Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: A Nigerian young woman, who’s suffering from a medical condition that is normally treated with the removal of uterus, has undergone a rare procedure at a Delhi hospital that allowed her to save her critical organ. In her mid-20s, was diagnosed with adenomyosis, which occurs when the tissue that normally lines the uterus (endometrial tissue) grows into the muscular wall of the uterus. Dinesh Kansal, senior consultant, obstetrics and gynaecology, BLK Super Speciality Hospital said that the patient was suffering from the disease for more than 12 years and had undergone a procedure back in her country.

She was always in pain and could not sit straight, which affected her spinal cord severely. Osada procedure is a hope for those women who suffer from adenomyosis as it offers dramatic reduction in dysmenorrhoea (painful menstruation, typically involving abdominal cramps), menorrhagia (abnormally heavy bleeding at menstruation) and allows women who wish to conceive in future.
