Ghulam’s congenital cardiac defect was corrected
Ghulam Hussain's Story
Ghulam Hussan, 1.2 months old, suffered from breathlessness on mild exertion. On thorough medical check-up, he was diagnosed with doubly committed subarterial ventricular septal defect (DCSA VSD). The doctors advised surgical intervention for the closure of this cardiac defect. For this reason, Ghulam was admitted in University of Lahore Teaching Hospital and his open heart surgery was performed by Dr. Salman A. Shah on 23.01.2021. His VSD was closed. He stayed in the hospital for ten days and was discharged in a satisfactory condition. Ghulam is on his way to a complete recovery. The surgery was conducted with the support of Pakistan Children Heart foundation and other donors.
