Wasif’s open heart surgery was performed
Muhammad Wasif's Story
Muhammad Wasif, 7 years old, suffered from dyspnea on mild exertion. His parents took him to a doctor to find out the reason for his symptoms. On thorough medical consultation, it was revealed that he was suffering from ventricular septal defect (VSD) and right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (RVOTO). The cardiologist advised an open heart surgery for VSD closure and RVOT resection. For this purpose, Wasif was admitted in Ittefaq Hospital and the surgery was performed by Dr. Mohamamd Asim Khan on 05-01-2021. He stayed in the hospital for five days and was discharged in a satisfactory condition. Wasif is recovering slowly from his major surgery. The surgery was conducted with the support of Pakistan Children Heart foundation and other donors.
