To establish the supremacy of the healthcare practitioners at the Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), a team of cardiology experts from the hospital performed India’s first Transcatheter aortic Value Replacement surgery, on a patient who underwent a failed-valve surgery in the past.
The team comprising of Dr. R K Jain, Director & HoD of Cardiology at the KIMS and Dr. T N C Padmanabhan, Senior Interventional Cardiologist, along with other experts have successfully performed the surgical procedure on a 69-year-old female patient; who has recuperated swiftly and has resumed back to her daily life.
Patient, Ms. Geeta Agarwal is from Hingoli district of Maharashtra. Commenting on the intricacy of the surgery, Dr. R K Jain said, “The patient underwent an open-heart surgery in the past but had developed severe breathlessness and chest pain grossly limiting her daily activities. The patient had to be treated with utmost care as she had obesity and high blood pressure.
“On examining the patient’s condition, it was reported that she was suffering from severe blockage of an aortic valve. Redoing open heart surgery was laced with high risk, hence the team decided on the alternative method of replacing the diseased valve through groin vessel without the need for a high-risk open heart surgery.”
On May 19th, the patient underwent a surgical procedure with Meril My Val (Indian Valve), and since then she is doing well. This procedure is done for the first time in India and can surely be considered a promising advancement to address the patients’ facing high-risk surgeries.
