Pediatric cardiology

As one of India's top hospitals, Aster Hospitals are well-equipped with the most recent medical technology, infrastructure, and equipment.

Pediatric electrocardiogram ( ECG or EKG)

It is a simple and painless test used to record the electrical activity of a child's heart. Pediatric ECG helps identify irregular heart rhythms, abnormal electrical conduction, and potential heart conditions. This assists doctors in diagnosing and managing cardiac issues in childre

Cardiac catheterization

Cardiac catheterization in pediatrics is a minimally invasive procedure to diagnose and treat various heart conditions. This allows pediatric doctors to perform interventions such as repairing heart defects, widening narrowed blood vessels, closing abnormal openings, and measuring pressures within the heart and blood vessels.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

MRI is a valuable diagnostic tool in pediatric cardiology. Pediatric cardiac MRI is particularly useful for evaluating complex congenital heart defects, assessing heart muscle function, and planning treatments.

The pediatric cardiac care team at Aster Hospitals offers interdisciplinary, evidence-based care and advanced therapy for infant and child heart problems. Pediatric cardiac surgeons and interventional cardiologists with extensive experience are in charge of the team. Pediatric cardiac surgeons operate on kids' hearts, fixing structural issues and congenital defects. Here are some treatments available at the Aster pediatric cardiac department.

PDA device closure

A patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a hole in the heart's two main blood arteries. It can be treated with a minimally invasive procedure called PDA device closure.

Coarctation stenting

This disorder causes the aorta, the major artery that distributes blood from the heart to the rest of the body, to constrict. A stent is placed during this surgery to expand the constrictive area of the aorta and improve blood flow.

ASD device closure

Atrial septal defects (ASDs) can be treated with a minimally invasive procedure called ASD device closure. This method uses an innovative device to close the hole without performing open heart surgery.

VSD device closure

Ventricular septal defects (VSDs) are holes in the septum, the wall separating the heart's two ventricles. A minimally invasive procedure called VSD device closure helps fix this.

Balloon valvotomy

A surgical procedure called balloon valvotomy treats heart valve disorders, including aortic or pulmonary valve stenosis. It is considered less invasive than other conventional heart surgeries.

Transcatheter closure of sinus venosus ASD

This is another minimally invasive method that aids in treating sinus venosus ASD. The condition is characterized by an abnormal opening between the heart's upper chambers (atria). During this surgery, a stent is released via a catheter, effectively sealing ASD.

Transcatheter valve implantation

A defective or damaged aortic and pulmonary valve is replaced during this minimally invasive treatment.

Paravalvular leak closure

There may occasionally be minute gaps or leaks around the borders of a prosthetic heart valve surgery. A minimally invasive surgery called a paravalvular leak closure is performed to resolve valve leaks.

Pediatric pacemaker and ICD implantation and management

This entails surgically implanting devices to control cardiac rhythms. Pediatric cardiologists carry out this procedure for conditions such as bradycardia (slow heart rate) or certain arrhythmias.

Pediatric electrophysiology and arrhythmia services

These specialized medical procedures identify and treat children's cardiac rhythm problems, called arrhythmias. Pediatric electrophysiology may include techniques like cardiac mapping and electrophysiological studies (EPS) to locate aberrant electrical impulses.

FAQs

Want to find out more about the treatment? The answer to your questions can be found below.

Who is a Paediatrician?

 A paediatrician is a medical doctor who specializes in the care of children upto 14 years. Paediatricians have undergone special training in the health and illnesses of infants, teens, and young adults.

Why is immunization important for a child's health?

Immunization is a simple and effective way of protecting children from serious diseases. Vaccines work by triggering the immune system to fight against certain diseases. If a vaccinated person comes in contact with these diseases, their immune system is able to respond more effectively, preventing the disease.

Why should I come to Aster MIMS hospital for Paediatric treatment?

Aster MIMS Hospital has a wide range of paediatric services and treatments that are available under one roof. We believe that children deserve to be treated with understanding and care and to receive the highest quality health care. Aster Mims is specifically designed to take care of the whole child through a family-centred approach to medicine.

What is early heart disease called?

Coronary artery disease, also called CAD, is a condition that affects your heart. It is the most common heart disease in the United States. CAD happens when coronary arteries struggle to supply the heart with enough blood, oxygen and nutrients. Cholesterol deposits, or plaques, are almost always to blame.

Can all congenital heart defects be treated in children?

Yes, most congenital heart defects can be treated effectively in children. However, the treatment plan depends on the type and severity of the defect. Some defects may require surgical correction, while others can be managed with less invasive procedures or medical interventions.

However, not all congenital heart defects can be cured entirely. Advances in medical technology and surgical techniques have greatly improved the outcomes for children with such congenital heart defects.

What is the importance of early intervention in pediatric cardiac care?

Early intervention in pediatric cardiac care is crucial because it can lead to better outcomes. Early intervention can minimize long-term damage to the heart and prevent developmental delays. It can also reduce the risk of serious complications and improve the child's overall health and well-being.

How often should children with heart conditions have check-ups?

The frequency of check-ups for children with heart conditions varies depending on the specific condition, severity, and treatment plan. In general, children with heart conditions may need more frequent follow-up visits initially after diagnosis or surgery. As their condition stabilizes, the frequency of check-ups may decrease. However, regular monitoring is essential to catch any changes or issues early.

How long does it take to recover after pediatric heart surgery?

The recovery time after pediatric heart surgery can vary significantly based on several factors, such as:

  • Type of surgery
  • Age of the child
  • Overall health
  • Surgical approach

How often should my child see the paediatrician?

Your child should not only see the paediatrician for an illness. It is also important to schedule well-child-care exams regularly, beginning in infancy. Also called well-care visits or check-ups, these routine examinations provide the best opportunity for the doctor to observe the progress of your child's physical and mental growth and development; to counsel and teach parents; to detect problems through screening tests; to provide immunizations, and to get to know one another.

Are vaccines safe?

Vaccines are extremely safe and serious side effects are rare. Almost all sickness or discomfort after vaccination is minor and temporary, such as soreness at the injection site or mild fever.

What is the most common heart disease in children?

The most common type of heart defect is a ventricular septal defect (VSD).

What are the common heart conditions in children?

The most common heart conditions in children include:

  • Congenital heart defects
  • Cardiac arrhythmias
  • Acquired heart diseases

Are there non-surgical treatments for pediatric heart conditions?

Yes, there are several non-surgical treatments available for many pediatric heart conditions. Depending on the specific condition, its severity, and the child's overall health, non-surgical treatments can include:

  • Medications
  • Lifestyle modifications
  • Catheter-based interventions
  • Implantable devices
  • Electrophysiology procedures
  • Medical monitoring

Can children with heart conditions lead normal lives?

Yes. Most children with treated or managed heart conditions can lead active and normal lives. With proper medical care, lifestyle modifications, and regular monitoring, these children can engage in regular activities, like attending school, participating in sports (as advised by their healthcare team), and enjoying a good quality of life.

What is pediatric cardiac rehabilitation?

Pediatric cardiac rehabilitation involves structured exercise programs, education, and support for children undergoing heart surgeries or procedures. This helps them recover, regain strength, improve cardiovascular fitness, and adapt to their changed heart health. Healthcare professionals supervise the rehabilitation process and aim to enhance the child's overall well-being.
