Rheumatic Heart Disease Videos
Video on Youtube.com from the Sudanese Children Heart Society Website 2017.
The Girl with Rheumatic Heart Disease.
This video was prepared on the initiative of the Sudan Society of Pediatric Cardiology and was recently available online. Since this is no longer the case, I reload it on this channel. The video shows very emotionally the suffering of a Sudanese girl, in which after a purulent streptococcal tonsillitis a serious heart defect has developed, which necessitates heart surgery. Since the family has no money for the operation, the girl ultimately dies.
