Essa Khan's Story
Essa Khan, 1.8 years old, suffered from breathlessness and cyanosis since his birth. On detailed medical consultation, he was diagnosed with congenital cardiac defects called tetralogy of fallot (TOF) and double outlet right ventricle (DORV). He was advised surgery for the repair of these defects. For this purpose, Essa was admitted in Ittefaq Hospital and his open heart surgery for BT shunt procedure was performed by Dr. Mohammad Asim Khan on 14-01-2021. He stayed in the hospital for four days and was discharged in a satisfactory condition. Essa’s weakness has subsided and he is recovering swiftly from his major surgery. The surgery was conducted with the support of Pakistan Children Heart foundation and other donors.
