Srinagar, Aug 03: A rarest of rare surgical case involving “testis inside hernial sac” was operated at Sub District Hospital, Pattan.

The case was successfully operated at SDH Pattan, District Baramulla by the General Surgery unit of the hospital.
A 60 year old male who reported with scrotal swelling was operated and during exploration testis along with spermatic cord was found inside hernial sac in the scrotum.The operative team under the logistic support of BMO Pattan included Dr Imtiaz Wani (Surgeon),Dr Mohd Amin(Consultant Anaesthesia), Younis, Muddasir, Tanveer, Showket , Gulzar and G Parray (Theatre Staff). The patient is doing post operatively well and was discharged on Wednesday.
Very few such cases have been reported in literature across the world till date and operating such a unique case has brought much accolades to the Directorate of Health Services, Kashmir (DHSK).
Director Health Services, Kashmir Dr Saleem-ur-Rehman has congratulated CMO Baramulla Dr Bashir Chalkoo, BMO Pattan Dr Manzoor Hakim and the operative team for achieving the feat. (KNS)
