A bullet lodged in the root of a 60-year-old man’s neck was successfully removed at SPS Apollo Hospital recently.

Baldev Krishan, of Dhanvan village, Sangrur, was hit by a stray bullet while working in his fields on October 21. The bullet entered from the right side of the neck and got stuck in the neck’s root close to apex of the lung and cervical vertebra. Dr Narinder Verma, head of department of ENT, successfully removed the bullet by exploring the neck under general anaesthesia. Patient recovered smoothly and was discharged in satisfactory condition after three days.

Dr Verma said, “Patient was simply lucky, as little further push of the bullet in the neck would have caused devastating consequences.” He added that delay in removal of the bullet could have caused further complications.”
