Using regional anaesthesia: the success of a complex fracture stabilization operation

A medical team at Al-Kafeel Super Speciality Hospital of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine announced that it had succeeded in fixing a complex fracture in the femur of a patient in her seventh decade.
And the specialist in orthopedics, fractures and joints at the hospital, Dr. Mustafa Walid, said, "Our medical team succeeded in performing a fracture fixation in the femur, for a 70-year-old patient," noting that "the operation is very difficult because the patient suffers from chronic diseases, making it difficult to subject her to general anaesthesia."
Walid indicated that "the patient suffers from angina pectoris and an old stroke, with irregular diabetes mellitus," noting that "the operation was performed using regional anesthesia that was given to the patient."
The specialist in orthopedics, fractures and joints confirmed that "the patient was able to stand on her feet the next day after the two-hour operation," noting that "these operations are carried out in Al-Kafeel Hospital, because it has advanced techniques in regional anesthesia, and the presence of modern devices that contribute to performing complex and simple fracture fixations."
