Mahir Chowdhury death: Coroner backs heart op doctors

An inquest into the death of an 11-month-old baby who suffered a rare complication following heart surgery has largely supported the actions of doctors.

The parents of Mahir Chowdhury said he seemed well before the operation at Southampton General.

They say the risks were not properly explained to them, but the coroner concluded there was no evidence to support this.

Mahir Chowdhury died after a surgical stitch blocked his artery.
