Sri Venkata Sai Hrudayalaya, Tirupati, has claimed to have performed a rare surgery on a 50-year-old patient Subbarayalu suffering from a renal complication.

The resident of Gudur was admitted when he was having difficulty in breathing. Investigations revealed that apart from his kidney problem, he had a tumour in the right ventricle on the right side of the heart, which had been obstructing the flow of blood from the heart to the lungs.

Cardiologist B. Yugandhar, surgeon Dilip and anaesthetist Sreenivas Sudhakar performed the surgery and successfully removed the tumour.

According to Dr. Yugandhar, the head of the hospital, it is very rare to see tumours on the right side of the heart.
