Not many days have passed when it was revealed that a development has been done in which an artificial heart valve has been developed, which can be inserted without undergoing the surgery. Now, an addition has been done to the news and that is 11 women have undergone the procedure, and has thanked the procedure makers for saving their lives.
Surgeries were being conducted at Monash Medical Centre, and 11 women, who were too weak to go under knives, had chosen the option. The procedure is not at all complicated as a small hole is made and the artificial valve is being fitted in the groin.
The trial is said to be getting thumbs up from volunteers as well as from the study researchers. It is said that the treatment will help a lot many people to save their lives. Professor Ian Meredith, who is heading the Monash Heart, was of the view the treatment is especially beneficial for people suffering from aortic stenosis.
"When you have severe aortic valve narrowing and you become breathless as a consequence of that, more than half the people won't survive 12 months", said Professor Meredith. He further affirmed that in that scenario the current procedure works well.
