Prof.Dr. Ranjan Shetty addressing the media.
EASY WITH NEEDLE PRICK METHOD - A BOON FOR GERIATRIC
PATIENTS.

The aortic valve usually opens when blood is pumped from the heart to the rest
of the body.In aortic stenosis,the valve cannot open & close properly.This results
in extra pressure on the heart & leads to  breathlessness,swollen ankles,chest pain
dizziness & blackouts.

Aortic Stenosis affects 2% of the adults over 65 years 12.4% for those above the age of 
75 & known to increase with age.  Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)
is preferred when it comes to treating patients aged above 60 -70 years.It is a minimally
invasive procedure without open heart surgery & without surgical removal of the
diseased valve says,Prof.Dr. Ranjan Shetty,Senior Interventional Cardiologist,
Manipal Hospitals,Bengaluru.

Patients who undergo a minimally invasive TAVR procedure will have faster recovery
and often a shorter hospital stay i.e 3 to 5 days.
