Valvuplasty Surgery in Lagos
Balloon valvuloplasty (also known as valvulotomy or valvotomy) is a treatment for widening a closed heart valve. Aortic valve stenosis is the cause of this narrowing of the aortic valve.
The doctor inserts a small, flexible tube called a catheter into a blood vessel during this procedure. The doctor inserts the tubing into the patient’s heart into the blood artery. By enlarging the valve opening, the purpose of this operation is to increase valve function and blood flow. The heart valves can not function properly if they get affected.
In infants, balloon valvuloplasty is a safe and successful therapy that increases blood supply and heart function.
