Cardiac Bypass Surgery in India

What Is Cardiac Bypass Surgery?

Cardiac bypass surgery is a procedure that restores the flow of the blood to the heart, when there obstruction occurs due to blockages in one or more arteries. These arteries are bypassed by using blood vessels taken from the other parts of the body like chest and legs. The blood vessels bypasses over the blocked artery to create new pathways for oxygen-rich blood to flow to the heart. These blood vessels restore and improve the blood flow to the heart. This surgery is usually performed with the heart stopped, necessitating the usage of cardiopulmonary bypass; techniques are available to perform bypass surgery on a beating heart, so-called "off-pump" surgery. Depending on the number of blocked coronary arteries, a patient may need one, two, three or more bypasses.

Conditions for Cardiac Bypass Surgery:

Cardiac Bypass Surgery is required in following conditions-

  • Patient has a blockage in one or more of his/her coronary arteries. Coronary arteries are the small blood vessels that supply your heart with oxygen and nutrients that are carried in your blood.
  • If a patient has one or more artery severely narrowed and obstructing the blood flow and a weak pumping heart.
  • Patient has an artery blockage for which angioplasty isn't appropriate and had a previous angioplasty or stent placement that hasn't been successful, or had stent placement but the artery has narrowed again.
  • Cardiac bypass surgery is also done in emergencies conditions like heart attack when other treatments are not responding.

The goals of cardiac bypass surgery is to relieve symptoms of coronary artery disease such as chest pain (angina) and /or shortness of breath (including angina), which enables the patient to resume a normal lifestyle and to lower the risk of a heart attack or other heart problems.

Risk Factors Related to Cardiac Bypass Surgery:

There are risks and complications associated with the procedure which should be considered before going for Cardiac bypass surgery and those include:-

  • Chest wound infection
  • Low-grade fever and chest pain
  • Loss of mental clarity, or "fuzzy thinking"
  • Heart rhythm problems

Patient's risk of developing these complications depends on the overall health and lifestyle before the surgery.

Success Rate of Cardiac Bypass Surgery:

The success rate of cardiac bypass surgery depends on following factors which are considered while selecting surgery procedure on an individual basis.

  • The success rate for cardiac bypass surgery is 98%.
  • According to studies in many patients with poor heart muscle function - resulting from a heart attack - the poor function improves after the procedure.
  • Success rate depends on the risk factors such as kidney problems, diabetes or hypertension. Lower the risk factors higher the success rate of cardiac bypass surgery.
  • A lower risk of stroke
  • Fewer problems with memory loss and thinking skills
  • Lower death rate - especially among women and "high risk" patients
  • Less need for transfusion
  • Reduced injury to the heart
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Fewer heart rhythm problems

Preparations before Cardiac Bypass Surgery Procedure:

Always patient should tell doctor or nurse what drugs he/she is taking, even drugs or herbs bought without a prescription.

During the days before your surgery:

  • For the 2-week period before surgery patient may be asked to stop taking drugs that make it harder for his/her blood to clot. These might cause increased bleeding during the surgery. They include aspirin, ibuprofen (such as Advil and Motrin), naproxen (such as Aleve and Naprosyn), and other similar drugs. If patient is taking clopidogrel (Plavix), talk with surgeon about when to stop taking it.
  • Patient should ask doctor which drugs should still take on the day of the surgery.
  • Patient should contact doctor if have a cold, flu, fever, herpes breakout, or any other illness.

On the day of the surgery:

  • Patient will usually be asked not to drink or eat anything after midnight the night before surgery. This includes chewing gum and breath mints.
  • Patient is told to take any medications with a small sip of water.

Cardiac Bypass Surgery Procedure:

Patient will receive general anesthesia before the procedure starts. The surgeon will make a 10-inch surgical cut (incision) in the middle of the chest. Breastbone will be separated to create an opening so that surgeon can see heart and aorta, the main blood vessel leading from the heart to the rest of the body.

