Mohd Aasim had a large hole in the heart. His aorta and pulmonary artery were coming out of the wrong chamber.
To add on to his complications, one of the main blood vessels was blocked below the valve. As a result, the kid had turned blue with oxygen concentration of mere 52 per cent instead of 100 per cent, the hospital said in a statement.
A team led by Vijay Agarwal, Director and HOD, Paediatric Surgery, Fortis Memorial Research Institute, successfully operated upon the patient using Double Root Translocation (DRT) surgery method.
"The next day, his oxygen concentration was restored to 100 per cent," he added.
At the time of admission, an echo and CT evaluation was conducted, after which a decision was taken in favour of the complicated surgery, in consultation with his family who were briefed about the risks involved.
