Incidentally, Dr. Kutty was in news for performing a bloodless operation of a patient from Malad, Mumbai. The patient was a staunch follower of Jehovah’s Witness, a Christian sect, who refuse blood transfusions. The woman was diagnosed with sever mitral stenosis, a condition where the valve opens narrowly, restricting blood flow. The condition was life threatening as blood flow between the left chambers of the heart was affected and what added to the complication was the patient didn’t want to receive blood. She also refused autologous blood transfusion, a procedure in which the patient’s blood is drawn, preserved and transfused back to her.
Dr. Kutty successfully treated her by putting her on a daily dose of iron tablets and also injecting iron intravenously once in a month. He performed her surgery once the haemoglobin levels were healthy enough to take a blood loss of 700 ml, equivalent to two bottles of blood. The patient recovered in due course.
