Aligarh: The paediatric surgeons at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Aligarh Muslim University has rendered an exemplary job by operating a child, Deepu, successfully with about 8 inch rod stuck in his abdomen. It took about 8 hours for the doctors to remove the rod from boy’s abdomen.
The Paedriatic surgeon, Prof. R. M. Chana and his associates, Dr. Sartaj Wali Khan, Dr. Shahbaz Fareedi and Dr. Shoaib Akhtar, of Department of Surgery performed the surgery and successfully removed the 8 inch rod from the abdomen of the six years old child, Deepu of Khurrampur Village, Marhara, District Kanshiram Nagar. The rod was stuck in his abdomen when the boy fell down from a tree.
Prof. Chana told that the most difficult problem was that the bent side of the rod was stuck in the cavity between the boy’s intestine and lever and it could damage on both sides. However, the doctors were able to remove the rod safely. Prof. R. M. Chana said that the child is feeling relieved and he will be able to take liquidated food in a couple of days. He said that for the first time such a challenging operation has been carried out in Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College.
