Ethiopian man undergoes surgery for 1.25 kg tumour in abdomen
Mohammed was diagnosed with the 1.25-kg tumour in the abdominal cavity that had led to displacement of internal structures in his stomach, they said.
A 32-year-old Ethiopian man got a new lease of life after undergoing a surgery for removal of a rare tumour from his abdomen at a city hospital, doctors said today.
"The rarity of this case, lies in the fact that the retroperitoneal tumour was densely stuck to celiac plexus and enchasing the splenic artery (blood vessel that supplies oxygenated blood to the spleen) and hepatic artery (which distributes blood to the liver, pancreas and gallbladder as well as to the stomach and duodenal portion of the small intestine).
"In such cases, complete excision is not possible normally, if tried, it will injure splenic and hepatic artery which could be fatal to the patient," Vivek Vij, Director, Liver Transplant at Fortis Hospital here, said.
In a statement issued by the hospital, Sanjay Verma, Senior Consultant, Minimal Access, Bariatric Surgery, said, "In the post-operative period, a USG Colour Doppler test was used to confirm the vascularity of the spleen and the normal flow of blood in the celiac axis and the hepatic artery."
