Geetanjali Hospital's Successful Treatment of High-Risk Cardiac Patient Through Innovative TMVR Procedure

Geetanjali Medical College and Hospital in Udaipur achieved a medical breakthrough by successfully treating a 64-year-old cardiac patient from Jaisalmer with a high-risk condition. Despite being turned away by several renowned hospitals, Geetanjali Hospital utilized a rare Transcatheter Mitral Valve Replacement (TMVR) procedure, providing the patient with a new lease on life.
The cardiac team at Geetanjali Hospital, led by Dr. Ramesh Patel, Dr. Dilip Jain, Dr. Jay Bharat, Dr. Gaurav Mittal, Dr. Sanjay Gandhi, Dr. Gurpreet Singh, Dr. Anubhav Bansal, Dr. Ayush Richariya, and anesthesiologist Dr. Anil Bhimal, collaborated to successfully perform the TMVR procedure on the patient.
Detailed Information:
The 64-year-old patient, a resident of Jaisalmer, had a history of diabetes and underwent angioplasty and mitral valve repair surgery in Ahmedabad in 2016. After experiencing weakness and heart function issues for almost a month following the surgery, the patient was admitted to the ICU. Subsequently, she faced leakage issues in the valve over the past six months, causing symptoms such as breathlessness and nocturnal suffocation.
Upon referral to Geetanjali Hospital, the patient underwent a thorough examination, revealing that the previously operated valve was experiencing leakage again. The medical team presented two options: open-heart surgery or the innovative TMVR procedure, a non-invasive alternative. Considering the patient's history of high-risk surgery and her family's preference to avoid open-heart surgery, TMVR was recommended.
Dr. Sanjay Gandhi explained that the patient faced challenges due to the rigid nature of the previously repaired ring, making TMVR a complex procedure. The Geetanjali cardiac sciences team successfully addressed this issue by initially using a balloon to open the rigid ring and then reshaping it to match the valve. The valve was then implanted without the need for open-heart surgery, preserving the patient's overall cardiac health.
TMVR procedures are rare in India, and their success requires the expertise of a highly skilled and experienced team, often found in quaternary care centers. Geetanjali Hospital's achievement not only reflects local pride but also showcases the hospital's commitment to delivering advanced and world-class healthcare services.
Geetanjali Hospital has been consistently providing exceptional medical facilities for the past 17 years, catering to various healthcare needs and offering services to those in need.
