How can I find treatment of Coarctation Of The Aorta?

An atrial septal defect is a space in the wall between your heart's two upper chambers (atria). The disorder is present from birth (congenital). Small flaws may be discovered by chance and never cause a problem. Some minor atrial septal defects close during childhood or infancy. The hole increases the flow of blood through the lungs. A significant, long-standing atrial septal defect can harm the heart and lungs. To avoid complications, atrial septal defects may necessitate surgery or device closure.

Surgery was the only treatment option for aortic coarctation twenty years ago. Although surgery is still considered the gold standard, adults with this condition can also benefit from balloon angioplasty, stenting, stent grafting, or hybrid repair (a combination of open surgery and stent grafts). The individual's overall health determines treatment, the size and severity of the coarctation, any associated aneurysm or valve disease, and its precise location.

  • End-to-end anastomosis
  • Surgery
  • If the coarctation is small, the surgeon may remove the narrowed section of the aorta and re-join the two ends. This is known as end-to-end anastomosis, and it is frequently the best surgical option for treating the condition.
  • Other surgical options include bypass surgery, in which a graft is stitched onto the aorta to divert blood around the defect. A bypass can be performed in conjunction with a valve repair or replacement procedure in patients with valve disease.
