Doctors at a Bangalore hospital saved the life of new born baby girl after performing a complex surgery to overcome a rare defect in the diaphragm.
Jasna R was told that her as of yet unborn child was suffering from a life threatening defect of the diaphragm known as Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) and though the pregnancy would go through without any problem, the doctors in London failed to give any assurance that the child will survive giving it only a 26 percent chance of making it through.
The doctors then suggested that she should terminate her pregnancy. However Jasna and her husband travelled to India to seek a second opinion at Bangalore's Cradle hospital. After the baby was born, the doctors, led by Dr Kishore Kumar and Dr Nandini, performed a rare laproscopic surgery which was successful.
