She was earlier operated upon when she was four years old.

A repeat or redo heart surgery helps the heart beat and function more efficiently.

A team of experts led by Dr Gauranga Majumdar, Director, Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery at Medanta Hospital, performed this risky and complicated heart surgery.

In the procedure, the damaged artificial valve was excised and right heart outflow was augmented and reconstructed with bio-tissue to achieve normal blood flow to the lungs. The child recovered fully and was ready for discharge after the operation.

Dr Majumdar said: "She had difficulty in breathing. She had undergone open heart surgery at the age of 4 in Delhi, where a large hole in the heart was closed and an artificial valve conduit was used to connect her right heart to lungs as that was absent since birth. On investigation it was found that the valve conduit had got damaged and was not working properly. A second surgery was planned for the child to repair her heart again."

"A second surgery involves greater risk, more expenditure and is a rare operation," he added.
