A 20-day old baby, born preterm and weighing only 750 grams was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect. The baby required immediate PDA device closure to wean it away from ventilator support. Since this expertise was only available at MGM Healthcare, the baby was shifted to the hospital. On March 24, 2022, under the leadership of Dr. K.R. Balakrishnan, Dr. Ramyashri and Dr. Rajesh Kumar performed this procedure. This 20-day old baby is the youngest patient to have undergone a PDA device closure. The cost of this surgical intervention was fully supported by Aishwarya Trust since the parents could not afford treatment costs.
Aishwarya Trust is grateful to our team of Doctors for saving a new-born’s life and bringing joy to the family. The mother, Aswini, was very happy to take home her baby boy.
