HCM CITY — Doctors from HCM City’s Children No1 Hospital have saved the life of a three-month-old boy diagnosed with a diaphragmatic hernia.
The birth defect involves an abnormal opening in the diaphragm, the curved membrane that helps people breathe. The opening allows some of the organs of the belly (stomach, spleen, liver, and intestines) to enter the chest cavity near the lungs.
The newborn, from central Binh Thuan Province, was hospitalised with a fever, pale lips and peritonitis.
He is now recovering after surgery.
