Mumbai: Two of the six Dongri building collapse victims who were admitted to JJ Hospital on July 16, Halima Idrisi (28) and Sajida Shehzad (58), are still receiving treatment.

Ms Idrisi, who lost her two sons in the collapse, is critical while Ms Shehzad, who lost her granddaughter and son in the tragedy, could only be fed through IV tubes, but is currently stable.

 

According to JJ Hospital medical superintendent Dr Sanjay Surase, Ms Idrisi is on oxygen support.

“The two patients had undergone plastic surgery in order to avoid infection,” JJ Hospital’s dean Dr Ajay Chandanwale said.

Stating that Ms Idrisi had a crush injury on her right hand, Dr Surase said surgeons have carried out a fasciotomy, where the fascia —  a thin sheath of fibrous tissue enclosing a muscle or other organ — is cut to relieve tension or pressure commonly to treat the resulting loss of circulation to an area of tissue or muscle, on her to save her limb.

“She will require more surgeries in the next few weeks. She may be taken in for another procedure in a day or two depending on her condition,” he said.

 

Ms Shehzad. who suffered a crush injury to her forearm, has undergone debridement procedure in order to remove dead and damaged tissues.
