An echocardiogram soon revealed that Paul had five serious congenital heart defects. Without emergency surgery within days – he would die. Dr. Richard Jonas performed an eight hour open heart surgery on Paul when he was 12 days old. The “fix” included inserting what’s called a homograft – a donated baby aorta that connects Paul’s pulmonary artery with the right ventricle of his heart. The donated connector does not grow with him and at 10 months old Paul went in for his 2nd open heart surgery to have it replaced with a bigger version.
Since that time, Paul has had numerous angioplasties to open his arteries and to clear the homograft. In September of 2013, Dr. Jonas performed a 3rd successful open heart surgery on Paul.
