Iraqi Woman Undergoes 7-hour Surgery for Rare Tumor at Fortis Hospital

Doctors at Fortis Hospital, Vasant Kunj gave a new lease of life to a 27-year-old Iraqi woman by removing a “rare recurrent tumor” from the lower jawbone, thereby allowing her to eat properly after three years.

 

Rasha Mohammad was initially treated in her home country for the tumor. It was resected and a reconstruction plate was placed to bridge the gap in the lower jaw. However, this recurrent tumor – ameloblastoma, relapsed and the lower jaw got maligned due to which it was difficult to bite, chew and eat food.

The relapsed tumor also resulted in physical disfigurement and the right side of the face was depressed.

 

“Rasha Mohammad was taken for surgery where the tumor was removed along with the jawbone and chin. Bone from the right illiac crest was removed, shaped and auto-transplanted to form the right jaw and chin. The blood supply to the new jaw was augmented by bringing in sternocleidomastoid muscle flap to cover the bone," said Dr. Mandeep S Malhotra, Head- Breast, Head & Neck Oncology Surgery, Fortis Hospital Vasant Kunj.

 

“The entire surgery took seven hours. We have been able to achieve more than expected. The tumor has been removed and the patient’s face looks normal. Additionally, she can bite properly and ear normal food,” added Dr. Malhotra.
