Saudi Surgeons Save Down Syndrome Child following 3-hour surgery to correct a congenital heart defect.

Surgeons in Al Ahsa (eastern Saudi Arabia) performed an urgent surgery on a 1-year-old child suffering from congenital heart defects.

Saudi Health stated that specialists at Prince Sultan Cardiac Center succeeded in correcting a birth defect during a 3-hour surgery on Monday 14 August for a child with Down syndrome.

The medical team discovered that the child had a minor cavity in the wall between the heart’s chambers, causing high blood pressure in the arteries, and complications in the aorta branches.

The team decided to perform an urgent diagnostic cardiac catheterization. After the surgery, the child was transformed into the ICU and is recovering.
