AMERICAN SINGER CHANGES IRIS COLOUR THROUGH IMPLANT

Image

Toryn Green, former vocalist for rock bands Fuel, Emphatic, For the Taking, and the 2008 lead touring singer for Finnish group Apocalyptica, was operated on by Dr. Shibu Varkey and his team of the Vasan Eye Care Hospital on Tuesday, in a 40-minute procedure under local anaesthesia.

In this surgery, to insert the artificial iris, the surgeon created a “2.8-mm window” in the cornea. Through it, the silicone implant (12.5 mm in diameter) was inserted and placed over the natural iris. The surgery cost between Rs. 2 lakh and Rs. 4 lakh and recovery time was pegged at three days to a week.

“I had worn coloured contact lenses all my life. Because they were prescription, I needed them to see,” Mr. Green told The Hindu on Wednesday. “I just got so used to them being of a certain colour that after I got corrective laser surgery … I was back to my natural colour.”

There was nothing wrong with his hazel brown eyes, the Los Angeles, California-based entertainer added. “But I had developed a whole new personality with the coloured contacts. I always used to see people with grey or blue eyes standing out in a crowd. Being in the music industry and acting, the cameras are always there, and you always want to be the standout.”

“Prosthetic iris implant is done after a detailed eye check where it is ascertained that the procedure is completely safe for the individual,” said Dr. Shibu Varkey.

“The main parameter is the anterior chamber depth (of the eyeball) and endothelial cell counts (on the inner surface of the cornea). If these are in the required level then problems generally don't occur.”

Dr. Varkey added that Mr. Green had recovered immediately after surgery and was able to see clearly in two hours.
“The artificial iris is a silicone implant that is designed to be implanted surgically on top of the natural iris, in a way that allows for free circulation of the intra-ocular fluid in normal eyes so that eye pressure remains normal after surgery,” he said.
Three follow-up checks would be done for the next year, in Los Angeles. Mr. Green has been told to avoid heavy gym workouts until the healing process was complete, in order to keep the eye pressure stable.

The entertainer would be seen in the Hollywood fantasy action film Skate God this year. He is a medical student in bio-psychology and is interested in reconstructive plastic surgery. “I’ve always been fascinated by surgery and I think my artistic side will help me shine in that as well,” he said.

Tiruchi is one of three centres in the world where the iris implant procedure is done. As of now, 180 such operations have been completed in the city, said Dr. Varkey.

KAPV medical college seeks MCI nod for five PG courses

The K.A.P. Viswanatham Government Medical College (KAPVGMC) has sought the Medical Council of India (MCI)’s nod for introducing five Post Graduate courses from the next academic year (2015-16).

The courses for which the medical college applied and created necessary infrastructure are MD (Doctor of Medicine) of Pathology, MD Psychiatry, MD Microbiology, MD Pharmacology, and MD ENT with an intake of two seats each.

M.K. Muralidharan, Dean, K.A.P. Viswanatham Medical College, Tiruchi, told The Hindu that the Directorate of Medical Education (DME) and Dr. MGR. Medical University had accepted the proposal on starting new PG courses. The nod of MCI was needed to start the courses.

Expressing confidence on getting the MCI nod, he said the college had met the basic requirements for starting the PG courses. Moreover, all infrastructure had been set up as per the MCI norms. MCI teams were expected to visit the college soon to inspect the facilities.

Similarly, Mr. Muralidharan said a separate proposal had been sent to the Medical Council of India for increasing the intake of post-graduate courses such as General Medicine, General Surgery, Paediatrics, Anaesthesia, Gynaecology, and Bio-Chemistry. If the nod was obtained, the intake of general medicine would be increased from 4 to 12.

He added that a proposal had been sent to the government for filling 33 super specialist doctors, including cardiologists, neurologists, nephrologists, and anaesthetists for the medical college hospital. The proposal had been approved in principal. It was expected that the vacancies would be filled up shortly.

I also hope, people in this forum or someone appropriate, get the message across to people in the Central govt, to people like Nirmala Sitharaman, Lalitha Kumaramangalam & Pon. Radhakrishnan. The need & the reasons are genuine enough for Trichy to have an AIIMS. I really hope this doesn't slip through us.



You are absolutely right friend, we are in constant touch with Nirmala Sitaraman & Lalitha kumaramangalam, and they assured their best for trichy. But one question repeatedly they are asking us is, what is your AIADMK useless M.P. Kumar is doing??? They repeatedly used the word useless, useless, useless. This shows how much reputation he is having in delhi. By mistake we have chosen kumar, we should have opted for charubala thondaiman.

It will be appropriate for the AIIMS to be in Trichy for all the right reasons. Someone should pass the message to the Ex-CM & get it done. AIIMS should join the list of glorious institutions in Trichy. I hope nobody takes this away from us.

Reading rooms inaugurated in government hospital

Henceforth, attendants and hospital staff at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital (MGMGH) can spend their free time keeping abreast of the current events by reading newspapers, periodicals and books, as two new reading libraries were inaugurated at the hospital on Friday.

Dr S Geethalakshmi, director of medical education (DME), Chennai, threw open the two libraries to the public in a low-key event on Friday afternoon. The rooms earlier housed CT scan equipment and registration room for the scan centre.

Dean of MGMGH, Dr MK Muralitharan said the new libraries were aimed at providing hospital staff and visitors a chance to improve their reading habits. "People can make use of the opportunity to enhance their reading habits. Hospital staff, including doctors, has also been provided the same facility in another room," he said.

The library will be open from 9am to 6pm everyday for the public, the dean said.

The CT scan installed in the room was recently shifted to the super specialty block inside MGMGH to avoid making the patients shuttle between different points, leaving the rooms vacant. So, the spaces were converted into libraries.

The DME suggested that the hospital administration install television sets in some of the wards in the hospital to provide entertainment facility to the patients to refresh their minds.
