30-year-old met with an accident while riding a two-wheeler near Puducherry, causing severe head injury. He was brought to MGM Healthcare in an unconscious state. Code Trauma was initiated and a Pan CT was done, which identified serious brain injury. Patient was rushed into the Operation Theatre where the haemorrhage in the brain was removed and the swollen brain was decompressed by removing a large segment of the skull bone (craniectomy). One week in the Neuro ICU under the Neuro Critical Care team saw him slowly recover and regain consciousness. Aggressive neuro rehabilitation got him back to his feet. He was discharged and three months post the injury, he is near normal.


Patient suffered a sudden severe headache and fell unconscious. She was rushed to a local hospital in a small town in South Andhra Pradesh, where she was diagnosed to have a bleeding in the brain. Recognising the seriousness of the event, she was immediately shifted by ambulance to MGM Healthcare. On arrival, a CT scan of the brain and a CT angiogram were done, and reports showed swelling in one of the blood vessels (aneurysm) at the base of the brain which had ruptured. Immediate Microsurgical Clipping was performed. Recovering in the Neuro ICU, she gradually improved. Three months since, she is completely normal and free of all problems.
