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.

Quote:
Calling upon the healthcare industry to promote medical tourism in a big way, Bhimaraya Metri, Director, Indian Institute of Management, Tiruchi, on Sunday said that doctor-patient ratio should be improved so as to improve the quality of medical care.

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.

Several public and private sector hospitals had improved their infrastructure, thereby enabling them to provide quality medical care to the patients.

Mr. Metri said that there was a great scope for promoting medical tourism and hospitals should tap this by strengthening the infrastructure. The country also needed more doctors, he said.

G. Anitha, Dean-KAPV Medical College and Hospital, Tiruchi, said that the quality of medical services provided in the emergency room was of paramount importance and often had a direct bearing on the morbidity and mortality of a patient. It was time to enhance this service and focus on all areas of emergency services.

M. Chenniapan, senior cardiologist and Honorary Director of Medical Education, Apollo Hospitals, Tiruchi, S. Senthilkumar, Hospital Administrator and Assistant Director Medical Services, Apollo Speciality Hospitals, Tiruchi and others spoke.

Narrating her fight against cancer, actor Gautami Tadimalla on Sunday drove home the need for spreading greater awareness about the disease affecting several women.

Addressing a “Conquerors Meet” attended by breast cancer survivors and their families, Ms. Gautami called upon the participants to spread the message on ways to conquer the disease.


The meeting was organised by the Dr. K. Shantha Breast Cancer Foundation and Dr. Viswanathan Hospitals.

“You have experienced the disease and now you are ready to convey the message to the world that cancer can be conquered”, Ms. Gautami told the breast cancer survivors and their families.

Stating that cancer could be won, Ms. Gautami called upon the participants to do their bit in spreading awareness by narrating their experience and how happy they were now after fighting the disease in family gatherings and to neighbours.

“We can save a lot of lives by sharing this experience”, Ms. Gautami said advocating the need to keep spreading the message to the society in a sustained manner.

“All of us have to join together and act like an army in taking forward this message to the society as we (breast cancer survivors) alone have undergone the experience”, said Ms. Gautami, also the founder of Life Again Foundation.

“Sharing our experience and the ways to conquer the disease would be the greatest service rendered by us to the society”, Ms. Gautami told the participants.

K. Meena, former Vice Chancellor, Bharathidasan University said women’s health was very important for societal development.

K. Govindaraj, founder of Dr. K. Shantha Breast Cancer Foundation and Director of G. Viswanathan Speciality Hospitals, Tiruchi, said the foundation would be happy to partner with Life Again Foundation in spreading awareness about breast cancer and ways to conquer it.

TN resumes cochlear implant surgery after three-month gap



Quote:
Tamil Nadu government's scheme for free cochlear implantation which grind to a halt by July-end after the government reduced the amount reimbursable for the implants resumed on Thursday, with Royal Pearl Hospital in Trichy doing the first implant since the price revision.

The government on July 27 informed all empaneled hospitals that it will be reimbursing only Rs 3.84 lakh instead of Rs 5.35 lakh as it was found that FDA-approved implant was being sold for the neighbouring Kerala government's scheme for Rs 3.84 lakh.

Following this, no cochlear implant was done though about 500 children are on the waiting list.

Now a few hospitals are planning to resume the surgery though the implants may not be available at the government-fixed price. This is because the government pays another Rs 2.55 lakh for post-implant therapy, associated services and surgeon's fee, taking the total expenses on a child to Rs 6.39 lakh.

Dr T N Janakiram, managing director of Royal Pearl Hospital, which was empaneled two months ago, said his hospital has started implant surgeries at the new rate. "We did the first surgery on Thursday. Three more are lined up for Friday. We plan to do four more as soon as approvals come through," he told TOI.

Another ENT surgeon confirmed that his hospital too will start implantation under the government scheme next week.

"Bulk of our implantation surgeries are under the government programme. We have the infrastructure and staff for post-implantation audio-visual therapy (AVT). It makes no sense to continue paying salaries and keep the facility idle. With the government paying generously (Rs 64,000) for the switching on and mapping (programming) of the external processor (the external part of the implant that goes over the ear) and Rs 1.3 lakh for AVT, we will be able to run the programme even if we do not get the implant for Rs 3.84 lakh," said the surgeon. The government allocation includes Rs 60,000 as surgeon's fee.

Executives of cochlear implant companies said it would not be viable to sell the implants at the price since TN did not do bulk buying through a tender system. The Kerala government got the price reduced as it bought about 200 implants in bulk from a company. Many TN hospitals are now in talks with the companies to buy implants in larger numbers at a reduced price, though not as low as Rs 3.84 lakh.

Tamil Nadu is the leader in cochlear implants, with a record of 2,856 implantations from 2012 till July this year, while a Union government programme launched in 2014 had done just 911 cases till the end of August 2017. The state did 720 surgeries in 2016 and 386 this year till the price revision that stalled the programme.
