Jahnavi 1.5 years F
Jahnavi - Post Op: GLEN Surgery done
Jahnvi was brought to the RHC with h/o bluish discolouration of fingers and incessant crying. Clinically Dr Ramesh suspected a Congenital Heart Disease. She was referred to STAR Hospitals, Hyderabad, under Arogyasri Scheme. There she was diagnosed as Situs Inversus, Inlet VSD, Pulm Stenosis and Bilat SVC. A Bilateral Bidirectional Glenn Surgery on CPB was done on 02 Aug 2011 by Dr Anil Kumar and team.
Post op was stormy in part due to a misunderstanding about drug schedules. The baby had a cardiac failure which was revived and is now doing well. 

 Vyshnavi  was not so lucky. All of 02 months old, she was brought to us with bluish discoulouration of the nails and cough.
An echo showed a single dysplastic ventricle, single atrium and transposition of vessels. The baby had a Cardiac Failure which was treated at Narayana Hrudyalaya. She was deemed inoperable and is now only on medical management. The parents were quite shattered and still hope that the baby would be well.



Both Jahnavi and Vyshnavi were initially managed thansk to support from Heart and Hand for the Handicapped USA and Sishukunj International, England
