Balloon Mitral Valvotomy or BMV is the suggested treatment for mitral valve stenosis. It means the mitral valve becomes narrow leading to forward blood flow from your left atrium to the heart’s left ventricle. Due to the restricted flow, the blood tends to accumulate in the lungs. This condition can also result in fluid buildup. This disease usually develops in people who have suffered from rheumatic fever. As a result of the fever, your mitral valve becomes inflamed. Over time, the inflamed valve’s leaflet sticks together. This causes scarring and the valve becomes thickened and rigid. Ultimately, it limits the valve’s ability to open properly.
Pulmonary valve stenosis is another heart disease requiring intervention from a skilled cardiac surgeon. When you develop the condition, you can suffer from deformity near or on the pulmonary valve. It results in the narrowing of the pulmonary valve opening. So, it slows down the normal blood flow. The pulmonary valve is located between the right ventricle (the lower right chamber of your heart) and the pulmonary arteries. In older people, this condition develops due to complications triggered by other illnesses. But, in most cases, pulmonary valve stenosis is a congenital condition developing before birth.
At Medisky, the cardiologists diagnose heart problems like mitral valve stenosis. The cardia surgeon performs BMV, the non-surgical procedure to increase the opening of the stenotic (narrowed) valve. It is suggested when medications cannot cure the condition. Cardiac surgeons with experience and skill can also treat isolated pulmonary valvar stenosis by performing BPV (Balloon pulmonary valvotomy). With experts at your side, you can see long-term good results after undergoing the surgery. The surgeons ensure you undergo the procedure safely without suffering from complications.
