Congenital heart disease is one of the most common types of congenital malformations in newborns. The number of infants born in our country
Congenital heart disease is one of the most common types of congenital malformations in newborns. The number of infants born in our country every year is estimated to be 150 thousand, and about 30% of them are likely to die in infancy. On Sunday, Ann yifuyuan experts successfully in 4 children with congenital heart disease surgery for one day, one of the youngest children only 8 months, weighing only 7 kg. After surgery, a few children in good condition, will usher in their heart health.
One year old baby to cure a cold heart disease
Yang this year, only one year old, after the end of surgery, the mother in the next bed closely. Yang Yang told reporters, Yang from 4 months old, often cold fever, initially thought to be pneumonia, go to the hospital for examination, was diagnosed with congenital heart disease.
"The child is so small, it is too distressed, in order to give him medical treatment, we traveled to Beijing, Shanghai, spent all their savings.
Yang mother said with tears, the family had to discuss, and so a little older children, and then save some money on the operation quickly. "This time thanks to Ann yifuyuan of doctors and nurses, the operation was successful, but also because of the new rural cooperative medical policy relief
The same day, the experts Ann yifuyuan cardiac surgery for 8 months, 1 year old Gon Freecss Lili and Junjun successfully carried out "bushing" operation.
6 hours for the 4 children
"4 children are very complex, Gon Freecss interrupted aortic arch, patent ductus arteriosus, mitral stenosis, left atrial dysplasia a variety of symptoms, several other children with ventricular septal defect, mitral valve with different degrees of dysplasia.
According to Dr. Kong Xiang, deputy director of the hospital cardiac surgery, pediatric valve surgery is different from adults, for their treatment principle is as far as possible plastic repair, rather than replacement surgery. Because the artificial heart valve on the one hand is not suitable for infants and young children the size of the shape, in addition to the growth and development of children, the effective diameter of artificial valve is not large enough, then need to re replacement. Therefore, only when the valve is damaged can not be repaired when considering replacement surgery, usually after the age of 10 to install artificial heart valve.
The younger infant heart surgery to repair is very difficult, with high operation risk and challenge, protection and operation center in muscle operation must be very fine; postoperative nursing work is also a severe test. On the day of surgery, the Department of cardiac surgery and the Department of Anesthesiology cooperate closely to establish the cardiopulmonary bypass, and to monitor the effect of the operation by using the esophageal ultrasound. 6 hours later, the operation was over. Currently, several children have come out from the intensive care unit, and gradually restore health.
Children with congenital heart disease should be treated as soon as possible
Kong Xiang remind parents, when children appear feeding difficulties, easy cold, heart murmur and other symptoms, as soon as possible as soon as possible to the regular hospital examination. If accurate diagnosis and reasonable treatment, survival rate can reach more than 95%.
It is understood that since the Department of cardiovascular surgery, Ann yifuyuan of heart surgery, has accumulated more than 5000 cases of cardiac surgery experience, rapid progress has been made in the technology, gradually formed its own features in congenital heart disease, valvular heart disease, coronary heart disease, thoracic vascular disease and minimally invasive cardiac surgery and heart disease surgical treatment of the largest center of Anhui province.
