The infant has a delicate problem. "The child has been diagnosed as having a condition called transposition of the great arteries. This means that the right ventricle is connected to the pulmonary artery and the left ventricle goes to the aorta, which is the reverse of the normal condition. Due to this, impure blood is circulating in Sadullah's heart and it has also led to the child developing a hole in the heart," Deviprasad Shetty, Chairman, Narayana Hrudayalaya and cardiac surgeon, told The Hindu. Dr. Shetty said this was a rare condition. Now his condition is stable.
Sadullah and his mother, Sabir Basheer, travelled from Sarghoda to Lahore and came to Delhi in the Lahore-Delhi bus. They flew to Bangalore. Since Noor Fatima, two and a half years old, the Narayana Hrudayalaya has received 22 children for treatment of heart disease from Pakistan. A few of them are still here. In all, 62 patients have come to the hospital from Pakistan.
