Sher-i-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (SKIMS) Anaesthesia Department creates History by starting Cervical Epidural Anaesthesia for High Risk Thymic tumour surgeries for the first time.


Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease causing self-destruction of persons own muscle cell receptors resulting in profound muscle weakness affecting their quality of life. Besides many other renowned people, the famous Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachhan is also suffering from MG.

Patients with MG when subjected to conventional anaesthesia have problems in recovering back to the state of normal consciousness and muscle power and are usually kept on ventilator in intensive care units (ICU) after surgery till anaesthesia drugs are metabolised completely (removed from body). The technique of cervical analgesia/ anaesthesia has been in vogue for chronic pain management at SKIMS since last few years. By extending the use of this advanced regional anaesthesia technique of cervical epidural analgesia for managing the complete anaesthesia of MG patients operated for high risk Thymic tumours involving neck and chest which requires opening of the chest cavity, the SKIMS has gone a step ahead and crossed its barriers to establish itself as a world renowned centre in anaesthesia care services. The procedure was conducted by Dr. Talib Khan Consultant Incharge, and residents (Dr Shaista Yaqoob, Dr Parvaiz, Dr Zahid, Dr Nida and Dr Khurram) under the supervision Professor Imtiaz A. Naqash HOD Anesthesia and Critical Care.

The Director SKIMS and Ex-Officio Ssecretary to Government of J&K, Professor Omar J. Shah, congratulated the team of anaesthesia department and the paramedical staff for such outstanding delivery of patient care services.
