 Kadiatou Diallo is born on the 2nd of May 2000 in the Republic of Guinea Conakry.

Her father is a poor farmer with a harvest of approximately 20 sacks of rice per year. Her mother is a housewife and is working occasionally as a shop-assistant.

 The disease of Kadiatou came in an insidious manner after multiple anginas accompanied by fever and articulation pains which are considered in African countries as something of banal and are not sufficiently treated.

The beginning two years ago of the exhaustion and of the difficulty in breathing which is due to valvular  cardiac lesions witness that the disease advanced. Initially they were episodic during the efforts but later they progressed and became permanent even during the breaks and made impossible any movements. Kadiatou is not able to play with her friends and stays all the time at home.

Her feet are swollen and she can sleep only in a half-sitting position because she cannot breathe if she is lying. The medical treatment which she gets, allows to temper the symptoms in expectation of the surgical operation. She could live without the cardiac surgery a couple of months only; one to two years at maximum.

 The diagnosis of the girl is the following:

Cardiac rheumatic polyvalvulopathy with:

  1. mitral valve stenosis
  2. aortic insufficiency
  3. tricuspid insufficiency
  4. dilatation of the cardiac cavities left and right, cardiac insufficiency.

 Kadiatou came to Switzerland in March 2010 with the assistance of Enfance et vie Fondation Rogeau for a surgical cardiac operation.

The operation took place on the 28th of April 2010 and was consisting of a valvular mitral and aortic reparation executed by Prof. Kalangos at the University Hospital of Geneva. A further operation was executed on the 29th of April 2010 by reason of a strong aortic residual insufficiency. A replacement of the aortic valve by a bio-prosthesis MedTronic no 23 (Prof. Kalangos) has been done.

 The both surgical operations contributed enormously to Kadiatou’s recovery. She has to follow 15 days of medical care in her country and has to be protected against bacterial endocarditis  in case of dental care and in case of infected surgery.

 We express our profound gratitude to the Fondation Terre des hommes, Lausanne, to Prof. Afksendyios Kalangos and to the University Hospital of Geneva for an excellent co-operation and for the fact that Kadiatou could return to Guinea in good health and very joyful. Kadiatou Diallo est née le 2 mai 2000 dans la République de Guinée Conakry.

 Son père est paysan cultivateur récoltant environ 20 sacs de riz par saison. Sa mère est femme au foyer, vendeuse occasionnelle.

 La maladie de Kadiatou s’est installée de manière insidieuse au détour d’épisodes d’angines accompagnés de fièvre et de douleurs articulaires qui, dans les pays africains, sont le plus souvent pris pour quelque chose de banal à cet âge et négligées et/ou insuffisamment traitées. Le début de la fatigue et l’essoufflement trahissant l’avancement des lésions valvulaires cardiaques remonte à deux ans en arrière. D’abord épisodiques, lors d’efforts, ils sont devenus peu à peu progressifs et permanents même au repos, lui interdisant tout déplacement. Kadiatou ne peut plus jouer avec ses camarades et reste toute la journée à la maison. Elle gonfle des pieds et la nuit elle doit se reposer demi-assise car dès qu’elle s’allonge elle s’étouffe. Le traitement médical qu’elle suit ne permet que de soulager un peu les symptômes et tenir le temps de pouvoir être opérée. Sans la chirurgie cardiaque, son horizon de vie ne va pas au-delà de quelques mois, voir une année ou deux maximum.

 La fillette accuse le diagnostique suivant : polyvalvulopathie cardiaque rhumatismale avec

  1. Sténose de la valve mitrale 
  2. Fuite de la valve aortique
  3. Fuite secondaire de la valve tricuspide
  4. Dilatation des cavités cardiaques gauches et droites, insuffisance cardiaque.

Kadiatou est venue en Suisse en mars 2010 avec l’aide de l’Enfance et vie Fondation Rogeau pour subir une intervention chirurgicale au niveau du cœur.

L’opération a eu lieu le 28 avril 2010 et a consisté en une réparation valvulaire mitrale et aortique effectuée par Prof. Kalangos aux Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève. Une réintervention a été effectuée le 29 avril 2010 en raison d’une insuffisance aortique sévère résiduelle motivant un remplacement valvulaire aortique par une Bioprothèse Mosaïque MedTronic n°23 (Prof. Kalangos).

 Les deux interventions ont contribué énormément à la guérison de Kadiatou. Elle doit suivre encore des soins pendant 15 jours dans son pays d’origine et doit être protégée de l’endocardite bactérienne en cas de soins dentaires et de chirurgie potentiellement infectée.

 Nous remercions de tout notre cœur la Fondation Terre des hommes, Lausanne, le Prof. Afksendyios Kalangos et les Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève pour une excellente collaboration et pour le fait que Kadiatou retourne guérie et joyeuse en Guinée Conakry.
