Muhammad Umair's Story
Muhammad Umair, 6 years old, suffered from shortness of breath and cyanosis on little exertion since he was born. His parents took him to the doctor to find the reason behind the manifestation of these symptoms. After an ECHO test, it was discovered that Umair was born with a cardiac defect called Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). For repair of this defect, the doctor advised an open heart surgery for total correction. For this purpose, Umair was admitted in Ittefaq hospital and his surgery was performed by Dr. Syed Salman Ahmed Shah on 07.01.2021. He stayed in the hospital for nine days and was discharged in a satisfactory condition. Umair is recovering quickly from his major surgery. The surgery was conducted with the support of Pakistan Children Heart foundation and other donors.
