Congenital Heart Defect
December, 2017

Yogendra is 6 years old. His father, Virendra Singh, works in a garment shop at Siliguri (bangal) earning Rs.8000 per month. His mother, Billu Kanwer is a housewife.  Yogendra is a playful child. He loves eating biscuits, fruits and is not fussy about eating any vegetable like other children.

Virendra Singh came to know about his son’s heart problem when he was 1 year old after they consulted their district hospital for routine checkup. Initially Yogendra was treated at JK Lon hospital (State Govt Hospital for Children) where the child got some relief after medication. At the age of 5, he started suffering from severe cough, cold and had a lot of breathing difficulty. The local hospital referred Yogendra to Fortis Escorts Hospital in Jaipur. On 19th September 2017 the family visited Fortis Escorts Hospital in Jaipur to consult with the Pediatric Cardiologist & Surgeon. After a detailed investigation, Yogendra was diagnosed with heart defect and a PDA Device closure was suggested.

Yogendra was treated in November 2017 and his treatment was fully supported by RMMMRT and Fortis Foundation.
