“Later, our senior doctor Karuna Das successfully resuscitated and intubated her after a technically challenging manoeuvre. It was densely adherent and had a large fluid mass making the girl’s daily life very difficult. She had to undergo a life-saving emergency operation,” the television news channel quoted Kakati as saying.

Though the surgery was not scheduled for Wednesday, the emergency operation was conducted after the girl complained of breathing problems in the morning and she was operated with ventilator support, he said.

The AMCH’s emergency gynaecology and anaesthesia team, led by Professor R Sonowal along with his colleagues Dr Pranati Dutta and Dr Aiswarya Lekshmi conducted the four-hour long very critical surgery, Kakati said.

“We are happy to share that our doctors successfully removed the ovarian mass of around 30 kg from the girl after the very challenging surgery. During the operation, she was given three units of blood,” the AMCH principal said.

The patient’s vitals are stable after extubation and she has been kept under observation in the High Dependence Unit (HDU), he added.
