Teen “jokingly” asked his mother, who worked as a doctor, to listen to his stethoscope. The woman agreed and accidentally discovered he had the deadly disease, writes .
13-year-old Briton George Ashby went to my mother at work and “just” decided to ask her to listen to it with a stethoscope. The woman agreed and found the son of a loud heart murmur, and then decided that it was necessary to examine him, but the guy didn’t say anything.
The British turned to the family doctor. The result was that the boy had a coarctation of the aorta is a vessel narrowed from two inches to less than four millimeters. He installed a stent, which expanded the aorta to 13 mm, although in the future he may need surgery.
The boy’s mother said that if I just ignored him, he would have died during the year. She also said that a month before, her son became harder to given exercise, he complained of leg pain, no other symptoms were not.
Additionally, the coarctation of the aorta – a congenital heart defect, which manifests in the narrowing of the lumen of the aorta, which heart is pumping the blood.
Earlier it was reported that the mother took video of her daughter and saved her life.
