Heart valve replacement in India at Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai can repair your diseased heart valves with most sought medical facilities. Indian cardiac surgery hospitals are providing medically safe heart valve replacement in India. Heart valve replacement is done to repair or replace the mitral or aortic valves. These valves are on the left side of the heart, which works harder than the right. They control the flow of oxygen-rich blood from the lungs to the rest of the body. Heart valve replacement is done to treat valvular heart disease. When heart valves become damaged or diseased, they may not function properly. Conditions which may cause heart valve dysfunction are valvular stenosis and valvular insufficiency (regurgitation). Heart valve replacement of heart valves involves open-heart surgery, which means that the chest is opened in the operating room and the heart is stopped for a time so that the surgeon may repair or replace the valve(s). In order to open the chest, the breastbone, or sternum, is cut in half and spread apart. The bypass machine is used to pump blood because the heart is stopped and kept still while the surgeon performs the procedure of heart valve replacement. Cardiac surgeons in India at Mumbai, Hyderabad and Bangalore are providing good medical facilities for cardiac procedures like heart valve replacement. Indian medical tourism is assisting well to get patients a successful and less price heart valve replacement in India to cure damaged heart valves.

Arizona Heart Institute pioneers research that may offer new hope to heart failure patients.
Nationally, over 3,000 people are waiting for a heart transplant – and a new lease on life. Sadly, only half of those will receive a transplant. Now, pioneering research at Arizona Heart Institute (AHI) is paving the way for how to treat congestive heart failure (CHF) patients.
Called MyoCell® Muscle Stem Cell Therapy, the unique transplant procedure actually uses skeletal muscle stem cells (myoblasts) from the patient’s own body that are injected into the heart. This may create new functioning heart muscle.
Arizona Heart Institute has extensive knowledge in this area, having already completed two myoblast transplantation research studies in patients suffering from congestive heart failure (CHF), the first in 2002 involving the direct injection of myoblast cells into the heart during open heart surgery, and in 2004, the nation’s first delivery of myoblast cells using a minimally invasive, catheter-based approach.

During a percutaneous procedure, a catheter or tube is threaded through the skin in the groin, and into a vein to the left atrium of the heart. Here, just above the valve, a clip is used to close the mitral valve using the edge-to-edge technique. The chest is never opened during this procedure.
A small delivery catheter which holds the clip is threaded through the tube all the way to the left atrium, and placed at the area where the leak originates. Once in position, the clip is then retracted to grasp and close on the valve leaflets. When the clip is closed, it brings the two leaflets together to seal the leak, thereby reducing MR. Unlike most open-heart surgeries, this procedure is performed without the need to stop the heart, and recovery time is only about two days.
