Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 23 Dec,2020

Mr. Mahboob Rahman, a 51-year-old from Murshidabad, was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic adenocarcinoma. In 2019, he was suffering from jaundice for which he underwent stenting to relieve the jaundice. He then underwent two more stenting surgeries at a hospital in Midnapore, West Bengal. He was later brought to Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata and was diagnosed with a mass at the pancreatic head. The team of doctors at Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata successfully performed a complex surgery, which involved replacing the portal vein damaged by the pancreatic cancer with artificial graft tube (PTFE graft), a first for Eastern India.