  • Surgeon may use a vein, called the saphenous vein, in patient's leg. To reach this vein, a surgical cut will be made along the inside of leg, between ankle and the groin. One end of the graft will be sewn to coronary artery. The other end will be sewn to an opening made in aorta.
  • A blood vessel in the chest, called the internal mammary artery (IMA), can also be used as the graft. One end of this artery is already connected to aorta. The other end is attached to the coronary artery.
  • Other arteries are also being used for grafts in bypass surgery. The most common one is the radial artery in one's wrist.

This surgery can take 4 to 6 hours. After the surgery, patient will be taken to the intensive care unit.

Cardiac Bypass Surgery Advantages:

  • In recent years, the risk of serious complications due to cardiac bypass has been dramatically reduced due to improved surgical techniques. After the bypass surgery patients can improve their health and lessen their likelihood of further cardiac disease.
  • After bypass surgery, the blood supply to the area of the heart that was previously restricted due to narrowing of the artery supplying that area is restored. The blocked artery has now been bypassed.
  • Bypass surgery often relieves symptoms of chest pain (angina), improves exercise performance, and reduces the risk of a future heart attack.
  • Cardiac bypass surgery may offer the advantages of greater durability and more complete revascularization.

Cardiac Bypass Surgery Alternative:

Alternatives to bypass surgery are usually based solely upon the results of an angiogram that show the presence of coronary artery disease. Most are grossly undertreated with alternative modern medications and other bypass surgery alternatives such as exercise, weight loss, cessation of smoking and stress and blood pressure control. Patient can consider the option of MIDCAB when the blockage is in the arteries located on the left anterior descending (LAD) artery. This artery and its branches are located on the front of the heart. This procedure can only be used when there are no more than two bypasses required.

Cardiac Bypass Surgery India:

  • India offers treatment of various complicated diseases at a very reasonable cost. India has become the healthcare hub for international patients as it provides with the latest in medical treatment facilities and best services making it easy and comfortable.

Chemotherapy:

The cancer cells are destroyed using drugs which stop the growing and dividing ability of the cancer cells. Chemotherapy can be given through pills and capsules that are swallowed or through the intravenous tube placed into the vein.

Targeted Therapy:

This treatment targets the cancer-specific genes, proteins or the tissue environment that contributes the growth of cancer and survival. The procedure blocks the growth and spread of cancer cells while limiting the damage to the healthy ones.

Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Surgery India

Laparoscopic Hernia Repair

A laparoscopic hernia repair is basically a minimally invasive surgical procedure used in repair of most types of hernia. A hernia is caused when the internal organs or tissues bulge out and can be seen straining against the abdominal wall noticeably.

Hernias are seen in various parts of the body such as abdomen, diaphragm, groin, brain and at previous surgery sites. Many different methods are used to treat or repair hernia including hernioplasty, herniorrhaphy and herniotomy although laparoscopic hernia repair is still considered to be most convenient and efficient than other traditional hernia repair methods.

A laparoscopic hernia repair procedure is used to treat various types of hernias such as umbilical hernia, femoral hernia, inguinal hernia, etc.

How is Laparoscopic Hernia Repair surgery performed?

A hernia repair surgery is to correct the abnormal bulge caused by bulging internal organ or tissue accumulation. The hernia repair may be performed using the more conventional open-type surgical method which is more time-consuming and extensive. The latest technique in repairing hernias is the minimally invasive surgical method known as 'laparoscopic hernia repair surgery'.

The laparoscopic hernia repair surgery is similar to other minimally invasive procedures. The surgery requires administering general anesthesia to the patient. A very small (keyhole) incision is made in the navel or just below it. The surgeon will fill carbon dioxide gas in the abdominal cavity through this incision in order to inflate it and get a better view of all the abdominal organs and tissues.

