Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information the effect of balloon valvuloplasty may last a minimum of about 2 years. As it is a mild procedure the procedure is performed with local anesthetia and mild sedation, a person will likely be awake during the procedure.
