United Arab Emirates, Dubai, February 11, 2013: A seven year old Afghani expatriate can breathe easy due to successful complex cardiac surgeries which were preformed by DHA cardiologists free of cost as part of the Nabadat( heartbeat) initiative.

The Nabadat initiative is a joint humanitarian initiative launched by Mohammad Bin Rashid Charity and Humanitarian Establishment and the DHA to provide free medical assistance to children with congenital diseases. Since, the inception of this programme in 2007, more than 300 children have benefited from the initiative.

Of the many surgeries performed by DHA cardiologists, one of the most complicated cases was that of this seven year-old.
Dr Obaid Al Jassim, Head of Cardiothoracic Surgery, said She was a cyanotic baby and suffered from breathing difficulties. Since her right ventricle was poorly developed, it could not receive deoxygenated blood from the body and pump it to the lungs. In other words, her blood was not getting oxygenated.

In 2011, we did the first operation. We diverted the deoxygenated blood from the upper part of the body directly to the lungs. She visited us for regular follow-ups and two weeks ago, we conducted the second operation known as Fontan which helps divert the deoxygenated blood from the lower part of the body to the lungs.
Dr Jassim said both the operations were a success and that she is recovering well. Today, she visited the hospital for her first follow-up post surgery and she is going well.

This surgery was the biggest operation to have been done under Nabadat initiative. This surgery would have cost the family around Dh250,000, if done abroad. Complex cardiac surgeries are expensive because of the technology and expertise involved. Therefore, initiatives like the Nabadat project are helpful to assist those families who cannot bear the cost of such treatment, said Dr Jassim.
The next workshop under the Nabadat project will take place mid 2013.
