Catheters, Cardiac, Valvuloplasty

Definition : Cardiac catheters designed for the percutaneous dilatation of a cardiac valve (i.e., atrioventricular, aortic, and pulmonary trunk valves). Valvuloplasty cardiac catheters are mostly used for nonsurgical dilatation of commissural fusion in stenotic mitral valves and annular, cuspal, and calcific nodular fractures; to improve cuspal mobility in adult calcific aortic stenosis; and for leaflet tearing in pulmonic valve stenosis. These catheters are also used for percutaneous balloon pericardiotomy in patients with recurrent pericardial effusion.
