ISLAMABAD: A team of doctors at Noida (India) gave a new lease of life to a three-year-old Pakistani child who was suffering from a rare heart disease, found in one among 200,000 children.

According to a Health News Channel, Mohammad Bilal was suffering from Uhl’s anomaly. The muscles on the right chamber of his heart were weak and enlarged,which increased pressure on his heart’s left chamber.

“As a result, the child’s heart was not functioning properly and the pumped blood was unable to reach the his lungs resulting in high risk for his life, doctors said in statement on Friday.

Bilal was treated with fontan procedure and right ventricle exclusion from circulation method, a critical surgerical procedure that took about five hours.

“Under this procedure, the entire blue blood of the child’s body was pumped directly into his lungs through a tube and the right chamber of the heart is removed,” doctors said.

“Due to prolonged illness, the child had become very weak, hence, he was kept on ventilator for four days post surgery. Along with this, he was given medicines so that his body gains immunity and does not develop any infections,” doctors added.

Bilal was also given a high calorie, high protein and vitamin diet through feeding tube to ensure speedy recovery. He was discharged last week, the doctor said. – APP
