Sergei Titov Arrives from Russia

 | Published on 1/23/2011
Sergei is an active four-year-old child. You’d never know he had a life threatening heart defect. Sergei has a PDA (patent ductus arteriosus), a condition in which a blood vessel fails to close normally after birth. As a result, he has abnormal blood flow between the aorta and pulmonary artery, two major blood vessels that surround the heart. If the PDA is not closed, Sergei risks heart failure, bleeding in the lungs, problems with lung development, or endocarditis (an infection of the inner lining of the heart). His mother Kristina is very concerned about his condition and the upcoming surgery.
