Update from Dr Drant ..
~ Good news! The measurements of Riley’s aorta from his recent cath are stable and show that his aorta is not dilating out of proportion to his body growth. The measurements of the ascending aorta (between the donor aorta and his aortic arch) fall into the upper limit of normal-mildly dilated range.
Still waiting for results from pulmonary. Emailed Dr Josephson who actually is in Boston at a Heart/Lung Transplant Conference. She is reaching out to the team back at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Hopefully we’ll have results soon.
