Tiny preemie survives pioneering surgery

A tiny, 700-gram premature boy has survived heart surgery and is expected to have no long-term problems. Doctors originally expected the tot to die, but a pediatric cardiac surgeon heard of the case and took on the task of making repairs to the vessels surrounding the boy's grape-sized heart.
