SHREE MAHAVIR JAIN HOSPITAL SUCCESSFULLY CONDUCTS CRANIOTOMY ON 12-YEAR-OLD GIRL
A 12-year-old girl underwent successful Parieto-occipital craniotomy with evacuation of EDH with temporal bone fracture repair with plating and cranioplasty done by Dr. Amit Aiwale at Shree Mahavir Jain Hospital. The unconscious child was brought to the hospital by the family members after a traumatic accident. The physicians examined her at casualty and found that she had severe damage to the brain. The swelling of the left parietal area was found to be accompanied by a moderate-sized extra-dural hematoma that extended into the parieto-temporal region, compressing the left cerebral hemisphere and shifting the midline to the right. At the site of the bleeding, there was also a minor fracture of the left parietal bone that extended to the sphenoid. Therefore, Dr. Amit Aiwale performed emergency cranioplasty surgery along with the evacuation of EDH.
Extra Dural hemorrhage (EDH) is a situation where very serious bleeding occurs inside the skull, causing symptoms such as drowsiness, increased risk of slipping into a coma, and a need for a ventilator, potentially resulting in death.
“Given the urgency of the situation, every second counts, and it’s essential to operate on the patient within the “golden hour”. The PICU headed by Dr. Shailesh Gopanpallikar & Pediatrician Dr. Suhas Kulkarni and casualty team at Shree Mahavir Jain Hospital responded quickly to the emergency, preparing the patient and transferring them to the operating theatre without any lag, ensuring that all protocols were followed. We are thrilled that, as a PICU team, we are progressing towards providing the latest state-of-the-art & protocols and emergency care for pediatric patients.” Says Dr. Amit Aiwale, Neurosurgeon & Anesthetist Dr. Sudarshan Pawar, Shree Mahavir Jain Hospital.
