Five-day-old baby gets pacemaker9th April 2008
A five-day old baby has had a pacemaker fitted to tackle a serious heart problem.
Liam King, who was born six weeks premature and with a condition that affected the electrical signals sent to his heart to control his heartbeats, had the operation to fit the device at the Royal Hospital for Children in Bristol. Liam, from Blaenau Gwent, could have died within minutes if he had not had the pacemaker fitted but he will need further operations to replace the device as he grows up.
