Doctors on Tuesday removed the left kidney of Ayazuddin, the son of former cricketer and Moradabad MP, Mohammad Azharuddin.
Ayazuddin had been critically injured in a bike accident on the Outer Ring Road on Sunday in which his cousin Ajmal had died.
Doctors at the Apollo Hospital said that a nephrectomy (removal of kidney) had been performed on Ayazuddin’s left kidney. His condition still remains critical.
Dr Hari Prasad, CEO of Apollo Hospitals, said that Ayaz had been unconscious and his neurologic status continued to be a cause of grave concern. He is being continuously monitored by a multi-specialty team round the clock.
“We have to monitor him hourly and keep a close watch on him,” Dr Prasad said, adding, “He was bleeding continuously from the injury to his left kidney and left nephrectomy was performed on Tuesday morning. His vital parameters are being maintained with supports and he continues to be on ventilator. His status remains critical.”
Dr Prasad said that their worry was that the brain had been deprived of oxygen and blood till the time Ayaz was brought to the hospital.
It is suspected that there might have been significant brain damage due to anoxia during the period. This can be confirmed only after serial neurological tests, he said. The youth’s mother, Naureen, has been in the hospital ever since she flew in from Saudi Arabia.
Azharuddin, meanwhile, has been spending time with Farha, his sister, and with Ayazuddin at the hospital. Farha’s son Ajmal, who was riding pillion, had died in the accident. The number of VIP visitors to the hospital came down on Tuesday.
The ministers, Dr J. Geeta Reddy and Ponnala Lakshmaiah, actor Rajashekar and his wife Jeevitha, were some of the prominent visitorsof the day. Well wishers feel the family can now get some rest and spend time with each other. (DC)
