印度82岁老人更换心脏瓣膜,高龄不是问题

 Old age not an issue for replacing heart valve, Chennai doctors prove

钦奈医生证明,对于心脏瓣膜更换手术而言,高龄不是问题

CHENNAI: When 82-year-old retired Army doctor P Sathyapn was brought to the operation theatre on April 17 for a heart valve replacement, doctors promised him that if everything went as per plan they would take him to a polling booth the following day.

钦奈:4月17日,82岁的退役陆军医生PSathyapn被送往手术室接受心脏瓣膜更换手术,医生们向他保证,如果一切按计划进行,他们将在第二天带他去投票站。

Today, nearly a week after casting his ve, Dr Sathyapn proudly displayed his inked left index finger to the flashing media cameras.

今天,在投票近一周后,Sathyapn自豪地向媒体展示了他那带有墨迹的左手食指

“Doctors have not just added years to my life, they have added life to my years. I have been able to do most of my work on my own. I even exercised my by casting my ve a day after surgery,” he said.

Sathyapn称:“医生不仅延长了我的生命,还给我的生命增添了活力。我已经基本能生活自理。甚至在手术后的第一天,我就行使了自己的权利,投下了自己的一票。”

Dr Sathyapn was diagnosed with narrowing of aortic valve after the surgical valve he had been given a decade ago failed.

在10年前接受的主动脉瓣手术失败后,Sathyapn被诊断出主动脉瓣狭窄。

“When I was given the valve (in another hospital here), surgeons told me that the life of the valve was just 10 years. When I asked them what they would do if I lived longer, they said it could be replaced. But now, when I went to the same hospital, surgeons refused to operate on me citing my age and risk factors. I was asked to slow down and go on medication. I wasn’t willing to do that,” he said.

Sathyapn称:“当我在另一家医院植入这种瓣膜时,外科医生告诉我,这种瓣膜只能维持10年。我问他们,如果我活过了这10年,他们要怎么做,他们说可以再换。但现在,当我去这家医院时,外科医生以我的年龄和危险因素为由拒绝给我做手术。我被要求继续服药。但我不愿意那样做。”

However, Sathyapn approached cardiologists in Apollo Hospitals. They replaced the ailing valve without an open surgery.

然而,Sathyapn找到了阿波罗医院的心脏病专家。他们没有做开腹手术就替换了有病的瓣膜。

The doctors inserted the new valve mounted on a thin, fleble tube through an artery on the thigh and delivered to the heart under local anesthesia.

医生们将新瓣膜安装在一根细而柔韧的管子上,在局部麻醉下,管子穿过大腿上的动脉,将瓣膜送到心脏。

“The patient had narrowed blood vessel. So, we had to dilate it to create space. The valve was then moved across this and placed safely, inside the old degenerated surgical valve in less than 20 minutes,” said interventional cardiologist Dr Sai Satish.

介入心脏病学家Sai Satish博士称:“病人的血管已经变窄了。所以,我们必须把它撑大,在不到20分钟的时间内把瓣膜送到心脏,安全放置在旧的退化手术瓣膜内。”

The procedure, the team admits, isn’t rare anymore. “But we decided to talk about it only to tell people that patients undergoing the procedure can return home without complications a day after the surgery,” Dr Satish said.

Sai Satish博士称:“我们团队承认,这种手术已经不再罕见。我们在这里谈论此事,是为了告诉人们,接受手术的病人可以在术后一天返回家中,不会出现并发症。”

As promised, Dr Satish drove Dr Sathyapn to the polling booth a day after the surgery.

正如所承诺的,术后第二天Sai Satish博士开车送Sathyapn去了投票站。

也就是说,你能活多久和你有多少钱是息息相关的。顺便问一下,他的票是投给了掏钱给他做手术的那个人吗?
