99% of the doctors would refuse a case like this but Dr Sanjay Gogoi and his team took up the challenge of saving this life. A 10 year old kid with V.P shunt and a past history of Meningo- myelocele with hydrocephalus was operated in the first week of April at FMRI. Augmentation Cystoplasty surgery was performed and it was a success. The risk involved in the surgery was the danger of infection spreading to the brain due to the shunt. The patient is healthy and recovered well and was discharged on the 26th.
