KMCT Medical College Hospital transplanted heart valve using the cutting-edge treatment method TAVI.
TAVI was done on an eight two year old woman, who was suffering from Aortic valve stenosis disease. Using TAVI, KMCT Medical College hospital doctors transplanted the heart valve through veins, without opening chest and heart of the patient.
In Malabar area, KMCT hospital is the only hospital providing TAVI at an affordable rate. It is not the first time KMCT hospital achieving this distinction.
“TAVI Technology is used in patients who are not fit for an open surgery”, said Dr Sandeep. Dr Prashanth, Dr Bijoy, Dr Vijeesh, and nurses also participated in TAVI. The patient is fast returning to the normal life.
