Transonic Supports Surgeon’s Dream for Ethiopian Children’s Heart Center and Training Facility
Date:5/16/2013

surgery. First preparations took place in 2002. The challenges were many. First, a willing partner hospital in Addis Ababa was needed to partner with Dr. Tondo. The Black Lion Hospital, a University Hospital agreed to partner and promote the project. Secondly, a search had to be conducted for medical professionals to provide operative therapy and long-term follow-up care. Then, equipment, supplies and manpower had to be determined. All consumable materials from soap and disinfectants to suction catheters, bandages and dressing materials for the intensive care unit had to be ordered, acquired, packed, and shipped. Last, but not least, donations to fund the undertaking had to be solicited. Fortunately, support came from many organizations, government offices, and companies whose contributions allowed this project to become a reality.

Presently, a surgical team from Braunschweig City Hospital travels routinely to Addis Ababa to perform open-heart surgery on children and young adults. During the first 2-week visit to Ethiopia in 2004, 19 cardiac operations were performed, including valve replacements, a reduction plasty of the left atrium, a pacemaker implantation and a left ventricular myomectomy. The team met regularly after Project 2004 to discuss future plans. In 2007, the team returned to Ethiopia and performed valve replacement or reconstructive operations on 19 patients. The third project, hosted by the Black Lion Hospital in Addis Ababa in 2009 saw successful valve replacement surgery performed on another 18 patients. The most recent project in 2011 was equally successful.
