Second surgery on Muktamoni ‘successful’: Doctors

Doctors at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) have successfully completed the second surgery on Satkhira girl Muktamoni’s hemangioma tumour.


She is currently under observation and will require a few more rounds of surgery before the tumour is completely removed, doctors said.


The 12-year-old was taken to the operation theatre at 9:30am on Tuesday and the surgery took 45 minutes.


Muktamoni underwent a successful surgery and she is doing well, Samanta Lal Sen, national coordinator of DMCH's Burn and Plastic Surgery Unit said.


The first surgical operation on Muktamoni was carried out successfully at the DMCH without amputating her right hand on August 12.


 Muktamoni, a 10-year-old girl of Kamarbaisa village in Satkhira sadar upazila, was admitted to the DMCH on July 11 with a malignant growth on her right arm.


 After her admission to the DHCH, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has taken responsibility of the treatment of Muktamoni.


According to her father Ibrahim, a grocery shop owner of Kamarbaisa village in Sadar upazila, Muktamoni and her twin sister Hiramoni were a pair of healthy baby girls during their birth.


However, when Muktamoni was about 18-month-old, a wart appeared on her right arm.
