NELLORE, India, Jan. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — A Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) was performed on a 47-year-old person whose heart is on the right side of the chest (Dextrocardia) at Medicover Hospital in Nellore successfully. The doctors at Medicover Hospitals, Nellore, have successfully performed complex and rare heart operations, demonstrating how our country’s healthcare infrastructure is far superior and more advanced than ever.
Medicover Hospitals has earned global recognition and a place on the list of hospitals that have successfully completed surgery for a rare disease called Dextrocardia with Situs Inversus, which affects one in every 10 thousand people. This type of surgery has been performed 37 times worldwide, with this being, the 38th at Medicover Hospitals and the 5th in India. It is remarkable that Medicover Hospital is ranked 14th in the world for off-pump beating heart surgeries.
This case is about 47-year-old Tirupathi Reddy from Nellore, who visited Medicover Hospital in Nellore with chest pain. On examination, he was diagnosed with a rare disease called Dextrocardia with Situs Inversus, a condition in which the heart is present on the right side. He also had heart related problems in the past and had a cardiac angioplasty 8 years ago.
Mr. Tirupathi Reddy case was taken up by Dr. Trilok, a cardiothoracic surgeon at Medicover hospitals who performed coronary angiography confirming that a shunt is blocked and decided to do a bypass procedure. Dr. Trilok and his medical team successfully completed the operation successfully despite the fact that it had to be done in a complicated, off-pump beating heart bypass way. The patient recovered completely after 5 days of surgery and was discharged from the hospital.
Maheswara Reddy, Vice President of Medicover Hospitals, and Dr. Ganesh, Center Head, attended a press conference on Monday to explain the patient’s condition and how the surgery had received global recognition. Situs Inversus is a condition in which the organs that should be on the right side are on the left side, and organs that should be on the left side are on the right side. He said that Tirupathi Reddy’s heart is on the right side in this case. It is said that heart diseases rarely occur in such people, and even if they do, only a few people need surgery.
Dr. Trilok explained that his team successfully performed bypass surgery on the patient using the off-pump beating method and said, “It is because of the availability of an experienced medical team and staff, along with modern technology, that we were able to perform such unusual treatments successfully at Medicover Hospital.”
Patient Tirupathi Reddy thanked Dr. Trilok and his medical team for successfully operating on him and giving him back his normal life.
