Child deemed “inoperable” after seven surgery postponements


At ten years old, the little Scottish girl suffers from a genetic disease leading to scoliosis that becomes more and more pronounced over time.

A Scottish woman said her 10-year-old daughter’s “chances of survival” “have been sacrificed”. The child suffers from Rette syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that affects brain development and causes advanced scoliosis. Little Eva’s spine suffered such curvature and twisting that the little girl became “inoperable”, doctors told her mother.

As of May 2022, Eva’s spinal curvature was 60.89 degrees. Last year it was 107.9 degrees and today it is 110 degrees, said mother Jill Lockhart. “They waited so long, and now they say it’s too late,” she denounced. When she goes back through the events, she confides that she does not understand the situation.

“We were told last week that the operation could take place on March 28.
