Success of our doctors
On August 5, DMCH doctors conducted the biopsy on Muktamoni, who has been afflicted by the disease mainly in her right arm, the condition leading to her arm swelling up like a bee hive. A week after doctors found the existence of a tumour in an artery of her arm, Muktamoni underwent a "successful" operation at Dhaka Medical College and Hospital (DMCH).
Nearly three kilogrammes of tumour were removed from her right hand. Two doctors from National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases joined the 19-member team of DMCH during the two-hour-long operation that started at 8:45am. On completion of the surgery, the 12-year-old girl was taken to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of Burn and Plastic Surgery in Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH).
This is a success of our doctors and we should appreciate this endeavour.
