The South Carolina Heart Valve Center

Aortic Valve Repair

Depending on the condition, surgeons may choose to preserve and repair the patient’s aortic valve.  Surgical heart valve repair includes separating fused valve flaps, removing or reshaping tissue so the valve can close more tightly, and adding tissue to patch holes or tears or to increase the support at the base of the valve.
