Post infarct ventricular septal defects (VSDs)

VSDs treatment in Hebbal, Bangalore

Post-infarct ventricular septal defects are a mechanical complication of acute myocardial infarcation. The condition has an inferior prognosis. Research shows that only 0.2% of patients have this condition among those with acute myocardial infarction. The chances of survival, even with intervention, is also significantly less. Surgical repair is suggested as a VSDs treatment in Hebbal, Bangalore; however, advancement in technology of bespoke devices and trans catheters seems to be a viable treatment option.


Trans catheter closure entails large bore venous access and forming an arteriovenous loop to facilitate device deployment in the defect and close the post-infarct ventricular septal defects. This is done under fluoroscopic and trans-oesophageal echocardiographic guidance. Consult with doctors to get detailed information regarding treatments at Manipal Hospitals.
