Bhubaneswar, Feb 25:
A final year degree student of Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences (KISS) in Odisha capital got a new lease of life after undergoing a successful rare heart surgery last Tuesday.
Narasinghadev Kuanr underwent a rare heart surgery in KIMS, Pradyumna Bal Memorial Hospital on February 23 as he suffered a heart attack. After primary investigation, it was found that, there was a complete blockage in his right coronary artery, which needed an angioplasty. Subsequently angioplasty was done successfully by Dr. Panchanan Sahoo, Head of the Department, Cardiology, KIMS and his team.
For this they used a special thrombus suction catheter to clear the blockage and an imported stent was placed. After angioplasty, the condition of Narasinghdev is stable now.
It is a rare case as this kind of blockage is usually not seen in persons below 25 years. In fact the total expenditure of this heart operation is about four lakhs and all the cost has been borne by KISS. Narasingh’s father Gopal thanked KISS, doctors of KIMS and Dr. Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KIIT & KISS for getting a new life of his son.
“It is almost impossible on our part to bear such a huge amount towards the treatment of my son, as I maintain my family as a daily labourer. Narasingh got all the treatment free of cost as he is studying in KISS,” Gopal Kuanr said.
