Heart-liver link saves Iraqi

GURUGRAM (India)

Indian Doctors in Gurgaon in Haryana gave a 21-year-old Iraqi woman another chance to live by conducting a rare surgery that connected her liver directly to the heart.

The patient suffered from a rare genetic condition in which blood clots prevented the blood flow in and out of the liver.

Doctors in Iran had diagnosed her with the rare genetic disorder called Budd Chiari Syndrome.

It all started in 2014, when 21-year-old Bnar Satar Mala started turning pale, then yellow, with severe pain shooting down the left shoulder to her arm and soon developed into swelling in her limbs and abdomen.
