How is a Hole in the Heart Treated?
Writer: Prof. Dr. Yavuz Besogul
Cardiac perforation is a condition that occurs when the wall between the atria or the wall between the ventricles does not completely close in the heart. It may be noticed after birth or during childhood, or it may not be noticed for many years. It may manifest itself with symptoms such as shortness of breath and palpitations in the 40s. Atrial septal defect (ASD) describes the hole between the two atria; Ventricular septal defect (VSD) refers to the hole between the two ventricles.
Heart Hole Treatment
Heart hole treatment is performed with minimally invasive surgery, by entering through small incisions from the armpit, under the breast, and from the side edge of the chest, and repairing the heart hole. The hole is closed by stitching or patching.
Thanks to heart hole surgery, the patient gets rid of his complaints and continues his life comfortably.
