Pediatric cardiac surgery includes surgical interventions of the heart and cardiac vessels outside the heart in children below 18 years of age. It also includes surgical interventions in newborns and neonates. Heart surgeries are done in infants who are born with congenital heart disease or in children who acquire them after birth, when it is necessary for the well-being of the child. Procedures include, open heart surgery where incision is made over the breast bone, closed heart surgery which is done using special instruments and a camera and coronary by-pass surgery that connects a conduit vessel, mostly saphenous vein that bypasses a blockage.
