Sahyadri Hospital’s Life-Saving Treatment for Pulmonary Embolism Rescues the Family’s Sole Earner

Pune, March 14, 2023: Sahyadri Hospital Hadapsar has achieved a remarkable medical feat by successfully treating Tukaram Pingale (name changed), a 33-year-old labourer from Hadapsar, Pune, who serves as the sole breadwinner for his family.

Admitted to the hospital on 21st January, 2024 Tukaram underwent a percutaneous thrombectomy for pulmonary embolism, a life-saving procedure that proved essential in his remarkable recovery. His case stands out due to the severity of his condition and the pioneering treatment plan implemented by the compassionate team at Sahyadri Hospital Hadapsar, underscoring the hospital’s unwavering commitment to serving the community.

“Addressing pulmonary embolism, a life-threatening condition, demands swift and precise interventions, particularly in cases as critical as Tukaram’s, where the stakes extend beyond his health to the well-being of his entire family,” expressed Dr. Kaurabhi Zade, Interventional Radiologist at Sahyadri Hospitals, Pune. “The employment of minimally invasive peroneus thrombectomy under local anaesthesia facilitated the swift extraction of the clot, ensuring a quicker recovery with minimal risks. Tukaram’s case highlights the essential role of advanced, less invasive treatment options in managing severe pulmonary embolisms, providing a lifeline for patients in critical conditions. Particularly in cases where we cannot give thrombolytic medicine or when after giving thrombolytic therapy patient won’t show any improvement, such treatment plans are life-saving.”

“The successful resolution of Tukaram’s pulmonary embolism is a testament to the critical importance of timely, innovative medical interventions and the profound impact of collaborative team efforts within healthcare settings,” remarked Dr. Kapil Borawake, the leader of the Pulmonary Embolism Response Team (PERT) at Sahyadri Hospitals, Pune. “The presence of a dedicated PERT team, ready 24/7 at our hospital, was instrumental in delivering immediate, comprehensive care. This approach not only saved patient’s life but also showcases our commitment to setting new standards in the treatment of pulmonary embolisms, ensuring that patients like him have access to the best possible outcomes.”

Within 1-2 days post-surgery, Tukaram’s remarkable progress not only underscores the effectiveness of the innovative treatment but also emphasizes the dedication of the medical team at Sahyadri Hospital. This triumphant narrative of resilience and healing serves as a testament to Sahyadri Hospital’s commitment to delivering advanced and impactful medical care to individuals from all walks of life, ensuring that no one is left behind in their time of need.
