What is valvuloplasty?

The valve flaps (leaflets) may become thick or stiff, and they may fuse together (stenosis). This causes the valve opening to be narrowed and results in reduced blood flow through the valve. There are many kinds of treatments available for valve conditions. If a patient has severe valve stenosis and is experiencing symptoms, the doctor may recommend valvuloplasty.

• Patients with mitral stenosis and valve conditions

Some tests are required before the surgery to allow the surgeon to control the probable risks. The patients are admitted to hospital from the night before, and since the midnight drinking or eating is forbidden. The doctor prescribes the necessary instructions It is also necessary to take aspirin and other medicines to dilute blood which is prescribed by doctor before surgery. Patients have to notify their doctor about all the medications that they are taking.
