Ram Mangal Heart Foundation – Truncus Arteriosus Surgery Center
Truncus arteriosus is a rare disease that happens when the aorta, coronary arteries, and pulmonary artery all come out of one simple case. The disease may be very easy, or very difficult. In all cases, it needs open-heart surgery to repair the fault.
Repair is normally done in the first few days or weeks of the kid’s life. The pulmonary arteries are isolated from the aortic trunk, and any holes are patched. Normally, kids also have a ventricular septal defect, and that is also closed. A link is then placed between the right ventricle and the pulmonary arteries.
Most kids need 1 or 2 more operations as they grow. Dr. Ranjit Jagtap provides Best Heart surgery for Truncus Arteriosus, He is the leading heart surgeon in Pune.
