Nigeria Doctors Saved Bricklayer Pierced By Hammer in the Neck (Very Graphic) by INTERMAN: 8:59pm On Nov 21, 2019
As recently shared by Mazi Kelechi via facebook

FMC Owerri emergency response of Surgeons on
call saved a life at around 10:30pm yesterday.
This is a 35yr-old Bricklayer who accidentally fell
from a Storey building while at work and landed
with the left lateral anterior Neck, on a hammer
standing on the ground with the handle facing
upwards. This pierced via the anterior and exited on
the posterior. However, as God may have it, he was
*not in any respiratory distress* and *vitals were
relatively stable on presentation".
Being the *Senior Registrar on call in Ear, Nose and
Throat and Head and Neck Surgeon*, I called out
my 2 ENT Consultants, quickly raised the alarm and
invited the Vascular Surgeons, Burns and plastic,
Traumatologist / Spine Surgeons, Anaesthetist, &
Theatre Peri-op Nurses informed to get set..!!
Necessary urgent investigations were done, thanks
to our Med. Laboratory Scientists friends, who acted
promptly as the urgency demanded, gave us 4 units
of screened / cross matched blood and provided
the results needed as fast as possible.
... Within a short while, all the invited Surgeons
stormed the Casualty. We quickly wheeled the
patient to the theatre and Neck Exploration with
foreign body removal was done.
...Miraculous intra-op findings: The hammer neatly
passed *medial* to the Carotid vessel and IJV and
*lateral* to the Oesophagus, Trachea and the
Vertebral column.
... Patient was later transferred to the ICU by the
Anaesthetist for observation.
... Early this morning when checked, Patient is
doing very well, vitals are still stable.
To God be the glory
*Dr. Ibekwe Nnaemeka*

Great feat from an institution starved of budgetary support and commensurate financial remuneration.

Just when you think the carotid artery or one of its branches would be lacerated by such brute force, Baba God stealthily meanders the penetrating object to safety. Leaving us wondering, what if....


Obrigado!!

I can imagine the kind of force needed to pierce him because that edge of wood was blunt.More amazing was that it missed major blood vessels.
So traumatic.

You would be surprised it's the hammer that saved his life. If the hammer hadn't cushioned the fall his head would have been smashed by his body weight. God is wonderful.
