Ammar Ali's Story
Ammar Ali, aged 2 years, suffered from shortness of breath on little exertion and his skin also took a bluish hue. These symptoms were evident since he was born. His parents got worried and took him for medical consultation. Ammar’s test reports showed that he had a ventricular septal defect (VSD) since birth. VSD refers to a hole in the heart. The cardiologist advised surgery for VSD closure. For this purpose, Ammar was admitted to The University of Lahore Teaching Hospital and the defect was repaired surgically by Dr. Salman A. Shah on 12-Feb-21. He stayed in the hospital for five days and was discharged in a satisfactory condition. Ammar’s health has improved a great deal since the surgery.
