Dr. Asha Subbalakshmi decided to remove the pin endoscopically and saved the life of the patient. The surgery was for one and half hour and the pin was removed successfully.
Elucidating on the case details, Dr. Asha Subbalakshmi explained, “The young boy almost lost his life to this sharp pin as the pin can decorate and rupture his small intestine which can be life-threatening. The small intestine has a narrow lumen compared to the stomach; hence, removal of any sharp foreign object from the small intestine is an extremely complex task that needs lots of skill and expertise.”
“We urge people to be more careful with such things and appeal to the people to come to us for any of such emergencies,” she added.
On successful removal of the pin, the boy’s family were delighted. The boy is recovering well and will be discharged in a few days. Such Skillful surgeries are performed at very few hospitals and Medicover Hospitals is proud to be one among them. This case is yet another reminder of the achievements of Medicover Hospitals.
Dr. Asha Subbalakshmi, Dr. Abhignya from Medicover Hospitals and Dr. Kumar from Magna Hospital – Shadnagar, were also present in the press conference.
