An 8 year old girl on Wednesday was able to sip water after 7 years as a result of doctors performed a rare operation called 'gastric pull up with esophageal reconstruction at Ahmedabad-based VS Hospital. According to the doctors, a gastric pull-up involves bringing up the stomach from the abdomen into the chest area, and attaching it to the remaining portion of the esophagus.

The patient had mistakenly consumed acid when she was just 1.5 years old. Since then, she was being provided food through a pipe which was inserted in her intestine for over seven years. Doctors at the hospital found that her internal organs had been damaged by the acid consumed. So they decided to make a pipe which attaches the food-pipe to gut so that the girl can swallow food in future.
