What is feasible, double valve replacement versus single valve replacement or other valve repair?

The video will discuss about double valve replacement versus single valve replacement or other valve repairs by Dr. K K Aggarwal, President Heart Care Foundation of India and Group Editor in Chief MEDtalks. In any patient if two valves are damaged, then feasibility is checked to repair one valve and replace the other. In every case of rheumatic heart disease or mitral stenosis, refer the patient to a surgeon to evaluate first because single valve replacement is always better than double valve replacement.
