As the age of an individual increase, the valves in the heart thicken and become stiffer. This may pave way for a heart valve disease. Additionally, certain risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and history of rheumatic fever, heart attack, and infective endocarditis (IE) increases the risk of heart valve disease. On the other hand, some babies are born with two flaps in the aortic valve instead of three. This congenital disorder, along with heart valve disease, may warrant the need for heart valve replacement.
In aortic valve replacement and mitral valve replacement surgery, the concerned defected or damaged valve is replaced with a mechanical or a tissue valve. This restores the normal functioning of the valve.
Valve Replacement in Turkey is conducted by a team of highly experienced and skilled surgeons. Turkey is one of the leading medical tourism destinations in the world because it houses some of the best hospitals in the world. Additionally, the country is centrally located and can be accessed from any part of the world. This is the reason why many patients from abroad prefer to visit Turkey for valve replacement, among other cardiac procedures.
