Aortic Valve Bypass Surgery

 

Aortic valve bypass surgery provides an alternative treatment option to traditional aortic valve replacement for patients who are at a high risk of developing aortic valve stenosis. For these patients, aortic valve bypass surgery offers many advantages that can help them avoid both stroke and cardiac arrest during the procedure.

In this video, the Maryland Heart Center's Dr. James Gammie narrates the steps of aortic valve bypass surgery as it is performed on an 83 year old male patient.
