Innovative Heart Care: Exploring TMVR with Dr. Srinivasa Prasad BV

Heart valve disease, particularly mitral valve regurgitation, presents serious health challenges if not properly managed. Traditionally, treatment options were limited to open-heart surgery, but medical advancements have introduced less invasive and highly effective alternatives. As an interventional cardiologist in Bangalore, I, Dr. Srinivasa Prasad BV, specialize in Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair (TMVR), offering patients a cutting-edge solution for managing mitral valve disease.

Understanding the TMVR?

TMVR, or Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair, is a minimally invasive procedure designed to treat mitral valve regurgitation. This condition occurs when the mitral valve does not close properly, causing blood to flow backward into the left atrium instead of moving forward into the left ventricle. TMVR offers a less invasive alternative to traditional surgery by utilizing a catheter-based approach.

Procedure Overview

Advantages of TMVR

TMVR offers numerous benefits over conventional surgical methods:

Minimally Invasive

Requires only small incisions, leading to reduced physical trauma and quicker recovery times.

Reduced Hospital Stay

Patients often experience shorter hospital stays and can return to their normal activities sooner.

Lower Risk

Particularly advantageous for patients who are at high risk for open-heart surgery due to age or other health conditions.

Improved Quality of Life

TMVR can significantly reduce symptoms such as shortness of breath, fatigue, and heart palpitations, leading to an improved quality of life.

Who Can Benefit from TMVR?

TMVR is recommended for patients with significant mitral valve regurgitation who are not ideal candidates for traditional surgery. This includes:

The Procedure What to Expect

The process of undergoing TMVR involves several critical steps to ensure optimal results:

Pre-Procedure Assessment

Comprehensive evaluations, including imaging and diagnostic tests, to determine the patient’s suitability for TMVR.

Procedure Day

Performed in a specialized catheterization laboratory, usually under local or general anesthesia.

Post-Procedure Care

Close monitoring in a recovery unit, with most patients being discharged within a few days. Follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor recovery and valve function.
