The doctor immediately advised for ECHO test(An echocardiogram test looks for irregularities in the heart’s structure using an ultrasound). This test revealed that his heart was bigger than normal for which it was difficult for the heart to compress and pump blood, resulting in palpitation, chest pain & severe breathing difficulties. These heart symptoms of heart defect required urgent surgery and were referred to JP CTVS Surgeon Dr.Javid V Sadique,   who advised dual valve replacement(DVR)  surgery.

The patient’s family imposed faith on JP doctors and immediately admitted the patient under Dr.Javid V Sadique for undergoing dual valve replacement(DVR) surgery. The surgery was successfully performed by Senior CTVS Surgeon Dr. Javid V Sadique, assisted by Dr.Sathish Kumar, JP Consultant CTVS Surgeon. The double valve replacement, which lasted for almost four and a half hours, is a replacement of both the mitral and the aortic valve, or the entire left side of the heart. This type of surgery is not as common as the other surgeries. Now, this young boy is recovering well and has been discharged. It is to be noted that JP Cardiac Science Department has been performing many life-saving cardiac surgeries like open-heart surgery; bypass surgery; valve-replacement surgery, angioplasty, etc. Any type of cardiac patient can get treatment here.
