Sanjay Bahe from Balaghat in central India survived having an iron rod pierced from right temporal region to the left frontal region of his brain
The construction worker, 21, miraculously survived an iron rod piercing through his entire head after he fell down a well while carrying out repair work in Balaghat, in central India
After an hour and a half of surgery, the rod was removed safely with hardly any injury to the surrounding area
In 90 minute neurosurgeons removed the rod with minimal bleeding or further injury
The patient’s main blood channels to the brain was preserved by just millimetres, said Dr Giri.
He said: ‘Giving anaesthesia to the patient in such cases is difficult. We did right by positioning the intubation to maintain vital channels in the brain during the operation.’
‘I performed the surgery with all caution so that damage to the surrounding structures shouldn’t happen.’
The doctor added: ‘One complication that can take place in such cases is causing meningitis to the patient.
‘Fortunately, he is doing fine after the surgery, and we are also taking care to prevent meningitis.’
