4.9 kg uterus removed

A team of five Indian doctors from the Sunrise Institute of Medical Sciences, Kochi, Kerala, lead by Dr Hafeez Rehman, have removed a 4.9 kg uterus from an unnamed 46-year old woman.

As per the Guinness Book of World Records, the heaviest uterus ever removed weighs 3.2 kgs. The doctors have already sent details of their September 29 feat for inclusion in the book.

What makes this surgery even more significant is that this fibroid non-cancerous tumor that resembled a full-term pregnancy of 36 weeks, was removed in just 28 minutes with minimum blood loss using laproscopic hysterectomy. The lady was discharged for the hospital in 24 hours and has resumed work.

The uterus is being preserved in the pathological lab of the hospital for professional reference.
