Factors that affect PDA Device Closure cost in India
An important expense when it comes to your PDA Device Closure treatment is going to be your Cardiologist's fees. IndiCure recommends only experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering successful heart surgeries. Although the charges may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, you can be completely assured of being in safe and experienced hands when you choose heart surgery in India with IndiCure.
Type of Surgical Approach
With the hopes of improving patient care, new techniques and technologies are often introduced to the surgical process. Such innovative advancements in the surgical approach can increase costs.
Having your PDA Device Closure procedure in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility also affects the initial quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be affordable.
The surgery-related expenses include the pre- and post-surgical expenses.

See How it Works
What is PDA Device Closure?
A PDA is a hole in the aorta that isn't closed.
The fetus's blood does not need to get to the lungs to get oxygenated before birth. The ductus arteriosus is a hole in the heart that allows blood to bypass the circulatory system and go straight to the lungs. However, the blood must get oxygen in the lungs when the infant is born, and this hole is meant to close. If the ductus arteriosus remains open (or patent), blood may bypass this crucial step in the circulation process. The patent ductus arteriosus is the name for the open hole (PDA).
Because the heart and lungs do not have to work as hard when the PDA is tiny, it will not cause symptoms. A specific sort of murmur could be the only abnormal finding (noise heard with a stethoscope).
The infant may breathe faster and harder than usual if the PDA is big. Infants may struggle to eat and grow at a typical pace. Symptoms may not appear for several weeks after the baby is born. Because more blood than usual is pumped into the lungs, high pressure might develop in the blood vessels. The blood arteries in the lungs may be permanently damaged as a result of this over time.
The PDA may usually be closed by introducing catheters (long thin tubes) into the blood vessels in the leg to reach the heart and the PDA, and then placing a coil or other device into the PDA like a plug through the catheters.
When is PDA Device Closure required?
Any infant, either full-term or preterm, who has a hemodynamically severe PDA that needs to be closed.
How is PDA Device Closure done?
The transcatheter PDA closure will take approximately 45 minutes and is done under general anesthesia.
A catheter will be inserted into the femoral vein in the baby's groin by the cardiologist. They'll use X-ray imaging to route the catheter to the heart and find the PDA. They'll next put an occlusion device into the baby's PDA through the catheter.
This device will block the vessel and prevent blood from going into the lungs after it is in place. Finally, doctors will remove the catheter with care and cover the groin access point with a small bandage.
What is the Recovery after PDA Device Closure like?
Most patients with a modest unrepaired PDA or a treated PDA don't need to take any additional precautions and can go about their daily lives without risk. Even if you don't have pulmonary hypertension, your cardiologist may advise you to limit your physical activity for a short time after surgery or catheter closure.
What Results Can I Expect from PDA Device Closure?
The long-term outlook is excellent, and usually no medicines and no additional surgery or catheterization are needed.

My dad was advised cardiac bypass surgery in CA, USA, but because of being uninsured, such high costs of cardiac surgery in the US, we were really not able to afford it. IndiCure has actually helped in saving my dad's life and we are really grateful for the same. I am falling short of words, to express my gratitude to the surgeon who was very helpful and courteous. Will recommend IndiCure to everyone!
John Smith ( California, United States of America )
Procedure : CABG surgery
My son 4 years old was born with a heart defect which the doctors said needed a highly specialized surgery. Our cardiologist highly spoke of Indian surgeons and suggested us to go to India and in hindsight now I realize how right he was! My son was successfully operated and I must thank Indicure for the excellent arrangements they made.
Patricia Munene ( Ethiopia )

I would like to thank IndiCure for all they have done for my mother and me. Without IndiCure our stay would have been very difficult. They made our journey to India very pleasant and were always very attentive to our needs. I would recommend IndiCure to anybody wanting to come to India for medical treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions
The ductus arteriosus generally closes two or three days after delivery. The opening takes longer to close in preterm newborns. A patent ductus arteriosus occurs when the link remains open.
As your child grows, a small patent ductus arteriosus may close on its own. A PDA that causes symptoms will require medication or surgery to treat. The cardiologist will regularly check to see if the PDA is closing on its own or needs an intervention. To avoid lung complications, if a PDA does not shut on its own, it will need to be repaired.
A PDA is termed small if it is less than 1.5 mm, moderate if it is between 1.5 and 3 mm, and large if it surpasses 3 mm.
Transcatheter PDA closure is a fairly safe technique with rare side effects. Impingement on adjacent structures, device dislodgement, and soreness/bruising at the groin site where the vessels were accessed to perform the surgery are possible risks, though happen rarely.
When you don't receive enough oxygen, the skin goes blue (cyanosis)
Feeling of exhaustion or tiredness
Breathing that is fast or hard.
Feeding difficulties or exhaustion while feeding
Weight gain is poor.
Trouble doing activities in older children.
One of the most common congenital heart abnormalities is patent ductus arteriosus. In the United States, over 3,000 newborns are diagnosed with PDA each year. PDA is more common in premature babies, and it affects girls twice as much as it does boys.

Both of us were very pleased with the professional care provided to us from the first email to enquiry to the moment we stepped foot in India. We have never received such wonderful hospitality and always attending to our needs. We would both certainly recommend Indicure for any treatments and/or surgeries. We have been utterly amazed at what India has to offer and will definitely visit again.

Thank you IniCure Health Team for all the support you provided my father. You deserve 6 stars for customer service. Your team was instrumental in selling up my Dad with Dr. Babu and other healthcare team. Your Professionalism is exceptional. You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before. Dr. Babu successfully operated my Dad and we are so grateful for that.
Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.
Steve Gofast recommends IndiCure Health Tours. May 21, 2019
The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
