Two Hospitals Collaborate to Give Baby With Rare Heart Condition the Best Chance at Life

First Ever 'Planned' Delivery of a Baby at Nationwide Children's Hospital

by Riverside Methodist Staff

COLUMBUS, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Nationwide Children's Hospital and Riverside Methodist Hospital announced today at a news conference the first- ever planned birth at Nationwide Children's occurred on Dec. 3, 2007. Baby girl Brenlee Lane was delivered at Nationwide Children's by a team of specialists from Riverside Methodist Hospital to Jessica Lane of Ross County, Ohio.

The unusual arrangement was made necessary due to a serious heart condition identified by Riverside Methodist perinatologists during pregnancy; the condition required transcatheter and surgical therapy immediately after birth by The Heart Center team at Nationwide Children's.

Diagnosing the Problem

Jessica, a single mom, began her journey during a routine visit to her obstetrician at Riverside Methodist, Ronda Gaiser, MD, of Women Physicians in OB-GYN, Inc. "She was 18 weeks along and measuring a little bigger than normal," said Dr. Gaiser, "so I referred her to Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Riverside." Riverside Maternal-Fetal Medicine is a comprehensive perinatal diagnostic center that provides highly specialized care for women with high- risk pregnancies.

During Jessica's Level II anatomic ultrasound, Riverside Methodist perinatologist Matthew Mingione, MD, detected an abnormality in the baby's heart and diagnosed Brenlee with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). Only four out of every 10,000 babies born in the United States are born with HLHS, a condition in which infants do not have normal development of the left side of the heart and can not survive after birth without immediate intervention. Dr. Mingione then referred Jessica to specialists at Nationwide Children's for an echocardiogram of the baby's heart.
