THE YOUTH RETURNED HOME WITH A PIECE OF THE SKULL INSID …

After falling in the restroom, the Pakistani ex-pat suffered a major cerebral stroke and intestinal haemorrhage. 

After spending seven months in the hospital after undergoing an unusual procedure in which a portion of his skull had to be removed to relieve pressure on the brain and placed in his stomach, a 27-year-old Pakistani who had experienced a major brain stroke has been returned to his native country. 

Nadeem Khan’s life was saved by Dr Chelladurai Hariharan, a specialist in neurosurgery at Aster Hospital in Al Qusais. He said that since the skull couldn’t stay outside for very long, there was no choice but to preserve it inside Nadeem Khan’s abdomen so that it could be reattached to his head when his condition improved. 

Khan, a construction worker, was discovered unconscious in the restroom in November 2021 and sent to Aster Hospital in Al Qusais. At around one in the morning, after Nadeem had used the restroom, we heard a loud noise. When we knocked on the door and received no response, we pried it open and discovered him unconscious on the floor, according to Khan’s friend Inzamam. 

Khan was unable to be awakened, so his friends decided to take him to the hospital as soon as possible. “We were so terrified that we took him down and rushed him in a taxi to the hospital. He suddenly started having seizures on the way, and they lasted for more than 20 minutes. His body stiffened, and his mouth started to foam,” Inzamam recalled. 

Khan was in a severe state of discomfort when they arrived at Aster Hospital. Khan was stabilized at the emergency room by the medical staff, who also put him through a battery of tests. 

His major stroke, which resulted in significant cerebral haemorrhage, was discovered by a CT scan. Complex brain surgery was required to save him.
