The cardiology team of City’s NewEra Hospital and Research Center Successfully saved the life of a 50-Years old man who had ventricular septal perforation following a heart attack.
The 50-year-oldKamtaprasadDewangan patient had an acute heart attack leading to perforation in his heart. This is one of the rare and deadly complications of heart attack, with a death rate of more than 90%.
Dr. Nidheesh Mishra said,” this complication requires high-risk open heart surgery which itself carries 15-20% death risk. Another option to avoid this surgery is closing this defect with the device without surgery but such complicated procedures are usually performed only in larger cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, the, etc main reason behind this is the lack of a dedicated and skilled cardiac surgical team and cutting edge technology.”
NewEra hospital cardiology team took this as a challenge and planned closure of this defect by septal occlude device. This procedure was performed on the 23rd of November, which was successful, patient improved and was discharged in stable condition on November 26, 2022. This procedure was performed by a NewEra team of doctors led by Dr. Nidheesh Mishra, Dr. Anand Sancheti and assisted by Dr. Sandip Dhoot, Dr. Manish Choukhandre, Dr. AyushmaJejani, and other Cath lab staff.
