An open-heart surgery to correct transposition of the great arteries (TGA). The defect is corrected by the surgeon on bypass by disconnecting the pulmonary and aortic vessels and moving them back into their normal position.
In addition to surgically correcting the transposition of the great arteries (TGA), the surgeon also closes the hole between the two lower pumping chambers of the heart. This operation is similar to an ASO.
This congenital defect requires open-heart surgery to close the openings between the upper and lower chambers of the heart. The surgeon then creates two valves from the one valve your child was born with.
To allow oxygen-rich blood to flow freely to organs in the lower part of the body, surgeons use various techniques to remove the narrowed part of the aorta, which is a defect often present at birth.
Performed as the last stage for patients born with a single pumping chamber which connects blood vessels from the lower body directly to the lungs to optimize oxygen levels and decrease the workload on the heart.
A procedure performed for patients born with a single pumping chamber that connects the large vein transporting blood from the upper body directly to the lungs, bypassing the heart. The temporary tube is then removed.
A procedure necessary for patients born with a single pumping chamber, which attaches a temporary tube that allows blood to travel from the heart to the lungs so the body gets more oxygen.
Open heart surgery to open up the blockage from the right pumping chamber of the heart and close existing holes. Some infants require a temporary tube supplying blood to the lungs prior to surgery.
This congenital defect requires surgery to detach the pulmonary arteries from the common artery and connect them to the right ventricle using a valve-containing tube, and a patch is used to close the ventricular septal defect.
Surgery is required to close a ventricular septal defect (VSD), an abnormal opening between the two lower, pumping chambers of the heart. The hole may be closed in a variety of ways depending on its size.
