Hyderabad, March 18th, 2021: 5-year-old Victor Bior along his mother today left Hyderabad to head back to their native South Sudan after fully recovering from the recent surgery performed to treat the boy for congenital heart disease! The surgery was performed three weeks back at the Continental Hospitals, one of the most preferred healthcare destinations for patients from the Middle East, Africa, and other parts of the World.

 

The boy was admitted to the hospital with multiple ailments like congenital heart disease or a hole in the heart, and pulmonary arterial narrowing, which reduces blood supply to the lungs. Together, these conditions worsened the health of the patient, necessitating an immediate surgical intervention. Victor Bior, son of Mrs Magdalene Ayen Deng Panyang, a single parent, received great care and attention at Continental Hospitals.

 

Commenting on the procedure, Dr. Pradeep Rachakonda, Senior Cardiothoracic Surgeon, Continental Hospitals, who led the surgery said, “Victor was first diagnosed with congenital heart disease when he was just three months old, and the severity of the condition worsened with age. Pulmonary artery narrowing condition added to the complexity, forcing us to perform an open-heart surgery, which was done three weeks back. The boy was under constant observation since surgery and has recovered well to return to his native place along with his caring mother.

 

Continental Hospitals is among the most trusted healthcare players in the country today which is being preferred for complex treatments from patients around the world. Our team of experts are known to not just perform rare surgeries, but also believe in taking a compassionate approach towards their patients. We are extremely happy, Victor Bior is returning to his place of birth, and would be able to lead a healthy life hereafter,” added Dr. Riyaz Khan, CEO, Continental Hospitals.

 

The causes of a congenital heart defect are often unknown, and risk factors include certain infections during pregnancy such as rubella, use of certain medications or drugs. Having a parent with a congenital heart defect is also a risk factor, along with, parents of Consanguineous marriage (where parents are related) have a slightly higher risk or poor nutritional status. Each year, millions of children are diagnosed with such ailments, and unfortunately, few among these die at a young age due to non-availability of world-class treatment.
