About Valve Replacement

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.

Aortic valve replacement is a cardiac procedure in which the patient's aortic valve is replaced by a different valve.
Aortic valve replacement can be done either with open heart surgery, or by using a catheter (PAVR - percutaneous aortic valve replacement).
The replacement valves used in the procedure are either natural (biologic) or artificial (mechanical).

Days admitted : 1-3 days at the intensive care unit. The total time in the hospital is usually between 5 and 12 days.

Anesthesia : General anesthesia

Recovery : Recovery from aortic valve replacement usually takes a few weeks to several months, depending on your health before the surgery.

Risks : The death rate averages 1% to 5%, depending on the health and age of the patient, as well as the skill of the surgeon.
