URGENT: 13 Days Old Baby Urgently Requires Heart Surgery (VSD)

Baby of Ponnu, just 13 days old baby, requires urgent heart surgery due to Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD)

Dear Supporters,

We were invited to meet this family in such urgency for this 13 days old baby that Cardiac Doctor have suggested for an urgent requirement of Heart Surgery but, the family is in extreme poor condition to bare the expense for the surgery and its related treatments.


Please view the child

How is Ventricular Septal Defect Surgery Performed?
The surgery to close a Ventricular septal defect is done under general anesthesia so that the child will be asleep and feel no pain. The surgeon makes a cut down the center of the chest to reach the VSD.

The child is placed on a heart/lng bypass machine during surgery.

The heart is stopped, and the heart/lung machine takes over for the heart, pumping red blood throughout the body.

The heart/lung machine also brings oxygen-poor blood back to the machine where it picks up oxygen.

The surgeon uses a special patch or stitches to close the VSD.

The surgeon puts the patch over the VSD and sews it into place.

Once the repair is completed, the heart is restarted.

The child is taken off the heart/lung bypass machine.

The surgeon closes the skin incision.

Dear Supporters,

We have some unfortunate news to share. Baby of Ponnu passed away on Friday (September 22nd). Our hearts go out to this brave child who endured so much pain and fought so hard for her life.

She underwent the heart transplant surgery and it was a success. A few days after the surgery, she developed infections. The doctors were treating her for the same and the infections reduced initially.

The infections later turned into pneumonia. Unfortunately, her body was unable to take the stress. Your timely support ensured that she received the best medical care.

The family is grateful for all the care and support you’ve shown her. The past few days have been the most difficult ones for the family.

We hope they find strength in this time of grief. May her soul find peace. Please keep the family in your prayers.

Thank you for the support.
