Today, Ilia visited the Department. Surely, with his mother. He was born 8 months ago with transposition of the great vessels. What does it mean?
It means that the aorta and the pulmonary artery were reversed. Imagine that you are trying to put on a suit, with a trouser leg instead of left sleeve (an example can be not very good, but it can be used to show how surgeons alter the main vessels). In this case, the entire drama was that blood was not enriched with oxygen. This flaw is considered to be critical. A child without surgery can live for only a few days. We made a radical correction of congenital heart disease for Ilia. End up here we have a chubby, smiling kid. His mother now looks 10 years younger than when we operated Ilia. I hope you understand why.
