Aswah Ihsan's Story
Seven-year-old Aswah Ihsan, a resident of Mirpur Khas, was suffering from dyspnea on mild exertion since birth. Upon cardiac assessment, she was diagnosed with a double-chambered right ventricle with ventricular septal defect (VSD). She was advised by her cardiologist to undergo open-heart surgery for VSD closure. For this purpose, she was admitted to Aga Khan University Hospital, where Dr. Waris Ahmad performed open-heart surgery for VSD closure on 11.03.2022. After six days of hospital stay, Aswah was discharged in a satisfactory condition.
