Heart Valve Repair and Replacement
The heart has 4 pumping chambers: 2 upper chambers, called atria, and 2 lower chambers, called the ventricles. The valves between these chambers help the blood keep flowing. And when these valves are damaged and do not work, they may need to be repaired or replaced. The conditions which affect them are stiffness or leaky valve. Traditionally, open-heart surgeries are performed to treat this where the heart is stopped and taken out for a while and the valves are replaced or repaired.
To understand the heart valve defects, the symptoms might be dizziness, chest pain, palpitations, breathlessness, swelling of feet, ankles or abdomen, irregular heartbeats and rapid weight gain due to fluid retention. All these may also cause pulmonary hypertension. And after the surgery, there might be some fever or chills, bruising, redness, swelling at the incision site, trouble in breathing, vomiting, and weakness in legs and hands.
