Episode Summary

Train-Wreck Heart
Allison Lowery was born with a heart her doctors call a train wreck. It was on the wrong side of her body, it was backward and it had a hole in it. The main arteries leading to her heart were reversed. Now, Allison is due for a valve replacement. It's normally a routine operation, but not for someone with Allison's type of heart. Dr. Robert Jaquiss will have to turn on its head everything he knows about the human heart.

Tracy and Ann's newborn son, Sebastian has arteries that are transposed. Surgeon Charles Fraser will perform a six-hour surgery to switch vital arteries.moreless
