About Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery
When it comes to congenital heart diseases, trust No Wait Surgery to manage the entire journey, from diagnosis to treatment, ensuring your child receives the best care possible.
Congenital Heart Diseases Explained
Congenital heart disease encompasses a wide range of conditions affecting heart function, from the fetus’s development to birth. These conditions can vary in complexity, from mild issues that may not require treatment to life-threatening situations necessitating open-heart surgery. Shockingly, congenital heart diseases affect 8 out of every 1000 live births, responsible for nearly half of congenital anomaly-related deaths. However, thanks to advancements in diagnosis, treatment, and pediatric heart surgery, an astounding 80 percent of children with congenital heart disease can now grow into healthy adults.
The Role of Pediatric Cardiovascular Surgery
Many congenital heart issues can be detected during pregnancy. While the exact cause of these conditions is often unknown, certain factors, like a family history of congenital heart disease, chromosomal anomalies (such as Down Syndrome), or maternal infections and diabetes during pregnancy, can increase the risk. Nowadays, most serious heart problems can be identified during pregnancy through ultrasound examinations, particularly around the 20th week. While mild cases may not require treatment, some heart defects can close naturally. However, severe cases may necessitate open-heart surgery or catheter-based interventions. In complex scenarios, multiple surgeries may be required over the years.
