Dr. Nitin Tiwari, Sr. Interventional Cardiologist- Wockhardt Hospital, Nagpur has recently performed the first-ever Balloon Tricuspid Valvuloplasty on a patient with Eisenmenger syndrome in Central India. This is the first such case reported till now. The procedure- BTV was performed on a 52-year-old woman who had arrived in the emergency department of the hospital.

At the arrival, she had complaints of shortness of breath, abdominal distension, swelling all over the body, and was discolored blue on lips, fingers, eyes. Even her skin had a bluish tinge. Immediately, her 2D-Echo was performed in which she was diagnosed to have Eisenmenger syndrome with Tricuspid Stenosis. Tricuspid stenosis is the choking of right-sided inflow of the heart due to which there is swelling all over the body, breathlessness, and abdominal distension.

The patient had to undergo a procedure called Balloon Tricuspid Valvuloplasty in which a small puncture is made in the groin. The balloon is then passed across the choked tricuspid valve and is inflated so that the choked valve gets opened. This decreases the pressure in the heart immediately. The team also included Dr. Sameet Pathak, Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeon, and Dr. Pankaj Jain Chaudhary, Anesthetist.
