New facility for cardiac patients at Tiruchi GH
Quote:

EECP will provide non-invasive treatment

The K. A. P. Viswanatham Medical College has acquired Enhanced External Counter Pulsation (EECP) equipment for providing non-invasive treatment for patients with refractory cardiac failure.

Dean (in-charge) G. Anitha said that the equipment worth of Rs. 50 lakh has already been installed at the hospital.

Patients, who were not responding well after the angioplasty, patients who were not fit for surgery and patients with triple vessel disease with refractory failure could go in for the non-invasive treatment.

The treatment did not require hospital admission. A patient should undergo the treatment for 35 days. The patient had to spend one hour daily in the hospital. The treatment would increase the supply of blood to the heart.

The benefits can be observed between 15 and 20 days of the treatment. Decreased external dyspnoea and decreased anginal episode were among the benefits.

The patient could feel better within three weeks of the treatment, she added.

Dr. Anitha said the treatment would be effective for three to five years after undertaking 35 days therapy, which would be offered at the hospital shortly.

The procedure has been covered under the Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme.

Enlarged 7kg kidney removed from Malaysian and Twin Kidney Transplant on him at Appollo,Trichy

Quote:
The doctors at the Apollo Hospitals in Trichy performed a rare surgery to remove enlarged damaged kidneys of a male patient from Malaysia and transplant a donor kidney from his relative.

Tan Khaun, 35, from Malaysia was admitted to Apollo Hospitals here for kidney transplantation a week back. On evaluation, it was found that his kidneys were enlarged massively.

The rarity of the case was such that the doctors had to perform nephrectomy (removal of kidney) before transplantation. "The patient has autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, a condition in which the patient develops cysts, that is, water filled cavities in both the kidneys and damage them over the years," said a press statement from the hospital on Monday.

After Tan Khaun was deemed fit for the surgery, his kidneys were removed. The left kidney weighed 7kg and right weighed about 4.3kg as against the normal weight of 200-210gm for the left and 190-200gm for the right.

"It is a rare case because it is an inherited condition. In such a case, the kidneys should be removed before transplanting. He was put on dialysis after his kidneys were removed and till the kidney was received from the donor," said Dr Senthil Kumar, assistant medical director of medical services and hospital administration.

The hospital said that one of his relatives volunteered to donate his organ. The legal process for the organ donation got under way as per government regulations.

Apollo Hospitals, Trichy, claimed that it has state-of-the art infrastructure to perform all kinds of organ transplantation.

Speaking at a national-level workshop on “Emergency and Intensive Care CME - EMICON 2017” organized by Apollo Speciality Hospitals, Tiruchi, he said health sector had been undergoing paradigm shift over the years.
