In rare circumstances, some children are born with a heart defect or disease which, if not treated properly, can prove to be fatal. These are called Critical Congenital Heart Disease (CCHD), and they are of the following types:
1.) Aortic Valve Stenosis
It is an uncommon but serious heart defect which makes up for 5% of congenital heart disease. When aortic valve, the valve which controls the flow of blood from the left ventricle to aorta, is narrowed, this condition is called Aortic Valve Stenosis. This lowers the amount of oxygen-rich blood flowing from the heart to other organs of the body and, thus, heart muscles thicken because they have to work harder to pump blood.
2.) Coarctation of Aorta
Coarctation of Aorta (CoAo) is when the Aorta itself is narrowed and less blood flows through it. This can occur either by itself or in combination with other heart defects. The most common heart defect that occurs with CoA is patent ductus arteriosus or ventricular septal defect.
The human brain is one of the most important parts of the body. It controls every aspect of the body, from nervous impulses, to stress and strain, to thoughts to body movement and motor functions, to breathing. This is why; protecting the brain from any damage is important for smooth functioning of body. And even in case of any brain related concerns always look for immediate diagnosis and best treatment.
Various disorders that may develop in the brain
Whether due to an injury or due to a genetic disorder, or cause of an infectious disease, brain disorders are likely to form in the body for various reasons. These disorders are known to adversely affect the entire nervous system and cause a number of disabilities and crippling effects. Some of them include –
- Cerebral Contusion
- Cerebral edema
- Body or regional paralysis
- Parkinson’s disease
- Huntington’s disease
Non-surgical and surgical treatments for brain disorders
