Chirurgie valvulaire

A heart transplant is a surgical procedure used to treat the most serious cases of heart disease. This is a treatment option for people who are in the end stages of heart failure. Medication, lifestyle changes, and less invasive procedures haven’t succeeded. People must meet specific criteria to be considered a candidate for the procedure.

 

Qu’est ce que c’est que la Chirurgie valvulaire?

Lorsqu’une valve cardiaque ne fonctionne pas normalement, c’est tout le cœur qui ne peut pas fonctionner comme il le devrait. En fonction de votre pathologie, la valve cardiaque peut être réparée ou remplacée.

L’une des options thérapeutiques pour la valvulopathie peut être l’implantation d’un petit anneau pour redonner sa forme et sa fonction à la valve ou bien votre médecin peut décider de remplacer la valve par une valve artificielle.

What’s the procedure?

Heart transplant surgery lasts for approximately four hours. During that time, you’ll be placed on a heart-lung machine to keep blood circulating throughout your body.

Your surgeon will remove your heart, leaving the pulmonary vein openings and the back wall of the left atrium intact. They’ll do this to prepare you to receive the new heart.

Once your doctor stitches the donor heart into place and the heart begins beating, you’ll be removed from the heart-lung machine. In most cases, the new heart will begin to beat as soon as blood flow is restored to it. Sometimes an electric shock is required to prompt a heartbeat.

What’s recovery like?

After your surgery is finished, you’ll be taken to the intensive care unit (ICU). You’ll be constantly monitored, given pain medication, and outfitted with drainage tubes to remove excess fluid from your chest cavity.

After the first day or two after the procedure, you’ll most likely be moved from the ICU. However, you’ll remain in the hospital as you continue to heal. Hospital stays range from one to three weeks, based on your individual rate of recovery.

You’ll be monitored for infection, and your medication management will begin. Antirejection medications are crucial to ensure that your body doesn’t reject your donor organ. You may be referred to a cardiac rehabilitation unit or center to help you adjust to your new life as a transplant recipient

Recovery from a heart transplant can be a long process. For many people, a full recovery can span up to six months.
