Best MICS Heart Valve,
Surgeon In Jaipur
A Heart has four Valves; the mitral valve, tricuspid valve, pulmonary valve, and aortic valve. Each valve has flaps called leaflets These flaps open and closes once during each heartbeat. Sometimes the valves don’t open or close properly, disrupting the blood flow through your heart to your body.
Minimally invasive mitral valve repair surgery is performed through a small incision, often using specialized surgical instruments. The incision is 2- to 4-inches instead of the 6- to 8-inch incision required for traditional surgery. Robotically assisted keyhole approaches or port-access techniques are also available for some types of surgery.

What Makes Us the Best Choice for MICS Heart Valve Surgery
Manipal Hospitals’ heart surgeons alongside Dr. Aditya Malik have expertise with the full range of minimally invasive approaches for mitral valve repair, enabling us to offer individualized treatment for each patient. These minimally invasive valve procedures, which range from a 2- to 4-inch incision to fully endoscopic surgery, include:
The right mini-thoracotomy is performed with a 2- to 3-inch skin incision created in a skin fold on the right chest, providing an excellent cosmetic result.
The heart is approached between the ribs, providing the surgeon access to the mitral valve. There is no sternal incision or spreading of the ribs required for this surgical technique.
Partial Upper Sternotomy
A partial upper sternotomy includes a 2- to 3-inch skin incision and division of the upper portion of the sternum, providing the surgeon access to the mitral valve to perform the repair. In contrast, a traditional sternotomy requires an 8- to 10 -inch incision down the entire sternum.
Robotically-Assisted Mitral Valve Repair
Robotically assisted mitral valve surgery is a type of minimally invasive surgery in which the surgeon uses a specially-designed computer console to control surgical instruments on thin robotic arms.
Manipal Hospitals offers a full range of minimally invasive mitral valve surgery approaches.
Difference Between Traditional Open Heart Surgery and Minimal Invasive Heart Surgery
Why the Procedure is Performed
You may need surgery if your mitral valve does not work properly because:
- You have mitral regurgitation — When a mitral valve does not close all the way and allows blood to leak back into the left atria.
- You have mitral stenosis — When a mitral valve does not open fully and restricts blood flow.
- Your valve has developed an infection (infectious endocarditis).
- You have severe mitral valve prolapse that is not controlled with medicine.
Minimally invasive surgery may be done for these reasons:
- Changes in your mitral valve are causing major heart symptoms, such as shortness of breath, leg swelling, or heart failure.
- Tests show that the changes in your mitral valve are beginning to harm your heart function.
- Damage to your heart valve from infection (endocarditis).
A minimally invasive procedure has many benefits. There is less pain, blood loss, and risk of infection. You will also recover faster than you would from open-heart surgery. However, some people may not be able to have this type of procedure.
Percutaneous valvuloplasty can only be done in people who are too sick to have anesthesia. The results of this procedure are not long-lasting.
Precautions One Should Follow after MICS Heart Valve Surgery
we’re here to all your questions
Manipal Hospitals maintains its leadership position in cardiovascular medicine by providing high-quality patient care and the latest and best surgical options – including minimally invasive heart surgery.
What is MICS?
Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique performed through a small incision between the ribs, in which a graft is placed to bypass a blocked heart artery.
What is the advantage of MICS over traditional open-heart surgery?
The biggest difference with the MICS technique is how the surgeon approaches the heart. With traditional heart bypass surgery, a long cut is made through the breast bone to open the chest. With the MICS-CABG procedure the surgeon uses a much smaller incision between the ribs. Because it isn’t necessary to “crack open” the chest or cut through bone, MICS results in less pain, blood loss, risk for infection and scarring.
I have other health issues. Is MICS an option for me?
Possibly. Because MICS has a lower risk for infections and blood loss, it’s often a better option, especially for patients who have health issues such as diabetes or asthma. Your surgeon and cardiologist will determine if you’re a candidate for MICS.ir surgery.
