Apollo Hospitals, Chennai has successfully implanted the first and the world’s largest Artificial Pulmonary Valve without surgery on a 61-year-old patient.

Date: 5 Nov 20

Doctors at Apollo Hospitals, Chennai successfully implanted the first and the world’s largest Pulmonary Valve (32mm) without surgery on a 61-year-old patient on 15th September 2020. The patient had undergone a total surgical correction in 1981 for a condition called Tetralogy of Fallot. This is a condition caused by a combination of four heart defects that are present at birth (congenital). These defects, which affect the structure of the heart, cause oxygen-poor blood to flow out of the heart and to the rest of the body. The patient was doing fine, until the Pulmonary valve (the valve to the lung) developed leak gradually.
