Maimoona Bibi's Story
One-and-a-half-year-old Maimoona Bibi, a resident of Rahim Yar Khan, had been suffering from shortness of breath and cyanosis on mild exertion since birth. She was also very weak and failed to gain sufficient weight. Upon consultation and after some diagnostic tests, she was diagnosed with complex cardiac conditions, including Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA) and Interventricular Septum (IVS). To fix these defects, the cardiologist advised surgical intervention. For this purpose, Maimoona was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital, Lahore, and her open-heart surgery for Senning was performed by Dr. Asim Khan on 25.05.2022. She stayed in the hospital for seven days and was discharged in a stable condition. Maimoona’s health has improved a great deal since her surgery.
