Francis Bendicta, Nairobi from Kenya shares his experience about her One year Old daughter’s miraculous recovery from complex valve defect
We had twins born about 2 months ago, a boy and a girl. Just a few hours after birth, the doctor broke the news to us that she suspected one of the children to be suffering from a heart condition. This was earth shattering for us and we decided to put all our resources to give our new born a chance to live. We didn’t have very sophisticated technology that was needed for this surgery back home in Nairobi and we didn’t know how to go ahead. That’s when our close relative recommended looking for options in India as there such surgeries are performed using world class technology at lesser costs.
We came across Safemedtrip website while surfing the net and that was the turning point for us. Right from visa, legal papers, air tickets, hotel accommodation in India to the right hospital and the best doctors in field of paediatrics, Safemedtrip arranged all of this. The whole admission procedure, pre surgery tests and hospital care was done so professionally that we did not face any hurdle along the way. We knew our child was in the best hands. The heart surgery was absolutely successful and my child is now back to normal and once again I say thank you and God bless you.Refer a Patient
Why you should choose India for Affordable, World Class Heart Surgery, Cardiac Care ?
Most Advanced Pediatric Cardiac Treatment Options available in India
A successful cardiac surgery in children requires an expert medical team – doctors, nurses, and other support staff – who are experienced in such surgeries, can promptly recognize problems and emerging side effects, and know how to react swiftly and properly if problems do arise. A cardiac surgery program will also recognize the importance of providing patients and their families with emotional and psychological support before, during and after the surgery, and will make personal and other support systems readily available to families for this purpose. We make this difficult journey easy for the patient and his relatives.
Paediatric surgeries deal with the correction of abnormalities present in the heart of new-borns, infants or children. Most of the defects are present since birth (congenital). They all come under the category of congenital heart defects. Some are present since birth but cause symptoms after a few years and some cause symptoms immediately after birth.Request a Call Back
ASD- Atrial Septal Defect refers to a hole in the septum that separates the right and left atrium. This results in mixing of pure and impure blood. It is corrected by open heart surgery. The sternum is split in the midline. Arterial and double venous (superior vena cava and inferior vena cava) vessels are clamped. By applying cardiopulmonary bypass (heart lung machine), the aorta is clamped, and the heart is temporarily paralyzed by a solution. The right atrium is opened and the defect is sutured.
Percutaneous Closure Devices for ASD Repair
At our world class hospitals in India, minimally invasive approaches to the repair of ASD have now been developed.Transcatheter closure is a widespread technique used to treat secundum atrial septal defects (ASDs).
When compared to surgery, it provides a less invasive approach with quicker recovery and reduced physical and psychological impact. Nowadays, almost 85–90% of all secundum ASD can be closed by using a transcatheter approach.Get Estimate
It is the most common congenital heart defect in children. The defect results in mixing of pure and impure blood. It comprises a combination of four defects- right ventricular hypertrophy (increase in the size of right lower chamber), ventricular septal defect (whole in the wall between the two ventricles), abnormal position of aorta (aorta is on right side of heart instead of the left) and pulmonary stenosis (narrowing of pulmonary valve opening which prevents outflow of blood from right ventricle).Get Estimate
Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD)
Ventricular Septal Defect – is a hole in the wall between the right and left ventricles of the heart. This abnormality usually develops before birth and is found most often in infants. A ventricular septal defect can allow newly oxygenated blood to flow from the left ventricle, where the pressures are higher, to the right ventricle, where the pressures are lower, and mix with un-oxygenated blood.
Advanced Surgical Options for VSD Treatment:
- Intra-Cardiac Technique – the patient is attached to an external heart-lung machine (which performs circulatory and respiratory function during surgery). It is an open heart surgery in which the patient is placed under general anaesthesia. The rib cage is cut open in the midline. The heart is directly accessed and the defect is sutured.
- Trans- Catheter Technique – Surgical instruments are passed through the catheter which is inserted in the femoral artery at the groin. The catheter is slowly guided up towards the point of defect to close it. It is a successful surgery. With the separation of ventricles normal circulation resumes. The enlarged heart comes back to normal size. Pulmonary artery pressure reduces. The child’s growth fastens. The prognosis is excellent.Get Estimate
Cardiac Catheterization for Congenital Heart Defects in Children
Pediatric Heart Specialists at our network hospitals in India can diagnose and repair some types of congenital heart defects using cardiac catheterization, a minimally invasive procedure. Following advanced methods are routinely used :-
- Balloon Atrial Septostomy
- Balloon Valvuloplasty

Mary Chinye from Nigeria – Paediatric Cardiac Surgery
It was a matter of life for my young daughter who was diagnosed with Valve defect at just One year age. Finding safemedtrip.com has been a blessing for us. Every member of staff works as a dedicated member of a team to assist recovery. We were somewhat nervous about coming to India as we have never visited before, but we were never left unsure or uncomfortable about anything from the time we were picked up at the airport.
The hospital in India is overall the very best we have experienced. The level of care is exceptional. The doctors, nurses and medical facilities and the room facilities were equally excellent. Always we had good communication about what was happening at any time and what would happen next left us feeling in control. A special word of thanks all at SafeMedtrip who worked hard and motivated us to take the decision and we are glad all is well now. Thanks you all and God bless you !Refer a Patient
