Assam: AMCH doctors remove 30-kg ovarian mass from 16-year-old girl in Dibrugarh
The emergency gynecology and anaesthesia team of Assam Medical College & Hospital (AMCH), Dibrugarh, successfully removed an ovarian mass of around 30 kg from a 16-year-old girl.
AMCH principal cum chief Superintendent Sanjiv Kakati said the girl was in a very critical condition because of intubation difficulty at the first attempt, but senior VA Dr Karuna Das successfully resuscitated and intubated her after a technically challenging manner.
“Patient’s vitals were stable after extubation and she was fine. The mass was densely adherent and had a large fluid creating the girl’s daily livelihood as a very difficult one and she had to undergo a life saving emergency operation,” Kakati said.
“It was a significant achievement in the history of AMCH because the doctors of AMCH have proved their capability once again. We are very proud of our doctors,” Kakati said.
He added, “It was a critical surgery which took a long time to perform, but our team of senior doctors have successfully done the surgery,” he added.
