About Balloon Valvuloplasty

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is Balloon Valvuplasty?
Balloon valvuloplasty is a minimally invasive procedure in which a narrowed heart valve is stretched open using a catheter with an inflatable balloon at its tip.
The catheter is inserted through the groin artery and is slowly guided by the physician until it reaches the heart valve. The balloon is then inflated, enlarging the valve opening.

What conditions are treated with Balloon Valvuplasty?
Balloon Valvuplasty may be used to treat valve stenosis (narrowing of the heart valves) in children and adults.
The procedure's puspose is to improve valve function and blood flow.
In children, this procedure is usually considered for pulmonary valves stenosis.
With adults it may be used for mitral valve stenosis, however because the stenosis frequently re-occurs in adult patients with valvular diseases, the it is recommended only as an emergency rescue for patients who are not candidates for valve replacement.

Who usually performs the Balloon Valvuplasty?
An interventional cardiologist, a vasular surgeon or an interventional radiologist.

Is it painfull?
When the balloon is inflated, you may feel pain. The pain is usually temporary, but you should always inform your physician about any pain.

Duration of procedure/surgery : up to 4 hours

Days admitted : 1-3 days at the hospital.

Anesthesia : Local anesthesia
