Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital – Plano offers a full range of procedures to address adult congenital heart defects. Sometimes people don’t discover that they have a congenital heart defect until they reach adulthood. However, often patients have had a correctional procedure or otherwise received treatment for their congenital heart defect in their youth. Given the nature of many congenital heart problems, though, another procedure may be necessary to live out a full life.
The skilled specialists on our medical staff offer a number of procedures to effectively treat a wide range of congenital heart diseases:
One of the most common ways to repair congenital heart defects is ASD/PFO procedures to address openings in the interatrial septum – the wall between the left and right atria of the heart.
Baylor Scott & White Heart – Plano uses a number of different ASD/PFO closure devices and techniques available – including minimally invasive interventions – depending on the size of ASD/PFO opening, blood flow, and repair approach. Since 2010, about half of ASD/PFO procedures at our facility have been performed minimally invasively through heartport, robotic surgery, or with percutaneous techniques.
