Focus on latest developments in liver, pancreas transplantation

Image

Medical professionals in the city were given an update on liver and pancreas transplantation at a lecture programme organised by the local chapters of Indian Medical Association (IMA) and Association of Physicians of India (API) in collaboration with Apollo Hospitals on Sunday.

Noted surgeons from the Centre for Liver Disease and Transplantation, Apollo Group of Hospitals, Dr. Anand Ramamurthy and Professor Dr. Anil Vaidya informed the audience of the latest progress in surgical procedures and medical criteria, with the help of slide presentations.

Speaking about liver transplants, Dr. Ramamurthy, Senior Consultant, Co-ordinator, (Surgical Gastroenterology), said the regenerative property of the organ has been known for a long time. Transplants could be done for chronic liver failure (defined as progressive destruction of the liver parenchyma leading to fibrosis and cirrhosis), and acute liver failure (marked by the onset of encephalopathy altered mental status, or coagulopathy altered bleeding tendencies), he said, provided the patient fulfilled the requisite criteria.

While a cirrhotic liver is commonly linked to alcohol abuse, Dr. Ramamurthy said that the emerging disease of Non-Alcoholic Steato-Hepatitis (NASH) was predicted to become the second-most common reason for liver transplants. NASH refers to liver inflammation and damage caused by the build-up of fat in the organ.

“With our nation projected to be the diabetes capital of the world, the number of NASH patients is bound to be higher,” Dr. Ramamurthy said. Pancreas transplantation is still in infancy in India, said Dr. Vaidya in his opening comments, with only 10 such operations having been done till date nationwide (four of them by Apollo Hospitals). Technical problems associated with pancreatic transplantation had stopped it from becoming mainstream for a long time, he added.

“Despite this, pancreas transplant is the only cure for diabetes,” said Dr. Vaidya, who is also a leading multi-visceral transplant surgeon associated with Oxford University and has served as a consultant there for 11 years.

Both the speakers emphasised that the success of a transplant procedure depended not just on the fitness of the patient, but also on the work of a large and multi-disciplinary medical team. “Pyscho-social support for transplant patients is important because they undergo a life-changing event, and both patient and family members need to be aware of what is in store for them,” said Dr. Ramamurthy.

World Bank team inspects GH

Image

A World Bank team on Wednesday inspected the health projects being implemented under the Tamil Nadu Health Systems Project in Tiruchi.

The five-member team spent about an hour at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital (MGMGH) here.

The team took stock of the functioning of Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care centre, hospital management system, and so on.

The team members met M.K. Muralidharan, Dean, K.A.P. Viswanatham Government Medical College and about the usage of infrastructure built under the Tamil Nadu Health Systems Project (TNHSP).

They enquired about the field staff on reaching out to the poor and needy patients.

Later, they visited the KAPV Medical College and inspected the facilities set up with the World Bank assistance under the TNHSP.

Civic activists revive demand for setting up AIIMS in Tiruchi

Tiruchi has always received a raw deal, say activists

City qualifies for AIIMS in terms of location as well as connectivity


Coming out strongly against the failure of the government to consider Tiruchi for setting up the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), a section of civic activists have decided to take to the agitation path again to press for the establishment of the institution in the city.

Taking cognisance of “unconfirmed reports” that the AIIMS could be located in Madurai, the Federation of Consumer and Service Organisations held a meeting of its core committee in the city on Saturday and threatened to boycott the Assembly election. The federation members planned to return their Electors Photo Identity Cards (EPIC) to the President in a gesture of protest over the continued apathy of successive governments to their demand. The move comes in the wake of the recent inspection of the five sites by a Central team for setting up the AIIMS in Tamil Nadu. Expressing disappointment that Tiruchi was not among the short-listed sites, the federation pointed out that the civil society in the city had been conducting a series of agitations since 2005 for the cause.

A Joint Action Committee, comprising representatives of political parties, service, consumer, and traders organisations, was formed then to fight for the cause.

