Yemen national undergoes liver transplantation in Tiruchi

Image

A Tiruchi-based hospital has performed a liver transplant surgery on a Yemen patient.

The complex surgery was claimed to be done successfully a few days ago. Mansoor Hasan Mohammed (40), who was suffering from cirrhosis of liver because of haemochromatosis (a condition due to accumulation of iron in liver) for more than 10 years, was operated upon by a team led by G. Rajarathinam, liver transplant surgeon, at the Cethar Hospital in Tiruchi.

The patient is said to be doing well and has not come across any notable complication during the post-operative period. The liver was donated by his younger brother Nashwan Hassan Mohammed, a 30-year-old taxi driver in Yemen.

Life for Mr. Mansoor came to a standstill when he was told that his liver ailment had reached an advance stage. When he was badly in need of liver, either from a brain dead person or from a living donor, his brother Nashwan readily came forward to donate half of his liver.

Since his liver was found suitable for Mansoor, the doctors removed the right half of liver of Nashwan through a surgery and transplanted it in the body of Mansoor.

“I was hopeless when the liver disease reached an advance stage. Now, I have got a new lease of life with my younger brother’s liver and the good work of the medical team,” said Mansoor, who is recuperating.

Mr. Rajarathinam, Director of the hospital, said both the donor and recipient had recovered quickly and they were about to be discharged. The complex surgery was possible because of the excellent cooperation of Mansoor’s family and team work of doctors and paramedical staff, he said.

More and more donors register at government hospital blood bank

Image

The number of voluntary blood donors at the blood bank at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital has been on the rise in the last two years, indicating the growing awareness among the masses about the significance of the donation, said D. Saminathan, vice-principal, K.A.P. Viswanatham Government Medical College and Hospital.

Speaking after releasing the supplementary of the blood donors’ directory brought out by the NCC (Air wing) of National College here on Wednesday, Dr. Saminathan said 9,426 units had been collected in 2014 against 8,435 units the previous year.

In December 2014, 216 units were collected at the blood bank. The bank had been catering to the needs of blood at various government hospitals located at Kuzhumani, Kattuputhur, Thuraiyur, Thathaiengarpet, Uppliyapuram, Lalgudi, Inampuliyur, Musiri, and so on. In December, 161 units had been despatched to the needy hospitals.

Explaining the importance of blood donation, Dr. Saminathan called upon the youths to donate blood. The habit of blood donation imposed a sense of discipline among donors as they did not consume alcohol.

Group Captain N. Thinakaran, Commanding Officer, 3 (TN) Air Sqn (Tech) NCC, who received the first copy of the directory, said volunteers derived pleasure through their service to the needy at a critical time.

Flt. Lt. R. Sundhararaman said the directory comprised names of 921 students, with a maximum of 308 volunteers for “O positive” group, followed by 288 for “B positive”. One student was available each for “A1 negative”, “A2 negative”, and “B1 positive” groups.

K. Anbarasu, principal of the college, offered felicitations.

Trichy hospital gets infra development funds

The super-speciality and trauma care block of the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital (MGMGH) here is set to receive medical equipment worth Rs 22 crore after the state government sanctioned more than half of the allotted funds.

The block was inaugurated almost a year ago, but it lacked equipment. Out of the total allotted funds of Rs 35 crore, Rs 21, 78, 66,400 was sanctioned for buying equipment.

"The director of medical education (DME) will deposit the amount to the personal deposit account of the Tamil Nadu medical service corporation (TNMSC). The fund will be utilised to equip the super-specialty hospital with the latest equipment," Dr P Karkuzhali, dean of MGMGH, told reporters here on Tuesday.

"The purchase of equipment will be completed in a phased manner, and it would take a couple of months to complete the process. The rest of the amount for the equipment will be sanctioned later," she added.

The six-storey super specialty block was one of the major projects under former chief minister J Jayalalithaa. However, the much-needed hospital was unable to serve the patients due to lack of equipment.

Interestingly, the fund for equipment was brought down to Rs 35 crore from the previously allotted amount of Rs 45 crore, after the cost of construction of the building escalated to Rs 65 crore from the estimated Rs 55 crore.

Specialty departments like neurosurgery, neurology, cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, medical gastroenterology, surgical gastroenterology, pediatric surgery, plastic surgery, urology, nephrology, medical oncology and surgical oncology will get essential medical equipment. Besides these, anesthesia, radiology, pathology, biochemistry, microbiology, blood bank, telemedicine, medical education, modular operation theatre (trauma block) and steam laundry departments will also be equipped.

Anaesthesia department will receive equipment worth Rs 3.98 crore, the highest, while urology will receive Rs 2.98 crore. In addition, four aneasthesia work stations will be supplied. A modular operation theatre (OT) in the trauma block will receive equipment worth Rs 1.50 crore. The block has six OTs, but at present, only one is functional. The dean said the rest of the OTs would start functioning soon.

Govt med college to get high-end lab

TRICHY: The department of health research (DHR) of ministry of health and family welfare has chosen KAP Viswanatham government medical college (KAPVGMC) here to set up a viral research and diagnostic laboratory (VRDL). To be built at an estimated cost of Rs 2 crore, the lab is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities that can reportedly diagnose various types of viral diseases, including Ebola.

The approval for setting-up the higher level laboratory was obtained after Dr Sridharan Gopalan, former scientist, clinical virologist and a senior expert at Indian council for medical research (ICMR), inspected the hospital facilities on Thursday.

"KAPVGMC has been identified for setting up the high-end laboratory. The proposed lab will become functional soon, and the process is already underway. The fund for the project will be shared by both the central and state governments on 75:25 ratio," Dean Dr P Karkuzhali told the reporters on Friday.

As a part of increasing the viral diagnostic capabilities of existing laboratories in the country through its scheme of 'establishing a network of laboratories for managing epidemics and natural calamities', DHR has already set up a VRDL in Theni government medical college. KAPVGMC will be the second medical college hospital to get the facility in Tamil Nadu.

Biosafety level-2 (BSL-2) laboratory in medical college hospitals will be equipped to carry out serology for viruses and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for molecular diagnosis of viral diseases.

"The new lab will be used to diagnose viral diseases such as dengue, Japanese encephalitis, measles, rabies, swine flu, hepatitis C and HIV in children. The cost of monitoring techniques is expensive outside and VRDL will be useful for the poor people to get the diagnosis free of cost. Ebola can also be diagnosed with the new facility," said Dr S Dhanapaul, head of the department of microbiology, KAPGMC.

He also said that post-graduate students from all disciplines of KAPVGMC can do their dissertations on the facility.

A medical officer, a technician and a worker will be appointed for the lab.

Dr Karkuzhali said that KAPVGMC has sent a proposal to the government seeking approval to start new post-graduate courses in anatomy, physiology, psychology, microbiology, pharmacology and pathology. Currently, the college offers courses in medicine, surgery, anesthesia, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and bio-chemistry.

Besides VRDL, the college has also begun measures to acquire approval for a central government-funded multi discipline research unit (MDRU) at a cost of Rs 5 crore, said the dean.
