Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Surgery treatments abroad Coronary artery disease (CAD) is one of the most common heart disease conditions and happens when cholesterol and other materials build up in the artery walls, narrowing the artery and reducing the blood supply to the heart. This leads to chest pain and in the worse cases to a stroke, which can damage the patient life quality or have even more serious consequences. One way to treat this condition is to provide the blood a new way

Heart Valve replacement is a medical procedure to substitute one or more of the heart valves damaged, or affected by a disease. The process is done as an alternative to valve repair. In conditions when valve repair or catheter-based procedures become nonviable, the cardiologist may propose undergoing the valve replacement surgery. During the procedure, your cardio-surgeon detaches the heart valve and restores it with a mechanical one or one made from cow, pig or human heart tissue (biological ti

Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) Closure treatments abroad  Ventricular septal defect (VSD), also referred to as a hole in the heart, is a congenital heart defect that causes blood to flow from the left to the right ventricle, which makes the heart have to work harder. In the cases whereby the hole is small, it may close by itself and surgery is not usually required. The baby's heart will need to be checked regularly in order to monitor the defect and symptoms while awaiting its cl

Surgery for Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) treatments abroad  Tetralogy of Fallot is a rare condition caused by a combination of four heart defects that are present at birth (congenital). These defects, which affect the structure of the heart, cause oxygen-poor blood to flow out of the heart and to the rest of the body. Infants and children with tetralogy of Fallot usually have blue-tinged skin because their blood doesn't carry enough oxygen.

The most common type of heart surgery for adults is coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). During CABG, a healthy artery or vein from the body is connected, or grafted, to a blocked coronary (heart) artery. The grafted artery or vein bypasses (that is, goes around) the blocked portion of the coronary artery. This creates a new path for oxygen-rich blood to flow to the heart muscle. CABG can relieve chest pain and may lower your risk of having a heart attack. Doctors also use heart surgery to

Coronary Steal Treatment Abroad Coronary steal is a phenomenon where an alteration of circulation patterns leads to a reduction in the blood flow directed to the coronary circulation. It is caused when there is narrowing of the coronary arteries and a coronary vasodilator is used, stealing blood away from those parts of the heart. This happens as a result of the narrowed coronary arteries being always maximally dilated to compensate for the decreased upstream blood supply.

Diastolic Heart Failure Treatment Abroad If you have diastolic heart failure, your left ventricle has become stiffer than normal. Because of that, your heart can't relax the way it should. When it pumps, it can't fill up with blood as it's supposed to. Because there's less blood in the ventricle, less blood is pumped out to your body.

Diastolic Heart Failure Treatment treatments abroad Duroziez’s disease is a congenital variant of mitral stenosis. In this disease there is an increase in pressure and volume of blood in the left chamber of the heart. This increases the size of left heart chamber as a result there is an abnormal heart beat leading to the diminished pumping function of the heart. Such abnormality in the heart may lead to heart failure. Formation of blood clots may occur in the left chamber (left

Cardiac Amyloidosis Treatment Abroad, Amyloid deposits in the heart can make the walls of the heart muscle stiff. They can also make the heart muscle weaker and affect the electrical rhythm of the heart. This condition can cause less blood to flow to your heart. Eventually, your heart will no longer be able to pump normally. If amyloidosis affects your heart, you may have: Shortness of breath with light activity An irregular heartbeat Signs of heart failure, including swelling of the feet

The Blalock-Taussig (BT) shunt mimics the role of the ductus arteriosus, meaning it allows blood to flow from a major artery through a connection to the pulmonary artery. Not only does this allow more blood to
