This is our great pleasure that we have successfully performed a lifesaving procedure (BAS) of a 36 days old baby, Samir Sadiq on 12th September,2019. Baby was diagnosed in our hospital as Situs solitus, levocardia, D-loop ventricle(S,D, anterior-posterior great vessels) , d-TGA, restricted patent foramen ovale (1mm), left to right shunt, patent ductus arteriosus (4mm), left to right shunt, dilated left cardiac chambers, intramural coronaries, good biventricular function with pneumonia. Baby was referred from outside hospital with SPO2 56 % high flow oxygen (10L). Baby immediately underwent ventilator support. Emergency Balloon Atrial Septostomy was done successfully within 8 hours of hospital admission. After the procedure baby’s oxygen saturation raised to 90-98 % with good blood flow through the created atrial septal defect (ASD,6 mm) with left to right shunt. The baby was managed by Interventional Paediatric Cardiologist, Paediatrician and MICU team. Now he is ready to be discharged for Arterial switch operation.
