Mumbai: Man has stroke, unlocked cell phone saves life
Doctors at Wockhardt hospital, Mumbai Central successfully treated 45-year-old business man Nitin Kamat who was admitted for a brain stroke while going to work during morning hours. Nitin Kamat as per his routine was on his way to office. While on his way he got a sudden stroke. An unknown person saw him fainting and helped him. He took his phone, which was unlocked and called his wife immediately who reached on the spot.
They took him to nearby hospital, but due to unsatisfactory results they had to shift him to Wockhardt Hospital, Mumbai Central. Dr Mazda Turel, Consultant Neurosurgeon, Wockhardt Hospital, Mumbai Central, said, “It was a very emergent case. Nitin Kamat had a haemorrhage within an infarction of his right cerebral hemisphere and was rapidly deteriorating clinically. Hence we decided immediately to take him for surgery. “We removed his bone flap and placed it into the abdomen.
This procedure provides space for the swollen brain to expand outward rather than compress the vital structures within. He was then shifted in ICU. After two to three weeks we again performed the surgery to replace the bone flap and give his skull the required shape,” added Dr Mazda. He further said the patient will regained his full power in his left upper and lower limb with 6 to 8 weeks of an intense rehabilitation programme.
