"There is damage at a cellular-level in radiation burns, so we needed to debride it and then cover the open wounds with vascularised tissues — those that carry their own blood supply," Dr Gambhir said.
Wounds from radiation exposure, doctors said, present a tough challenge because of the need to provide viable vascularised tissue covers surgically. Ajai and Deepak said their ulcers kept increasing.
"It took me some time to walk properly because they had to graft skin from my leg and abdomen on my wounds. Before this, I visited so many hospitals in Delhi and even contacted experts in Mumbai. Everyone said they had no experience to surgically treat open radiation wounds," Ajai said.
Both patients were admitted in private hospitals before they were referred to Army Hospital.
