What is plastic bronchitis? What are the red flags that lead to a diagnosis of plastic bronchitis and how is it diagnosed? More importantly, what can be done about it? Today’s guest will answer those questions for us and more!
Molly Fee is a mom of two boys and lives SE of Pittsburg. Her 9-year-old younger son, Marshall, was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome or HLHS. Marshall had his Fontan Procedure at age 4, and also has a repaired tricuspid valve. About 18 months ago, Marshall was diagnosed with a rare complication associated with complex congenital heart defects, called “plastic bronchitis.” In today’s program, we’re going to learn what plastic bronchitis is, how one American family has dealt with this condition, and what advice they have for others living with plastic bronchitis.
