Heart Valve Replacement Surgery in Lagos
If the patient has an Aortic valve condition that prevents the valve from operating properly and restricts blood supply from the heart to the rest of the body, an Aortic valve repair or reconstruction is performed. The type of disease and degree of valve function dysfunction determine the diagnosis and treatment.
The natural valve is replaced with a mechanical man-built valve made of solid, long-lasting materials. Mechanical heart valves are usually bi-leaflet, which means the valve has two leaflets that function as a “unidirectional mechanism,” ensuring that blood flows in the correct direction, from the ventricle to the aorta, with no risk of backflow.
