Achieving a great feat, doctors at Indraprastha Apollo Hospital conducted a 3.5-hour operation on a 52-year-old woman and successfully removed a large ovarian tumour weighing 50 kg.

The woman had been gaining weight for the last few months and weighed a total of 106 kgs and she had recently started experiencing difficulty in breathing, acute pain in her lower abdomen, and consequently difficulty in walking and sleeping, the hospital said in a statement.

It said that upon investigation at the Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, it was revealed that the woman had a giant, progressively expanding tumour in her ovary and this was putting pressure on her intestine causing acute stomachache and inability to digest food, and her haemoglobin had dropped to 6 causing severe anaemia.

A team of surgeons led by Dr Arun Prasad, Senior Consultant, Surgical Gastroenterology and Bariatric Surgery at Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, conducted a three-and-a-half-hour long surgery for extraction of the 50 kg tumour.

"As a first-ever case of a 50 kg tumour in the ovary, this was a challenging procedure. Due to the giant tumour, the intestinal tract throughout was compressed and flattened which was putting pressure on the gut leading to risk of rupture in the ovary," doctors said.
