November 27, 2006: Heart outside



It's another Neatorama-Cellar IotD image of the week.



Michelle Hasni, in late pregnancy, sensed there was a problem -- her unborn baby seemed to be hiccupping constantly. But when docs did an ultrasound, they found something much worse than the hiccupping... the baby's heart was located on the outside of its body. Beating away normally, but in the wrong place.

And then while docs tried to figure out how to best prepare to birth this youngster, to give it the best chance of survival, little Naseem decided it was time to arrive, two weeks early. He was born by Caesarean section Oct. 31.

A few days ago, he went for the six hour surgery to put the heart back inside his chest cavity. They literally covered it with Gore-Tex, then with a layer of his own skin, and then slowly eased it in.

The surgery was successful and Naseem will likely go home for Christmas.

I worked with a couple whose baby was born with organs outside his body. It was a long process but the doctors in Syracuse got him fixed up. Med science can be amazing.

No, the ability of the human body to accept the organs and heal itself is the amazing thing.

Hot med science nurses are another thing, though.
