The Aortic root is the linking site of the aorta (the artery leading away from the heart) with the heart. It consists of three distinct sections; the annulus (a hard, fibrous ring); the aortic valve and its leaflets; and the coronary ostia, space where the coronary arteries attach.
Any aneurysm, that is, an asymmetrical protuberance in the wall of the cardiac blood vessels, can also initiate at the root of the aorta. This outgrowth can inflate the aortic root, causing it to split the inner layer of the aorta and introduce blood flow in that area. The layers start to detach, the blood flow gets stalled and when the pressure crosses the elasticity threshold, the arterial wall can break. This fatal condition is called aneurysm dissection and requires to be treated with haste.
Essentially a surgical treatment to treat aneurysms in the aortic root, known as the Aortic Root Replacement procedure or the surgical Bentall procedure, is applied. In this technique, the ailing portion of the aortic root is surgically removed and a biological or mechanical valve is introduced which improves the functional error occurring due to the part which had the aneurysm.
The most modern medical and healthcare awareness has made Israel one of the preferred terminuses for patients to come from all over the world. With the cutting-edge medical system, the country is pegged as one of the few ends where the intricate Bentall procedure can be accomplished without any further difficulties. The availability of multi-specialty hospitals, especially in the field of cardiac sciences has further amplified Israel’s position as a country that can be depended upon for improved and professional-quality medical attention.
The country has many neuro and cardiac surgeons that are skilled in the field of open-heart surgeries for the correction of this particular cardiac defect. Hospitals like the Rabin Medical Center (Petah Tikva), Kaplan Medical Center (Rehovot), Sheba Medical Center (Tel Hashomer), and Sourasky Medical Center (Tel-Aviv) have specialized cardiology and neurology branches where procedures that are correlated to the heart are carried out. These and many other causes make Israel an essential country for getting a Bentall procedure done.
Even in a developed country like Singapore, it costs on average approximately $27000 for availing a Bentall procedure for a patient. But in Israel, you get the same international quality healthcare and successful procedures done for around 20% to 30% less of the treatment rate charged in Singapore and other developed countries.
