City doc saves critically ill patient of split aorta, a rare heart defect : Wockhardt Hospital, Nagpur
Dr Sameet Pathak, Cardio Thoracic surgeon and Vascular Surgeon from Nagpur has saved life of a 60-year-old critically-ill patient from Amravati. By performing surgery for a rare heart defect called as ‘aortic dissection’ in which the aorta, the main blood vessel arising from the heart, gets torn or split into a two-barrel tube.
The patient required replacement of both the damaged aorta and the aortic valve. The patient, when being brought to Nagpur from Amravati, started developing heart failure and had severe chest pain along with very low blood pressure. His kidney and brain were also affected badly. The patient had also developed paralysis of left limbs. “Had the surgery not been done on time, the patient would have died within 48 hours,” Dr Pathak, who performed the surgery at Wockhardt Hospital, told Times of India.
