month-old baby suffering
from a rare heart disease
called congenital mit-
ralstenosis. It was the first
time that an operation of
this type was successfully
performed on a baby so
small.
Soon after she was born,
at a normal weight of 61/2
pounds, Oshrit Kashi of
Holon was diagnosed as
having a cardiac disease: a
valve separating the left
upper from the left lower
chamber of her heart was
severely underdeveloped.
In cases such as these
the doctors must delay
the necessary operation
until the baby has grown
considerably larger — at
least two years — in order
to minimize the high risk
involved.
"There is no proper, well-
functioning artificial valve
for a baby so small," ex-
plains Dr. Levy, pinpoint-
ing the essence of the prob-
lem.
At 10 months, weighing
only 9 lbs. 9 ozs., Oshrit
could wait no longer. Suffer-
ing from heart falure, with
fluids accumulating in her
body, she was fighting for

every breath.
Dr. Levy had already or-
dered a special 19-
millimeter-diameter heart
valve from abroad, and
when it became clear that
Oshrit could not survive
more than a few weeks, he
decided to take the gamble.
The complex operation
took six hours, and the chal-
lenge lay in fitting the rela-
tively large valve into the
tiny egg-size heart which
weighed less than two
ounces, complicated by the
fact that the baby was in an
extremely weakened condi-
tion. Using an original
technique the surgical team
succeeded against all odds.
It is no coincidence that
this medical break-
through took place at
Beilinson Hospital in
Petah Tikva, one of the
two largest hospitals in
Israel. Ever since 1965,
when Dr. Levy was ap-
pointed head of its new
Department of Thoracic
Cardiovascular Surgery,
Beilinson has been a
pioneer in open heart
surgery.
Dr. Levy, who is also pro-
fessor of surgery at Tel Aviv
University Medical School,
with which Beilinson is
associated, had spent six
years in the U.S. where he
completed post-graduate
studies in cardiac surgery at
Harvard and was associate
professor of surgery at the
University of Minnesota. A
Holocaust survivor, he ar-
rived in Israel in 1950 as a
medical school graduate
from his native Bulgaria.
We walk through the
modern seventh floor car-
diovascular surgery ward,
past the lively pediatric
room and the rooms for
adult patients, into the in-
tensive care unit where
each patient's heartbeats —
even those of a tiny two-
week-old baby sleeping
peacefully on his cot — proj-
ect running lines on TV sc-
reens; past the students' lec-
ture room with -its TV
hooked up to the operating
theater.
Although visiting hours
have not yet begun, the
ward is alive with family,
food and flowers. Certain
rules, apparently, are made
to be bent in Dr. Levy's
ward.

Father-Son
Relationship

32969 Hamilton Court Blvd., Farmington, Michigan

In response to the ques-
tion of whether he and his
father, actor Kirk Douglas,
are buddies, Michael Doug-
las recently replied:
"I think Dad finally feels
purged of his guilts and, like
any Jewish father, he had
many. As I've gotten older
I've been able to see him as
the man, not the image.
"Today, we are very close,
but we'll never be buddies.
He will always be 'Father,'
and I'll always be his kid."
