Balloon Valvuloplasty

Balloon Valvuloplasty is a procedure in which the narrowed heart valve is stretched open without need for open heart surgery. It is also primarily used to treat pulmonary valve stenosis or mitral valve stenosiswhen other medical treatment has not corrected or relieved the related problems.
Balloon valvuloplasty is a procedure in which the narrowed heart valve is stretched open without open-heart surgery.

During this procedure-

  • A small incision is made in the skin and a catheter is inserted into an artery or vein in the leg using a local anesthetic and conscious sedation (relaxing medications).
  • A balloon-tipped catheter is advanced into the heart and across the narrowed valve.
  • When in place, the balloon is expanded to open the valve, resulting in improved blood flow across the diseased valve.

While individual circumstances vary, patients may be discharged as soon as the following day.
