KIMS 2nd in India to launch revolutionary Hemospray, Stopping gastrointestinal bleeding within 10 minutes

Bhubaneswar: The Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) has recently achieved a remarkable feat by introducing India’s second-ever hemospray powder, a groundbreaking innovation in the field of medical science. This revolutionary powder has the extraordinary capability to halt gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding within a mere 10 minutes, thereby significantly reducing mortality rates and potentially saving countless lives.

In a recent case, KIMS administered this pioneering treatment to a middle-aged woman who was experiencing severe lower GI bleeding following surgery. The application of the endoscopic hemospray powder produced immediate and remarkable results, enabling the patient to be discharged from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) the very next day.

The utilization of this hemospray powder holds immense promise, particularly in emergency situations, where rapid intervention is crucial to stop internal GI bleeding and prevent life-threatening complications. This innovation represents a paradigm shift and a valuable addition to the arsenal of gastroenterological treatments, offering a safe and effective solution in scenarios where conventional endoscopic methods may prove insufficient.

The introduction of the hemospray powder at KIMS reflects a broader commitment to providing exceptional medical care to the people of Eastern India, leveraging the institution’s wealth of experience and expertise. Dr. Achyuta Samanta, the esteemed Founder of KIIT and KISS, commended the medical professionals at KIMS for their pioneering efforts in adopting this groundbreaking solution to advance patient care.

The Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at KIMS, renowned for its comprehensive range of outpatient, inpatient, and endoscopic services, is led by a team of distinguished experts. Professor Manoj Kumar Sahu serves as the department head, receiving guidance from esteemed figures such as Professor S.K. Acharya (Pro Chancellor, KIIT University), Professor Y.K. Chawla (Chairman of Academics, KIMS), and Professor A.C. Anand (Emeritus Professor, Gastroenterology).

This department also boasts a dedicated team comprising Dr. S.C. Panigrahi, Professor Preetam Nath, Dr. B. Mallick, Dr. D. Praharaj, Dr. S.K. Sahu, and Dr. S. Giri, all of whom contribute their expertise to furthering the institution’s mission of excellence in healthcare delivery.
