Aila Lukman’s Open-Heart Surgery Was Successful
Aila Lukman's Story
Seven-year-old Aila Lukman, a resident of Mianwali, was suffering from shortness of breath, cyanosis, and difficulty in walking since birth. Upon consultation, she was diagnosed with the congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot. The cardiologist advised Open-Heart Surgery for Total Correction. She was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore, and Dr. Asim performed her surgery on 9-06-2022. She had an unusual delayed recovery from the surgery due to her Down’s Syndrome. She was discharged from the hospital after twenty days of stay. The support of the Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation made this surgery possible. Aila has recovered after her surgery.
