Arrow removed without anaesthesia in Malkangiri
Malkangiri: In a rare surgery, doctors of a government hospital have removed an iron arrow pierced through the chest of a Bonda tribal without anaesthesia, doctors said on Friday.
The surgery had to be conducted on Soma Chalan, hit by the arrow from his back at Mudulipada three days ago, as soon as he was brought at the Malkangiri district hospital.
As the hospital had no anaesthesia at that time, his critical condition did not permit any referral to the nearest MKCG Medicl College Hospital at Berhampur, about 500 km from here, surgeon Sapan Kumar Dhinda said.
"He would have died on way to Berhampur because his condition was very critical. I took a risk and conducted the very difficult operation", Dhinda said.
Chief District Medical Officer, Malkangiri, Sasibhushan Panda said "It was one of the rare surgeries conducted under difficult circumstances. Dhinda took it as a challenge and saved his life".
