Which is probably why V.V. Bashi, MIOT Hospital's cardiologist who performed a life-saving operation on her, thinks she lives a charmed life.
"It is a miracle she has lived for 24 years. Lung pressure had been building up slowly and soon she would have become inoperable," Dr. Bashi told media persons on Thursday. Her quality of life, though, had deteriorated rapidly, especially in the last five years. Her parents, who live in Thoraipakkam, approached many hospitals, but nobody was willing to operate upon Kala.
"She was a high-risk case. Finding no record of all these three complications occurring together in any patient, we were forced to innovate," Dr. Bashi explained. "So many things could have gone wrong during the operation, but they did not," he said. Dr. Bashi and his team comprising Dr. K. Srinivasa Babu, Dr. Aju Jacob, nurses and other technical staff laboured four hours to patch up Kala's heart just the way it should be.

After consulting several doctors and surgeons in Mumbai, his father approached V.V. Bashi, the Chairman of the Centre for Thoracic and Cardio Vascular Care at MIOT hospitals.
At the age of four, Milind was found to have a large hole in his heart. He then developed progressive breathlessness and difficulty in sleeping. During treatment to repair the hole, he was found to have a large aneurysm of the aorta along with a leak in his aortic valve. In addition, Milind had a chest wall abnormality due to a depressed breastbone pushing his heart completely to the left side of the chest cavity. Due to such a complication, unlike other conventional surgeries where the procedure is performed through the midline, they had to make cuts in the left side of his chest.
"The surgery was a tricky one since the heart was pushed to the left side which made it harder to make the stitches. Also, the visibility was less since we had to make special cuts on the left side of his chest," Dr. Bashi said. Due to the abnormal positioning of his heart, his left was partially functioning thereby causing the difficulty in breathing.

"What he had was what we call a 'type A' dissection of the aorta right down the length of the major blood vessel," explains V.V. Bashi, chairman, MIOT Centre for Thoracic and Cardio Vascular care. In an aortic dissection, a potentially life-threatening condition, there is a tear in the main blood vessel which leads to bleeding into and along the wall of the aorta. This leads to two channels being formed in the aorta itself.
Dr. Bashi further clarifies: Five per cent of patients die within an hour. Prolonging the surgery only increases the chances of death.

"But this creates additional risk for the patient; and brings on the associated problems of two surgeries," Dr. Bashi explains.

The whole graft resembles the trunk of an elephant, but this one is called 'frozen' because it is reinforced with pliable metal which gives it its form," Dr. Bashi explains.
The surgery was only possible because of a team effort, Dr. Bashi says.
