Visakhapatnam, 30th December 2020: A 60-year-old patient from East Godavari district, who is suffering from a rare heart ailment was done cover stunting and immediate bypass surgery at KIMS ICON hospitals, Visakhapatnam to save his life. The patient is a farmer from Tuni area. He came to KIMS ICON hospitals with a complaint of pain in the chest.  He felt it's quite common. But, when Dr. Damodar Rao, Consultant Cardiologist at KIMS ICON hospitals tested him, he found something wrong and made a complete medical examination. Then he observed some hemorrhage around the heart. The blood that comes from arteries will usually stay around the heart, increases the pressure, and lowers BP which may lead to the death of the patient too. This is called pseudoaneurysm in medical terminology. This formed below the already existing stunt. To cover this, a covered stent was placed, and that the entire area is covered. Even then, in some cases, the stunt may close and the problem may reoccur. So, to arrest this issue, coronary bypass surgery was done. On the surgery table, doctors found that a wire from the previous angioplasty came out.

 

"Pseudoaneurysm is a very rare problem. I have seen only three cases in my entire career", said Dr. Damodar Rao. The patient was discharged and even came for follow up, he told. Doctors advised the patient not to smoke and booze in the future and take complete care about his heart.
