In a 10 Hour Long Surgery Doctors at Fortis Removed a Large Tumor, Saved 49-year-old Afghan from Fatal Damage

  • Six months ago, 49-year-old tandoori roti seller Zekria Ramozi from Kabul, Afghanistan was diagnosed with Desmoid Tumor.
  • Desmoid tumor, also known as aggressive fibromatosis, can be defined as the growth of benign tumors in the connective tissues, more commonly in the abdomen, arms and legs that also involve and affect other adjacent organs and tissues.
  • As the affect of the tumor aggravated, Ramozi checked with a doctor and underwent a surgery in Kabul which did not turn out successful.
  • That is when he was referred to Fortis Hospital in Shalimar Bagh, New Delhi.
  • The rarity of the disease, the removal of the tumor while maintaining a considerable margin and the grafting of skin post the tumor removal makes the surgery complicated.
  • The facility director at Fortis Hospital, Mahipal Bhanot, said that the affected area in Ramzi's abdomen was 26 cms wide. 
  • Grafting skin in such a large area made it more difficult because of the movement of internal organs and lack of support of the abdomen wall.
  • After a 10 hour long surgery, Ramozi is experiencing steady and fast recovery.
