A Multi-Disciplinary Team at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) has successfully removed a huge cystic growth on the right side of the face; covering eye, frontal bone, ethmoid and frontal sinus.
The mass had 3 litres of dermoid fluid not involving the brain. The face successfully closed with dura patch and cranium mesh.
The surgery was led by MTRH Surgeon Dr. Francis Thuku, a Maxillofacial Surgeon; others were; Dr. Geoffrey Wasike, Neurosurgeon; Dr. Wabwile Machimoto, Ophthalmologist; Anaesthesiologists Dr. Elisha K. Kirwa, Dr. Werunga Kituyi and Scrub Nurse Edward Avula.
Beatrice Nanjala Makokha, a 68- year-old lady, was referred from Bungoma County Hospital to MTRH on Thursday 8th April, 2021.
She came with a history of progressive right facial swelling over many years and had been attended to severally in health facilities.
Upon her arrival, we had a multi-disciplinary team attend to her. They did a couple of blood tests including Full Blood Count, Group & Crossmatch and a Head CT scan using our state-of-the art 128 slice CT scan.
Her SARS-Cov-2 PCR test was negative. She was consequently scheduled for a multi-disciplinary surgery which was done on Monday 12/04/2021.
MTRH will keep treating her until she heals and will be discharged home perhaps after a week or upon satisfactory Hospital recuperation.
The procedure is valued at Ksh 550,000. MTRH will treat Beatrice as a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) client under the Universal Health Coverage.
