Sudhir went to Wockardt Hospital, where a dedicated team of doctors resolved to help him. After through diagnosis, they unravel the mystery behind Sudhir’s condition and started preparations to restore Sudhir’s mobility.
Upon meeting Sudhir and conducting a comprehensive assessment, Dr. Goyal successfully identified Sudhir’s condition as vascular claudication, shedding light on the vascular blockages impeding blood flow to his legs.
Yet, the challenge lay in pinpointing the precise location of the blockage, as indicated by inconclusive Doppler reports. Dr. Goyal collaborated with Interventional Radiologists Dr. Ashank Bansal and Dr. Abhijeet Soni and opted for a Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA), an intricate procedure that would provide a clearer picture of Sudhir’s condition.
The DSA uncovered a severe 90% stenosis—a blockage in the aorta, the crucial vessel originating from the heart. Although the proposed treatment of angioplasty and stenting carried a slight risk of aorta rupture. With Sudhir’s informed consent, Dr. Ashank Bansal and Dr. Abhijeet Soni, Interventional Radiologists, performed the delicate procedure using the latest minimally invasive techniques.
Within mere hours of the intervention, Sudhir felt a newfound sense of liberation as he walked painlessly for the first time in years. Overwhelmed with gratitude and emotion, tears welled up in Sudhir’s eyes as he thanked the doctors at Wockardt Hospital.
