Drs. Craig Sable and Stephanie Lacey screened patients yesterday and we had our first multidisciplinary surgical case conference. With our two Ugandan Cardiac Surgeons (Dr John Omagino and Dr Tom Mwambu), Cardiologist (Dr Peter Lwaba), and our team (cardiac surgeon, anesthesiologist, cardiologists and intensivists). Conference was quite interesting, interactive, and necessary for the final planning of the next week. We have chosen to move ahead with the following schedule:
Wedsday: 12 year old Atrial Septal Defect closure (bypass case)
Thursday: 13 year old PDA one TBA (this patient canceled)
Friday: two ASD closures (ages 2 years and 5 years)
Saturday: 4 year old ventricular septal defect
Monday: 12 year old with subaortic membrane with severe left ventricular outflow track obstruction and a 15 year old PDA
Tuesday: 4 year old ASD
We'll let you know how things are going, day by day...
WISH US GOOD LUCK!!
