Such procedures are known as valvuloplasty. In short Valvuloplasty is the widening of a stenotic valve using a balloon catheter. Valvuloplasty is mainly performed for stenosed aortic...

  • Vascular Surgeries

    Arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels form the vascular system of our body and vascular surgery is a specialty dealing with diseases affecting the vascular system The diseases affecting our vascular system involve the obstruction in the blood flow due to blockages (aneurysms) in the vessels. The minor blockages do not cause symptoms but the blockages in the...

  • VSD Closures

    A ventricular septal defect (VSD) is an opening or hole in the wall that separates the two lower chambers of the heart. This wall is the ventricular septum. The hole causes oxygen-rich blood to leak from the left side of the heart to the right side. This causes extra work for the right side of the heart, since more blood than necessary is flowing through the...
