Muhammad Muneeb's Story
Muhammad Muneeb, 1.2 years old, was weak since he was born. He also suffered from repeated episodes of chest infection. When his parents took him to the doctor, multiple tests were performed and he was diagnosed with a condition called patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). The doctors advised surgery for PDA ligation. For this purpose, Muneeb was admitted in University of Lahore Teaching Hospital and the procedure was performed by Dr. Asim Khan on 19.12.2020. His left thoracotomy was done and the abnormal connection was tied off. He stayed in the hospital for four days and was discharged in a stable condition. Muneeb is gradually recovering from his major surgery. The surgery was conducted with the support of Pakistan Children Heart foundation and other donors.
