Aligarh : It looks incredible that a hard up four-year–old boy has been provided with a new and smooth span of life by the doctors of Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College (JNMC), Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).
With a view to lid on the congenital malfunctioning of the heart, the doctors implanted permanent pacemaker to a four-year-old child from a nearby district who had a large hole, other defects in heart and with complete heart block since birth.
The team of Prof M U Rabbani (Chairman, Department of Cardiology) and Dr Shaad Abqari (Paediatric Cardiologist and Nodal Officer IPCC) did the permanent pacemaker implantation with technical support from Mr Asghar Abbas, Senior Cath lab technician and Mr Amit Lal from Medtronic Device, USA.
The patient is the youngest to receive a permanent pacemaker at this Institution and it bears testimony to professional competence of the team.
Prof Rabbani informed that implanting a pacemaker in such a small child was a challenging and complex task. The child was operated for heart defects by the team of cardiac surgeons headed by Prof Azam Haseen, Dr Mayank Yadav and Dr Shamayal Rabbani along with Perfusionist, Mr Sabir. The child recovered completely and has been discharged.
Prof Tariq Mansoor, Vice-Chancellor, AMU congratulated the team for their remarkable feat manifesting hard work and dedication.
