Delhi doctors use complex surgery to successfully treat teen's

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Doctors at central government's have cured a teenager with severe ligament avulsion fracture through mere stitches instead of using any implant like screws or endo button, a treatment procedure adopted only in countries like and the US.

The procedure -- Knee arthroscopy -- allows doctors to view the knee joint without making a large cut through the skin and other soft tissues by inserting a small camera, called an arthroscope, to permit binocular vision.



The camera displays pictures on a video monitor and the surgeon uses these images to guide miniature surgical instruments.

The procedure has been adopted by a few nations such as and the US, according to Balvinder Singh, an Assistant Professor of Orthopaedics at Safdarjung Hospital, who along with his team performed the surgery.

"The patient, an 18-year-old youth had suffered a road accident and was diagnosed to have a posterior cruciate ligament avulsion fracture of knee due to which he was not able to walk properly and was on bed rest for three weeks.

"He came to us as a last resort after being referred from other hospitals due to complexity of the required surgery," Singh said.

"We performed an Arthroscopic suture bridging technique which does not require any implant like screws or endo button hence bringing down the cost by 70-80 per cent," he added.
