In this video, Dr. Smita Mishra, Paediatric Cardiologist, Associate Director - Jaypee Hospital, will explain postoperative management after valve replacement. If the valve is leaking, then ballooning is not a good option. In such cases, mostly valve replacement is advised. The valve replaced can be mechanical or tissue made. In case of tissue made valve, blood thinners are required for three months and in mechanical prosthesis, lifelong blood thinners are required.
