Anabia Bibi's Story
Anabia Bibi, 2 years old, was a weak baby compared to other babies her age. She also suffered from breathlessness and cyanosis on minimal physical exertion. Her parents took her to the doctor to find out what was wrong with her. It was discovered that Anabia was suffering from tetralogy of fallot (TOF) with left pulmonary artery (LPA) stenosis. The doctor advised surgical intervention for the repair of these defects. For this purpose, Anabia was admitted in Ittefaq Hospital and her open heart surgery for total correction was performed by Dr. Salman Ahmed Shah on 19-01-2021. She stayed in the hospital for six days and was discharged in a satisfactory condition. Anabia has had a gradual and steady recovery. The surgery was conducted with the support of Pakistan Children Heart foundation and other donors.
