41-year-old woman with congestive cardiac failure undergoes successful keyhole valve replacement surgery at Fortis Malar

 CHENNAI:The cardiac surgery team headed by Dr. Thejaswi N Marla at Fortis Malar Hospital performed a challenging surgery through a minimally invasive heart procedure to get the patient’s damaged mitral valve replaced with a mechanical valve. The 41-year-old female patient, mother of two children, from a financially weaker background, got a second lease of life at Fortis Malar Hospital under Tamilnadu Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme.

 At the time of admission, the patient was suffering from multiple comorbidities with severe tightness in the main valve with severe leak in all other valves and pulmonary hypertension (PAH) with congestive cardiac failure. The patient’s complications began when the heart was no longer pumping efficiently leading to pressure in the artery carrying blood to lungs and consequently leading to kidney and liver failure. The criticality of her condition made her go from hospital to hospital as she was declined admission and finally reached Fortis Malar.  The team at Fortis Malar optimized her with medicines and revaluated to avert multiple valve replacements and repairs. With the guidance of medical experts, the patient opted for minimally invasive valve replacement surgery and got her mitral valve replaced with a mechanical one.
