Paediatric And Fetal Cardiology

Paediatric and Foetal Cardiology is a field of medicine related to the treatment of heart diseases in the unborn, growing and developing children. Paediatric cardiologists have a thorough understanding of general paediatrics along with an expertise in heart diseases. In order to provide all-round patient care, Paediatric cardiologists treat arrhythmias (variations in heartbeat rhythm), congenital heart diseases (present at birth) and disturbances of circulatory function. They work with a wide range of specialists as a part of a multidisciplinary team to examine and treat patients more effectively.

Fortis Escorts is the only hospital with a Specialized Multi-Disciplinary Team of Paediatric Cardiologists. Being a single specialty hospital, Fortis Escorts Heart Institute works single-mindedly towards providing the best to heart patients. In the private sector Fortis Escorts Heart Institute is the only hospital with a specialized multi-disciplinary team of Paediatric Cardiologists, Paediatric Surgeons, Anaesthesiologists and Paediatric Intensivists who work only towards child cardiac care. This highly trained team is vastly experienced and has pioneered several cardiac techniques for children. The department has produced results that are comparable to the best in the world.The department does extensive echocardiographic work on children and is one of the rare centres that feels confident in operating the child based on the echocardiographic evaluation alone. Cardiac defects in foetal life (unborn child) are also diagnosed using specialized echocardiography techniques.

Diagnostics:

Angiography: Also known as arteriography, it is a medical imaging technique done to provide better visuals of the inside of blood vessels and organs of the body, with specific focus on the arteries, veins, and the heart chambers.

Foetal Echocardiogram:This test is similar to an ultrasound and allows the doctor to get a better visual and understanding of the structure and functioning of your unborn child's heart. It's usually done in the second trimester, between weeks 18 to 24. It involves the use of sound waves that echo off the structures of the foetus' heart providing a better visual of its structure.

Surgical:

Repairing and Treating birth defects in the heart of children and adults.

Non Surgical:

Detection of heart diseases in children and adults (Paediatric cardiology), including babies still in the womb of the mother (Foetal Echocardiography).
