Hyderabad: Sep 12, 2011
The condition of Ayazuddin, son of former Indian cricket captain and Moradabad MP Mohammad Azharuddin, who was grievously injured in a mishap, continues to be "very critical" for the second day today even as doctors are trying to assess the condition of his brain.
"His (Ayazuddin's) condition continues to be very critical and the patient is being managed in the Intensive Care Unit on ventilator and BP support," a medical bulletin issued this evening by the super-specialty hospital where he is being treated said.
"Neurological assessments are being performed to assess his brain condition, which could be a major concern. It is suspected that there may be a significant brain dysfunction due to anoxia during the period in which the patient was in a collapsed stage, which can be confirmed only after serial neurological tests," it said.
Ayazuddin sustained grievous injuries while his 16-year-old cousin Ajmal died in the motorbike accident that took place on the outskirts of the city yesterday.
"Mohd Ayaz, 19 years, was brought to the hospital on the morning of September 11 in a collapsed state. Following aggressive resuscitation, heart activity was revived and he was taken for emergency surgery in view of uncontrolled bleeding from the left lung injury.
"Subsequently, he started bleeding from the left kidney and bladder. Patient was given blood products and coagulation factors... bleeding was controlled," the bulletin said.
Azharuddin, who flew in here from London in the wee hours, was in the hospital with his family members.
Several prominent personalities like Telugu Desam Party Chief N Chandrababu Naidu and actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi visited the hospital.
According to police, the mishap occurred around 9 AM yesterday near Puppalguda toll-gate on Outer Ring Road here when the sports bike, which Ayazuddin and Ajmaan were riding, skidded.
Ayazuddin is the former cricketer's son from his first wife Naureen.
Ayazuddin, who is pursuing B.Com at a city college, is a budding cricketer who played for his school and also club cricket. (PTI)
