LIVE TRANSMISSION ON VALVULOPLASTY TO USA FROM JAYADEVA INSTITUTE OF CARDIOVASCULAR SCIENCES AND RESEARCH
Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research successfully performed Balloon Mitral Valvuloplasty Procedure with Live Transmission for Complex Cardiovascular Therapeutic International Conference held at Orlando, USA.
Dr. C N Manjunath and his team conducted Valvuloplasty procedure on 23 years old female patient who was suffering from Rheumatic Mitral Stenosis. This lady has undergone first operation (surgical valvotomy) 12 years ago, which has narrowed to a critical extent with a bad anatomy. Elsewhere she was advised to undergo Open Heart Surgery for Valve Replacement. However this difficult case was taken for Balloon Valvuloplasty procedure and good result was achieved. She will be discharged within two days. According to Dr. C N Manjunath, all procedural details were discussed live with conference panelists and USA cardiologist at Orlando-Florida, USA. The transmission lasted for 40 minutes. Our Centre was chosen since we perform world’s highest number of Mitral Valvuloplasty procedures with high level of competence and expertise. This will also boost medical tourism for both learning and treatment aspects.
