A 52 yrs old man retrieved successfully from Deep Coma
CATHETER DIRECTED THROMBOLYSIS AND THROMBOSUCTION IN A PATIENT OF CEREBRAL SINUS THROMBOSIS
Peepliyan, Mandsore resident Manohar Lal (52 years) got suddenly unconscious and was rushed to Geetanjali Hospital in emergency. He was suffering from cerebral sinus thrombosis. He underwent a procedure named Catheter Directed Thrombo Suction & Thrombolysis. The patient was treated well without open surgery.
With the help of suction, catheter got inserted in legs and was moved upward through heart to the brain, as planned by me. All the clots were removed from the brain and the blockage was removed. The residual blockages were aspirated with the help of perfusion catheter & clot bursting medicines for next 36 hours. This procedure is termed as Thrombolysis. The blood circulation in the brain became normal after the procedure and the swelling in brain also got reduced. This made the patient get retrieved from coma and started moving his hands & legs and started talking normally. The patient recovered well.
