Pediatrician 's  Response

I can understand your dilemma on getting this information. Congenital heart disease is very complex to explain in a few sentences in this forum. However with the data provided by you, your child will require surgery to repair the different anomalies. Considering all the parameters, growth of the baby, the pediatric cardiologist will plan out the procedure best suited for your baby. I suggest that you follow the advice given by your pediatric cardiologist.

With best wishes,
