July 18, 2003 19:59 IST

The Pakistani baby girl Noor Fatima was taken off the ventilator on Friday, four days after she underwent an open heart surgery at a cardiac speciality hospital in Bangalore, the doctors attending to her said.

"She is looking all right. Her vital parameters are fine," Dr Rajesh Sharma, paediatric cardiac surgeon, who led the team which performed the operation on the two-and-a-half year old, told PTI.

"Noor would be kept in the intensive thoracic unit "for at least another two days," he said.

Noor, who travelled on the Lahore-Delhi bus on Friday last, underwent the operation for ventricular septal defect with pulmonary stenosis on Tuesday.

According to doctors, the nearly six-hour surgery was performed to plug two holes in the heart and involved removal of obstruction to blood flow from the right ventricle to the pulmonary artery.
