Vietnamese baby discharged after foetal cardiac catheterization, first case in SE Asia

February 19, 2024

A Vietnamese baby boy, diagnosed with severe congenital heart abnormalities, recently became the first-ever case in Vietnam and Southeast Asia to undergo foetal cardiac catheterization as a remedial procedure. The successful intervention took place at Children’s Hospital 1 in Ho Chi Minh City, and the infant was discharged last week. The interventional surgeon was performed on January 4 by specialists from Tu Du Hospital and Children’s Hospital 1. Later that day, the newborn was transferred to Children’s Hospital 1 for further care and attention. This stands in contrast to other similar cases that did not undergo foetal cardiac catheterization, as highlighted by the medical team.
