KNH surgeons successfully reattach severed manhood of teen victim of horrific assault – Nairobi News

Surgeons at Kenyatta National Hospital have successfully reattached a teenager’s severed manhood after a seven-hour operation.

Led by Prof Stanely Khainga, the team of urologists and plastic surgeons worked to reattach the teenager’s organ which was severed after an attack at his home.

The 16 year old teenager, only known as A.M. for reasons of protecting his privacy, was assaulted by unknown people at around 1 a.m. on the night of December 18, 2018.

During the horrifying night attack that took place at the Form Three student’s home, the assailants severed his male reproductive organ or penis.

“We received the case as a referral from one of the county hospitals at around 9 a.m. on December 19, 2018. His penis had been amputated at the base using a kitchen knife,” said Prof Khainga.

“Upon arrival, the patient was sick looking, confused and slightly pale but stable. He was received by a team of urologists and plastic surgeons,” the medic said.

“After initial examination and resuscitation, we immediately prepared him for theatre where we began the process of re-implantation of the penis,” said Prof Khainga.

CUT OFF 

The team, which included University of Nairobi lecturer and blood vessel or microvascular surgeon Dr Ferdinand Nangole, Dr Jujo and Dr Were, first examined the stump left behind when the organ was cut off.

“On examining the stump, we noticed it had been dressed to stop the bleeding that occurred immediately after the incident. It also had minimal soiling, with the blood vessels around the base and urethra, which passes urine, exposed,” he said.

The surgeon said the knife had sliced clean through the base of the penis, in an act he termed as “a guillotine-like amputation through the organ’s base”.

A guillotine is a device consisting of a large knife blade that fell on the victim’s neck that was invented during the French Revolution to cut off the heads of condemned prisoners.

Such as an occurrence is known as a total penile amputation in medical terms.

In the surgical procedures carried out to manage total penile amputations, patients are managed by re-suturing or restoring the penile structures while repairing the vessels.

The US National Library of Medicine reports that there have been some few cases of failure of the organ to recover sensory abilities, despite the penile shaft surviving the operation.

FIRST TIME

This is the first time an operation of this kind was successfully carried out on Kenyan soil.

Prof Khainga said the goal of the procedure was to achieve normal function.

“Our management goal was to restore normal function, which consists of urination, or passing urine, sexual gratification, improved self or body image and reproduction. We also sought to achieve adequate aesthetic appearance or normal appearance of the organ, including length,” he said.

During the seven hour procedure, the surgical team inserted a catheter into the severed organ to act as a support or stent during re-implantation.

They then proceeded to carry out the delicate process of repairing the urethra or passage used to pass urine and semen out of the penis, known as urethroplasty.

Urethroplasty is an open surgical reconstruction or replacement of the urethra that has been narrowed by scar tissue. The procedure is done to increase the size of the urine channel to improve urine flow.

Doctors also carried out debridement of the penis and the stump. This is the removal of necrotic tissue to promote the healing of a wound. This is because the affected area can sometimes end up getting covered with dead or necrotic tissue. This can be harmful to the body’s ability to recover and develop new skin, making debridement a necessary to remove all that dead material.

Another procedure that doctors successfully completed was the repair of the corpus spongiosum, which contains spongy erectile tissue.

Still working on the affected organ, medics surgically repaired the corpus cavernosus, which is a band of tissue that helps to facilitates penile erections.

BLOOD FLOW 

The repair of the penile shaft included the restoration of normal blood flow and function in the blood vessels known as cavernosal arteries that run along the middle of each corpus cavernosa.

Prof Khainga said the patient was now stable and doing well on the road to recovery.

“” He has done well and is reporting erections with adequate length. His wounds have also healed, he said.

The surgeon said the patient is due for discharge in a fortnight.

“A.M. is due for a discharge in the next two weeks after the removal of the urethral catheter, which was placed in the urethra to facilitate the passage of urine as he recovers,” said the medic.

The referral facility has so far refused to reveal details of the teenager’s identity and the circumstances of the attack, citing the need to protect the patient’s privacy and confidentiality.

After declaring that long distance relationships aren’t for her, Sherlyne Anyango might have bagged herself a new mzungu boyfriend. It’s barely days since she left the country to go to the States to ‘hustle’. According to her, it’s easier to hustle in the States with her twerking talent.

