Columbia Asia Hospital Saves Blue Baby

“Our main challenge was to convince the parents that the child needs an immediate surgery. The child needed a first stage (emergency) surgery, as he was very young for a complete operation to correct his heart defect. The very first surgery was conducted then where the doctor provided the lung with a small tube procedure, called the BT SHUNT, a surgical procedure generally used to increase pulmonary blood flow for palliation in duct dependent cyanotic heart defects like pulmonary atresia, which are common causes of blue baby syndrome. After this surgery was conducted, the “Blue Baby” became pink for the very first time since birth, that night, the child received enough oxygen”, said Dr. Benedict Raj, Cardiac surgeon.
