The three-week-old baby survived after undergoing an operation to insert into her chest.
This British girl named (Vanellope Hope Wilkins) was born last November with a very rare health condition that causes her heart to break out of her body.

The doctor supervising her case indicated that he specializes in heart problems that affect children, however, this child’s case is the second of its kind in 30 years of practicing the profession, and she is the first child to survive surgery in the UK.
The doctor had warned the baby’s mother during pregnancy, that her heart and part of her stomach were growing outside her body, and he was able to detect this by undergoing an examination, however, the parents decided to fight for the baby.
In order to reduce the complications associated with this health condition in, the mother underwent the supervision of four teams of specialized doctors, and then the child was placed in a special bag in order to reduce her heart from any infection and in order to maintain the moisture of the exposed tissues.
