Heart Surgeries at Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex (OAUTHC)

Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex (OAUTHC) Ile-Ife, successfully performed 12 open heart surgeries as well as 14 closed heart surgeries in 2016. This year (2017), the cardiac surgical team has performed 7 open heart surgeries and 5 closed heart surgeries. The surgeries this year included the repair of a 10-month-old boy with Type 1A truncus arteriosus, the very first successful repair of truncus arteriosus in Nigeria. The success story of the surgical operations were achieved based on the competence of our cardiac surgical team and cardiology unit who work in very close partnership with the International Congenital Heart Centre of Sheba Medical Centre, Israel to provide world- class care at very low cost.

Our scope of surgical operations include the whole range of congenital heart surgeries including closures of patent ductus arteriosus, atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects, total corrections of tetralogy of Falot, repairs of atrioventricular septal defect and valve repairs amongst others. We also routinely implant pacemakers to treat symptomatic bradyarrythmias.

Our hospital is fully equipped with the latest intraoperative and post-operative equipment to ensure success of our surgeries

The well trained and highly skilled professional medical experts of OAUTHC are kind, compassionate and are very committed to diagnosing and treating all congenital and acquired heart diseases while taking cognizance of the psychological components of cardiovascular diseases.
