The Doctors are happy to share the heartwarming story of twins, Maverick and Everly, the first-ever preemies to undergo a groundbreaking procedure after they were born with holes in their hearts.
Mom Jamie went into labor at just 24 weeks with her twins and they were each 1.9 pounds at birth and both had patient ductus arteriosus (PDA). Pediatric cardiologist Dr. Martin Bocks from University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s shares how he used the Piccolo device to repair and close the holes in the twins' hearts.
Jamie is overjoyed to share an update on the twins, telling The Doctors, "They are so fantastic now. They don't even have scars from the surgery." Jamie, who has endured fertility issues over the years and lost 4 babies prior, says she feared the worst when she went into labor at just 24 weeks. "We felt pretty positive we were never going to bring them home," she recounts.
Dr. Bocks shares the Piccolo device spared the twins from having to undergo open-heart surgery and allows the surgery to be done going through the groin area in a very minimally invasive manner.
A PDA can occur in 50 to 60 percent of premature babies and Dr. Bocks explains that around 20 percent of those babies will have to have it closed.
The Doctors surprise mom Jamie and her twins with two strollers from UPPAbaby and a year’s supply of diapers and a bundle of baby products from Hello Bello. *Hello Bello is owned, in part, by The Doctors executive producer.
