Baby's protruding heart tucked inside body

Ever wondered how big miracles can haapen with the advancement in clinical science? A 10 day old baby's protruding heart was tucked inside body by making some space by displacing the lungs and the liver.

In a critical surgery performed at New Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Indian government doctors Thursday eased the protruding heart of a 10-day-old baby boy back into his body in what they called a critical but successful surgery.

A.K. Bisoi, cardiothoracic surgeon at New Delhi's All India Institute of Medical Sciences, told that his 13-member team did not stop the child's heartbeat as they performed the 3½-hour operation. The dangling organ has been successfully placed in a space surgically created between the chest and the abdomen, he said and he added that the baby is stable and may not require any other surgery.

Bisoi explained that surgeons had to displace organs including the lungs and the liver as they created a space for the heart. "We will have to keep a watch on how those organs respond," he said.

The baby was born August 25 in a remote village in India's eastern state of Bihar along the border with Nepal.

He was admitted to the hospital the next day with acute dehydration and infection that doctors say he probably caught during a 683-mile (1,100-kilometer) journey in a rickety train compartment. Specialists replaced the baby's infected blood and covered his heart with a synthetic membrane.

Bisoi described the case -- called ectopia cordis, which only affects five to eight cases in 1 million live births -- as a "lifetime opportunity" that might shed light on how to deal with similar conditions in the future.

"You are daring to correct a defect of Mother Nature," Bisoi told a day ahead of the surgery.

All India Institute of Medical Sciences, carried out the operation free of cost.

The child's 24-year-old father, Chander Majhi, is a laborer in Bihar, one of India's most impoverished states.

He said he felt indebted to the doctor in his home state as well as the hospital specialists. The Bihar doctor had not only referred the baby to the hospital but also financed the trip.
