Successful Repair of Very Complicated Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia at Surya Hospitals

Doctors thought it was a “hopeless” case, but a four-day-old baby suffering from a rare deformity has miraculously not only survived a difficult operation but emerged perfectly normal after it.The baby boy, born on April 10 to Parvez and Zeenat Kureishi, a couple that stays at Bandra Reclamation, was Abdullah at the Surya Hospitals taken to the Surya Hospitals in Santacruz (East) on April 14 after the parents realised he was having trouble breathing.

Suspecting that the baby’s condition may be a rare one, Surya Hospital authorities immediately called in Dr Ashok Mathure, a paediatric surgeon from Lilavati Hospital, Bandra, and Dr Pankaj Shroff from Nanavati Hospital, Vile Parle, to examine the child and conduct tests.

The x-ray of the chest, Dr Mathure said, revealed that the child’s deformity was indeed rare: the intestine, liver and gall badder were stuck to the right side of the chest. “Further ultrasonography and MRI revealed the lungs were very small and hypoplastic,” Dr Mathure said.

In medical terms, this type of defect is defined as diaphragmatic hernia. Doctors say this deformity is rarest and occurs in one in a crore babies worldwide. Generally, this type of defect appears on the left side but never on the right.

“There is a high mortality rate and operation is the only solution. In infants the condition is very difficult to operate, and in this case, due to lungs being underdeveloped, this was even more risky,” Dr Mathure, who conducted the operation, said.

“It was a very bad situation. We knew the case was hopeless. But the positive side was that the baby was not on ventilator. It was trying hard to breathe,” the doctor added.

A teary-eyed Parvez said, “We were told by doctors that the only chance of survival was operation, but even that could not guarantee the baby’s survival.”

“Finally, we took the decision of going ahead with the operation and arranged for the expenses, because the membrane which was implanted was very costly,” added Parvez, who works as an exceutive in a travel agency.

The baby was operated on April 14, and the surgery lasted two hours but was entirely successful and has now made the baby 100 per cent normal.

“He is perfectly normal now and has taken to breast milk very well. I cannot believe he has survived,” said a relieved Dr Shobha Sharma, CEO, Surya Hospital.
“I saw my baby for the first time after he was operated on,” said Zeenat, the baby’s mother, and the words “Abdullah” came to her lips. “We named him Abdullah meaning Miracle,” said Zeenat, eyes welling up with joy.
Abdullah is still in the NICU and is likely to be discharged in two days.
