What is Pediatric Cardiac Surgery?

Cardiology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the heart.  There are many kinds of heart defects in children after birth that need medication management and surgery includes, coronary artery disease congenital heart defects, valvular heart disease, heart failure, and valvular heart disease. 

Peace Medical Tourism has world best Pediatric Cardiologists and best pediatric cardiac surgeons have done more than 20,000 surgeries successful. Our hospitals are centres are designed to provide the highest level of professional expertise and patient care and the following treatments:

  • Heart transplantation
  • Ventricular assist devices (VADs) implantation and total artificial heart
  • Transcatheter aortic valve replacement
  • Tricuspid valve regurgitation
  • Heart failure surgery
  • Surgery to treat congenital heart defects in children 
  • Heart valve surgery such as heart valve repair and heart valve replacement
  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
  • Mitral valve regurgitation
  • Thoracic aortic aneurysm
  • BT Shunt/PA Plasty on bypass/Surgical atrial septectomy
  • ASD/PAPVR/GLENN/VSD/TOF/PAVC/DORV Device closure
  • All Re-do cases/CAVC/Fontan
  • Arterial Switch Operation/Truncus Arteriosis
  • Systematic-Pulmonary Artery SHUNTS
  • Pacemaker Insertion ( Single / Double chamber)
  • Balloon Atrial Septostomy (BAS)

Pediatric cardiac congenital symptoms include:

  • Blue or grey skin.
  • Lips and nail beds cyanosis.
  • Difficulty breathing because of the lungs.
  • Problems in heart rate or heart rhythm.
  • Less feeding or sleeping.
  • Lack of growth.
  • Low development of the child.

 

 

Pediatric cardiac congenital risk factor includes:

  • Child dyslipidemia,
  • Hypertension
  • Obesity,
  • Cigarette & smoke exposure,
  • Obesity,
  • physical inactivity and unhealthy diet;
  • Premature coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • The patient is required to go for PSC ( Pre-surgery check-up )  to do some blood test, ECG and ECH for Cardiac check-up and urine tests to know he /she is fit for surgery or not.
  • Before the operation patient’s guardian is asked to sign a consent form, which gives the surgeon permission to carry out the treatment.
  • The paediatric cardiac surgeons should be informed about any medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient is admitted to the hospital one day before the procedures and advised to remain empty stomach/Fasting.
  • Thinners medicines have to stop before ten days of surgery.

Before surgery, the pediatric cardiac surgeons and anaesthesia doctors will guide you about the benefits and risk factor of cardiac surgery.

Step 1 – Anesthesia: Pediatric cardiac surgery usually takes several hours by giving general anaesthesia.

Step 2 – The incision

  1. In pediatric cardiac surgery, an incision is made depending on the procedures required
  2. In Open-heart surgery, an incision made through the breastbone (sternum).
  3. In congenital heart repair, an incision is made on the side of the chest and between the ribs.
  4. In congenital heart defects, catheter procedures or surgery are safer from others procedures. In these procedures, a small needle incision will be made in the skin where the catheter tube will be inserted into the artery to repair. 

Step 3 – Closing the incisions: The Surgeon will flap the skin with the help of Sutures, skin adhesives, tapes or clips close the skin incisions and put the dressing on your wounds.

  • Keep the incision clean and dry and proper dressing. First two to three weeks avoid rough activities to injure the chest wall. 
  • Patients need to follow with paediatric cardiology when fever greater than 101°F or a low-grade fever, Difficulty breathing, opening of the wound or any more complication.
  • Physical activities by the advice of cardiology, its helps children strengthen their muscles and stay healthy.
  • Consult with paediatric cardiology every six months for the routine investigation like blood tests including the Echo.

In Pediatric Cardiac Surgery the success rate depends upon the surgeon experience and post-operative management of surgery. Our hospitals OT and PICU are well designed for post care. Our surgeon performs more than 20,000 pediatric heart surgeries, including open heart and closed heart procedures and heart transplants and more successfully.  The mean success rate for cardiac surgery is 98%. 

 

  • Are you a board-certified pediatric cardiac surgeon?
  • Does your hospital certify to perform pediatric cardiac surgery?
  • Am I a good patient for you to this procedure?
  • Let me know success rates and how long time will take for recovery?
  • What are the risk factors for pediatric cardiac surgery?
  • What treatment plan do you recommend and why?
  • What are my options if I am not satisfied with the outcome of my kid surgery?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of surgery?
  • Do my kid have stitches, staples, and/or bandages?
  • Does my kid have a scar or other permanent effects from the surgery?
  • What type of results can I expect?
  • Does my kid need to go another surgery in the future?
  • Do I need any follow-up appointments or tests after my surgery?
  • Your hospital’s have best pediatric cardiac intensivists care?
  • Your hospital has the best post care, team?
  • Your hospital has a CVICU specialized intensive care unit?
  • What are the survival rates of pediatric cardiac surgery in your hospital?
