Surgeons reconfirm the hands of the victim of the sword fight in a 10-hour operation after he cut them off in a street fight
- GRAPHIC CONTENT WARNING: A man was attacked with a sword on the street
- His hands were & # 39; 98 percent cut off & # 39 ;, his surgeon said, but reconnected by doctors
- They spent 10 hours reassembling his bones, muscles, and blood vessels
A man is expected to regain the use of his hands after surgeons reattached them when they were almost cut off in a street fight.
Suresh Sen was attacked by a few criminals waving a sword, he says, and arrived at the hospital with his hands hanging on a wire.
Surgeons brought him to the operating room and it took 10 hours to rebuild his muscles, nerves, tendons and bones on July 15.
Sen spent 12 hours in intensive care and another 12 days in hospital until he was released last week to embark on the long road to recovery.
Suresh Sen, pictured with his surgeon Dr. Sushil Nahar, immediately needed medical help after he had almost completely chopped off his hands by two men with a sword in a fight
Surgeons led by Dr. Sushil Nahar, at the Goyal Hospital and Research Center in Jodhpur, Rajasthan – about 370 miles (600 km) southwest of New Delhi – led the operation.
Dr. Nahar said: & Sen was admitted to the hospital in critical condition. Both his arms were almost 98 percent cut out of his hands.
& # 39; We had to perform the bilateral hand re-implantation operation in two teams, because a lot of blood had already been lost from his body, which could have been fatal. & # 39;
Mr. Sen reportedly had a fight that got out of hand and was eventually attacked with a sword.
Due to the horrific injuries, two teams of surgeons – one on each hand – had to operate simultaneously to save his limbs.
This could have shortened the duration of the operation and possibly improved Mr Sen's chances of recovery.
He is expected to need at least nine months to a year to restore the ability to use his hands normally.
And doctors advised him not to touch anything particularly hot or cold at that time.
Dr. Nahar said that Mr. Sen's injuries were so serious that he almost bled to death. Two teams of surgeons worked on him, simultaneously repairing a hand to save his limbs
During a 10-hour marathon, doctors were able to repair Mr Sen's bones, muscles, blood vessels, tendons and nerves and hope that he will regain the use of his hands within the next nine months to a year.
During the operation, the surgical crew, including advisers Dr. Dr. Narendra Yadav, Dr. Shobha Parekh, Dr. Kamal and orthopedic experts and anaesthesiologists, reconfirming every part of Mr. Sen's hands that were only attached through the skin.
This meant that the bones were melted together again, the nerves, tendons and muscles were carefully attached to his wrists and the skin was sutured to close the wounds.
Dr. Nahar added: “We saved about six hours of surgery when the two teams of surgeons operated on both hands at the same time.
& # 39; We repaired the bones, tendons, and connected arteries and veins to restore blood flow to the hand. & # 39;
Although cases of bilateral hand re-implantation have been reported from many states in India, this is the first such operation to be reported from the state of Rajasthan, with a population of nearly 70 million people.
THE FEET OF MAN IS JUSTIFIED AFTER BEING KILLED IN AN INDUSTRIAL BLENDER
A factory worker has learned again how to walk after his feet are cut off in an accident and sewn on again.
The nameless man's legs got caught in a ribbon mixer, often used to mix dry solids, in December 2016 while working a night shift in his native Bangkok.
Paramedics picked up the torn off feet of the patient and brought him to the hospital.
Shortly after midnight, doctors called a top-level reconstructive surgeon, who got out of bed and reportedly rushed to the emergency room.
The medic continued to work all night, re-attaching the bones, ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves of the unidentified patient before inserting steel bars to hold the severed limbs in place.
An unnamed man has again learned how to walk after his feet are cut off in an accident and sewn on again. The limbs of the factory worker got stuck in a machine during a night shift
The man's feet were completely chopped off, as were the toes on his right foot
Almost three years later, the man only learned how to walk again and returned to work in the same factory.
Reportedly, the man fainted during the accident. When he woke up, he was surprised to discover that he was not only alive, but also that his feet were attached again.
When surgeon Dr. Wichit Siritattamrong received the call & # 39; late at night, he hurried to the private Chulalat Hospital 3, where the patient was being held. The operation lasted seven hours.
Due to the seriousness of the man's condition, the medic placed a steel bar around his legs, which remained there for three months.
Internal rods were left in place for another two years to allow his legs to retain their shape while his bone converged.
& # 39; After two years without walking, the brain has forgotten how to walk, & # 39; said Dr. Siritattamrong.
& # 39; The man had to re-learn the process, which cost him almost a year.
& # 39; It has taken three years of rehabilitation, but he can walk around almost like a normal person. & # 39;
