HISTORICAL CASE OF TVR
A patient who was operated for the highest risk Euro-score of over 50 percent one year ago by Dr HS Pannu was presented to be in a hale and heart condition by the Heart Surgeon in a press meet. She was suffering from chronic Rheumatic multiple Valvular Heart Disease( of 3 out of 4 heart valves).


This patient was refused surgery at several centres and had presented in a situation known as Cardiac Cachexia before operation. She was unable to lie down straight due to severe breathlessness,  swelling due to fluid collection in her abdomen liver and both legs on account of  failed heart,.  Due to previous cardiac surgery 25 years ago she carried an unacceptable risk of 40 -50 percent as her heart occupied nearly 80 percent of her chest compressing the lungs.

 

She underwent an operation lasting 13 hours utilising advanced techniques to preserve the diseased heart valves and muscles.   She underwent replacement of all three heart valves with artificial metallic prosthesis. Her recovery was complete in 14 days. She remains on follow up and leads a healthy lifestyle and is able to carry out most chores as a house wife and sleeps comfortably with maintenece medications for her valves and heart in a normally functional state. This is rarest of the rare feats ever reported in India with a follow-up of well being in one year. Only about a dozen hospitals have reported the rare feat of this kind of complex Tripple valve replacment procedure in the history of Medicine.
