Fortis Healthcare India Ltd : India's First Successful Percutaneous TAVI Performed At Fortis Escorts

03/15/2012 | 07:35am EDT
India's first successful Percutaneous TAVI performed at Fortis Escorts Cardiac surgeons team led by Dr. Ashok Seth New Delhi, February 29, 2011: India's first successful Percutaneous Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI), a non-surgical, without cardiopulmonary bypass, Cath Lab based heart valve replacement procedure was performed by a team of doctors led by Dr. Ashok Seth, Chairman - Cardiac Sciences, Fortis Escorts Heart Institute. The doctors at Fortis Escorts have performed this path-breaking and revolutionary procedure on three elderly patients, over 70 year old, with severe calcified Aortic stenosis.

All three patients had severe breathlessness and heart failure, which could have been fatal. They were high- risk patients for Valve Replacement Surgery as two of them had already undergone bypass surgery and all were getting on in years. The valve implantation was performed in the Cath Lab. Each procedure took approximately two hours and was conducted through the groin in an angioplasty-like procedure, without opening the chest or putting the patient on bypass.
Dr Ashok Seth has been involved in the early stage of development of the catheter-based valve replacement procedure and performed one of the first cases in the world in 2004. While briefing the media, Dr. Ashok Seth, Chairman - Cardiac sciences, Fortis Escorts Heart institute said, "It is yet another first from the hospital which is known to undertake state-of-the-art procedures, in an effort to bring the latest and finest in healthcare treatments for patients. With this non-surgical procedure, patients who suffer from calcified aortic stenosis, which specifically increases with age, will benefit. Surgical procedures for these patients can pose a high risk, because of age and other factors."
TAVI is an alternative to open heart surgery and is considered a better alternate since it is a minimally invasive procedure. This heart surgery can be performed using echocardiographic and fluoroscopic guidance for visualization during implantation. The valve is positioned and deployed across the patient's diseased aortic valve. The patient can be discharged soon after the surgery, unlike in a bypass surgery. The patient also does not need to be on heavy medication and can resume a perfectly healthy life with the help of basic medication, regular check-ups and a proper diet.
