Dr. Prashanth Shah, Paediatric Cardiologist, Kauvery Hospital talks about the various types of cardiac complications in children. 80 to 90% of patients lead a normal life after surgery. The timing of surgery and good teamwork is important. There is an option of minimally invasive cardiac surgery so that no apparent scars are visible. In Kauvery we have performed more than 2000 complex surgeries successfully. Frequent cold and cough, low weight gain and bluish colour of tongue are symptoms to look for in babies with cardiac problems.
