As time was precious, a team of doctors headed by an experienced paediatric cardiologist decided to go full steam ahead with the opening of closed valve using a new and unique hybrid intervention. To do such a delicate operation on a beating heart that is without the use of bypass machine (procedure where heart is stopped and an artificial machine takes over the function of the heart) on such a tiny baby had its own risks. But the heroic efforts from the team of doctors, nurses and technician staff ensured the procedure was a great success. A balloon catheter was guided towards the diseased valve and was then inflated. The valve opened up immediately restoring normal circulation.
The baby’s condition improved dramatically and was off the ventilator the very next day. His mother was able to feed him too.
