(ANSA) - Genoa, March 27 - A 10-year-old girl with a
congenital heart condition and severe pulmonary malformation has
been saved from certain death by a pulmonary self-transplant,
the first time the operation has been performed on a paediatric
patient, sources at a Genoa hospital said Wednesday.
The operation was performed at the northwestern Italian
city's Gaslini Hospital.
The doctors invented an innovative technique to save the
girls' life, sources said.
First they restored heart function and then that of the lungs
with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) assistance and
four operations that were all extremely complex, the sources
said.
