Apollo Hospital

Hyderabad, January 17, 2022: A patient in a life and death condition due to a deep cut in the neck suffered from kite Manja thread, was successfully treated by Apollo Hospitals, Hyderguda cardiovascular surgeons with major surgery, yesterday. The 22-year-old male patient, Mr Ayaan, was profusely bleeding from the neck when brought to the emergency room of the Hospital. Though in a precarious condition, early intervention of the Cardiovascular surgical team at Apollo Hospital, Hyderguda, helped in saving his life.

He was rushed to the operation theatre without losing time. He seemed pale and had an abnormally rapid heart rate with reasonable blood pressure. The injury was intense and had severed several blood vessels including external jugular, thyroid gland and neck muscles. The windpipe too had a cut but the injury didn’t protrude deep inside the airway. Considering the extensive internal injuries, any delay in his arrival and performing of the surgery would have proved fatal.

Dr K Venkat Reddy, Senior Consultant & Chief Cardiac Surgeon; and a team of specialist surgeons; sutured the vessels quickly and stopped the severe bleeding, later neck muscles were approximated and helped stabilize the patient. Later skin and the subcutaneous tissues were approximated and the patient was shifted to ICU care. The patient has since recovered, is conscious, coherent, hemodynamically stable and started taking a soft diet in ICU.
