Endoscopic Closure of ASD and VSD

Endoscopic Closure of ASD and VSD In Yeshwanthpur, Bangalore

Health problems might arise from a hole between the two upper collecting chambers (ASD) or the two bottom pumping chambers (VSD) of the heart. The severity of the symptoms is determined by the size and position of the abnormality and can range from none to severe heart failure. A baby's heart failure causes poor feeding and weight gain, and heart failure in older children can lead to reduced exercise tolerance and breathing difficulties.

A device is used to seal the hole, a patch to cover it, or sutures to sew it close. Open-heart surgery or a minimally invasive approach employing a catheter may be used to insert the closure device. Manipal Hospitals is providing Endoscopic Closure of ASD and VSD In Yeshwanthpur, Bangalore.

Why is the procedure performed?

Septal defects may close on their own depending on their size and location. The cardiologist will most likely wait a time before proposing surgery to see if this occurs organically. However, surgery or catheter closure with a prosthesis will be required in situations with bigger holes and significant symptoms.


Surgical Process

Open-heart surgery is the surgical therapy for the closure of ASDs and VSDs. The heart is halted and opened, and the hole is patched using a synthetic patch like Dacron or a pericardium patch (the thick sac surrounding the heart). Complications are minor, and the hospital stay is only approximately three days.

General anaesthesia is used during ASD closure surgery. You are given drugs that make you unconscious so you do not experience discomfort throughout the procedure.

A healthcare professional links you to several pieces of equipment that monitor your vital indicators, such as heart rate and breathing rate. During the treatment, they will also attach you to a heart-lung machine, which will take over your heart's job.

The medical professional makes an incision (cut) in your chest. Your surgeon will then spread your ribs with a special instrument. Your surgeon locates the ASD using an endoscope, a narrow tube with a light, and a camera at the end. The wound is then closed with a plug, patch, or sutures.

Non-Surgical Process

Many ASDs are treatable without surgery. In the catheterisation laboratory, an occluder device is inserted. This method does not need a surgical incision and does not leave a scar. It is usually a day operation, but your kid may need to stay in the hospital overnight. The device's use is determined by your child's size as well as the size and position of the hole. Book an appointment at Manipal Hospitals to know more about the treatment facilities.

After procedure

Your healthcare team will watch you while you recover from anaesthesia following ASD closure. They also take scans of your heart to ensure the treatment went well. Depending on the operation, you may be admitted to the hospital for one or more nights.

ASD closure can alleviate the symptoms and effects of a heart hole, and this can help you live a longer, more productive life by protecting your heart and lungs.
