Who is Aaradhya Mule?

Aaradhya Mule is a three-year-old Mumbai girl who is suffering from end-stage heart disease (Dilated Cardiomyopathy) in April, 2016.

Aaradhya has viral myocarditis, which is a viral infection affecting function of the heart. Only 5% to 1% of all paediatric heart transplant cases are related to viral myocarditis. While in some cases, patient recovers, very few have a heart failure and need transplant.

Aaradhya needs to be admitted to the hospital every 15 days where she is given a medicine intravenously for 48 hours.

What is the medical solution for her problem?

Doctors treating her at Fortis Hospital, Mulund, say the only way to save her is a heart transplant as only 10% of her heart is functional.

The hospital has been relentlessly searching for a brain-dead patient weighing below 40 kilos with blood group A+ / A- / O+ / O-ve.

“She ideally needs a donor whose weight is 25 to 30kg. We are in contact with all transplant hospitals and authorities and are looking for a suitable donor,” said Dr Vijay Agarwal, Paediatric Heart Transplant Surgeon at Fortis Hospital, who is treating Aaradhya.

What next?

To save her life and stop the fortnightly torture permanently, she needs a heart of a brain-dead patient, who weighs less than 40 kg and is between the age of 3-10 years.

Aaradhya is not the only case in India. There are many who are in desperate need of either a heart or other organs and to save many such lives, raising awareness on importance of organ donation is the need of the hour.
