KATHMANDU, Feb 26: Nepali Congress leader Nabindra Raj Joshi, who underwent a surgery after suffering brain hemorrhage this morning, is in a critical condition, according to a doctor involved in his treatment.

The Nepali Congress leader was admitted to the Thapathali-based Norvic International Hospital after brain hemorrhage today morning.

“Joshi suffered from hemorrhage due to massive increase in his blood pressure. There is a blood clot in a sensitive part of his brain. The clot can not be removed even through surgery,” said Dr Rajiv Jha, who operated on Joshi.

“The blood clot has obstructed the flow of ‘water’ – formed in the brain – to body parts,” he said.

As there is a big blood clot, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to his body is obstructed. “About 600 ml of fluid is formed in the brain every day, which flows to the body,” he said, adding that Joshi is currently on ventilation support.
