July, 5, 2021

Recently, doctors at the Heart Institute of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine saved the life of a little French citizen who was only two days old. The girl had a rare pathology – transposition of the main vessels and a ventricular septal defect (dTMA + VSD).
Therefore, a rather complex arterial switching operation was performed with interventricular septal defect plastics (Arterial switch + VSD). Everything went well, today the girl is already at home with her parents and is gaining weight.
