September 22, 2022 | BHATT SALMAN

In a major development in the health field in Kashmir, doctors at Government Medical College Srinagar treated an old age patient who was diagnosed with EUS-guided biliary drainage (choledocho-duodenostomy).
The surgery was performed by the Department of Gastroenterology and Herpetology, Government Medical College, Srinagar.
A senior doctor said that a 72 years old patient was admitted to the Medical Gastroenterology ward at Superspecialty Hospital Srinagar with obstructive jaundice. On evaluation, the patient was found to have periampullary growth with liver metastases. ERCP was tried for palliative drainage but was not possible as the growth had occupied whole the lumen of duodenum.
“EUS guided biliary drainage (choledocho-duodenostomy) which is first time done in Kashmir under the eminent leadership of Prof. Dr. Showkat Ahmad Kadla and Anaesthesia team under leadership of Prof. Dr. Rukhsana in presence of Medical Superintendent Dr. Jahangir Bakhshi”, he added.
The patient is doing well and is planned to be discharged tomorrow. The procedure is the first of its kind in the valley. Previously these patients had to go to New Delhi for the same which would cost them 2-3 lakh rupees. However, here the cost was zero, as the stent was placed under a golden card scheme and the accessories were donated by the doctors of Medical Gastroenterology Superspecialty Srinagar, a senior doctor said.
