Patient :Sir My wife in 6 Months and 2 weeks pregnant. During the 5th month anomaly scan the Doctors identified that the baby has accumulated fluid in the chest and it has moved the heart to its right. Genetics, test and various blood test have come normal. As part of cure, the liquid was removed at the start of 7th month once, which accumulated back with in 24 hrs. Hence Dr. suggested we insert a shunt, while the placing the shunt fell in to the thorax and is now inside the babies body. What do you think are the consequences of this and what do you suggest we do. I am confused, the means of solution have now added to the problem.
