23-APR-2019: JNMC surgeons remove rare tumour from man's gluteal region
Aligarh, April 23: Sixty-year-old, Hardum Singh would not have been sitting comfortably in his Iglas residence after getting rid of severe pain in his legs making him weak and emaciated, if a rare vascular tumour in his gluteal region was not removed by a team of cardiovacsular surgeons of the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College (JNMC), Aligarh Muslim University (AMU).
Following the excision of the tumour in a four-hour long surgery, Hardum is doing well and shows no signs of recurrence. He was discharged and instructed to follow up on need basis.
After consulting many doctors in New Delhi and NCR, Hardum reached JNMC where a two-stage operation strategy was devised to remove the tumour in his gluteal area arising from abdominal blood vessels.
Before the surgery, interventional cardiologists, Prof Asif Hasan (Director, Centre of Cardiology) and Dr Malik M Azharuddin at the Cath Lab decreased the blood supply of the tumour. Dr Mohd Azam Haseen and Dr Ghazanfar performed the surgery to remove the lump under the guidance of renowned cardiovacsular surgeon and AMU Pro Vice Chancellor, Prof M H Beg.
Dr Nadeem Raza and his team provided the patient with the anaesthesia, while Dr Ilmul, Dr Urooj, Dr Ateeq and Dr Yashwanth took the post-operative care.
Congratulating the surgery team; Pro Vice Chancellor, Prof M H Beg and Prof S C Sharma (Dean, Faculty of Medicine) said that JNMC is doing complex surgeries for which patients were earlier referred to hospitals in metropolitan cities.
Dr Mohd Azam Haseen (Chairperson, department of cardiothoracic surgery) said that the surgery was done at a very nominal cost affordable to people from lower economic strata.
Speaking about the surgery, Dr Malik Mohd Azharuddin (Centre of Cardiology) said that the procedure of decreasing blood supply of such tumors enables surgeons to safely remove the lump.
"Every artery of the patient was cannulated and closed with cyano-acrylate glue," he added.
The JNMC surgeons further said that Hardum couldn't afford the surgery in private hospitals where he was also informed that the procedure was risky involving massive blood loss.
