Mitral Valve Replacement Surgery in Bangladesh
An open mitral valve replacement is a procedure in which a faulty mitral valve is replaced with an artificial valve. The mitral valve is one of the four valves in the heart. It aids the flow of blood through the heart and out to the rest of the body. Between the left atrium and the left ventricle is the mitral valve. Your doctor will instal an artificial mitral valve to replace the one that isn’t functioning properly. This ensures that blood will circulate normally through the left ventricle and out to the body without placing additional strain on the heart. The procedure is called “open” since it exposes the heart from a typical larger incision. This is a wider incision than the one used in minimally invasive mitral valve replacement.
