Treatment of Congenital heart disease
Posted in 2014

The treatment for a congenital heart defect depends on the type and severity of the defect. Some babies have mild heart defects that heal on their own with time. Others may have severe defects that require extensive treatment. In these cases, treatment may include the following:


There are various medications that can help the heart work more efficiently. Some can also be used to prevent blood clots from forming or to control an irregular heartbeat.

Implantable Heart Devices

Some of the complications associated with congenital heart defects can be prevented with the use of certain devices, including pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). A pacemaker can help regulate an abnormal heart rate, and an ICD may correct life-threatening irregular heartbeats.

Catheter Procedures

Catheterization techniques allow doctors to repair certain congenital heart defects without surgically opening the chest and heart. During these procedures, the doctor will insert a thin tube into a vein in the leg and guide it up to the heart. Once the catheter is in the correct position, the doctor will use small tools threaded through the catheter to correct the defect.

Open-Heart Surgery

This type of surgery may be needed if catheter procedures aren't enough to repair a congenital heart defect. A surgeon may perform open-heart surgery to close holes in the heart, repair heart valves, or widen blood vessels.

Heart Transplant

In the rare cases in which a congenital heart defect is too complex to fix, a heart transplant may be needed. During this procedure, the child's heart is replaced with a healthy heart from a donor.
I have personally seen a child with congenital heart  problem and expired below three years.  It is very painful to their parents.
My advise
1...   The child born with congenital heart problems will have less life span.
2...   If the child has blood pressure in his childhood it may lead to heart attack as his young age.
3...   When mother follows healthy habits before birth i.e. 1..  Eating healthy food so that her digestion will not consume more oxygen so that her child receives sufficient oxygen.  2.. Drinking sufficient water will help to flow blood and oxygen though out the body.
4..    When blood and oxygen flows in child's body freely the child may not have congenital heart problem
5..... I advise every pregnant woman to take healthy food and drink sufficient water to have a healthy child without congenital heart problems