A thin and flexible tube (laparoscope) is inserted from this keyhole incision. This laparoscope is initially fitted with a cold light-source and a video camera at its end so the surgeon can get a good visual of the abdominal organs and tissues on the video monitor. The surgeon then uses specialized tiny surgical instruments attached to similar flexible tubes to perform the surgical procedure. This involves the surgeon repairing the hernia by pushing it back to its original position and preventing the bulging of the organ or the herniated tissue. After shifting the herniated tissue back into its original position the surgeon will use a surgical mesh to be fixed over the previously herniated tissue to prevent it from bulging out again in the future.

A laparoscopic hernia repair is known to be considerably less painful and also decreases the amount of time spent in the hospital as well as the recovery period.

Why is a Laparoscopic Hernia Repair required?

A laparoscopic hernia repair is one of the more convenient and efficient methods of repairing herniated organs and tissues, especially in the abdominal region. A surgical repair is required for painful hernias including strangulated or incarcerated hernias. For children with inguinal hernias a surgery is the most ideal treatment method.

Laparoscopic hernia repair is considered ideal for patients who are in an otherwise good overall health and without any serious underlying medical disorder or conditions. The surgeon/doctor will check your complete medical history as well as perform a physical examination to determine of you are fit to undergo a surgery.

Laparoscopic hernia repair surgery is not recommended for patients who:

  • Have incarcerated hernia
  • Have anesthetic allergy
  • Are hemophiliac (bleeding disorder)
  • Are on blood-thinning medication
  • Have had abdominal surgeries and scar tissue prevents efficient use of laparoscope
  • Are pregnant
  • Are morbidly obese

What are the advantages of a Laparoscopic Hernia Repair surgery?

A laparoscopic hernia repair surgery is advantageous over a conventional open-type hernia repair surgery because:

  • Laparoscopic surgery is fast becoming the choice of most patients about to undergo surgery due to less pain and discomfort seen after surgery as well as the faster rate of recovery associated with it
  • Recurrent hernia cases can be successfully repaired in a better way by using laparoscopic hernia repair as compared to conventional open-type hernia repair surgery
  • It allows you to simultaneously check for a second hernia and repair it during the same surgery
  • Cosmetically speaking, a laparoscopic surgical method is more preferable as it lessens the amount of scars after surgery too

What are the risks associated with a Laparoscopic Hernia Repair surgery?

A laparoscopic hernia repair surgery entails the commonly seen risks associated with a surgical procedure such as:

  • Anesthetic allergy
  • Pain in the testicles or in the spermatic cord
  • Damage to the spermatic cord may cause infertility
  • Fluid/blood accumulation in the scrotum, inguinal canal or the abdominal muscles
  • Bladder injury
  • Urinary difficulties
  • Infection at the incision site
  • Scar tissue formation at incision site
  • Internal organ damage/injury
  • Numb/painful thighs
  • Hernia recurrence

Generally, laparoscopic hernia repair is not recommended for patients who:

  • Are prone to blood clots (deep vein thrombosis)
  • Are habitual smokers
  • Are on aspirin medication
  • Take blood thinners
  • Are suffering from serious urinary problems

A laparoscopic hernia repair surgery requires smaller-sized and lesser number of incisions than that is required in a conventional open-type hernia repair surgery. A laparoscopic hernia repair can be used to repair hernias present on both sides at the same time through the same incisions. Laparoscope allows the surgeon to check the complete abdominal cavity for other herniated sites or similar damage to the organs.

Pediatric neurosurgery can prove beneficial for treating the following neurological conditions in children. Parents must keep a check on their children in terms of their health and development. They should not delay in seeking a medical assistance on observing the following neurological problems in children.

