Why do hair fall to a open heart surgery patient with two volves replaced?

It's complicated. Hair loss can happen for a number of reasons, lots of them unrelated to surgery. However, the stress and trauma of surgery, as well as medications to treat heart problems or blood pressure, or anemia after surgery can contribute. You should see a doctor if you are concerned.
Telogen Effluvium. Hair loss by telogen effluvium happens when trauma of some kind adversely affects the body, and forces hair into the telogen stage. This hair will first start to thin, and then fall. It is common after surgery, to develop a telogen effluvium where the hair goes into a shedding phase. The telogen effluvium usually lasts for 6-12 months.
