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 the 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:
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.
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 the 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:
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:
