Doctors in Mumbai remove biggest brain tumour weighing 1.9 kg

Mumbai Doctors Removed World's largest brain tumour, weighing nearly 2kgs

According to a report by The Hindu, a six-hour surgery was performed on Santlal Pal, 31, by doctors at the Nair Hospital, Mumbai, on February 14.

Doctors said Mr Pal had lost his vision because of the tumour but hoped he would regain it as he continued to recover from the operation.

"It was an extremely daunting and complex surgery", said Nadkarni, head of neurosurgery at Mumbai's BYL Nair hospital.

"The tumour weighed around 1.873 kgs which is the largest weight of a brain tumour to be excised successfully in the world".

She believes her mother's ex-husband, Robert Hollie, is the person barricaded in the home in the 2000 block of Avondale Ct. He said Hollie opened fire on officers who had set a perimeter around his Toulminville residence, striking Billa.

Pal was operated upon for six hours to remove the 1.87-kg tumour.

The doctor explained that given the tumor's growth pattern, all they had to do in order to remove it was to cut the scalp area around it and to use the brain tumor's protruding point to cut its stem that compressed the brain. "Before the surgery, he had minimal vision, which may improve now", Dr Nadkarni said.

He had been to three hospitals in Uttar Pradesh before the procedure in Mumbai but the doctors in those places had termed the tumor untreatable.

Mr Pal, a shopkeeper from the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, had watched the tumour grow for three years.

According to Nadkarni, 90 percent of the tumor was located between Pal's skull and his scalp; just 10 percent of the tumor grew within the skull.

The tumour had in the brain on both sides of the midline through the skull. But as these images show they can also reveal some of the most gruesome and freakish results.

He needed a transfusion of 11 units of blood, and also had to spend three days on life support after the surgery, but is now thankfully on the mend. Doctors said he should gradually regain his sight and health.

"Such tumours are rare and pose quite a challenge due to blood loss". There was a heavy blood loss and this required great team skill in perioperative monitoring for a successful result. "He feels relieved of 'a large burden on his head". "We could not spend a lot", his wife Manju said.
