  • Patient Name : Tsegaamlak Tesemma
  • From Country : Ethiopia
  • Destination Country : India
  • Procedure : ASD closure
  • Hospital : Artemis Hospital, India

I am very satisfied with Dr. Aseem Srivastava and the surgery outcome. I am immensely grateful to Dr. Aseem and his team at Artemis Hospital for the counselling and consultations which were done before surgery.

I give my thanks to MediGence from the bottom of my heart for helping me all through for the doctor, being their for my consultations, lending all assistance for my hospital visits, hotel stay and airport transfers.


A teenager from Ethiopia, 17 years old Tsegaamlak Tesemma had been suffering from a cardiac condition from birth, also referred to as a congenital defect. A Congenital heart defect is also known as a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) or an Atrial Septal Defect (ASD). An Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) is characterized by a hole in the wall which lies right between the two upper chambers of the heart (the atria). The patient had an Atrial Septal Defect or ASD which in many cases either do not create any issue or close on their own. Whereas with this patient, she was dealing with the symptoms for a long time such as palpitations and shortness of breath,

After trying various things, the patient and her family finally got through to MediGence professionals who reassured them and provided the right assistance. After various rounds of conferments, they finally settled on getting their treatment done at Artemis Hospital, Gurgaon, India from Dr. Aseem Srivastava. For this purpose, they travelled on 24 January 2021 and stayed for four days in Artemis Hospital, India. Ms. Tsegaamlak Tesemma travelled here with her father who was her support system and guide through the entire treatment journey.

Dr. Aseem Srivastava treated the patient for her long-standing condition. One of the brightest Heart Specialists in India, Dr. Srivastava is an experienced Pediatric CTVS whose association has been with several world-class healthcare institutions over his long illustrious career. His present position is as Head – Paediatric Cardiac Surgery, Artemis Health Institute, India. An MBBS from C.S.J.M University, Kanpur, India, M.Ch- CardioVascular and Thoracic Surgery, G B Pant Hospital, Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, and M.S- General Surgery, King George Medical University, Lucknow, India.

The first JCI and NABH accredited hospital in Gurgaon, Artemis Hospital is a multi-specialty advanced hospital in India with varied medical & surgical interventions and a good balance of inpatient and outpatient services. A patient-centric healthcare organization, Artemis is frequented by patients from all over the world.

Pre Treatment & Process

If the hole is too big to close with the catheterization or is in the wrong place for it, then an ASD surgery is performed. Minimally invasive heart surgery is efficient and completely safe. Ms. Tesemma was a chosen candidate for this procedure owing to the continuance of this issue.

Post getting admitted to the hospital, the patient was apprised of the preparatory tests, the complications and risks involved, the procedure timeline, stay in the hospital, and the post-treatment things to be careful of and follow up care, consultations involved. Then the scheduled surgery began with anesthesia being given to the patient post which a tiny 4-6 cm incision was made between ribs to perform the surgery. The surgery took about two hours and was a success.

Post Treatment

After the observation period of a couple of days, Ms. Tsegaamlak Tesemma was discharged from the hospital and she underwent the 3 week recovery period. During this time MediGence helped the patient and their attendant organize the follow-up consultation. The organization also helped her with the stay options and other coordination such as hospital transfer, hospital appointment, and airport pick up. The patient recovered soon from this process with a net shorter hospital stay, a shorter recovery time, quick return to daily activities. Owing to this being a minimally invasive procedure, there was lower post-operative pain where the incision was made and better cosmetic results.
