Medical Breakthroughs in Pediatric Cardiac Surgeries at Wockhardt Hospitals

Nobody wanted to treat a 12 year old girl with a congenital cardiac defect of criss-crossed ventricles and arteries. Medication could only do much and a temporary fix of the valves would only buy time.However our clinical team at Wockhardt Hospitals wanted more for that girl,we wanted to give back her life.It took a whole year of tests and scans and high risk surgeries to re arrange the girls heart; but in the end we challenged the odds and emerged successful.

A 13-year-old girl from Coorg went through a series of surgeries to correct the wrong positioning of ventricles and arteries in her heart. Congenital cardiac defects of this nature, called congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, affects not more than one per cent of children born with heart problems. She also had situs inversus, which means all her organs are positioned on the opposite side, including the heart.

In the latest and the most complicated surgery so far, this second child of a farmer couple underwent the double switch operation after left ventricular ‘retraining’ at Wockhardt Hospitals. The pumping chambers and the great arteries, both are inter-changed. That has set right the anomalies in the circulation in her body.The left-sided organs are in the right and vice versa. Her heart is on the right side.” In such patients, the risks are doubled. The heart may start failing as it cannot cope with the body’s requirement of blood circulation with swapped ventricles. Or the heart could develop blocks as the electrical systems of the heart are abnormal. Click here to know more .
