Bahrain doctors perform rare op on baby

MANAMA, July 20, 2015

A surgical team at Bahrain’s Salmaniya Medical Complex has successfully performed a delicate surgery on a two-day-old baby girl born with congenital duodenal obstruction.

She is presently kept under observation in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.

Health Ministry assistant under-secretary for planning and training and paediatric surgery consultant Dr Mohammed Al Awadhi said the surgery took about one-and-a-half-hours and the baby’s condition is stable.

She can be nursed normally as soon as she completes her recovery, he said.

SMC paediatric surgery consultant Dr Fayza Haydar said the incidence of congenital duodenal obstruction in general is estimated to be one in 5,000 live births worldwide.

Bahrain has witnessed about five similar cases over the past 25 years. - TradeArabia News Service
