Muhammad Zulqarnain's Story
Muhammad Zulqarnain, 20 months old, suffered from breathing difficulty and cyanosis since he was born. When his parents took him to the doctor and complete medical check-up was performed, he was diagnosed with an atrial septal defect (ASD) and mild left pulmonary artery (LPA) stenosis. To repair these cardiac defects, Zulqarnain was admitted in University of Lahore Teaching Hospital and operated by Dr. Salman A. Shah on 21.01.2021. He was found to have an adequate sized left pulmonary artery (LPA) whereas, his ASD closure was performed. Zulqarnain stayed in the hospital for eight days and was discharged in a satisfactory condition. He has recovered after his surgery and is much more energetic and active than before. The surgery was conducted with the support of Pakistan Children Heart foundation and other donors.
