  n the heart of the human body there is a "valve" called the aortic valve. Once it is broken, it must be "for the door". However, in the past, this type of treatment required open-heart surgery and was very risky. However, in recent days, experts at the Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital only spent 2 hours, a small 3 cm mouth on the patient's chest, through the catheter to release the artificial valve, to complete the valve replacement surgery.
  Ni-year-old 77-year-old grandmother repeatedly chest tightness, shortness of breath, dizziness, for many years, recently she even fainted, and for this family step did not dare to leave her. Ni said, "I can’t live without my wife. He always grabs my hand. I have to go to the toilet and take a bath. If I don't follow it, I'm afraid to faint."

  After a hospital inspection, Ni was found to be suffering from severe aortic valve stenosis with insufficiency, requiring a split sternum, extracorporeal circulation, and subsequent cardiac arrest, cutting off the broken valve and replacing it with a new one. However, Ni's grandmother's aortic wall has been calcified and is as hard and brittle as a tile. Wang Dongjin, director of cardiothoracic surgery at Nanjing Drum Tower Hospital, told reporters: “When the aortic wall is broken, the aortic wall cannot be clamped. This is the most difficult problem for conventional heart surgery. We cannot do conventional heart surgery.

  Fortunately, the Department of Cardiology and Thoracic Surgery of Drum Tower Hospital Wang Dongjin team used the new technique of apical aortic valve implantation to solve this problem for her. The doctor only cut a 3 cm hole in her chest, exposed the heart, and passed the catheter to the heart. Precise release of the prosthetic valve, attached to the aortic valve, and the surgery is complete.
  Wang Dongjin said: “We don’t need a long period of general anesthesia for a short period of time. We don’t need extracorporeal circulation, we don’t need to open other parts of the heart, and only cut a small mouth with a pointed tip. It can quickly recover and woke up. The tracheal intubation can be removed, the disease treatment process is greatly shortened, and complications are reduced."

  In addition, Drum Tower Hospital’s Wang Dongjin team used this new technology to replace the aortic valve in another 83-year-old man. It is understood that valvular heart disease has become the third largest cardiac disease, the use of new techniques for apical aortic valve implantation, in the future can not afford the traditional high-risk patients with thoracotomy, can change the valve in this way.
