Balloon Valvatomy

The Balloon Valvotomy helps the doctors in treating the symptoms of valve diseases of the patient. The Balloon Valvotomy takes place under our expert medical supervision. Firstly, it involves the opening of a narrowed heart valve. This balloon valvotomy can be performed on different heart valves including aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valves.

Our cardiologists and specialized nurses perform Balloon Valvotomy with medical devices. The procedure of Balloon Valvotomy involves the insertion of the catheter tube in the arm or groin region. Through blood vessels, the tube is then guided to the heart chamber. But before that, our cardiologist performs a tiny incision between the upper heart chambers. This incision also helps the cardiologists in identifying the left atrium of the heart.

Once the positioning of the catheter takes place, our cardiologists inflate and deflate the balloon several times. The above step opens up the heart valve which is much needed since it is the reason for several blockages. Once it gets opened, our cardiologists deflate the balloon and remove it accordingly.
