Pulmonary Artery Reconstruction Patient Stories

Nicholas

Nicholas was born without a pulmonary artery, the vessel that carries blood from the heart to the lungs for oxygenation. Lifelong care from the Pulmonary Artery Reconstruction (PAR) program at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford has helped Nicholas achieve more than anyone might ever have imagined. Nicholas, now 13, recently ran the fastest mile in his class and was a first pick for the flag football team at his school in South Carolina, where he was born.
