 Low cost VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect) Closure surgery with medical tourism in India Definition
 
Ventricular septal defect
describes one or more holes in the wall that separates the rightand left ventricles of the heart. Ventricular septal defect is one of the most commoncongenital (present from birth) heart defects.

What are the types of Ventricular Septal Defects?
Ventricular Septal Defect
can be divided in to 3 types:
 
*Size of the
Ventricular Septal Defect
Small
Ventricular Septal Defect
Moderate (or medium-sized)
Ventricular Septal Defect
Large
Ventricular Septal Defect
 
*Location of the
Ventricular Septal Defect
Membranous
Ventricular Septal Defect
is located near the heart valves.Muscular 
 Ventricular Septal Defect
is found in the lower part of the septumInlet
 Ventricular Septal Defect
is located close to where blood enters the heart.Outlet
 Ventricular Septal Defect
are found in the part of the ventricle where the bloodleaves the heart.
 
*Presence or absence of a
ventricular septal aneurysm
 
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
 
Before a baby is born, the right and left ventricles of its heart are not separate. As thefetus grows, a wall forms to separate these two ventricles. If the wall does not completelyform, a hole remains. This hole is known as a ventricular septal defect, or a VSD.It isestimated that up to 1% of babies are born with this condition. The baby may have nosymptoms, and the hole can eventually close as the wall continues to grow after birth. If the hole is large, then too much blood will be pumped to the lungs, leading to congestiveheart failure. These babies are often have symptoms related to heart failure and may needmedicine to control the symptoms and surgery to close the hole. The cause of VSD is notyet known. This defect often occurs along with other congenital heart defects. In adults,interventricular septal defects are a rare, but serious complication of heart attacks. Thishole is related to the heart attack and does not result from a birth defect.
 
 Symptoms
 
*Shortness of breath*Fast breathing*Hard breathing*Paleness*Failure to gain weight*Fast heart rate*Pounding heart*Sweating while feeding*Frequent respiratory infections
Who Needs VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect) Closure?
People who suffer fromVSDmay display symptoms that include: breathing difficulties,an enlarged heart, an irregular heart rhythm, and even heart failure. A cardiologist canconfirm the presence or absence of the defect after completing the necessary healthcaretests and diagnoses.
 Prevention
 
Except for the case of heart attack associatedVSD, this condition is always present at birth. Drinking alcohol and using the antiseizure medicines depakote and Dilantin during pregnancy have been associated with increased incidence of VSDs. Other than avoidingthese two things during pregnancy, there is no known way to prevent a VSD.
Treatment 
If the defect is small, no treatment is usually needed. However, the baby should beclosely monitored by a health care provider to make sure that the hole eventually closes properly and signs of heart failure do not occur. With congestive heart failure,medications such as digitalis (digoxin) and diuretics may be prescribed.
 
Regardless of thesize of the defect, all children with a VSD need to take antibiotics before undergoingdental work and certain other invasive procedures.
 
If symptoms continue despitemedication, surgery to close the defect with a Gore-tex patch is needed. Some VSDs can be closed with a special device during a catheterization. Treating a VSD that does nothave symptoms is controversial, and should be carefully discussed with your health care provider.
The VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect) Closure Procedure
Ventricular septal defect closure (VSD) involves many health risks that the patient should be informed of before the surgery proceeds. Because this is open heart surgery performed under general anesthesia, certain precautions must be taken to minimizecomplications, infections, and further damage to the heart. Before the heart is opened for 
 
surgery, the patient is connected to a heart-lung machine. The operation involves thecardiologist cutting into the patient’s pericardial tissue and repairing the hole using asynthetic material. Barring further heart complications after completion of the initial
VSD (ventricular septal defect)
closure, no further surgery should be required.To compare the cost of ventricular septal defect closure by country, please consult our medical tourism pricing guide.
What type of anesthesia will be used 
?
Anesthesiologists who specialize in pediatric cardiovascular anesthesia will manage theanesthetic care of the patient throughout the surgery. They collaborate closely with thesurgeon and the rest of the OR team to monitor and manage the patient’s care in theoperating room. Based on their pre-operative assessment, they will individualize theanesthetic to meet each patient’s physiologic needs. In most cases, a general anestheticapproach is used which results in the patient being completely unconscious and pain-freeduring the entire surgery as well as shortly afterward...
What happens after the surgery
?
The patient will be transferred to the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (CVICU) by thecardiovascular anesthesiologist and the team of operating room nurses. The CVICU issituated directly adjacent to the cardiovascular operating rooms to maximize patientsafety. This makes the transition from the operating room to the CVICU a smooth process. Once the patient arrives in the CVICU, a thorough report of the surgical procedure is given to the Cardiologist and the CVICU nursing team who will bemanaging care in the CVICU. The surgeon will update the family on the operation oncethe patient is settled into the CVICU. Family members may usually visit the patientwithin an hour after arrival to the CVICU...Alternatives to surgery for 
Ventricular Septal Defect
Medications - Diuretics, Digoxin and antibiotics may be used as palliative measures tostabilize people with
Ventricular Septal Defect
.Septal Occluder - This procedure is similar toCardiac Catheterization
 
used to implant aStentin the coronary artery. In this procedure, an umbrella shaped mesh is inserted toocclude or block the
Ventricular Septal Defect
. This mesh is inserted via a blood vesselin the groin and is threaded through it with the help of a thin tube called catheter.
