Maroofa Wali's Story
Maroofa Wali, 4 months old, failed to gain weight since she was born. She also suffered from repeated chest infections. On complete medical check-up, she was diagnosed with ventricular septal defect (VSD) and advised surgical intervention. For this reason, Maroofa was admitted in Ittefaq Hospital and her open heart surgery for VSD closure was carried out by Dr. Asim Khan on 24.12.2020. She stayed in the hospital for eight days and was discharged in a satisfactory condition. Maroofa’s condition has improved since her surgery. The surgery was conducted with the support of Pakistan Children Heart foundation and other donors.
