SAHYADRI HOSPITALS ‘LIVER TEAM’ SAVES THE LIFE OF A 29YR OLD MAN

Mr. Vivek Badke a 29 year old, met with a Road Traffic Accident on 23-01-2016 at Dhule. He was immediately shifted to a local hospital for primary assessment and found to have liver injury. Hence he was shifted to Nashik for further management.

There he was advised regarding the possibility of emergency surgery and risk to life due to bleeding. Unfortunately due to unavailability of Liver surgeon there he was referred to Sahyadri Specialty Hospital (SSH), Pune for specialist care.

At SSH there is a dedicated “Liver Team” for the management of patients with any kind of liver problem. Here he was appropriately investigated and was found to have significant liver injury however, without active bleeding. Hence, keeping in line with standard protocols for management of liver trauma the team decided to manage him non-surgically.

He was kept under close observation and continuous monitoring. There were close moments however, he improved slowly and was sent home in a few days in a stable condition.
