City docs save patient from Nigeria | Hyderabad News


Hyderabad: A 25-year-old youth, Maddem Sasikanth Reddy, who had nearly lost his battle with drug-resistant malaria with encephalopathy recovered after nearly two months of hospitalization in Hyderabad. The production manager, who works at a food manufacturing company in Lagos, Nigeria was airlifted to Hyderabad from Nigeria in an extremely dangerous condition. Reddy hails from Kadapa in AP.
“A tracheal rupture, during treatment at a local hospital in Nigeria, had deteriorated the patient’s condition, leaving him with slim chances of recovery. The patient was flown on advanced mechanical ventilator support, with the journey spanning over 15 hours. Evaluation revealed multiple complications including severe drug-resistant brain malaria along with brain complication, kidney failure, post-cardiac arrest, sepsis and a tracheal rupture,” said cardiothoracic surgeons Dr Dasari Prasada Rao and Dr Ravi Raju CH who operated on him along with a team from Apollo Spectra Hospital.
After 47 days of ICU care, the patient was put on hemodialysis till his kidneys recovered and then a tracheal repair surgery was carried out. “Post repair, the patient was kept on lung ventilation and was gradually weaned off from the ventilator. He has fully recovered and can now lead a normal life,” added the doctors.
