Naeem’s mitral valve was replaced
Naeem Ahmed's Story
Naeem Ahmed, aged 35 years, felt a sharp stabbing pain in his chest from time to time. He also suffered from shortness of breath on walking a little. These symptoms prevailed for over four years. On medical consultation, he was diagnosed with Mitral stenosis. In this condition, the mitral valve opening narrows down which restricts blood flow in one chamber of the heart. The treating cardiologist recommended a mitral valve replacement. For this reason, Naeem was admitted to National Hospital & Medical Center and the procedure was performed by Dr. Ahmed Shahbaz on 30.03.2021. He stayed in the hospital for four days and was discharged in a stable condition. Naeem’s health has improved significantly and his chest pain has finally ended.
