Avail Minimally Invasive Congenital Heart Surgery in India for Your Child

Congenital Heart Surgery in India for Your Child

Healthcare authorities in Kuwait are concerned about the increase in the number of children born with congenital heart diseases after the Gulf war. Studies have found that there was a dramatic increase in the number of babies born with congenital heart disease after liberation of Kuwait in comparison with the pre-invasion figures. Although these figures have now stabilized, the cause of this increase still remains relatively obscure. Factors contributing to this rise are said to be environmental pollution and other associated conditions like psychological trauma are subject to speculation.

 

Common Types of Congenital Heart Defects

Congenital heart defects are generally structural problems associated with a baby’s heart at the time of birth. While these generally affect proper functioning of the patient’s heart, many of them may be detected later in life in case they are not causing any immediate symptoms. Atrial septal defect (ASD), ventricular septal defect (VSD), patent ductus arteriosus and heart valve stenosis, atresia or regurgitation problems.

 

  • Septal Defects – Simply known as ‘holes in the heart’, the most common types of septal defects are atrial septal defect and ventricular septal defect. ASD closure surgery and VSD closure surgery is performed for correcting these congenital heart defects. Diagnosis and treatment of these holes in heart have greatly improved nowadays. Moreover, VSD and ASD closure surgery is also performed using minimally invasive techniques as well. Children undergoing VSD and ASD closure surgery can survive to adulthood and are also able to live normal, active and productive lives.
  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus This is basically an unclosed hole which is left in the aorta of an infant at the time of birth. Patent ductus arteriosus opening had earlier served a purpose within the mother’s womb before birth as the lungs were not operational. Ductus arteriosus therefore allowed blood to skip circulation inside the lungs. However, this opening normally closes at birth and allows blood to flow into lungs in order to receive oxygen. This opening which fails to close following birth is known as patent ductus arteriosus.
  • Congenital Problems with Heart Valves – Heart valve replacement surgery is often performed for children having congenital problems with their heart valves. In fact heart valve replacement in several cases is the only option in severe cases of stenosis, atresia and regurgitation. Moreover, since repairing heart valves is more difficult, heart valve replacement is a preferred choice by many cardiac surgeons.
