2-Year-Old Iraqi Boy got Fresh Lease of Life

Murtadha Ameer Mausa, a two-year-old Iraqi boy suffering from complete heart blockage, was successfully treated in Fortis Escorts Heart Institute.


Ameer Mausa had already undergone an open heart surgery to correct congenital anomaly in Mumbai when he was just one and half years. He was referred to many hospitals due to slow pulse rate. Finally, he was suggested to undergo another open heart surgery. His parents were reluctant to go for another heart surgery. However, the doctors briefed the parents about the complications involved with another heart surgery.


“When Ameer was brought to Fortis, his pulse rate was recorded at 42 per minute and BP at 8/5 mmHg. After a lot of deliberations, it was considered that single chamber (VVIR) pacemaker will be implanted via veins under the clavicle. The procedure lasted for less than 45 minutes,” said Aparna Jaswal, additional director Cardiology. She, along with Radha Krishnan, director Pediatric Cardiology at Fortis, led a team of doctors for this procedure.


Dr. Krishnan said, “The patient has earlier undergone an open-heart surgery to correct a congenital defect. Apart from this, the child suffered from slow pulse rate. Although other hospitals suggested for open-heart surgery to implant pacemaker, we took the challenge of routing the pacemaker through veins. The reason was to avoid second open-heart surgery on the kid.”


As a follow-up, the patient was provided with remote monitoring device wherein he can send transmissions from his home to the doctors at Fortis Hospital. He has been advised to come for follow-up every six-month.
