Deviated Septum

The septum is the wall of cartilage that separates the nostrils, dividing the nose into two separate chambers. A deviated septum is when this wall isn’t straight. This can result in nasal obstruction which, in turn, may cause congestion, problems with breathing, or nasal discharge. You may be born

Nasal Surgery

frequently performed to correction a deviated septum, a condition in which the septum isn’t in straight vertical alignment, causing obstructed airflow. Rhinoplasty is the surgical repair of a defect of the nose, including reshaping or resizing the nose, narrowing the nostrils, or changing the angle between

Cardiac Catheterization Septal Ablation

Cardiac catheterization septal ablation is a procedure used to treat a thickening and stiffness (hypertrophic myopathy) of the muscle (septum), which divides the walls of the heart. This condition obstructs proper blood flow out of the heart, making it work harder, resulting in further thickening

Cardiac Catheterization with VSD

Cardiac catheterization using a VSD closure device is a procedure to close a hole (ventricular septal defect or VSD) in the wall (septum) that separates the heart’s left and right ventricles (pumping chambers). This hole causes the heart to work harder and pump more blood than normal. Eventually

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy occurs when the muscle mass of the left ventricle of the heart is thicker than normal, or the wall between the two ventricles (septum) becomes enlarged and obstructs the blood flow from the left ventricle. Because it prevents the heart from properly relaxing between

Cardiogenic Shock

tendons that support the heart valves, especially the mitral valve Tear or rupture of the wall (septum) between the left and right ventricles (lower heart chambers) Very slow heart rhythm (bradycardia) or heart conduction block Symptoms can include: chest pain or pressure, profuse sweating, rapid

Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD)

A ventricular septal defect (VSD) is a congenital heart defect. This means that your baby is born with it. A VSD is an opening or hole in the dividing wall (septum) between the 2 lower chambers of the heart (right and left ventricles). VSDs are the most common type of congenital heart defect. A VSD
