Ten Cases Of Intestinal Gangrene Reported In Hyderabad:- At least ten cases of a rare intestinal gangrene are reported in Hyderabad in the two major hospitals: Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) and Osmania General Hospital (OGH). All these people have suffered and recovered with coronavirus recently and ten cases are reported in a gap of a week in the capital of Telangana. The doctors said that the cases are rising and most of them are requiring an intestine transplant to survive. In a surprise, some of the patients have even taken a dose of the coronavirus vaccine. As per June 2021, only four cases are reported in Hyderabad. Four of the recently reported patients are on ventilator support.
Acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) occurs due to the blockage of arteries or veins which may lead to gangrene in the intestines. Among the ten new reported cases, three of them are completely fit with no health issues from the past. Two of them also received a single dose of the coronavirus vaccine. The recent cases also suggest that they also happen because of the tendency to form clots in the human body. Dr C Madhusudan, head of the surgical gastroenterology, OGH said that four cases had acute gangrene and the entire intestine had to be removed. The doctors asked the people to be extra cautious and take special care during the season. Extreme stomach ache, nausea, vomiting, constipation and abdominal digestion are the symptoms of Intestinal gangrene.
