The dilation/widening of a narrow cardiac valve usually performed on Mitral, Aortic or Pulmonary.
In a Valvuloplasty procedure, a small, narrow, hollow tube known as the catheter is performed to open a stenotic (stiff) heart valve and is advanced from a blood vessel in the groin through the aorta into the heart. Once the catheter is placed in the valve to be opened, contrast dye will be injected into the valve in order to look at the area, a large balloon at the tip of the catheter is inflated until the leaflets (flaps) of the valve are opened, then the balloon is deflated and the catheter is removed. The catheter insertion site may be closed with a closure device that uses collagen to seal the opening in the artery, by the use of sutures, or by applying manual pressure over the area to keep the blood vessel from bleeding. Once the bleeding has stopped, a very tight bandage will be placed on the site.
