Prof. Dr. İhsan Bakır made a statement about heart valve repair. Bakır said, “Repair is a difficult procedure for the surgeon. It needs to be done in experienced hands. It is actually difficult for us, but it is very comfortable for the patient after the surgery. Our patients do not have to use blood thinners. The drug has serious side effects. They are not exposed to them either. This is a special procedure we performed on this patient. Because we carried out the repair process using the heart membrane. At this time, the pericardium remains around the valve and ensures that the valve functions normally. The old inadequacy has been eliminated. Blood flow to the lungs also returned to normal. We performed this surgery with a robot for the first time in a public hospital. Normally, we performed the repair using the open method using the pericardium. "But this is the first time we have performed such a repair with a robot," he said.
Prof. Dr. İhsan Bakır stated that the patient's surgery was performed through several small incisions and said, “Currently, there is an incision on the left side under her breast of approximately 4 centimeters. There are also 4 separate small incisions of 1 centimeter each. There is also a 3-4 centimeter incision in the groin area. When our patient wears a swimsuit or an open-top outfit, no incision will be visible in the area where the faith board is located. If open surgery had been performed, it would have taken approximately 2 months for our patient to return to normal life. Since it would take a long time for the bone to heal, it would prevent our patient from his normal life. "Our patient will be able to quickly return to housework and even go home using his car," he said. Noting that they try to repair every heart valve they operate on with the robot, Bakır said, "The repair is a comfortable method for the patient. It is a method that should always be preferred by a surgeon. There is a saying: 'If the repair cannot be done, there is no problem in the repair, there are surgeons who cannot do it.' That's why they say change your surgeon. So much importance is given to repair in the world. If you are told to replace your valve, there should be a question mark in their minds. I am talking about the mitral valve. please head Let them ask another surgeon. "Our patients should consult the doctors who deal with the repair," he said.
