Delicate heart surgery - rare condition

Baby's Protruding Heart Tucked Back Inside His Body


Amazing, just absolutely amazing.

I have never seen this defect in my 8+ years of L&D nursing. I would imagine that a great majority of these babies would die during or right after the birth process, unless it was a scheduled c/s in a major tertiary facility that could perform the surgery on the baby immediately (or shortly after the birth).
