15th September 2018, Chennai: The aorta is the largest blood vessel in the body and is the blood vessel that carries oxygen-rich blood away from the heart to all parts of the body. The commonest diseases of the aorta requiring invasive treatment include Aortic Aneurysm which is an abnormal swelling of the wall of the aorta or Aortic Dissection which is a tear in the wall of the aorta. Both these conditions can be life threatening and replacement of the diseased aorta with a synthetic graft is the best treatment. When left untreated, such aneurysms can rupture and majority of patients die in 3 to 4 minutes making it very unlikely for quick treatment to be delivered in that short period.
Mr S K who hails from Vijayawada had an aortic repair done with stent grafts in 2016 for a life threatening condition. Over the last few weeks, he became increasingly unwell and his family including his son and wife were very concerned and took him to various hospitals at Vijaywada. He was diagnosed of severe renal failure and blood loss due to a leaking aortic aneurysm. Treatment for aortic diseases is only offered by a few centres in the country. Therefore the patient obtained opinions from various leading surgeons in Vijaywada, Bangalore and Chennai. All concluded that no treatment can be offered for Mr S K's critical condition and that fatality was unavoidable.
In despair, the family contacted Dr A B Gopalamurugan, senior interventional cardiologist and Chief of Aortic Interventions at Kauvery Hospital's newly-opened 24-hour Aortic Department. Dr Gopalamurugan is renowned for taking on very high risk patients for heart and aortic diseases and is a pioneer in various cutting edge treatments in the country. The 24-hour Aortic Department at Kauvery headed by Dr Gopalamurugan consists of various super-specialists including Cardiovascular Surgery headed by Dr Raguram, Vascular Surgery headed by the pioneer Prof Sekar, Renal Medicine headed by Dr Balasubramanian and Cardiac Radiology by Dr Zeeshan. Mr S K was urgently transferred to Chennai to Kauvery Hospital for immediate treatment.
