Photos: Toddler with screwdriver embedded in her brain undergoes successful surgery to have it removed


In a shocking report, doctors have successfully removed a screwdriver stuck in a toddler's head after a serious accident that threatened to kill the young child. 
  
Doctors were faced with a highly sensitive operation to remove a screwdriver from the head of a toddler who was found with the tool embedded in her brain but successfully scaled it.
 
According to reports, the little girl identified as Han Han from Xuzhou City, in China’s eastern Jiangsu Province, was walking around the house unattended and managed to get her hands on one of the tools lying around. However, she was rushed to the hospital after she tripped and the screwdriver rammed some 10 centimetres (3.9 inches) into her right cheek.
 
She is recuperating from the operation
 
It was revealed that Han Han was crying after tripping and lodging the screwdriver in her head and she later fell unconscious from the pain, causing her parents even more fear.
 
According to Dailystar, Doctor Jiang Dehua, head neurosurgeon at the Xuzhou Central Hospital in China, said the parents had initially refused to let their child undergo surgery, but they were later convinced by a team of doctors.
 
Doctors worked tirelessly to save the girl's life
 
Doctor Jiang said: "Seven centimetres (2.75 inches) of the screwdriver were inside the child’s skull, and 3 centimetres (1.2 inches) had penetrated her brain. 

But luckily it missed her right eye and major blood vessels.
"We could not just pull the screwdriver out – that could have caused unforeseen complications – so we eventually convinced the parents to let us operate."
 
The tool was removed from Han Han’s skull after a meticulous surgery lasting some five hours, with reports saying she suffered very little blood loss in the process.
 
 
Doctor Jiang added: "The surgery was largely successful, and the patient is stable and in recovery.

"However, there is always a risk of infection, so we can only truly say she is in the clear after a week of observation."
 
Doctors reminded parents to keep children in their sights at all times and to ensure that they do not get their hands on dangerous or sharp objects such as screwdrivers, scissors, and knives.
