In May 2021, a 9-month baby girl named Xiaohan finally found a chance of rebirth in Union Hospital Affiliated to Tongji Medical College of Huazhong University of Science and Technology.
On May 31, under the concerted treatment of a multidisciplinary team led by Prof. DONG Nianguo and Prof. XIA Jiahong, Director of Cardiovascular Surgery Department, a precious heart began to beat vigorously again in the chest of Xiaohan. At this point, the heart transplantation finally ushered in new hope for the baby girl.
On June 1, it is learned from the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery that the vital signs of Xiaohan are stable and are recovering rapidly, and tracheal intubation will be removed in the near future.
The operation was released in the form of live broadcasting to help families with congenital heart disease eliminate their fear of CHD and save the lives of more children with end-stage heart failure.
