Ume Habiba’s cardiac defects were repaired
Ume Habiba's Story
Ume Habiba, aged 7 years, suffered from shortness of breath and cyanosis on mild exertion. She was also very weak and failed to gain sufficient weight. On medical consultation, she was diagnosed with multiple cardiac conditions including Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA), Interventricular Septum (IVS) and Atrial Septal Defect (ASD). To fix these defects, the cardiologist advised surgical intervention. For this purpose, Ume Habiba was admitted to Ittefaq Hospital and her Senning procedure was performed by Dr. Asim Khan on 01.03.2021. She stayed in the hospital for fifteen days and was discharged in a stable condition. Ume Habiba’s health has improved a great deal since her surgery.
