Young Naziya, who complained about pain in the chest and other body parts, was brought to SDM Narayana Heart Centre at Dharwad, for treatment. Dr. Shivaprasad Mukkannavar, Consultant Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeon, who treated the little girl says that Naziya’s case was peculiar. Her body organs were like a mirror-image pattern, and the condition is called situs inversus dextrocardia. Unlike normal people, her heart was on the right side, liver on the left side and stomach on the right side. Several tests were undertaken and surgery was performed successfully. The surgery involves stopping the heart for a stipulated time, which was extremely challenging.
