Naseem’s Heart Put In Its Plac

Michelle Hasni of Cutler Ridge, Miami, delivered a male child on Wednesday at Holtz Children's Hospital. The baby had a very rare congenital heart disorder called Ectopia// cordis. Seven or eight babies in a million are born with this birth defect.

The baby named Naseem, was born with his heart outside his chest. The breast bone or sternum and the protective cover for the heart called pericardium had not developed in him.

The doctors at University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center, performed a six-hour surgery, and placed the infant’s heart inside his chest and they are mighty pleased with the infant's speedy recovery.

'The first challenge is to get the heart back into the chest, make room for the heart and loosen attachments,' said Dr. Eliot Rosenkranz ,on Wednesday.

"He's not going to be able to play certain kinds of sports where a blow to the sternum to you and me wouldn't be a problem, but in him it would be. So I think some competitive sports are going to be out,"said Rosenkranz, a cardio thoracic surgeon, "but he's going to be able to participate in other sorts of activities."

He added: "Certainly the goal is as normal a childhood as he can achieve."

During the operation, Naseem's heart was first wrapped in Gore-Tex,and then a layer of his own skin, to substitute for the missing pericardium.The heart was then slowly eased inside his chest.

'I am very thankful that I found the doctors that I found, and I thank God every day,' said his mother at a news conference.

Doctors are happy that the newborn's heart was functioning properly. The mother already had borne two normal children and knew something was amiss as she felt the baby hiccupping constantly in the womb.

An ultrasound scanning revealed the defect, and a delivery by cesarean section was scheduled to be followed by Naseem's surgery.Both were successfully performed on Wednesday.

Naseem's heart is now covered only by a layer of fabric called Gore-Tex and a layer of his own skin. Soon the doctors plan to fit in a plastic chest cover to protect the heart.Another surgery will be performed after his condition improves, to create an artificial casing using bone tissue taken from his ribs.

If all goes well Naseem will go home in December.
