Baby with ‘hole in heart’ gets new life under Chiranjeevi

Jaipur: A team of doctors at SMS hospital gave new life to 1.5-year-old Tanishq after a complicated operation free of cost under the CM Chiranjeevi Yojana. Tanishq was suffering from down syndrome along with a hole in his heart. Before coming to SMS hospital, the relatives got him treated at many hospitals, but everywhere the operation was refused citing age factor.

In such a situation, the family members contacted CTVS surgeon Dr Hemlata Verma at SMS hospital. Dr Verma said that in this disease the blood starts flowing from the heart to the lungs through the hole in the heart. Due to this the pressure in the lungs becomes very high. If the operation gets delayed, impure blood starts flowing in the opposite direction and when the condition worsens, blood starts coming out from the internal organs.

Dr Verma said that usually heart hole operation is done immediately in new born children but the age of this child was a bit more. There is a lot of risk in this type of operation but with the consent of the family members the operation was done and now the child is recovering slowly.
