Evercare Chattogram’s Triumph Over Critical Procedure
Peoples Time Desk
Renowned for its world class healthcare services, Evercare Hospital Chattogram has recently completed the successful treatment of aortic aneurysm through thoracic endovascular aortic repair, a rare and complex method of treatment. The method has not been used anywhere else in the country except in Dhaka. The hospital authorities organized a press conference today where various aspects of the disease and treatment were discussed.
Thoracic Endovascular Aortic Repair is a minimally invasive procedure to repair the major blood vessel in the body called the aorta. Evercare Hospital Chattogram successfully carried out this treatment through the efforts of an illustrious team led by Dr. Mohammad Fazle Maruf, Senior Consultant, Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery and Dr. Asish Dey, Senior Consultant Cardiology with support from anesthesia team.
Dr. Mohammad Fazle Maruf, Senior Consultant, Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, Evercare Hospital Chattogram, said, “It is basically a disease without symptoms. As a result, it is riskier than any common disease. However, the patient may feel pain in the abdomen and chest and the blood pressure may rise. The disease is detected by CT scan of the abdomen, USG or X-ray and it is very important to get treatment after diagnosis. The disease is usually treated with surgical procedures. However, at present, the disease is treated in a special and modern way like thoracic endovascular aortic repair, which is the method we have used.” He added, “We, at Evercare Hospital Chattogram are immensely proud of successfully carrying out this method that has not been used anywhere else in the country other than the capital. This is the fourth such procedure carried out successfully in Bangladesh”
Dr. Asish Dey, Senior Consultant, Cardiology at Evercare Hospital Chattogram said, “I am very happy and proud of the unimaginable success of Evercare Hospital Chattogram in this rare and critical treatment process of aortic aneurysms.” He added, “If any part of the aorta of our body is abnormally large, it is called aortic aneurysm. Generally, people who suffer from diabetes or high blood pressure are more at risk with this disease. However, it can also be congenital. Aortic aneurysm is not a disease to be neglected at all and if diagnosed, proper treatment is required. This is because 32 to 68 percent of patients run the risk of rupture in the aneurysm rupture which may prove to be fatal. So, I urge everyone to learn more about this disease and create awareness about it as well.”
