Bentall Surgery in Lagos
The Bentall operation is a form of extreme open-heart surgery used to restore the aortic root and valve, which could be required in the case of an aortic aneurysm in this area of the aorta.
Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects a person’s connective tissue, including some of the tissue in the aortic root and valve, is one of the most common. This can result in the area failing to form normally or developing complications over time. A individual with Marfan syndrome can develop an aneurysm in their ascending aorta, in addition to other medical issues.
