Quote:
The State government plans to extend cochlear implant surgery facility in tier-II cities in a phased manner, according to Health Minister C. Vijayabaskar.

Speaking to The Hindu on Saturday after handing over hearing aid to three children, who had undergone cochlear implant surgery at the K. A. P. Viswanatham Medical College Hospital a few days ago, Mr. Vijayabaskar said that the surgery would give a fresh lease of life to deaf patients.

Besides the Government Hospital in Chennai and Coimbatore, the cochlear implant surgery facility has been extended to Tiruchi GH.

The State government has decided to set up similar units in tier-II cities, including Madurai and Salem, in a phased manner, he added.

J. Radhakrishnan, Secretary, Health, said that the State government had spent about Rs.305 crore under the Chief Minister Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme. More than 4,400 high end surgeries had been done in the State. The surgeries included 2,389 cochlear implant surgeries, 1,202 kidney transplants and 161 liver transplants. Similarly, stem cell surgeries were performed on 11 patients.

Earlier, the Minister spoke to Varshini (3) from Manappari, Bhuvaneswari (4) from Kaduvetti and Navaneethakrishnan (6) of Villukaranpatti, Manapparai, who had undergone cochlear implant surgery a few days ago. The surgeries, costing Rs. 8 lakh for a child, were performed by a team of ENT surgeons of the KAP Viswanatham Hospital led by S. Palaniappan, Head, Department of ENT, along with S. Mohan Kameswaran, senior ENT surgeon and founder director of Madras ENT Research Foundation..

Tourism Minister Vellamandi N. Natarajan, Backward Class and Minority Welfare Minister S. Valarmathi, Collector K. S. Palanisamy and Dean of the hospital Mary Litty participated.

Tiruchi Government Hospital gets an eye bank

Quote:
The new facility that can store retrieved cornea and help those with corneal blindness will start functioning from today

An eye bank has been established at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital in Tiruchi to store retrieved cornea and help patients with corneal blindness to regain their vision.

The new facility will start functioning on Saturday at the hospital which caters to the medical needs of the poor from neighbouring districts as well.


The Department of Health and Family Welfare, Government of Tamil Nadu, has given its consent and granted permission to start the eye bank at the Tiruchi Government Hospital for the benefit of the poor and needy corneal blind patients.

The eye bank has been set up at a cost of around Rs. 28 lakh and it would be managed by an expert team, comprising two Chief Ophthalmologists and three Assistant Surgeons.

The main function of the bank is to procure the eyes of voluntary donors after their death; transport and store them under aseptic condition and transplant the cornea by surgery to the needy patients to enable them regain vision, Dr. Parthiban Purushothaman, Professor and Head, Department of Ophthalmology, Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital, Tiruchi told ‘The Hindu’. This is the first time that an eye bank has been established at a government hospital in Tiruchi, he said.

A recipient register would be maintained to keep a list of blind and eligible patients who would be called as soon as eyes were available to be transplanted.

The eye bank would serve the needy corneal blind patients awaiting treatment for a long time to gain vision.


The eye bank, under the leadership of the hospital Dean, would organise human corneal retrieval programme within the hospital campus besides conducting awareness campaigns to spread information regarding voluntary eye donation in association with non-governmental and voluntary organisations, said Dr. Parthiban.

The Department of Ophthalmology has a modern operation theatre exclusively for corneal transplant with sophisticated equipment to conduct the procedure immediately on receiving the donor eyes, he further said.

Poor and needy corneal blind patients of Tiruchi and its neighbouring districts would be benefited from the establishment of the eye bank as the surgery would be free of cost for the recipients, he said.

According to statistics there were about 18.7 million blind people in the country of which 1 per cent had corneal blindness that could be treated by corneal transplant surgery.

Dr. Parthiban said the department had a team which would retrieve eyes from donors any time and deposit it in the eye bank for corneal transplantation.

All eye donation information would be kept strictly confidential.

The eye bank would have counsellors to motivate and counsel relatives to donate the eyes of persons who die at the hospital.

Children born deaf also became dumb and through cochlear implant surgeries such children would be able to hear and speak

Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital, attached to K.A.P. Viswanatham Government Medical College, in the city performed its first cochlear implant surgeries on Friday. The surgeries were performed on three children under the Chief Minister’s Comprehensive Health Insurance Scheme.


The surgeries were performed by a team of ENT surgeons of the hospital led by S. Palaniappan, Head, Department of ENT, along with S. Mohan Kameswaran, senior ENT surgeon and founder-director of Madras ENT Research Foundation.

The surgeries, costing about Rs.8 lakh for a child, were performed successfully on three deaf-mute children — Varshini (3) from Manapparai, Bhuvaneswari (4) from Kaduvetti, Thottiyam and Navaneethakrishnan (6) of Villukaranpatti, Manapparai, free of cost under the insurance scheme, K.S.Palanisamy, Collector, and Mary Lilly, Dean of the hospital, announced at a press conference. Dr. Lilly said the three children belonged to poor families.

While parents of two children had approached the hospital authorities, Navananeethakrishnan was referred to the hospital by the Collector after his parents sought help at the weekly grievance redress meeting.

Dr. Kameswaran, who has been performing cochlear implant surgeries since 1996, said deafness by birth was primarily due to consanguineous marriages. Tamil Nadu had a high incidence of deafness at birth because of the large number of consanguineous marriages.

Children born deaf also became dumb and through cochlear implant surgeries such children would be able to hear and speak. However, it was vital that deafness among children was detected early.

The success rate would be good if the surgeries were performed at around the age of three and before the age of six. “The earlier the surgery is performed, the better the result,” he said.

The State government, he pointed out, had launched a pilot project to carry out neonatal screening in two districts to identify children born deaf and had planned to extend the same to all districts under its Vision 2020 plan.

The Tiruchi Government Hospital had trained doctors and para-medical staff, besides good facilities to perform cochlear implant surgeries, he said.

Dr.Palaniappan said the children who had undergone the surgeries would be able to hear and speak like normal children within a year. The children would undergo speech therapy and rehabilitation at the hospital for a year.

Mr.Palanisamy said people with children with deafness at birth could contact the hospital authorities, the District Differently Abled Officer or the district administration to undergo the cochlear implant surgeries at the hospital under the insurance scheme.
