In a remarkable medical achievement, PSRI Hospital, a renowned healthcare facility, has successfully conducted a rare heart procedure (arguably the first such case in North India) on a 71-year-old male patient from Odisha. The patient was admitted with a critical heart condition involving an abnormally dilated major artery, posing an imminent risk of rupture.
The patient arrived at the hospital with complaints of chest pain and shortness of breath, indicating a severe cardiovascular condition.
Upon examination, the cardiac team at the hospital found that the major artery responsible for supplying blood to the heart was massively dilated, along with a tear (an impending rupture). Addressing this complex problem called for the need to correct the aortic valve along with the aorta.
The medical team, led by Dr. Chandola, recognised that he needed to reconstruct the entire aortic valve (valve repair or reimplantation) along with aortic reconstruction.
Traditionally, valve replacement involves implanting either a metal valve or an animal valve. However, both of these options come with inherent risks of thromboembolism and valve distinction (degeneration).
