Injured Arunima’s condition stable, say doctorsApril 19th, 2011 - 4:15 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, April 19 (IANS) National-level volleyball player Arunima Sinha, whose left leg had to be amputated after robbers threw her off a running train last week, is in a stable condition, doctors at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) said Tuesday.
She is now in the orthopaedic department at AIIMS. She was brought to the AIIMS Trauma Centre Monday night after a serious infection was noticed in the amputated leg for which she underwent a second round of surgery at a prestigious Lucknow hospital Sunday.
“She has been admitted to the orthopaedic department and is stable. Her haemoglobin level had fallen drastically and she was given blood and plasma,” M.C. Misra, AIIMS Trauma Centre head, told IANS.
The health ministry Monday offered her “the best possible facilities and treatment”.
In his letter, Minister of State for Health Dinesh Trivedi had Sunday expressed concern about the quality of medical care Arunima, 23, was getting at the King George’s Medical College (KGMC) in Lucknow, which now called the Chattrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University.
On Monday, union Sports Minister Ajay Maken came to meet Arunima at the hospital and offered to shift her to New Delhi for specialised treatment. When her condition worsened, she was shifted to AIIMS.
Arunima was pushed out of the general compartment of the Padmawati Express near Bareilly April 11 while resisting a chain-snatching attempt by some hoodlums as she was travelling from Lucknow to Delhi.
Her left leg was crushed when it came under the wheels of another train passing on the parallel rail track and had to be amputated.
Railway police carried her to the local district hospital where she lay injured, traumatised and unconscious until Wednesday morning.
