Indian doctors removed a 1.8 kilogram brain tumor of a man who was probably the largest in the world – the BBC’s news portal reported on Thursday.
The seven-hour surgery was carried out at Nair Hospital in Mumbai on February 14, but they did not say until they were successful in the operation.
Trimurti Nadkarni, head of the neurosurgeon, says the 31-year-old man is beyond the risk of life, now working on regenerating the body.
“The tumor was bigger than the head of a patient. We checked the medical literature, but we could not find one more tumor,” he added.
The Szantlal Pal merchant living in Uttar Pradesh lived with the tumor for three years. Your doctor told the BBC that he had lost sight of the tumor, but he was hoping he would regain the way the brain regenerates.
His wife told him that Uttar Prades had told her husband in three hospitals that the tumor could not be operated.
According to Nadkarni, the severity of the case is indicated by the use of 11 units of blood during surgery, after which the patient was ventilated for several days.
