“We performed this advanced procedure – Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) in Mysuru on four patients in a single day and implanted valves. This is done without any surgery and the valve is implanted by inserting a catheter into the blood vessel. After this procedure, the patient is able to walk within a day unlike surgery which requires a minimum of two to four weeks of recovery. Even the time spent on each procedure is less than that of surgery,” he said.
“TAVI procedure costs around Rs 16 Lakh at Jayadeva Hospital while it is higher at private hospitals. Aortic valve replacement surgery would cost around Rs 2.5 lakh. We will recommend surgical procedures for fit patients and offer advanced facilities for those who are not.
Jayadeva performed the operation for free for one patient and for two others at a subsidized cost. The fourth patient had insurance coverage, said Doctor Sadananda.
