AKIPRESS.COM - Neurosurgeons of the National Hospital in Bishkek were able to successfully remove a bullet in the head of a 30-year-old man, who turned to the hospital on his own after 2 days being shot in the head, doctor said.

Neurosurgeon Dyolos Muratov, who assisted the chief surgeon Bektemir Mukambetomurov during the operation, told AKIpress in an interview that the patient came to the hospital on his own. He had a gunshot wound in his head and it damaged frontal lobes, hemispheric fissure, and occipital lobe.

"A bullet hit the forehead and got stuck in the back of the head," he said.

"The patient refuses to reveal how he received a wound. It is a very interesting case, because he sat at home 2 days after he was wounded and only decided to turn to the hospital after the headaches got severe and his temperature went up,"  doctor Muratov said.

The bullet in his head caused meningoencephalitis of the brain, that is why he had to be treated with strong antibiotics and only after 5 days he had a surgery.

The doctor also said the removal of the bullet was done manually due to the absence of special equipment.

"Finding the bullet in the brain is very difficult. It is like searching for a black cat in the dark room. Now the patient's condition is normal, he can speak, his hands and feet work, the temperature is normal, meningitis is gone. His health is stable. If everything will continue to be OK, the patient will be discharged from the hospital after a week," Muratov said.
