In a really vital operation, a staff of medical doctors on the Assam Medical College and Hospital (AMCH) on Wednesday eliminated an ovarian tumour weighing 30 kg from a 16-year-old lady, a senior medical practitioner of the institution stated.
AMCH Principal Sanjiv Kakati stated that the lady, from Panitola in Golaghat district, was admitted to the hospital round every week again and was in a really vital situation as a result of intubation difficulties on the first try.
“Later, our senior doctor Karuna Das successfully resuscitated and intubated her after a technically challenging manoeuvre.
“It was densely adherent and had a big fluid mass making the lady’s every day life very tough. She needed to bear a life-saving emergency operation,” Kakati said.
Though the surgery was not scheduled for Wednesday, the emergency operation was conducted after the girl complained of breathing problems in the morning and she was operated with ventilator support, he said.
The AMCH’s emergency gynaecology and anaesthesia team, led by Professor R Sonowal along with his colleagues Dr Pranati Dutta and Dr Aiswarya Lekshmi conducted the four-hour long very critical surgery, Kakati said.
“We are completely satisfied to share that our medical doctors efficiently eliminated the ovarian mass of round 30 kg from the lady after the very difficult surgical procedure. During the operation, she was given three models of blood,” the AMCH principal stated.
The affected person’s vitals are steady after extubation and he or she has been saved below statement within the High Dependence Unit (HDU), he added.
