The surgical team at Hira General Hospital has successfully managed to end the suffering of a 17-year-old Saudi girl, as they removed the inflated part of the intestine and rectum.
The patient was suffering from swelling in the colon and rectum; due to the accumulation of stool or feces inside the intestine over a 17-year period. She had undergone the medical examinations, basic tests and necessary x-rays, which showed loss of the nerves responsible for the rectum and large intestine control. Then, a 3-hour surgery has been conducted to remove the inflated part of the intestine and rectum.
