Paediatric Cardiology

Pediatric Cardiology Hospital in Mukundapur

The pediatric cardiology unit is responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions in children. The heart is a vital organ that pumps blood throughout the body. In a normal heart, there are four chambers, each with its function to perform. Oxygen-depleted blood from the body returns to the right atrium of the heart through the superior and inferior vena cava (blood vessels). This blood then enters the right ventricle, which pumps it down to the pulmonary artery and lungs. In the lungs, the blood picks up oxygen and releases carbon dioxide. The oxygenated blood then returns to the left atrium of the heart through the pulmonary veins. This blood enters the left ventricle, which pumps it out to the rest of the body. Thus completing the circulatory system. The pediatric cardiology unit provides comprehensive care for children with heart conditions. The team of doctors, nurses, and other specialists work together to provide the best possible care for each child.

Know About Us

Why Manipal?

Manipal Hospital is the leading name in pediatric cardiology hospital in Mukundapur with some of the best pediatric cardiologists, cardiac surgeons and cardiologists in the city working under one roof.  The pediatric cardiology department uses the best in class medical technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions in children.

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG): This test records the electrical activity of the heart.

  • Echocardiogram: This test uses sound waves to create a moving image of the heart.

  • Cardiac Catheterization: This test involves inserting a thin tube into a blood vessel in the arm or leg and threading it up to the heart. This allows doctors to measure the pressure in the heart chambers and blood vessels.

Once a heart condition has been diagnosed, the pediatric cardiology unit will develop a treatment plan. Treatment options may include:

  • Medications: Some heart conditions can be treated with medications.

  • Surgery: Surgery may be necessary to repair or replace a defective heart valve or to correct a structural defect in the heart.

  • Lifestyle changes: Some heart conditions can be managed with lifestyle changes, such as changes in diet, exercise, and smoking cessation.

Pediatric Cardiology Hospital in Mukundapur

Our hospital boasts an expert team of the best paediatric cardiologist in Mukundapur and advanced technologies in diagnosing and treating various heart issues in children including: 

  • Fetal Echocardiogram

  • Diagnosis and evaluation of congenital heart defects and post-diagnosis counselling

  • Closure of septal defects such as Atrial Septal Defect (ASD), and Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD): The septal defects are successfully treated by the experts at Manipal Hospital, through Minimally invasive surgery.

  • Balloon Dilatation of Stenotic Valve in Neonates: valve stenosis is a condition characterized by narrow valve opening and reduced blood supply. In children, the condition may be present at birth and can be corrected through balloon dilatation surgery.

  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus Closure: The ductus arteriosus is a hole that allows the blood to skip flowing to the lungs for getting oxygenated when the baby is in the womb. However, this hole should close naturally, when the baby is born to allow blood to receive oxygen from the lungs. In some infants, this hole remains open even after birth and is known as patent ductus arteriosus. In such cases, the hole is closed surgically either by suturing or by placing a metal clip. 

  • Cardiac Catheterization Study: A long narrow tube known as a catheter is inserted into the blood vessels and moved up to the heart to diagnose and treat various heart diseases.  

  • Coil Embolization: An aneurysm is a bulging or weak spot in the blood vessels. An aneurysm can burst to cause blood to leak out of the blood vessels. This can lead to a stroke or haemorrhage. Coil embolization is a minimally invasive procedure in which the aneurysm is filled up with metal coils to prevent blood flow through it. 

  • 24-hour Holter’s Monitoring: It is a battery-operated device that can monitor heart rate and rhythm (ECG) for 24-48 hours. 

  • Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM): A device that can be used to measure blood pressure around the clock.

  • Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE) test: It involves an endoscopy-guided ultrasound of the heart to get a detailed and precise image of the heart. This test is used to check for abnormalities in the heart valves and chambers.

  • Pediatric Echocardiogram:  It is a safe and painless test that makes use of ultrasound to obtain an image of a child’s heart. It is generally used to detect heart problems present at birth. 

  • Fetal Echocardiogram: This test is done to detect heart abnormalities in the growing fetus during the second trimester of pregnancy.