Love At First Sight?

Well, she moved on quickly! This was the reaction of most of her fans after Sherlyne went live with her new catch. Most people were surprised by how fast she possibly got a boyfriend. But she hasn’t made it clear.

While this might seem unfair to her Kenyan bae, Oga Obinna, it was a mutual agreement between them to dissolve their relationship due to the distance between them.

”I’m a single boy again now😪😱!! Now with the standards you set who will fit in🤷🏿 who will fill your shoes??But Si Ni Life… But for now Kill Them with your AWESOMENESS and SECURE THE BAG!!! Don’t let nobody tell you otherwise. Plus there will always be space for you in my Heart and Kidney🙊🙈🙏🏿.”

In line to this, Sherlyne had also declared how much she misses Obinna and wrote back to him;

  ”Don’t make me cry. That’s life 😞😞. I feel bad. I miss you badly.”

Well, turns out she won’t be missing him any more after getting a new catch. Obinna has not yet responded to Sherlyne’s video posted on her Insta stories. I bet he’s not happy seeing her with another man.

Tips to help you get the perfect blazer Eve woman

 Choosing a blazer is key as it can either break or make your outfit (Image: Pinterest)

 

When it comes to buying or tailoring a new blazer, most people think it’s all about getting what fits. Even though that is one of the most vital things to focus on when selecting blazers, there are other things you need to look out for in order to have a perfect and versatile blazer.

Versatile is not just about being able to match most pieces in your closet, but something that will enhance your outfits and define your best features while at it. In case you are wondering on where to start with buying a blazer, start here:

 Always go for a colour that will pair well with most pieces in your closet (Image: Pinterest)

Yes, this is the first thing you should consider before making or buying yourself a blazer. You need to check your closet and consider the most dominant colour and pieces, can they be layered with a blazer or paired together?

Once that is set, you are good to go, though the more colourful a blazer is the more fun you will have pairing it with other pieces.

When selecting the perfect blazer always be very careful not to choose a small blazer. You might confuse a small blazer for a fitting one.

It should not be too tight that your shoulders cannot move in it or you can barely button it.

Although ladies are lucky they can go with any arm length, because it can be considered fashionable, ensure that it is your size. Also, avoid going for extra-large coats that will drown you and hide your best features.

 The design and texture of a blazer will play heavily on how good you look (Image: Pinterest)

A blazer is in between a suit jacket and a hoodie. Meaning, it should be able to pass for official and casual events. Let your guide be what you are buying it for.

There are different kinds of blazers ranging from open front blazers, single breasted blazers, belted ones, the list is endless.

Always go for a blazer that resonates with your style and closet items. Also, long blazers are classier and versatile than the shorter boyfriend ones. This is in terms of versatility.

Are you looking for a linen blazer, cotton or the suit material fabric? Do you want it shiny or matte? Do you need one with metal studded elements or with embellished buttons like the army? The kind of texture you go for will determine the way you dress your blazer.

Although blazers are meant to match with all outfits, the kind of design you go for can either limit your outfit choices or broaden your matching game.

 The longer the blazer, the more you can play around with your pieces (Image: Pinterest)

They say the longer the blazer, the double the respect. You already know what I mean by this. Longer blazers are more eye catching, trendy and versatile. It will be easier for you to pair them to a tiny skirt, pencil trouser or palazzos.

Also did I mention how well they pair with crop tops? Yes, when buying a blazer, the length is very important.

Residents of Pipeline Transami area are decrying poor drainage system that has caused sewage water to overflow in their area of residence.

The residents claim that the overflowing sewage is not only putting their lives at risk but also causing air pollution.

They have called on Nairobi Metropolitan Services and Nairobi City Water and Sewage Company to come on board and expand the sewer lines before more areas are flooded with raw human wastes coming from the blocked pipes.
“We want Major Badi and our leaders to resolve this menace immediately. It’s terrible many have been forced to shift their businesses because of the foul smell,” they said.
Pastor Joe Ndivoh of Word Evangelistic Explosion Ministries says that they have been forced to call off the Sunday School Service to protect the children from the smelly sewage.
‘‘We now fear that if prompt action is not taken then we will have a bigger health problem than this because we fear there could be an outbreak of water-borne disease anytime,’’ Pastor Ndivoh added.
