Fred: A Different Open Heart Surgery

Fred: A Different Open Heart Surgery

Fred, an 11 month old purebred Standard Schnauzer, has large Atrial Septal Defect (sinus venosus), not amendable to trans catheteral closure with Amplatzer device. Fred already developed moderate pulmonic stenosis and right side heart hypertrophy. Without an open heart surgery to patch the defect he will develop congestive heart failure (CHF).
