Atrial septal defect (ASD) and Ventricular Septal Defects (VSD) are heart abnormalities generally present from birth (congenital heart defects). These are abnormal openings in the heart that didn’t close during development or after birth.

Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) – It is an abnormal connection between two major arteries of the heart named the Aorta and Pulmonary artery. Depending on the size of the opening, it is not uncommon for these conditions to go for many years or decades without being noticed. However, in some cases, they can cause stress on the heart and result in symptoms such as breathlessness, stroke, or abnormal heart enlargement.

All these defects allow blood to pass from the left side of the heart to the right side, which is abnormal and increases the load on the heart.

What is Device Closure Procedure?

The device closure procedure used as a reparative surgery is known as transcatheter closure, although it is done for a reparable hole and this is not the only treatment for hole closures. When compared to other surgeries, it is a less invasive surgery.

How it is performed?

  1. Dr. Kartik Bhosale has expertise in performing the device closure procedure. Before the surgery starts, a patient is administered IV and intravenous medicines are started. The person has leads attached to his chest for ECG.
  2. The person’s groin/arm area is cleaned and a plastic thin tube called a catheter will be inserted through that area. Meanwhile, the patient is given sedatives for relaxation purposes and local anesthesia, but they will be awake and conscious throughout the procedure.
  3. After the size of the hole is determined, a special catheter is administered in the arteries which carry a small metallic mesh-like closing device.
  4. This device is then fitted in the hole and then released by the catheter. This catheter is then taken out, eventually, heart tissue develops on the closure device, thus making it a part of the heart itself.

What is the cost of Device closure in Pune?
