What is a hole in the heart, and how it affects the growth of a child: –
A hole in the heart (ASD) leads to swelling of heart chambers and an increase in the pressure of the lungs. This leads to recurrent chest infections in the child with poor weight gain and growth retardation. A child with the above symptoms should be taken to a specialist doctor, and a heart checkup should be done.
If the treated early child can have a normal life like any other child.
How to avoid surgery in a child with a hole in the heart: –
Children with small hole hearts with minimal symptoms can be followed with repeat echo tests. Small holes in young children can close with time and may not require surgery.
Kids with large heart holes but good margins around the hole can have device placement like stenting.
What are different techniques of surgery, and how to minimize scar from surgery: –
Large holes in the heart with insufficient margins will always require heart surgery. There have been significant advances in techniques of heart surgery.
Heart hole surgery can be done by an old open technique with a full cut in the chest bone, and this leads to a long permanent scar on the front of the chest.
There is another technique of giving cuts under the breast, but this also leads to visible scars and sometimes hampers breast development. The New Transaxillary technique of heart surgery is revolutionary as there no scar is visible from the front, and the child recovers faster with minimal pain.
