Neotia Getwel Multispecialty Hospital set another milestone in cardio Thoracic Vascular Surgery (CTVS) for the first time in North Bengal under the experienced hand of Dr. Rajeev Trehan, Senior Consultant- CTVS. A young female, resident of Sikkim was suffering from breathlessness for last one year & consulted Dr. Trehan. She was evaluated and found to have a leakage of heart valve (Aortic Valve) with huge dilatation of main artery (aorta) which carries blood from heart. The patient was admitted under Dr. Trehan on 19th April, 2023. It was found that the patient was actually suffered from Marfan syndrome 2 thus was recommended BENTALL SURGERY wherein doctors replaced the heart valve (AV) along with main artery which carries blood from heart.
Initially due to her fear for surgery, she refused to undergo the procedure. Gradually, her other valve of heart also started leaking (MITRAL VALVE). As stated by the legendary Nelson Mandela, “The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear”, she defeated her fear and underwent Bentall Surgery with Mitral Valve Replacement.
Bentall Surgery is a high risk surgery where doctors replace the leaking heart valve as well as the main artery which carries blood from heart with artificial tube and on that tube we Re-Implant the blood vessels which supply the heart. After the successful surgery, the patient was thereafter shifted to CICU and discharged on 04th May, 2023 with a stable condition.
