Double Valve Replacement

 

A double valve replacement is a replacement of both the mitral and the aortic valve, or the entire left side of the heart. This type of surgery is not as common as the others but recommended for complicated cases of valvular disease. There are 4 Valves in our heart including the Mitral, Tricuspid, Aortic and Pulmonic Valves.

The 4 heart valves play a critical role in the organ’s function by regulating blood flow through the heart and preventing blood from flowing the wrong way. The heart consists of 4 chambers, 2 upper atria and 2 lower ventricles. 2 valves – a one-way inlet valve and a one-way outlet valve – are located in each ventricle (lower heart chamber). In the right ventricle, the tricuspid valve is the inlet valve, sending blood to the lungs via the pulmonary arteries. The mitral valve is the inlet valve for the left ventricle – receiving oxygenated blood from the left atrium from the lungs—and the aortic valve is the outlet valve, which opens into the aorta.

The valves of the heart are responsible for allowing fresh blood to flow through the chambers of heart. Each valve is supposed to close completely after ushering in blood flow. Diseased heart valves aren’t always able to perform the job as well as they should.

Stenosis, or a narrowing of the blood vessels, causes a less-than-normal amount of blood to flow to the heart. This causes the muscle to work harder. Leaky valves can also pose a problem. Instead of closing tightly, a valve may remain slightly open, letting blood flow backwards. This is called regurgitation. The signs of valvular heart disease can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Fluid retention, especially in the lower limbs

Heart valve repair is also a solution for valvular heart disease. In some people, the damage is too far advanced and a total replacement of the affected valve is the only option.

Why is a valve replacement surgery done?

 

Why is a valve replacement surgery done?

Mechanical and biologic valves are used to replace faulty valves. Mechanical valves are artificial components that have the same purpose as a natural heart valve. They’re created from carbon and polyester materials that the human body tolerates well. They can last between 10 and 20 years. However, one of the risks associated with mechanical valves is blood clots. If someone receives a mechanical heart valve, he or she will need to take blood thinners for rest of the life to reduce the risk of stroke.

Biologic valves, also called bioprosthetic valves, are created from human or animal tissue. There are three types of biologic heart valves:

  • An Allograft or homograft is made of tissue taken from a human donor’s heart.
  • A porcine valve is made from pig tissue. This valve can be implanted with or without a frame called a stent.
  • A bovine valve is made from cow tissue. It connects to your heart with silicone rubber.

Biologic valves don’t increase the risk of developing blood clots. This means most likely it won’t need to commit to a lifetime of anti-clotting medication. A bioprosthetic doesn’t last as long as a mechanical valve and may require replacement at a future date.

The doctor recommends the type of heart valve the patient needs, based on:

  • Age
  • Overall health
  • Ability to take anticoagulant medications
  • The extent of the disease
 

What are the symptoms of heart valve disease?

Symptoms can include unusual tiredness or fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pain during exertion, passing out, dizziness, irregular heartbeat and swelling of the ankles, feet and sometimes the abdomen. Over time, heart valve disease can cause heart failure.

How is double valve replacement surgery done ? 

Heart valve replacement surgery is performed under general anesthesia with techniques that are either conventional or minimally invasive.

  • Conventional surgery requires a large incision from the neck to the navel. For minimally invasive surgery, the length of the incision is shorter which reduces the risk of infection.
  • For a surgeon to successfully remove the diseased valve and replace it with a new one, the heart has to stop beating temporarily.
  • The patient is placed on a bypass machine that keeps blood circulating through the body and keeps the lungs functioning during surgery.
  • The surgeon makes incisions into the aorta, through which the valves are removed and replaced.

The majority of heart valve replacement recipients remain in the hospital for approximately five to seven days. If the surgery is minimally invasive, the patient is released earlier.

Follow-up appointments are important and help the doctor to determine readiness to resume everyday activities. Post surgical support at home is advised.
