Mukta Moni to undergo arm surgery today

Doctors at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) are all set to operate on the infected right arm of 12-year-old Mukta Moni today. Two operation theatres (OTs) have been kept ready for the surgery. A team comprising doctors and nurses has also been formed to look after Mukta for three days after the operation. “We'll try to do our best. We'll stand in front of the surgery table today (Saturday) with the prayers and good wishes of all the people of the country,” Dr Samanta Lal Sen, coordinator of the Burn & Plastic Surgery Unit of DMCH, told The Independent yesterday.


Her parents Ibrahim and Asma Khatun also sought blessings of people for successful operation of their child. Earlier, a 13-member medical board took the decision to operate her after examining a biopsy report of her right arm. The biopsy conducted on Mukta on August 5 revealed that she has developed tumours in her blood vessels.He said that in addition to DMCH doctors, some surgeons from other hospitals will also take part in the operation. Dr Sen mentioned that Mukta had been suffering from fever since yesterday morning, saying they might change their decision to operate her arm in case she does not recover from it.

Doctors said there was a possibility of severe bleeding during the surgery and accrodingly requisitioned 10 bags of blood before going in for the operation.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has taken responsibility for the treatment of the girl, who was admitted to the burns unit of DMCH on July 10. She has been kept at the hospital’s intensive care unit.

According to Mukta’s medical history, her parents had observed a small swelling on her chest when she was three years old. After a few days, marble-like protrusions appeared underneath her left armpit. Her parents first took her to local doctors, but to no avail. Thus began a long round of treatment that is continuing till this day. Mukta complains of unbearable pain in her affected hand, which is infested with parasitic worms.
