Muhammad Aftab

Cardiothoracic Surgeon

My clinical interests in adult cardiac surgery include surgery for thoracic aortic aneurysm, open and endovascular thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic repair, heart valve surgery, high-risk reoperation surgery, minimally invasive cardiac surgery and percutaneous valve treatment. I believe in a patient centered approach by combining the traditional open cardiac and vascular surgery with the cutting edge catheter-based interventions and endovascular surgery to provide the best outcomes for my patients. Some of the areas of my clinical interest are coronary artery bypass grafting, aortic and mitral valve repair, arrhythmias surgery, hybrid aortic repair and heart transplantation. I treat the patients with bicuspid aortic valve and other connective-tissue disorders such as Marfan, Loeys-Dietz syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos syndromes.

I operate on the entire spectrum of adult cardiac and aortic surgery. Some of the areas of my particular clinical interest in cardiac surgery include surgery for the thoracic aortic aneurysms including aortic root surgery, ascending aortic and aortic arch replacement, thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair, endovascular aortic surgery, coronary artery bypass grafting, minimally invasive cardiac surgery, heart valve surgery including mitral and aortic valve repair, percutaneous valve interventions, arrhythmia surgery and heart transplantation.

It depends upon the size of defect and location. His pediatric cardiologist and cardiac surgeon should be able to better answer to this question after a complete evaluation. Thanks READ MORE

Yes, diastolic dysfunction can lead to congestive heart failure from the impaired relaxation of the heart.

Would LAD lesion cause tachycardia?
