【India's Largest News Agency Reported that Venus Medtech Made Breakthrough in Less-invasive Heart Valve Implantation on Elderly】
On November 30th(local time), a transcathether aortic valve replacement (TAVR) was performed on a 75-year-old female patient along with angioplasty with stenting of the main artery in the same sitting at a  hospital in Delhi, India. The whole operation only takes 45 minutes and the key to success lies in the latest new generation of Venibri transcathether aortic valve system developed by Venus Medtech. 
The report quotes Dr. P Lal, chairman of Metro Group of hospitals which have the most authoritative cardiology in India, that aortic stenosis is a common disease among people over 60 years of age and about one in eight may have moderate or severe aortic stenosis. However, most elderly patients cannot be treated because of the risk of open-heart surgery and postoperative complications.
The 75-year-old female patient in the operation surgery had a past history of hypertension for 15 years, hypothyroidism for 10 years, COPD (bad lung), and severe osteoarthritis of both knees. Suffering from the pains caused by aortic stenosis for years, she has been unable to get treatment via an open-heart surgery because of her physical condition and high surgical fees. The transcathether aortic valve implantation operation was performed with local anesthesia, using femoral artery puncture as the operative approach in the environment of radiography. Venus Medtech’s Venibri26mm self-expandable transcathether aortic valve system was also used to conduct angioplasty and valve implantation.
Venibri Valve is the first catheter aortic valve product in the world that is pre-loaded with “dry tissue”. Venibri speaks for the world's most advanced technology of “pre-loading” and “dry tissue”. It completes the loading of valve into the delivery system during manufacturing process. Thus in operation room, the product can be used immediately after taking out, not only bringing very convenience for doctors, but also minimizing patients’ waiting time and reducing the risk of infection. What’s more, without the traditional glutaraldehyde treatment of the valve, the calcification resistance ability of the valve is greatly improved and life extended. Following the world first successful implantation of Venibri Valve in Argentina, the second successful implantation in India states that the global transcatheter heart valve technology has entered a new stage of development.
At the end, the report quotes the patient’s own words about the operation. She said that after years of pains and impossibility to undergo an open heart surgery due to her age and physical conditions, this less-invasive operation with minimal complications rekindled her desire for living. Three weeks after operation, she recovered very well and was in a good condition. In the future, this technology will be used in more operations and benefit more patients.

Noida, Nov 30 (PTI) Doctors at a city hospital performed a non-surgical procedure for heart, transcathether aortic valve replacement (TAVR), on a 76-year-old woman in less than 45 minutes along with angioplasty with stenting of the main artery in the same sitting.
Aortic stenosis is the narrowing of the aortic valve of the heart which restricts the blood flow to the whole body. It is one of the most common and most serious valve disease, doctors said.
Patients usually complained breathlessness, chest pain, fainting etc. It mainly affects older people due to scarring and calcium built up and usually starts after the age of 60 years but does not shows symptoms until age of 70 or 80, informed Dr P Lal, Chairman, Metro Group of hospitals.
“About one in eight people over the age of 75 years may have moderate or severe aortic stenosis,” he said.
In clinical practice, atleast 30 per cent of the patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis do not undergo surgery for replacement aortic valve, owing to advanced age or presence of multiple co-existing conditions.
The patient had a past history of hypertension since 15 years, hypothyroidism since 10 years, COPD (bad lung), severe osteoarthritis of both knees. She has been complaining of difficulty in breathing and chest pain and has been hospitalised many times.
“Her coronary angiography revealed critical block of its main artery. Neither the patient was fit for surgery nor was the family ready for open heart surgery at any cost.
“Thus, the procedure was done under local anaesthesia from the groin area like any other angiography procedure.
Initially angioplasty with stenting of the main artery was performed followed by 26 mm size pre-crimped self expandable valve,” said Lal.
“Now the patient has come for three weeks follow-up and is doing well. This particular procedure of combination of innovative pre-crimped self expandable, ready to use valve Replacement along with angioplasty with stenting of the main artery makes this the first procedure of its kind in the world,” he added.
The surgery took place on November 9 at Metro hospitals and Heart Institute.
“It was difficult and scary time for me as my health was deteriorating each passing day and there was no option but to live with it. I was not fit to have the open heart surgery due to my age and other health problems. But my hopes were rekindled when I learned about the possibility of having the procedure without the surgery and minimal complications involved,” said the patient after the surgery.
