Ectopia Cordis

If a baby is born with a portion of her heart outside the chest, what do you do?

Why, make a new chest, of course (video).

My gosh, that teeny heart pumping away OUTSIDE the chest!This kind of stuff has to make EVERYTHING
the medical profession goes through worth it..really worth it. Reminds me of a pediatric neurosurgeon's answer to the question what is it like to operate on a preemie..this was years ago before even in utero
surgery. " It is like sewing two pieces of wet spaghetti together
wearing oven mitts."
