Chinese doctors removed from the stomach of a patient giant anomaly
The doctors of one of hospitals in Shanghai saved the life of 22-year-old patient by removing his impressive area of the colon with a length of about 76 inches and weighing in at 13 pounds.
Photos cut on, like a huge slug, quickly spread in the Chinese media. A young man came to the hospital with a stomach so distended that he looked like a pregnant woman. The patient was barely breathing and moaning from the unbearable pain.
The doctors found that the man since childhood suffered from a rare disease — Hirschsprung’s disease. It is characterized by severe constipation. People with this disease defecate rarely. Because of this, their intestines can stretch to gigantic proportions.
Surgeons performed a unique operation, which lasted three hours. She was successful and now the patient can move, to go to the toilet and to eat.
