Open heart surgery : The surgeon, with anesthesia and adequate monitoring, will open your chest and use a machine that will oxygenate your body and pump it back to your body. Your heart will be resting while surgeon replace or repair your valve. The machine will act as your heart. At the end the heart will restart its function slowly and take over the pump function. Machine out and if valve work well we finish.
