Udaipur: Geetanjali Medical College & Hospital’s Neuro Vascular Interventional Radiologist Dr. SeetaramBarath successfully saved 65 years old suffering from internal bleeding in small intestine by performing BRTO; a life saving procedure. The team of doctors includes Gastroenterologist Dr. Pankaj Gupta, Anesthetist Dr. Rajendra, ICU Doctors Dr. Shubhkaran Sharma & Dr. Javed and nursing staff. Udaipur resident, MeenaSaxena, age of 65 years, is a patient with an old history of suffering from liver cirrhosis since 2012. The persistent symptoms of anxiety, black motion, vomiting, low blood pressure, internal bleeding in frequent intervals compelled the relatives to rush to hospital. On consultation to Gastroenterologist Dr. Pankaj Gupta, the investigation of endoscopy were performed which was normal but the internal bleeding was persisting. Since then the patient was shifted to ICU & investigation of Colonoscopy were performed, where it showed bleeding in large intestine, which was coming from small intestine. To confirm the same, CT Scan of small intestine was done which presented a bunch of veins, ectopic varices formerly called as, were bleeding. Since these varices can’t be treated with endoscopic procedures, so the patient was then referred to Neuro Vascular Interventional Radiologist Dr. SeetaramBarath. Dr. Barath then chose Balloon Retrograde Transvenous Obliteration of Varices, (BRTO) procedure to treat the patient.
“The patient was shifted to cath lab where through the veins of neck a balloon catheter was inserted near the ectopic varices and was blocked to stop bleeding. Internal bleeding may lead to life threatening if not timely intervene by super specialty doctor. The patient was then moved to ICU where dedicated & compassionate care of doctors made the patient recover well. If the patient would not have been treated by this procedure then she may had to opt for an open surgery which could be complicated,” Dr. Barath.
