What is Balloon Valvuloplasty?

Balloon valvuloplasty is a cardiac procedure that uses a catheter with a balloon at the tip to open up stenotic or stiffened heart valves (such as the aortic or mitral). Balloon valvotomy is another term for this procedure. It is a less invasive treatment because the valve is replaced percutaneously rather than through cardiothoracic surgery or other open methods.

A tiny flexible tube (catheter) is introduced into the heart through an artery in the groin or arm and threaded into the heart by the cardiologist. A balloon device on the catheter's tip is swiftly inflated when the tube reaches the constricted mitral valve. As the balloon presses on the restricted or fused mitral valve leaflets, they are split and expanded open. This procedure enlarges the aperture of the mitral valve, allowing more blood to flow from the left atrium to the left ventricle.

Balloon valvotomy has several types, depending upon which heart valve is involved for example:

  • Percutaneous balloon tricuspid valvuloplasty
  • Percutaneous balloon pulmonary valvuloplasty
  • Percutaneous balloon mitral valvuloplasty
  • Percutaneous balloon aortic valvuloplasty

This procedure is done to improve blood flow through a heart valve. Better blood flow will relieve symptoms. For most, the improvement will last at least 2 years.

When is Balloon Valvuloplasty required?

If you have significant stenosis and the structure of your mitral valve appears to be repairable with a valvotomy, a balloon valvotomy may be indicated. To determine if a valvotomy is correct for you, your doctor will look at a few other factors. These factors include your overall health and whether or not you are experiencing any symptoms.

If you have blood clots in the left atrium, a lot of calcium accumulation on the mitral valve, or moderate to severe mitral valve regurgitation, balloon valvotomy is not a good option.

How is Balloon Valvuloplasty done?

Step 1

The cardiologist starts by making a small incision into an artery or vein in the groin.

Step 2

Then, the team inserts a catheter (a thin, hollow tube) and threads it through the artery to the heart and valve that is experiencing a problem.

Step 3

At the tip of the catheter is a large, inflatable balloon. Upon arriving at the site of the affected valve, the surgical team then inflates the balloon, expanding the narrowed or compromised valve. This results in increased blood flow.

What is the Recovery after Balloon Valvuloplasty like?

You may be transferred to the recovery room for observation after the surgery. You will be required to lie flat in bed for many hours. Your vital signs, the insertion site, and circulation and sensation in the affected limb or arm will all be monitored by a nurse.

Pain medication is administered as-needed. To assist flush the contrast dye from your body, you will be encouraged to drink water and other fluids. At the injection area, there will be a little knot or lump under the skin. This is very normal. Over the course of a few weeks, the knot should fade away. You would be able to resume daily activities in a week to ten days and rigorous activities after about 4-6 weeks.

Some patients will continue to take anticoagulant medications for months or years after the surgery and will have regular blood tests to monitor the effectiveness of the medication.

What Results Can I Expect from Balloon Valvuloplasty?

Balloon valvotomy improves the valve's regular function in allowing blood to pass through the heart. Symptoms are relieved as blood flow improves. The left atrium's blood pressure drops, which helps reduce the symptoms of lung congestion. The benefits can last decades. The quality of life also improves because patients no longer have difficulty breathing or palpitations.

Patient Testimonials

  • My dad was advised cardiac bypass surgery in CA, USA, but because of being uninsured, such high costs of cardiac surgery in the US, we were really not able to afford it. IndiCure has actually helped in saving my dad's life and we are really grateful for the same.
    I am falling short of words, to express my gratitude to the surgeon who was very helpful and courteous.
    Will recommend IndiCure to everyone!

Frequently Asked Questions

No, balloon valvuloplasty is not an invasive procedure. Percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty is a minimally invasive treatment done by inserting a catheter through the groin. The catheter has a little deflated balloon at its tip, which is used to open constricted heart valves.

Balloon valvuloplasty is an effective procedure for aortic valve stenosis in children, teenagers, and young adults, but it gives little success in older adults.

Valvuloplasty normally takes 1 to 2 hours to complete.

Due to restenosis, balloon valvuloplasty is ineffective in older persons, as the valve narrows again within 6 to 12 months following the treatment.

Balloon mitral valvuloplasty typically lasts five to seven years in children and young adults, and it is safe to repeat the treatment. However, in older adults, the valve narrows again (restenosis) within 6 to 12 months following the treatment.

Balloon valvuloplasty is a typically effective treatment for aortic valve stenosis in youngsters, but its efficacy in older individuals is restricted.

No, valvuloplasty isn't a long-term fix. Adults may benefit from balloon valvuloplasty for immediate alleviation and improved heart function, but there is a high risk of restenosis, necessitating valve replacement in the future.

Aortic stenosis is a form of valve disease in which the valves gradually harden due to calcium deposition on the valves, causing the valves to stiffen and not fully open. This narrows the passageway for blood to pass through. To pump blood through this narrower hole, the heart must work harder.

If you have mild or moderate aortic valve stenosis, your doctor will monitor you on a regular basis. You will most likely wait till your stenosis is severe before having surgery. Balloon valvuloplasty is a procedure that enlarges the valve opening in some young persons or pregnant women. If you have significant stenosis, a valve replacement is likely. An open-heart surgery or a minimally invasive method can be used to replace a valve.

If you have significant stenosis and do not receive treatment, you run the danger of dying abruptly or having heart failure.

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless. All of the hospital staff was amazing. Read Michelle Williams's Review About IndiCure Here
