lungs cannot flow freely into left ventricle.
  • It can be treated by catheter technology where we can dilate the valve or by surgical replacement.
  • Patient can have following symptoms:
    • Shortness of breath on exertion.
    • Palpation
    • Dizziness/syncope.
    • Cough/hemoptysis.

MITRAL REGURGITATION

  • Mitral regurgitation refers to leaking of blood back into the the left atrium and lungs.
  • There are multiple reasons for a leaky mitral valve such as:
    • Torn chordae
    • Thick and floppy leaflets
    • Cleft in the leaflets
    • Weakening of heart muscle
    • Heart attack
  • It can be treated by:
    • Mitral valve repair
    • Mitral valve replacement
    • Mitraclip (Catheter based treatment)

PULMONARY VALVE

Pulmonary valve is present between right ventricle and pulmonary artery. It is mostly affected in congenital (by birth) heart diseases.

PULMONARY STENOSIS

  • Balloon Pulmonary dilatation.
  • Pulmonary valve replacement.
  • Melody valve (Transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement)

PULMONARY VALVE REGURGITATION

  • Pulmonary regurgitation refers to leaky pulmonary valve.
  • It can be delayed by cardiac surgery during childhood.
  • It can be treated with:
    • Melody Valve (Transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement)
    • Surgery

TRICUSPID VALVE

Primary tricuspid valve diseases are mostly congenital. It secondarily affected when other heart valves are damaged. It can be repaired surgically.
