21 year old boy from Mumbai undergoes a successful bypass surgery after developing a heart condition due to bad dietary habits

23-May-2018

21st May 2018, Mumbai: Global Hospitals, Parel, Mumbai, a multi super specialty tertiary care hospital, has saved a young life by successfully performing CABG (Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting). Saurabh Maphuskar, a 21 year old boy from Lalbaug, Parel underwent a Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) at Global Hospitals. The surgery was performed by Dr. Hamdulay and the angiography was conducted by Dr. Praveen Kulkarni.

A patient is required to go through CABG when there is a blockage or narrowing of one or more of the coronary arteries. Saurabh was suffering from critical Triple Vessel Disease, which is a case of blockage of 3 major blood vessels of the heart. The patient was experiencing severe chest pain and shortness of breath when he was brought to the hospital. After diagnosis it was found that the level of cholesterol in his blood had shot up, as a result of which, the blood supply to his heart reduced.

With regard to the excessive intake of oily food, Dr. Hamdulay said “The current generation is fond of junk food which is the leading cause of such diseases. The patient had no family history of heart diseases; still, the cholesterol level in his blood was high. Therefore, from the reports we could conclude that his condition was related to his junk food habits. Saurabh will henceforth need to exercise rigorous dietary restrictions to avoid such a problem in future.”

Cardiologist Dr. Praveen Kulkarni quoted, “This case is amongst my youngest patients undergoing CABG. Initial evaluation had revealed unusually high levels of blood cholesterol. In the background of apparently a healthy and active lifestyle, this abnormal cholesterol report explains the premature heart disease. This case should also be highlighted because a lot of naysayers are busy denying the correlation between blood cholesterol and heart diseases.”

The patient, Saurabh Maphuskar commented, “I am thankful to the doctors of Global Hospitals for treating me successfully. I was shocked to discover about the high level of cholesterol and premature heart disease in the reports. I used to have a lot of junk food without really giving a thought to the harmful consequences. I have come to realize this the hard way, and I will control my food habits strictly.”
