Single Bypass and Valve Replacement surgery is performed to treat heart valve disease and improve blood flow to your heart.
The surgeon will use blood vessels taken from another area of your body to bypass the damaged arteries and simultaneously repair or replace your damaged valves.
The procedure is done when the coronary arteries become damaged and is coupled with at least one of the heart valves disrupting blood flow through your body.
Many surgical approaches can be used to repair heart valves, including open-heart surgery or minimally invasive heart surgery.
As with any open-heart surgery, this procedure also carries risks. However, recent technological advancements have improved the procedure, increasing the chances of successful surgery.
The surgery can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours or more. It depends on the number of valves that need to be repaired or replaced.
The cost of Single Bypass and Valve Replacement in India is upwards of USD 3,982.
