Aortopulmonary (AP) window Surgery in Bangladesh
Aortopulmonary window is a rare heart defect in which a hole exists between the main artery that transports blood from the heart to the body (the aorta) and the one that transports blood from the heart to the lungs (the pulmonary artery) (pulmonary artery). It’s a congenital disorder, which means it’s present from birth.
A void exists between the aorta and the pulmonary artery in babies with an aortopulmonary window. Blood from the aorta flows into the pulmonary artery as a result of this hole, and too much blood flows to the lungs. This results in pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs) and congestive heart failure. The larger the defect, the more blood that can penetrate the pulmonary circulation.
