Doctors at Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital save life of 15 year old Gyaneshwar
Undertake rare cardiac surgery for the first time in Pune
19th January, Pune: 15 year old Gyaneshwar was suffering from Myasthenia Gravis, a neuromuscular disease that leads to muscle weakness and fatigue. On admission to the hospital he was also diagnosed with Kearns Sayre Syndrome; an extremely rare disease. The prevalence of this syndrome is approximately 1-3 in a 100,000 people. It is a rare neuromuscular disorder, which leads to heart diseases such as heart block, progressive paralysis of eye muscles and causes abnormal accumulation of colored material on the nerve rich membrane lining the eyes leading to chronic inflammation, progressive degeneration and wearing of certain eye structures. This disease also leads to muscle weakness, short stature, hearing loss and other problems related to movements as it affects part of the brain.
“On thorough examination it was diagnosed that in addition to Myasthenia Gravis, young Gyaneshwar also had a genetic disorder-Kearns Sayre Syndrome, where a regular pacemaker would not be effective in his case. Hence we decided to go ahead with MRI compatible dual chamber pacemaker implantation. This was indeed a complex surgery and the first in Pune, where we have implanted this kind of a pacemaker in 15 years old”, says Dr. Rajesh Badani, Senior Consultant Cardiology and Electrophysiology, Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital.
Our young boy use to feel weak all the time and complain of giddiness. We are very happy and thankful to Aditya Birla Hospital for not only saving his life but also diagnosing the right problem and treating him appropriately”, shared Gyaneshwar’s father.
“We are glad that our advance facilities and trained team of doctors could save the life of young Gyaneshwar. It is crucial to correctly diagnosis the disease or patients end up spending money and do not get proper treatment. We strive to provide the highest level of patient care through continuous innovation and technology enhancements. Thereby, ensuring that our patients receive best quality services at affordable prices”, said Ms. Rekha Dubey, CEO Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital.
