Mangaluru, Sep 24: 18-month-old girl child with severe congenital heart disease has undergone Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (TAPVC) repair at Indiana Hospital and Heart Institute, Mangaluru. The treatment was successfully performed in the last week of July 2020.

The child arrived at the hospital with issues of severe breathlessness and failure to gain weight. At the time of admission, the child was barely weighing 5 kg, which is comparable to the weight of a two-month baby. She was diagnosed with Supra Cardiac type of TAPVC, a rare condition in which blood vessels that drain the lungs (pulmonary veins) are connected abnormally to the heart. This disease causes oxygen-poor blood being distributed all over the body, causing severe breathlessness, bluish discolouration of the body and severe failure to thrive.

Following the family’s consent, TAPVC repair was performed last week. In this procedure, the abnormal venous connection was repaired in an open chest procedure. According to hospital authorities, it is one among the rare open cardiac surgeries done in children in Dakshina Kannada and neighbouring districts.

The procedure took about three hours to complete and the child got discharged after a week with great relief in her symptoms. Dr Yusuf Kumble, managing director and chief interventional cardiologist, Dr Ali Kumble chairman and HOD, paediatrics, Dr Abhishek neonatologist, Dr Siddharth V T cardiac surgeon, Dr Madhan cardiac anaesthetist and Dr Arun Varghese paediatric intensivist, were part of the procedure.

The family was of very poor financial background and did not even possess BPL card. Hence the managing director of Indiana Hospital and Heart Institute, Dr Yusuf Kumble issued a cheque of Rs. 1.5 lac for surgery from Indiana Fathima Health Foundation, a Trust set up to help the poor and needy people. This helped in meeting the cost of treating the child and providing financial relief to the helpless family.

Bengaluru, Sept 23: A city civil and sessions court has denied bail to P Naveen, nephew of Pulikeshinagar MLA R Akhanda Srinivasamurthy, saying though the charges against him are not severe, his act had led to riots in east Bengaluru’s KG Halli and DJ Halli areas on August 11.

Naveen, 35, of Kaval Byrasandra, was arrested on August 12 following an alleged derogatory post on Facebook. He has been booked under IPC sections 154A (promoting enmity between two different groups on the ground of religion, race, language etc.) and 295A (deliberate and malicious acts,intended to outrage religious feelings of any class) and also section 67 (punishment for publishing of material containing sexually explicit act) of the IT Act. They prescribe less than 5 years of imprisonment, if found guilty.

Allegedly infuriated by Naveen’s post, thousands of miscreants attacked his and his uncle’s house and set ablaze DJ Halli and KG Halli police stations. Over 500 vehicles were also set on fire and 4 people were killed in police crackdown on the rioters. Naveen told the court he has not committed the alleged offences and has no bad antecedents.

However, P Prasanna Kumar, special public prosecutor, said: “There have been 67 FIRs registered for the violence. Naveen also has six criminal cases against him prior to this case. A man from Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, has announced “Rs 50 lakh bounty to those who bring the head of Naveen”. He may tamper with the prosecution evidence and commit similar offences if released on bail.”

“Though the offences are not punishable for more than five years, the gravity should be looked into,” judge Vidyadhar Shirahatti said.
