CHARITY NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION
The vision of the One New Heart is for all Tanzanian children to have access to cardiac treatments. We seek to develop the local team to perform pediatric cardiac operations in Tanzania in an effort to help pediatric cardiac patients.
All funds acquired will be used to cover all medical costs for all Pediatric Cardiac patients to receive life -saving heart surgery at Benjamin Mkapa hospital.
The Cardiac Neurodevelopmental Follow-up Program is for children with congenital heart disease, For the High-Risk Infant Follow-up Program and the Center for Disabilities and Development work together with the pediatric cardiology team for the child’s care.
When an initial diagnosis in newborns cannot be made using non-invasive imaging (such as echocardiography, CT scans or MRI), further invasive angiography is required to define anatomy.
Cardiac Catheterization (Cath) is a specialized procedure to study or repair the heart. A catheter, or thin hollow flexible tube, is inserted into an artery of the leg or arm. Under X-ray visualization, the doctor guides the tip of the catheter to the heart.