  • Arteriovenous Malformations (AVMs) - Arteriovenous malformations refer to a condition which occurs when blood vessels that supply blood to brain get tangled in an abnormal way. It may lead to frequent headaches and seizures in children and degrade their life.
  • Brain Tumors - Brain tumors in children can result in a large range of health complications such as speech difficulties, loss of sensation and behavioral changes. Such tumors appear when abnormal mass of tissues and cells begin to accumulate in brain region.
  • Cerebral Palsy - Cerebral palsy can damage healthy brain cells and negatively affect motor function in children. It mainly occurs due to serious brain injury or trauma in early childhood.
  • Craniosynostosis - It is a birth defect which results due to abnormal closing of child's skull. Children suffering from craniosynostosis mostly have an abnormally shaped head.
  • Cerebral Aneurysms - Cerebral aneurysms in children may occur when blood vessels in their brain get swollen. Children suffering from cerebral aneurysms may encounter neck pain and headaches at regular intervals of time.
  • Hydrocephalus - This neurological condition emerges when cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) begins to create pressure on spinal cord and brain. Exact cause behind excessive accumulation of CSF is not known. But it may lead to bladder control issues, eyesight problems and personality changes in children.
  • Dystonia - Tremor is a primary indication of dystonia. Dystonia basically refers to several movement disorders that cause unusual posture and muscle spasms in children.
  • Down Syndrome - It is a genetic neurological condition that results in physical as well as mental disability in children. Children struggling with this problem may complain of neck pain every now and then.
  • Epilepsy - It is a serious nervous system disorder that leads to recurrent seizures and headaches in children. Intensity of seizures may vary for different children.
  • Spasticity - It can be simply defined as a muscle tone disorder. It may lead to abnormal contractions and stiffness of muscles which can eventually decrease functional ability of children.
  • Spina Bifida - It is a birth defect that occurs due to improper development of spinal cord of children. Numbness around legs and abnormal spine curvature are the most prominent symptoms of spina bifida.
  • Spinal Cord Tumors - These tumors result from formation and accumulation of abnormal tissues around spine and nearby areas. Such tumors can result in instability of spine and weaken body of children.

Preparing for Pediatric Neurosurgery

Parents must find out a well-qualified and adept pediatric neurosurgeon for ensuring positive results following treatment of their children.

  • Initial Appointment - During initial medical appointment, respective neurosurgeons may ask a couple of questions to parents. For instance, they may ask regarding medical history of children and the symptoms which are disturbing them.
  • Neurological Evaluation - It involves a complete inspection of functioning of nervous system of children. Neurosurgeons may ask children to perform simple activities like walking, standing, smelling something and so on. It will help them in understanding their sensory and motor functions.
  • Imaging Tests - Doctors may recommend certain imaging tests such as computed tomography, positron emission tomography, ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging scan in order to figure out exact underlying condition of brain and entire central nervous system. These tests are helpful in generating high resolution images of brain and underlying structures.

Depending on the results of diagnostic tests, respective neurosurgeons will outline a befitting neurosurgery for children. In addition to this, surgeons may advise parents to make dietary changes prior to the treatment of children.

Pediatric Neurosurgery Procedures

The following points describe some of the most widely performed pediatric neurosurgery procedures.

