Navigating Surgical Challenges: Successful Robotic Radical Hysterectomy in a Patient with Glucose - 6 - Phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency

Dr. Aneeta Singh


Abstract: This case report presents the successful management of a patient with Glucose - 6 - Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency who underwent a robotic radical hysterectomy for the treatment of cervical cancer. In order to treat cervical cancer, the patient underwent a robotic radical hysterectomy. A genetic enzyme disorder known as G6PD deficiency presents surgical complications in the form of oxidative stress and hemolysis. Emphasising the significance of a multidisciplinary approach in the management of these patients and the reduction of hemolysis risk during surgical procedures is the objective of this report. In this instance, we deliberate on preoperative evaluations, perioperative interventions, and postoperative results, underscoring the criticality of a meticulously customised anaesthetic and surgical strategy to safeguard the patient and achieve a favourable surgical outcome. This case highlights the importance of healthcare providers developing strategies to reduce the risk of hemolysis and other complications during surgical interventions in G6PD - deficient patients, as well as being aware of the potential difficulties that may arise. The perioperative management, comprising preoperative evaluation, intraoperative safety measures, and postoperative attention, was deliberated upon as factors that contributed to the patient's smooth recuperation.
