A Bullet Stuck Near 29-year-old's Brain was Successfully Extracted at Fortis Memorial Research Institute

  • 20-year-old Mehdhar Naseer got injured by a bullet in January 2015 when Houthi rebels broke into his house in Yemen and opened fire. 
  • After entering his neck the bullet got stuck beneath the first cervical vertebra and lay there between the spinal cord and the vertebral artery.
  • He complained of a neck pain without any knowledge of the bullet inside him.
  • According to Dr. Sandeep Vaishya, executive director of neurosurgery at Fortis Memorial Research Institute, Gurgaon, the patient would have died or suffered from paralysis in four of his limbs if the bullet damaged his spinal cord or the vertebra artery.
  • None of the doctors at Jordan, Sudan, Oman wanted to operate Naseer fearing he may die or will be paralyzed for life.
  • The bullet was successfully removed at Fortis Memorial Research Institute and he is gradually recovering now.
