Heart reverse surgery joy27th March 2008
Surgeons at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle have successfully completed a complex eight-hour operation on a three-year-old boy with a â€œback to frontâ€? heart.
Alex Hutchinson from Dipton, County Durham, was born with a heart where his arteries were connected to the wrong chambers of his heart. It is the first time surgeons at the hospital have performed the operation to turn a heart around but Alex has now made a full recovery. The hospital now plans to offer the procedure to other children with similar conditions.
