 'Perfect' Surgery on Baby's Swollen Head Performed
Life-saving surgery has been successfully carried on an Indian baby suffering from a rare disorder that caused her head to swell to nearly double its size, says neurosurgeon.

"The surgery went perfectly, much better than expected," said Sandeep Vaishya after the procedure on 15-month-old Roona Begum.

"It's definitely a success but it's too early to say what the quality of her future life will be like," Vaishya added, speaking exclusively to an AFP reporter inside the operating theatre at a hospital in New Delhi.
