After the incredible operation at the University Hospital of Toulouse, which the little Alex has saved, his parents testify

Alex, 13 months old, was rescued from a very rare deformity of the heart thanks to even more rare surgery at the children's hospital in Toulouse last April. The doctor and the parents tell it. Squeezed into the arms of his father, Alex wags his brown curls. His mother made sure to give him a pink shirt to string his little shoes.

Arriving from Rodez she lives in the Mandalyan family in the children's hospital. Here Alex has been operated twice and is always followed. "Of course he recognizes me! I've seen him since his birth," says Dr. Fabio Cuttone, cardiac surgeon at the University Hospital of Toulouse.

Last April the doctor operated the baby, at the age of seven months, from a conotonic rotation, an extremely rare and complex form of cardiac malformation that sentenced him to death. The surgeon had already intervened on his left artery several days after Alex's birth in August 2017.
