Bengaluru Hospital saves Pakistani heart patient

Bengaluru: A complicated heart surgery was performed on a 39-year-old Pakistani heart patient at a private hospital here and saved him from a life-threatening situation, a hospital official said on Friday.

Jain Institute of Vascular Sciences (Jivas) director and vascular surgeon K.R. Suresh expressed the patient’s details in a statement today.

Though Anwar was initially treated in his native city (Karachi) for back and chest pain in 2008, he had a history of hypertension, jeopardizing his young life,

A CT scan, however, revealed Anwar’s heart had an artery that supplies blood to vital organs split into two, affecting the blood supply to other parts of the body.

He (Anwar) was given the option of going to the US or Bengaluru. He came to us on November 9 for treatment as his life was at stake, as the scan confirmed a spiral split in the blood supply, said Suresh.

The split involved both arteries supplying the intestines and kidneys were shrunken from lack of blood supply.

A team of doctors, including Vivekananda, Visnu and Sumanth Raj performed the surgery after providing an alternate route for supplying blood to the intestines and fix a stent graft to prevent blood leaking.

In the first stage, a bypass was made to intestines and liver with an artificial graft from left leg’s arteries. Anwar recovered well to have a stent graft inserted in a week through a small incision in the right groin, said Suresh.

Recovering from a life-saving surgery swiftly, Anwar is having a normal diet, taking long walks and raring to return home soon.

Jivas is part of the Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain Hospital here.
