The team of doctors at Apollo Children’s Hospital successfully saved a five-month-old baby by performing a high-risk procedure. The parents brought the baby to Apollo Children’s Hospital when she suddenly developed breathlessness. Dr CS Muthukumaran and Dr Anuradha Sridhar, Senior Interventional Paediatric Cardiologists, confirmed that the baby was suffering from Left Atrial Appendage Aneurysm, a rare condition. The surgical team consisting of Dr Neville Solomon, Dr Musthafa Janeel Moosa and Dr V Swaminathan took the baby up for an open heart surgery. The surgery went uneventfully, and the aneurysm was closed off and excised.