  • Endovascular Embolization - This neurosurgery can be performed for treating arteriovenous malformations. It involves the use of a sophisticated medical instrument known as a 'catheter'. Catheter has a camera on one end which guides doctors throughout the operation with a high degree of precision. During the surgical procedure, respective surgeons insert the catheter through groin of children for accessing the impaired arteries and blood vessels. After that, they inject a specialized material in these arteries which considerably minimizes the flow of blood through AVM.
  • Targeted Radiation Therapy - This procedure can be used for treating spinal cord tumors and brain tumors in children. It is a painless medical intervention that uses high-intensity radiation to destroy the harmful tumor cells. It specifically targets the areas where tumor is present and thus spares the surrounding healthy cells and tissues.
  • Corpus Callosotomy - This neurosurgery is particularly designed to treat seizures in children. Corpus callosum is a network of nerve fibers in brain that interlinks the two halves of brain. During a corpus callosotomy, respective doctors remove the skull for reaching out to brain of children. After that, they make a cut in underlying corpus callosum to break the fibrous connection of two regions of brain. It reduces the intensity as well as frequency of seizures in children to a great extent.
  • Brain Tumor Surgery - A brain tumor surgery involves making an incision in skull so as to access the brain. Respective doctors carefully inspect the internal areas, remove the tumors and close the incision. They may monitor children for some time in order to ensure their safety.
  • Microvascular Clipping - This procedure is performed to treat cerebral aneurysms in children. Surgeons remove a small region of skull for reaching the desired location in brain. They may use a microscope or x-rays to serve the purpose and carefully insert a clip for clamping the trouble-causing arteries or blood vessels. This clipping technique can significantly prevent rupturing of cerebral aneurysms.
  • Rhizotomy - Rhizotomy surgery can help in treating neurological conditions like spasticity and cerebral palsy. It involves cutting the nerve fibers that lead to unwanted spasms and contractions. In most instances, doctors use an electrical stimulation for destroying the nerves fibers and eliminating intense nerve pain in children.
  • Spinal Fusion - It can provide relief from symptoms of Down syndrome such as severe neck pain. It involves fusing or joining two spinal vertebras for stabilizing the painful neck condition in children. Doctors mostly use rods and metal plates to hold the bone in proper position until it fuses completely.
  • Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) - It can be performed to treat conditions such as tremors, epilepsy and dystonia. DBS involves insertion of medical instruments known as electrodes in child's brain. Surgeons interconnects these electrodes with a battery which is implanted near chest of children. This battery generates electrical impulses for controlling the symptoms of dystonia or tremors in children.
  • Shunt Placement Surgery - This procedure is highly beneficial for children suffering from hydrocephalus and seizures. It involves making a small incision in skull as well as near ear of children. Surgeons use two catheters during the operation. One catheter is inserted through an opening near ear that extends to chest and abdomen and other is inserted into an opening in skull. They connect a small pump to these catheters for extracting excessive amount of cerebrospinal fluid. Whenever CSF level increases and creates pressure in brain or spinal cord, the pump gets activated and routes the CSF to abdominal cavity of children.

Risks and Complications Associated with Pediatric Neurosurgery

The following list elaborates some general risks and complications which may occur during postoperative period.

  • Infection - A serious infection may occur around incision site. Parents must seek a prompt medical assistance for controlling this issue.
  • Swelling - Children may encounter pain and swelling around the operated brain area.
  • Bleeding - In rare instances, heavy bleeding may occur in brain of children.
  • Additional Issues - Some children may face coordination difficulties, vision problems and trouble speaking clearly. In such instances, doctors may refer the children to an occupational therapist.

Parents must ask regarding the possible measures that can reduce the risks of such complications prior to pediatric neurosurgery. It will significantly raise the chances of successful results in future.

Recovery Following Pediatric Neurosurgery

Hospital stay and recovery process will vary according to the type of pediatric neurosurgery and general health of children. Initially, children may experience pain and slight discomfort. Respective surgeons are likely to provide some medicines to help children cope with the uneasiness. They may order them to follow a basic exercising regime and eat a balanced diet comprising healthy food items. It will definitely increase their body strength and accelerate speedy and smooth recovery. Apart from this, parents should take their children for follow-up care sessions at regular time intervals.

Scoliosis Surgery in India | Scoliosis Surgery Cost India

Scoliosis Surgery in India

Scoliosis surgery in India is a great attraction for medical tourists because of excellent facilities and low costs of services. Scoliosis treatment in India is a good solution for scoliosis patients due to:

  • High quality medical care
  • Qualified, skilled and competent spine surgeons
  • Cost effectiveness and better communication due to no language barrier
  • Low cost of scoliosis surgery in India

Scoliosis: An Overview

Every person has a natural curve in their spine. The natural curvature makes the spine aligned slightly inward in the lower part of the back. But some people have a deformity in the alignment of the spine, therefore, making it appear curved from side to side. This sideways alignment of the spine curvature is known as scoliosis.

A rear view spine X-ray shows a straight line in the case of a normal individual. But the spine of a patient with scoliosis looks "S" or "C" shaped. A mild curvature ranges between 10 to 20 degrees, while a moderate curvature ranges between 20 and 50 degrees. On the other hand, a curvature of more than 50 degrees is considered as a severe spinal curvature.

