“A stroke is a medical emergency that needs immediate medical attention because the brain does not receive enough oxygen or nutrients, causing brain cells to die. How a person is affected by their stroke depends on where the stroke occurs in the brain and how much the brain is damaged,” informed Dr Sandeep Sharma, Senior Consultant and Head, Neuro-interventional Radiology from Fortis Hospital, Mohali. Two recent stroke cases reported at the hospital were successfully treated.

“A stroke also called as a ‘brain attack’, occurs when the blood flow to an area in the brain is blocked.  There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding,” informed Dr. Sharma. He further informed that in the hemorrhagic stroke, there is a brain aneurysm burst or a weakened blood vessel leak (hemorrhagic), which is one of the two types of stroke.  While it is the least common of the two types of stroke; it most often results in death. Whereas, an ischemic stroke is one in which the blood vessel carrying blood to the brain is blocked by a blood clot (ischemic).

Giving details about cases, Dr Sandeep Sharma said, Mr Ram Nath, 50 years old came to the hospital with complaints of severe headache, followed by loss of consciousness. He had an earlier history of seizure. ‘’Patient had a very big brain artery balloon like swelling rupture a day before. He went from one hospital to the other but his case was complicated due to large size of aneurysm and Endovascular coiling was performed. He underwent the procedure same day and was discharged within two days”, added Dr. Sharma.

Citing another case, Dr Sharma said, “A 57 year-old patient was brought to emergency with complaints of high grade fever and vomiting. They came to the hospital after 10 hours had lapsed and Mechanical Thrombectomy was done. His totally paralyzed body was improving and he was discharged within 5 days. Now he does not have significant paralysis and is under preventive care and regular OPD care’’ explained Dr Sandeep.

The best way to prevent a stroke is through lifestyle changes, including eating a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, not smoking tobacco, avoiding alcohol, keeping blood pressure under control, managing diabetes and treating conditions like obstructive sleep apnea.

A recent study says, “Around 82% stroke patients reached a hospital providing tertiary care after six hours of the onset of a stroke. Around 12% patients reached the hospital between three-and-a-half and six hours, and only 5% patients reached within three-and-a-half hours.”

For 36 year old Narinder Ahuja of Patiala it was like getting a new life. In a firing incident he had suffered life threatening injury to the right kidney, liver, right lung, spine, neck and the adjoining areas. It took doctors at Fortis Hospital Mohali a grueling 4 hours for a successful surgery in which three bullets were removed and his life was saved.

Fatally injured in an attempted homicidal shooting in a brawl at Rajpura, Punjab, this patient was given first aid locally. Since his condition was critical and rapidly deteriorating, the doctors there advised him to be taken to a higher and better equipped center. His panic stricken attendants immediately decided to shift him to Fortis hospital, Mohali.

“He was critically injured having been shot a couple of times”, said Dr. Atul S Joshi, Director, Surgery team who received him in the Emergency at Fortis Hospital, Mohali.The patient was having difficulty in breathing since one of the bullets fired at the neck was lodged precariously near the windpipe or the airway. The ensuing swelling was rapidly compromising his breathing and adding to the seriousness of his already critical condition.

To make matters worse, he was hit in the chest as well as the abdomen a couple of times leading to profuse bleeding inside his body. While a catheter was placed inside his urinary bladder when he was being revived in the triage, he showed bleeding coming in the urine as well. Dr. Joshi said, “We were in receipt of a patient who was injured in the neck, chest, abdomen and back, profusely bleeding, with respiratory compromise. The anxiety on the faces of family and friends was a grim indicator of the enormity of damage as to what would have happened at the shoot-out site.”

“The need of the hour was the speed of the treatment, aggressive revival, airway control, blood products and to conjure up a team of all the required experts. The probable success of the effort required to take the patient to the operation theatre as soon as possible.”

The Surgery and the Trauma team at the Hospital were up to the mark and were put into action within minutes in spite of the late evening hours. The initial CT scan done immediately while he was on the way to the operation theatre gave a sense of the grievous and the life threatening injury to the right kidney, liver, right lung, spine, neck and the adjoining areas. He was seen immediately by all the specialties while being shifted to the operation room namely Intensive care, Thoracic surgery, Urology, Vascular surgery, ENT, Spine surgery in addition to the Intestinal surgery experts. Blood products were made available by the blood bank immediately as well.

After a grueling 4 hour successful surgery, where three bullets were removed, the patient was shifted to the ICU on life support systems. His kidney, liver and intestines needed to be intervened. The patient could be taken off the ventilator soon after. Consequent efforts put in, the patient showed rapid improvement and was able to walk back home after having spent 12 days in the hospital.
