Media reports state that Dr. Muhammad Mohsin, assistant professor, paediatric cardiac electrophysiology, says the procedure has been successful without any complications. The children can be cured by highly specialized doctors through the use of a complex procedure called electrophysiology study and ablation. Due to a lack of paediatric electrophysiologists in Pakistan, the children were not able to receive adequate treatment.