Civic activists point out that an announcement on upgrading the Government Headquarters Hospital in the city on a par with AIIMS was made by the Union government as early as 2002. But the project was later shifted to Salem. Subsequently, the city lost out on another proposal.

“It is regrettable that our long struggle has gone unnoticed and the claims of Tiruchi, as an ideal location for setting up the hospital, have been ignored. The city is centrally located and easily accessible for people of various central and southern districts. It has all necessary infrastructure such as good rail, road and air connectivity. Locating the hospital here would benefit lakhs of people. It is shocking that Tiruchi was not included in the list of prospective sites on merit,” said M. Sekaran, president, Federation of Consumer and Service Organisations, who chaired the meeting.

After extensive discussions, the meeting chalked out a plan of action to register the protest of the city residents. The federation members would return their EPIC cards and boycott the forthcoming Assembly election, if their demand was not met. But before going ahead with the protests, the federation would try and meet the AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa to represent their case.

Tiruchi is being neglected in terms of improving rail and air connectivity. Both Union and State governments are ignoring people of this region. Tiruchi is being used only to organise political conferences, the federation said.

Both DMK and AIADMK Govt. had failed to give due important to Tiruchirappalli in upgrading G.H. at par with AIIMS standard in 2005 (the original scheme was highjacked to Salem and another scheme went to Madurai) and setting up AIIMS on 2015..

Our ten years agitations not yield any result.. both parties assured during the election campion but simply ignored.

The Tiruchirappalli Annal Gandhi Memorial Hospital attach with KAP Viswanthan Medical College was upgraded only name sake as a specialty.. But, there is no sufficient doctors, the doctors are not working properly and there is no machine and men..

The Federation of Consumer and Service Organisations along with like minded organizations would meet shortly to decide to surrender the family cards to the President of India or call for boycott forthcoming assembly election considering the Tiruchirappalli district is not deserving to live.

Thoughts and feeling of Mr. M Sekaran (facebook.com/sekaran.m.sundaram), hope all of the Trichy people feel the same

D.M.K. Played all dramas before 10 years & now acting for trichy to get the vote banks.

Because of drama & notorious act of DMK, trichy lost many things like AIIMS hospital, a big software company (forget it's name), TNSTC-trichy bus division, tirupathy express train, jodhpur express train, tea garden express train, service roads from paalpani to thuvakudi, etc.

Whether this dinakaran/DMK can list out atleast one good thing what they have done for Trichy?????

Healthcare centres in Trichy to get a major facelift

Under the National Urban Health Mission (NUHM), the city corporation will carry out development work at healthcare centres across the city at an estimated cost of Rs 4.16 crore.

NUHM aims to improve the healthcare service provided to the urban poor and other disadvantaged sections and provide quality healthcare through a revamped public healthcare system. The process would involve the participation of the community and urban local bodies.

Primary health centres (PHCs) will come up at a cost of Rs 42 lakh each in Edamalaipatti, Ramalinga Nagar south and Woraiyur. At the same time, Kaatur and Thiruverambur PHCs will soon be handed over to the corporation from the existing panchayats, and developmental work will be carried at these centres at a cost of Rs 10 lakh each. Eight urban health posts (UHPs) will get a facelift at a cost of Rs 10 lakh each and another six UHPs would be upgraded at a cost Rs 10 lakh each.

The civic body will seek tender for carrying out several other works, including the renovation of maternity hospital and primary health centres, in various corporation wards at a cost of Rs 3.05 crore. An amount of Rs 1.50 crore will be provided under NUHM, while the rest of the cost will be met from the corporation general fund.

The corporation will also call tenders for work to construct UHPs at a cost of Rs 1.56 crore. Funds worth Rs 1.26 crore will be provided under NULM for the purpose whereas the rest will be taken from the corporation general fund.

Many of the healthcare centres that are not properly maintained will get a facelift and the issue of manpower shortage in the health centres in the city will also be addressed, corporation officials said.
