The success of operations to treat congenital heart anomalies continues at the al-Kafeel Hospital.

A medical team at Al-Kafeel Specialist Hospital of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine announced that it has successfully treated a two-year-old girl who suffers from congenital heart defects (tetralogy of Fallot).
The pediatric cardiac surgeon at the hospital, Dr. Ahmed Aboudi, said: "Our medical team succeeded in an open heart operation for a two-year-old girl, who suffers from (tetralogy of Fallot), a cyanotic disease that makes the child in a state of constant oxygen deficiency," noting that: Oxygen may reach very low levels and affect the functioning of the brain, causing fainting and loss of consciousness.”
Dr. Aboudi added that: "The best option for treating the case is surgical intervention, through which the opening was closed and the path for blood to reach the lungs was opened, and this matter gave the girl a normal oxygen rate like the rest of the normal children," noting that: "The girl was transferred to the care unit of open-heart surgeries for the purpose of closely monitoring her health condition."
And the pediatric heart surgeon continued, "The intensive care for the heart is like the second stage of treatment, and it is available in the hospital, as there are experienced medical and nursing staff, who have experience in dealing with children with very low weights, who suffer from complex birth defects," explaining: The necessary technologies, devices and medical supplies are also available, and this contributes to the success of the operations.”
