Recently I have get a call from Mr. Hainik living in Algeria, asking that my 6 months baby boy is having hole in his heart which is called by doctor Atrial septal defect. I would like to know is there any another approach to close the opening without having open heart surgical procedure. Can ASD/ VSD closure can be done just by medical management? An atrial septal deformity is a hole in heart which separates the two upper chambers medically called as the right atrium and left atrium. We can see the hole in the different part of the septum. Now a days doctors are practicing to close the hole without the open heart surgery but it’s totally depend on the location of the hole in heart. The hole in secundum artrial septal and patent foramen ovale (PFO) can be close without the surgical procedure. This procedure is done in the cardiac catheterization lab without surgery. But we have to know that all the atrial defect in the child can’t handle without the surgery. The Non-surgical procedure to close the hole of heart is by implanting a device into the hole to "plug it up" from inside the heart. This is practiced by passing a little tube (catheter) from a vein situated in the crotch and up into the heart. The methodology is performed in the Cath-Lab and doesn't require open heart procedure. Many medical devices are available for this procedure and the results

During the any type of previous surgery, can be a cause for cardiac defects, as sometimes the electrical system of heart didn’t work properly 2.

Checklist-of-Safe-Surgery

As a Medical Tourism professional over a decade, I have witnessed thousands of complicated and non-complicated surgeries in India and very proud to say that 99.9% surgeries are well-performed and safe. This is because doctors take a strict precaution PRE and POST surgeries. I have seen that nursing staffs and doctors are more careful about patient post-surgery than the pre-surgery to minimize the infection ratio. They follow the guideline set by WHO to improve medical communication and reduce medical complication and negligence during the surgery. Most of the hospitals have no verbal communication policy except emergency. WHO suggests that failed communication in Operation Theatre mostly leads to delay medical recovery and/or infection.

  India is considered one of the cost effective medical tourism destination but I would like to add that cost is very least reason for the growth of Indian medical tourism. No patient is ready to do surgery with high risk what so ever cost is. They are only bothered about quality and safety. Of course it is best if quality and safety comes with minimum budget.
