ASD/VSD/PDA/Collateral Device Closures

Atrial Septal Defect (ASD), Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) and Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDS) are congenital birth defects diagnosed in children but can be found in grownups at a later stage. Under these conditions, the blood flows from left side of the heart to the right, mounting a lot of workload on the heart.

Advanced closure methods with the help of catheters also known as device closures come in handy in treating these life-threatening ailments without going for an open-heart surgery. In this technique, a catheter gets inserted via groin and then guided to the heart. After reaching the defect, an umbrella like device gets placed on the defect. The device not only corrects the blood flow but closes the defect over a period of time.
