Congenital Heart Defects: Is Your New-Born Suffering From A Rare Heart Disease?

Congenital Heart Defects: Is Your New-Born Suffering From A Rare Heart Disease?

Parents go to extra length to ensure the safety of their kids, they take all possible precautions for their healthier future and it would be really devastating for parents who come to know that their babies might be suffering from some kind of life-threatening heart defects. However, sometimes life presents situations that we can’t help, one such health condition is Aortopulmonary window defect.

As per the cardiac experts at Metro Heart Institute the Aortopulmonary Window is a rare congenital heart disease with an incidence of 0.1%-0.2% of all cardiac malformation. In this condition Aorta which carries oxygenated blood to the body and Pulmonary trunk which carries deoxygenated blood to lungs for oxygenation are separate tubes. But, in the Aortopulmonary window, there is an abnormal window or connection which causes mixing of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood leading to serious health complications. 

This defect is a congenital defect present at the time of birth, there is no specific reason for these kinds of defects, they may be caused by a myriad of factors including but not restricted to genetic disorders, socioeconomic situations, geographical implications, etc. So there are no specific preventive measures to ensure protection from these kinds of defects. However, early diagnosis and timely surgeries can help patients suffering from this condition lead a healthy and normal life post-recovery.

There are no visible signs that can indicate Aortopulmonary window defect, moreover, the small defects may be completely asymptomatic. However, the complications that arise due to the defect should be taken into consideration and patients should go for extensive diagnosis to detect Aortopulmonary window or other comorbidities at the best multispeciality hospital in India.

Some indications of Aortopulmonary window include:

·         Poor appetite / poor weight gain

·         Delayed growth

·         Heart failure

·         Irritability

·         Rapid breathing and heartbeat

·         Respiratory infections

Irrespective of the above-mentioned complications it is advisable to go for a complete checkup for timely diagnosis of any health complications at the best cardiology hospital in Delhi NCR.

The aortopulmonary window can be diagnosed by using the below-mentioned procedures:

·         Physical examination using a stethoscope to hear audible murmur to check any leakage or slushing of blood in the heart.

·         Two-dimensional echocardiography

·         Chest X-Ray- The conventional radiography method

Cardiac MRI- this is done to get a detailed picture of your heart for proper analysis by experts at the best cardiology hospital in Noida.

Cardiac Catheterization- Cardiac catheterization is a specialized procedure in which a catheter (a long, flexible tube) is inserted into a vein or artery and guided into the heart. These kinds of procedures are regularly performed at Top Heart Hospitals in Noida.

Treatment of Aortopulmonary Window

Surgery is the only option for the treatment of Aortopulmonary window irrespective of the size of the defect. Cardiac Surgeons at best cardiology hospital in Delhi NCR  describe this surgery as patching or closure of the window between the aorta and the pulmonary artery with a patch. This surgery should be done at the latest once the condition has been diagnosed as the delay in the surgery can lead to serious health complications and even fatalities in some cases. 

The Aortopulmonary window has been classified into three types- type I, II and III depending upon the location of the defect. Out of these, type II which occurs in the distal part of the aortopulmonary septum adjacent to the right pulmonary artery is considered most difficult to operate.

As it is stated in the medical community ‘Rare diseases are rarely cured’ as they require strenuous efforts and exceptional skills for these procedures. We at the metro group of hospitals has an exceptional team under the superior guidance of world-renowned interventional cardiologist Dr. Purshotam Lal, who along with his team has performed thousands of successful procedures. We at Metro group of hospitals, one of the best cardiology hospitals in Delhi NCR are committed to providing the best treatment to our patients with the utmost care and thousands of smiles are a testimonial to that.
