Balloon Valvuloplasty

Balloon Valvuloplasty is the name of the procedure used to open valves in the heart which are narrowed and therefore not functioning properly. The narrowing is usually a result of a birth defect and the procedure is commonly performed on children, adolescents and young adults diagnosed with this problem. The procedure is similar to angioplasty in that it uses an inflatable balloon guided through a catheter into the narrowed valve. The balloon is then inflated to open the valve and improve its functionality. This procedure is most commonly recommended as the procedure of choice for treating the narrowing of the pulmonary valve.
