One-stage surgery resulted in two healings
Mr. Lin, an 80 yea old senior engineer, had a mandibular osteonecrosis with ulceration and purulence at the region of his cheek as complication due to radiotherapy treatment given agait his oral cancer.
After being traumatized both physiologically and psychologically, Mr. Lin was finally accompanied by his family to the Stomatology Department of the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hospital (SYSMH), Zhongshan Univeity for treatment.
After careful examination, Prof. Wei Liang Chen, the director of the Stomatology Department advised Mr. Lin that the necrotic bone must be removed as soon as possible and have his mandible recotructed. Mr. Lin accepted Prof. Chen’s treatment plan immediately.
However, Prof. Chen looked carefully back to Mr. Lin and to the way by which he was walking, and then asked Mr. Lin: “Have you ever felt any discomfort at your abdomen?”, then he replied: “That is my problem! I have been feeling this swelling here which sometimes appea and disappea. It wasn’t painful before, but now I am feeling a little pain these last days”.
Mr. Lin bashfully then pointed to his left groin region. Prof. Chen examined and found a pear-shaped lump, narrow at the top and wide at the bottom. Prof. Chen slightly squint his eyes and phoned Prof. Shuang Chen of the GI Surgery Department. Soon, Prof. Shuang Chen came and confirmed that Mr. Lin had indeed an indirect inguinal hernia.
This old fellow, who experienced a lot in his life and suffered a great deal with an unexpected osteonecrosis and an unnoticed hernia, will finally receive a proper treatment by Dr Wei Liang Chen and Dr. Shuang Chen. They agreed to proceed an one-stage surgery to release Mr. Lin longtime suffering and optimize the whole process as well as to improve the prognostic of the whole situation.
The perfect cooperation between two professo resulted in two surgeries done in 80 minutes. This one-stage surgery not only resolved the patient suffering but also saved 30% in financial costs and 50% in reducing days of stay in hospital.
