Four year old, Pakistani boy Rohan Sadiq is operated and shifted to ICU for observation. The child was operated under the supervision of paediatric cardiologist Dr Ashutosh Marwah and paediatric surgeon Dr Rajesh Sharma at Jaypee Hospital.
“According to the current condition of the kid, he will have to under critical observation for 10-12 days. But updates about him will be given to the parents, from time to time,” according to the press release sent by the hospital.
Rohan was operated as the blood pathways were impaired because the two arteries connecting to the wrong chambers of blood and heart without oxygen flows in the body, a medical condition commonly called as D-Transposition of Great Arteries.
Rohan and his family came to India after external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj granted a special medical visa on priority for the kid. This was done after Rohan’s father Kanwal Sadiq had tweeted Swaraj on the issue. She took it up as a cause even though the relations between the two countries remain strained.