Types of Scoliosis

Usually, scoliosis is differentiated on the basis of their cause. But sometimes the location of the spinal curvature may also be considered to differentiate scoliosis. Differentiation on the basis of cause: There are three types of scoliosis in this category:

Functional scoliosis: In this case, abnormality in the alignment arises due to a problem somewhere else in the body. Specific conditions such as a difference in the length of the legs, muscle spasms, or inflammatory conditions such as appendicitis may give rise to functional scoliosis.

Neuromuscular scoliosis: This condition develops at the time of bone or spine formation. Bones of the spine do not form completely or they fail to get separated from each other and remain fused during the development of the fetus. Neuromuscular scoliosis often results in C-shaped curvature and muscles eventually become weak while keeping the spine upright.

Degenerative scoliosis: Adults are more likely to get affected with degenerative scoliosis as it results because of problems such as spondylosis, osteoporosis, and disc degeneration. Abnormal bone spurs are present along with weak ligaments in the spine that may give rise to a diverged curvature of the spine.

Causes of Scoliosis

There can be many reasons for scoliosis, which can be categorised into:

Congenital: Congenital scoliosis is the scoliosis present by birth due to embryonic malformation of one or more vertebrae and can occur at any location of the spine. Since scoliosis is present by birth, it is diagnosed early in life.

Neuromuscular: Neuromuscular scoliosis is because of any neurological or muscular disease like cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy or spina bifida. Neuromuscular scoliosis generally progresses very rapidly and needs surgery.

Idiopathic: When the exact cause of scoliosis is not known, it is ascribed as idiopathic. It accounts for 80% of all known cases of scoliosis and is usually detected during puberty.

Most cases of scoliosis are mild and do not require any surgery. However, some children develop deformities that continue to get severe as they grow, which can be disabling. Severe spinal curve can reduce the amount of space within the chest making lung functioning difficult.

Symptoms of Scoliosis

Following are symptoms of Scoliosis which should be taken into serious consideration:

  • Curvature of spine.
  • Irregular shoulders.
  • Asymmetric waistline.
  • One hip higher than the other.
  • The patient may experience pain in back or tire easily during physical activities.

Treatments for Scoliosis

Scoliosis treatment is primarily based on two aspects:

  • Skeletal growth of the patient.
  • Degree of spinal curve.

There are three major Scoliosis treatment options for patients which include Observation, Braces and Scoliosis Surgery. Exercise is primarily advised for Scoliosis patients to keep backside muscles flexible and strong. Surgery for adolescents suffering from Scoliosis is only suggested when their curves are more than 40 to 45 degrees and still continuing to progress. Unlike braces, which do not rectify already existing spinal curves, surgery can amend curvature by about 50%. Moreover, Scoliosis Surgery prevents further advancement of deformity. Main purpose of Scoliosis surgery is to minimize the patient's curve.

Aim of Scoliosis treatment in India is twofold.

  • Straighten the spine
  • Balancing physique for long term

Basically, there are two approaches to Scoliosis Surgery, first is an anterior approach & the other is posterior approach.

Anterior Surgery (from the front): It incorporates expulsion of intervertebral discs and rectification of deformity using screws and rods or bone grafts (taken from pelvis).

Posterior Surgery (from the back): It incorporates removal of some of the joints of spine and correction of deformity.

The cost of scoliosis surgery in Delhi may differ from what the same procedure costs in Mumbai, Bangalore, or Chennai. The Scoliosis Surgery Cost in India further depends on the type of treatment suggested by the doctor. There are different types of surgeries used to treat scoliosis and the doctor may suggest any one of them, depending on the condition of the patient and the diagnosis made. In addition, the total cost of scoliosis surgery in India depends on several other factors, including the duration of hospital stay, surgeon's fees, anesthesia cost, cost of additional medical tests or side procedures, and hospital charges.

