New Delhi: Battered baby Falak who is fighting for her life has undergone another surgery at the AIIMS on Monday. Despite showing signs of improvements, the two-year old remains to be critical.

Baby Falak underwent a shunt surgery during which doctors at AIIMS connected her brain with the abdomen to help circulation of fluid in the whole body.

Neurosurgeon Deepak Agarwal, who is treating her said, “Water that should be circulated in the whole body got collected in the brain, thus putting pressure on the head that could be fatal for her.

“We could not conduct the surgery all these days as there was high level of infection in her brain. As soon as the culture samples of the brain started showing signs of improvement, we decided to go for it,” he said.

This was the fifth surgery that Falak has undergone since her admission in the hospital on January 18.
