I wouldn't be jumping for joy for this baby just yet. Babies who have had arterial switches can be the sickest of the sick, even with birthweights well over 3 kg. I'd rather admit a TAPVD or truncus repair than a switch! Those miniscule reimplanted coronaries can collapse on themselves or clot off in an instant and you've got a code situation on your hands. This kiddy has a long way to go before we can say it's a success. (To say nothing of all the complications of significant prematurity...)
the title was 'tiny baby survives open heart surgery'.
that's the first success.
all we can do is take it one step at a time.
with alot of prayers.
