3D Minimally Invasive Heart Valve Surgery

Valvular heart disease is a common heart condition caused by malfunctioning heart valves. There are 4 valves in the heart that function to keep blood moving in one direction. Valvular Heart Disease is a serious condition that causes the heart to work harder. If left untreated Valvular Heart Disease can lead to Congestive Heart Failure, Cardiomyopathy, and even death. Many patients with Valvular Heart Disease can successfully control their symptoms with medications, however medications cannot cure diseased or abnormal heart valves. Heart valve surgery may be an option for these patients. Traditionally the surgery has been performed through a long chest incision with the breastbone or sternum split and ribs spread apart. Minimally invasive techniques for repairing or replacing diseased or abnormal valves have been developed that require a much smaller incision with partial or no splitting of the breastbone.

Your Practice Online's 3D video of Minimally Invasive Heart Valve Surgery presented here is an excellent way for physicians and surgeons to educate their patients. Patients are instructed on all aspects of Valvular Heart Disease in an interactive format using text, voice, images, and 3D animations to further their understanding of their own condition. The interactive format of the video enables patients to move forward or backward in the presentation to review material at their leisure. Patients are instructed on normal heart anatomy, risk factors and various triggers of Valvular Heart Disease, as well as the medical tests used to diagnose the disease. Conservative treatment options are discussed as well as surgical intervention for patients who do not respond to medications and lifestyle changes.
