The defect usually results in fatal damage [to the liver from accumulated bile. Suruga told newsmen following the operation on Jennifer, who is 6% months old, that the best chance of success comes if the baby is two months old and that a baby six months or older has a small chance of recovery. He said Jennifer's chances of recovery depended on how Well her liver could reconstitute itself. Theresa arrived late Wednes day with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Decorah. Suruga cancelled his day off today to examine her in his office. Decorah told UPI after Sugura examined his daughter that more tests are needed and that his daughter may remain in Tokyo for a week before the doctor decides to operate.