The Scoliosis Surgery Cost in India remains the lowest in the world even when all these factors are considered apart from the accommodation and boarding expenses. Spinal fusion, posterior back surgery, and thoracoplasty are the three most common surgical approaches used for the treatment of scoliosis in India. The Scoliosis Surgery Cost in India ranges starts from $8000 and the cost of posterior back surgery in India starts from $4000. On the other hand, thoracoplasty cost in India starts from $2500.

ASD Closure Surgery in India: Surgeries and Devices Used For Treatment

What is an ASD (Atrial Septal Defect) Closure?

An atrial septal defect (ASD) is caused when the person's heart develops a hole in the wall that divides the atrial chambers (upper two chambers) of the heart. This results in the mixing of oxygenated and de-oxygenated blood that is likely to cause certain complications that affect the heart and lungs in the affected person.

A large ASD is also known to cause severe complications such as:

  • Heart stroke risk
  • Arrhythmia
  • Heart failure of the right-hand side
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Eisenmenger syndrome

What are the types of devices and surgeries used to treat Atrial Septal Defect (ASD)?

The treatment method and the device to be used to perform a successful and efficient atrial septal defect (ASD) is dependent on a number of factors that basically deal with the size of the hole as well as the general overall health of the patient.

Medications can be prescribed to relieve some of the discomforting signs and symptoms that arise due to atrial septal defect (ASD). Medications can also decrease the risk of other complications to arise after the surgery such as anticoagulants to prevent blood clot as well as beta blockers to prevent arrhythmia.

The treatment method to perform an ASD closure involves surgery and is usually suggested to be done as soon as the ASD is detected to prevent further complications from arising in the future. Surgical method of treating is used to treat medium to large sized atrial septal holes.

These are the two main types of surgical treatments that are recommended for ASD closure:

Cardiac catheterization

This surgery involves inserting a catheter (thin surgical tube) into the groin area and guiding it to the heart using imaging technology. This catheter is then used to block and close the hole in the atrial region of the heart using a plug or a mesh patch. The mesh acts as a support for tissue to grow around the hole and eventually seal it.

This method is efficient in repairing secundum atrial septal defects and may not be successful in repairing larger sized atrial septal defects.

Open-heart surgery

This is a major form of surgery requiring the surgeon to administer general anesthesia and putting the patient on a heart-lung machine during the surgery period.

The surgeon makes an incision in the chest (sternum) area and invades the heart to seal the ASD hole with an artificial patch. Primum, sinus venosus and coronary sinus types of ASD are treated using an open-heart surgery method.

This treatment can also be performed using minimally invasive techniques that require smaller incisions to reach the heart and fix the patch to seal the hole in the atrial region of the heart.

Why choose to get Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) Closure surgery in India?

The cardio-specialist doctors and cardiac surgeons in India are well known for their proficiency and experience in treating all types of major and severe cardiac complications and defects. These surgeons and doctors are supported by a well-trained medical staff that makes the surgery more successful.

Complicated surgical procedures done by top most doctors having years of experience and hundreds of successive surgical procedures done- at the top most reputed NABH and NQAC accreditation hospitals with all modern health and comfort facilities, round the clock monitoring and personal care provided. Some of the most common surgical procedures include the following:

