Heart Surgery: Minimally Invasive Aortic Valve Replacement

Fifteen percent of the population will need a new heart valve–either from age or congenital disease. Cardio Thoracic & Vascular Surgical Associates bring heart patients a new option in valve replacement. Current methods require a breaking of the breastplate; the CTVSA surgeon enters through the ribs to remove the damaged valve and suture in the new valve.The Mini-AVR is much less invasive than traditional open heart, the patient's recovery is much easier, there's less blood loss, shorter hospital stays (financial impact), smaller scar–without compromising quality, outcome or patient care.-This option helps patients leave the hospital in 2-3 days (vs. 1 week), and return to full activity in 1-2 weeks (vs. 12 with traditional open heart). Without compromising traditional surgical protocol, CTVSA's approach provides heart patients a low impact solution for valve replacement. This procedure was pioneered by Dr. Galloway at NYU. CTVSA specializes in minimally invasive approaches to heart surgery and Mini AVR is unique to CTVSA in the Midwest. This video presents the CTVSA/Dr. Galloway approach but was filmed under an Italian Doctor trained by Dr. Galloway. The procedure is the same.

  1. I’m 33 years old in the last 3 years I been in 2 open hearts surgery. .. is
    not a joke at all..

  2. These doctors are so impressive. Years of study, observation, lots of money
    and effort leads to this amount of skill. I realize how poorly educated I
    am when I think what it is to be a Doctor like this… 

    1. +ThePilot59 No. Doctors do the actual work. And their practices have
      evolved over the centuries to be more efficient. Either that, or God used
      to suck at healing. Looking at life expectancy over the years.

  3. I could never do this huge shout out to the people who actually take their
    time to do this. much respect

  4. This is exactly what my brother, soon to turn 64 this month, had just

    OAK, MI……..
