Pediatric Heart Diseases → Surgery and Transplant

Surgeons have tried for centuries to help patients suffering from heart disease or trauma, but only recently has their desire been matched by knowledge, experience and technology.  Recently many new and important reports about advances in cardiac surgery have been presented. With respect to congenital heart disease, coronary artery diseases, Valvular disease, novel surgeries, atrial fibrillation and therapeutics are introduced according to recent report. The related subtopics are medical apparatus an instruments are presented as septation of single ventricle with double-patch procedure, anatomical repair for Epstein’s anomaly, gene therapy, stem cell therapy, trans-catheter aortic valve implantation, minimally invasive heart bypass surgery, radiofrequency ablation, artificial pacemaker, cardiac rehabilitation and valve-sparing aortic root replacement.

A heart transplant is a surgical procedure performed to remove the diseased heart from a patient and replace it with a healthy one from an organ donor. In order to remove the heart from the donor, two or more doctors must declare the donor brain-dead. Before a person can be put on a waiting list for a heart transplant, a doctor makes the determination that this is the best treatment option available for the person's heart failure.  The most common reason is that one or both ventricles have aren't functioning properly and severe heart failure is present. Ventricular failure can happen in many forms of congenital heart disease, but is more common in congenital defects with a single ventricle or if long-standing valve obstruction or leakage has led to irreversible heart failure.
