  • Infant swallows pin,saved after surgery

Mira Road doctors saved the life of a 11-month-old girl from Bhayander, who swallowed a safety pin that got stuck in her esophagus (food pipe) last week.

The girl’s mother said she realised something was wrong after the infant began crying profusely and refused to drink water or milk. The woman took her daughter to the family paediatrician, who saw the pin on a chest X-ray.

She then took the infant to Wockhardt Hospital, Mira Road, where ENT surgeon Dr Neepa Vellimuttam examined the child and ruled out respiratory distress. Images showed that the open safety pin was embedded in the pharynx wall, but had not pierced it.

After an hour-long surgery, the pin was retrieved without any injury or trauma to the infant’s upper gastrointestinal tract.

Big congratulations to Dr Lalit Verma and Dr Neepa Vellimuttam, Wockhardt Hospitals Mira Road and clinical team members who proved “Life wins’.
