Dr Bedi’s invention used in Canadian patient to prevent Brain Stroke

Mr Jones (name changed) – a 65 year old eminent lawyer from Toronto  – was suffering from a recurrent brain stroke . He was investigated in Canada and advised a life saving surgery Carotid End Arterectomy (CEA) but given a long date.

His Canadian friend who had undergone bypass surgery from Dr Bedi earlier in Escorts Delhi referred him to India .  After examination and investigation Dr Harinder Singh Bedi – Director of Cardio Vascular Sciences at Park Hospital Mohali – realised that Mr Jones was experiencing TIA (transient ischemic attacks) which are quite often the precursor of a major brain stroke. Dr Bedi has treated such cases at the St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney and in the Fortis Heart Mohali (where he was the first cardiac surgeon of the whole group) . He realised that Mr Jones could have a debilitating and potentially fatal stroke at any time. There was a severe block in the artery going to the brain from where multiple clots were shooting up.

Dr Bedi and team took up the very challenging surgery of repairing the block. The surgery is called Carotid End Arterectomy (CEA) . The anesthesia for this critical case was given by Dr Hiteshi who is one of the few trained Cardiac Anesthetists of the Tri City . Dr Shruti was the Consultant Cardiac surgeon with Dr Bedi .The brain artery was exposed carefully, the block removed and the artery repaired with a patch. During the surgery there is a risk of stroke as the artery has to be clamped to repair it.

This risk was reduced by using an innovative device – “Bedi Cooling Turban” – which has been invented by Dr Bedi and validated by National and International experts. The tubes of the invention are connected to a heart lung machine and chilled water at 4 degrees C is circulated.   This cools the brain and prevents damage

Mr Jones made a complete recovery and is on his way back to Canada .

Dr Bedi stressed that patients at risk of stroke can now safely undergo this life saving surgery with excellent results.
