A little about Ashish heart condition
Valve repair can usually be done on congenital valve defects (defects you are born with) and has a good success record with treating mitral valve defects.
Here are some procedures surgeons may use to repair a valve:
Commissurotomy is used for narrowed valves, where the leaflets are thickened and perhaps stuck together. The surgeon opens the valve by cutting the points where the leaflets meet.
Valvuloplasty strengthens the leaflets to provide more support and to let the valve close tightly. This support comes from a ring-like device that surgeons attach around the outside of the valve opening.
Reshaping is done when the surgeon cuts out a section of a leaflet. Once the leaflet is sewn back together, the valve can close properly.
Decalcification removes calcium buildup from the leaflets. Once the calcium is removed, the leaflets can close properly.
Repair of structural support replaces or shortens the cords that give the valves support (these cords are called the chordae tendineae and the papillary muscles). When the cords are the right length, the valve can close properly.
Patching covers holes or tears in the leaflets with a tissue patch.