  • AppendectomyAn appendectomy is the surgical removal of the appendix, a small tube that branches off the large intestine, to treat acute appendicitis. Appendicitis is the acute inflammation of this tube due to infection.
  • Breast biopsyA biopsy is a diagnostic test involving the removal of tissue or cells for examination under a microscope. This procedure is also used to remove abnormal breast tissue. A biopsy may be done using a hollow needle to extract tissue (needle biopsy), or a lump may be partially or completely removed (lumpectomy) for examination and/or treatment.
  • Carotid endarterectomy. Carotid endarterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove blockage from carotid arteries, the arteries located in the neck that supply blood to the brain. Left untreated, a blocked carotid artery can lead to a stroke.
  • Cataract surgery. Cataracts cloud the normally clear lens of the eyes. Cataract surgery involves the removal of the cloudy lens, which is replaced with a clear artificial lens implant.
  • Cesarian section (also called a c-section). Cesarian section is the surgical delivery of a baby by an incision through the mother's abdomen and uterus. This procedure is done when doctors determine it a safer alternative than a vaginal delivery for the mother, baby, or both.
  • CholecystectomyA cholecystectomy is surgery to remove the gallbladder (a pear-shaped sac near the right lobe of the liver that holds bile). A gallbladder may need to be removed if the organ is prone to troublesome gallstones, if it is infected, or becomes cancerous.
  • Coronary artery bypassMost commonly referred to as simply "bypass surgery," this surgery is often done in people who have angina (chest pain) and coronary artery disease (where plaque has built up in the arteries). During the surgery, a bypass is created by grafting a piece of a vein above and below the blocked area of a coronary artery, enabling blood to flow around the obstruction. Veins are usually taken from the leg, but arteries from the chest may also be used to create a bypass graft.
  • Debridement of wound, burn, or infection. Debridement involves the surgical removal of foreign material and/or dead, damaged, or infected tissue from a wound or burn. By removing the diseased or dead tissue, healthy tissue is exposed to allow for more effective healing.
  • Dilation and curettage (also called D & C). A D&C is a minor operation in which the cervix is dilated (expanded) so that the cervical canal and uterine lining can be scraped with a curette (spoon-shaped instrument).
  • Free skin graft. A skin graft involves detaching healthy skin from one part of the body to repair areas of lost or damaged skin in another part of the body. Skin grafts are often done as a result of burns, injury, or surgical removal of diseased skin. They are most often done when the area is too large to be repaired by stitching or natural healing.
  • Hemorrhoidectomy. A hemorrhoidectomy is the surgical removal of hemorrhoids, distended veins in the lower rectum or anus.
  • HysterectomyA hysterectomy is the surgical removal of a woman's uterus. This may be done laparoscopically through an abdominal incision or vaginally. The ovaries may be removed at the same time.
  • HysteroscopyHysteroscopy is a surgical procedure used to help diagnose and treat many uterine disorders. The hysteroscope (a viewing instrument inserted through the vagina for a visual exam of the canal of the cervix and the interior of the uterus) can transmit an image of the uterine canal and cavity to a television screen.
  • Inguinal hernia repair. Inguinal hernias are when the small intestine bulges through a weak area in the lower abdominal muscles. An inguinal hernia occurs in the groin. Surgical repair pulls the intestine back to its original location.
  • Low back pain surgery. Low back pain can have various causes, including abnormal development of the backbone, stress on the back, injury, or a physical disorder that affects the bones of the spine. Usually, surgery is not considered until other options have been exhausted, including rest, medication, and mild exercise. The type of surgery done on the back depends on the diagnosis.
  • MastectomyA mastectomy is the removal of all or part of the breast. Mastectomies are usually done to treat breast cancer. There are several types of mastectomies, including the following:
    • Partial (segmental) mastectomy, involves the removal of the breast cancer and a larger portion of the normal breast tissue around the breast cancer.
    • Total (or simple) mastectomy, in which the surgeon removes the entire breast, including the nipple, the areola (the colored, circular area around the nipple), and most of the overlying skin, and may also remove some of the lymph nodes under the arm, also called the axillary lymph glands.
    • Modified radical mastectomy, in which the surgeon removes the entire breast (including the nipple, the areola, and the overlying skin), some of the lymph nodes under the arm, and the lining over the chest muscles. In some cases, part of the chest wall muscles is also removed.
  • Partial colectomy. A partial colectomy is the removal of part of the large intestine (colon) which may be done to treat cancer of the colon  or inflammatory conditions such as ulcerative colitis or diverticulitis.
  • ProstatectomyThe surgical removal of all or part of the prostate gland, the sex gland in men that surrounds the neck of the bladder and urethra--the tube that carries urine away from the bladder. A prostatectomy may be done for an enlarged prostate, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or if the prostate gland is cancerous.
  • Tonsillectomy. The surgical removal of one or both tonsils. Tonsils are located at the back of the mouth and help fight infections
