Baby is discharged after uniquely successful fetal heart procedure at University Hospitals

CLEVELAND – A newborn boy, who underwent a successful in utero procedure at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital (UH Rainbow) at 24 weeks of gestation, was born full-term and discharged with his mother at just four days old. The Congenital Heart Collaborative, in conjunction with UH MacDonald Women’s Hospital, is the only program in Ohio to offer the in utero procedure known as Fetal Aortic Valvuloplasty.
“When I first met the family, their goal was to have a few hours to hold him before he passed away,” says James Strainic, MD, Director, Fetal Heart Program at UH Rainbow. “Having the opportunity to watch the parents bring in his car seat to go home without having to undergo any procedures, was a very humbling and emotional experience. We could not have asked for a better outcome.”
Fetal Aortic Valvuloplasty is a unique procedure that uses ultrasound guidance and a catheter-based approach to gain access to the fetal heart, subsequently opening the aortic valve using a tiny inflated balloon. This increases blood flow through the left ventricle of the heart to help its development and prevent the progression of hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS).
