Aorta is the major artery of the heart that is responsible for the transfer of oxygen-rich blood from the left ventricle of the heart to different parts of the body. Aortic surgery is an invasive procedure to repair an aortic aneurysm (an enlarged aorta) and to treat aortic valve diseases including aortic stenosis (the narrowing of the aortic valve, thereby limiting the blood flow) and aortic valve regurgitation (not proper closure of the aortic valve leading to backflow of the blood into left heart chamber). The damaged or diseased aortic valve may be surgically replaced by open heart surgery or minimally-invasive procedure using a mechanical valve, human donated valve, or biological valve. Surgical repair is also needed for holes or tears on the valve leaflets using tissue patches. To know more about Aortic Surgery in Delhi, meet the best heart specialist, Dr. Sujay Shad.
