Pimpri, 18 January 2023: In a groundbreaking medical achievement, DPU Super Specialty Hospital in Pimpri, Pune, has recently accomplished the intricate removal of a rare 22cm water-filled abdominal cyst, rescuing the life of a 32-year-old female. The patient, who had been enduring the effects of a congenital tumor called lymphangioma for nearly five years, was admitted on 21st November 2023.
Headed by Dr. Samir Gupta, the Head of Department for Surgical Oncology, and assisted by Dr. Prashant Chandra, Consultant Onco Surgeon, the medical team diagnosed the patient and uncovered the presence of the tumor since birth. The tumor, gradually expanding over the years, caused severe pain and discomfort in the last five years.
The surgery, lasting four hours, was a meticulous process due to the tumor’s extraordinary size of 22x11x11 centimeters. The cyst, surrounded by vital abdominal organs such as the kidney, intestine, and liver, required careful separation for a safe extraction. The success of the surgery resulted in the patient’s complete recovery, allowing her to be discharged just five days after the procedure on 28th November 2023.
Dr. P.D. Patil, the Chancellor of Dr. D.Y Patil Vidyapeeth, expressed his commitment to enhancing healthcare standards, emphasizing patient-centric care and cutting-edge technology at the hospital.
