Awake brain surgery successfully conducted at Evercare Hospital Chattogram

Staff Reporter:Dr. Md. Anisul Islam Khan, Senior Consultant and Coordinator, Department of Neurosurgery, Evercare Hospital Chattogram, has successfully performed cranioplasty on a 69-year-old stroke patient through Awake Surgery in a team effort.
The patient, Mrs. Zainab Begum (69 years) was admitted to Evercare Hospital Chittagong after suffering a brain stroke. A CT scan of the brain revealed that the patient had an ischemic stroke on the right side of the brain. The stroke put her brain under immense pressure. Her GCS score was at 5/15 and the patient was on the verge of losing consciousness. The severity of the case required experienced physicians of the hospital to make prompt decisions.
Without hesitation, they first treated the patient with decompressive craniectomy, and then based on the follow-up, they decided to perform cranioplasty. However, the patient could not be sedated because of her critical cardiac condition. So, the physicians decided to perform an awake brain surgery on her. The three-and-a-half-hour surgery that ensued was risky, but fortunately it was successful.
Fazle Akbar, General Manager, Evercare Hospital Chittagong Medical Services Department said, "Evercare Hospital has the capability to perform risky surgeries thanks to the facilities of the advanced surgical ICU and the reliable services of the Anesthesia Department." Other senior officials of Evercare Hospital Chittagong were also present in the event.
