A 6-year-old boy diagnosed with congenital transposition of the great arteries – a rare heart defect in which the heart ventricles (heart chambers) are reversed underwent a crictical cardiac surgery in a Mumbai Hospital. The boy also had additional complications as he had a large hole in the heart and the artery to the lungs was narrow. Moreover, his heart was located on the right side of the chest.

The complex surgery was performed by a team comprising eight doctors, five nurses and technicians. The position of the heart, and ventricles within were corrected, the hole was repaired, and a cow valve was used to widen the narrow artery to the lungs. The patient is currently being monitored by the doctors and he has been kept in the ICU.
