Paediatric Cardiac Surgery

Paediatric Cardiac Surgery deals with heart conditions in babies (including unborn babies), children and adolescents. Structural, functional, and rhythm-related problems of the heart are dealt with a high degree of success.

Some of the procedures performed by our Paediatric Cardiac Surgeons include:

  • Atrial Septal Defect -A defect between the heart's two upper chambers called the atria
  • Ventricular Septal Defect -A defect between the heart's two lower chambers called the ventricles.
  • Coarctation of Aorta - a birth defect that results in the narrowing of part of the aorta (the major artery leading out of the heart).
  • Patent Ductus Arteriosus - an abnormal circulation of blood between two of the major arteries of the heart - the aorta and the pulmonary artery.
  • Tetralogy of Fallot - a common cause of "blue babies".
