He said that they diagnosed a boy Ch Prasanna Gowtham suffering from cold, cough and fatigue at RIMS Ongole and observed that he has a hole in the wall connecting two valves and the blood circulation is compromised due to it.
He said that the boy is suffering with it since birth and surgery is required to address the problem.
