Glenn Surgery in Bangladesh
Congenital heart surgeons complete the Glenn operation by rerouting the baby’s blood supply from the upper body to the lungs. They do this by linking the superior vena cava to the pulmonary artery, which is a long vein that carries oxygen-poor blood from the upper body (head and arms) to the heart. As a result, the blood will bypass the heart entirely and flow directly to the lungs. This redirect indicates that the Norwood procedure’s temporary shunt is no longer needed and should be removed.
Your baby’s heart will no longer have to work twice as hard after the Glenn operation, and the chance of complications will be reduced.
