Hospital performs successful hand reconstructive surgery

A city-based hospital has successfully performed a hand reconstructive surgery on a person who had his hand totally amputated in an assault.

According to D.Senguttuvan, Executive Director, Kauvery Hospital, the 42-year-old farmer came to the hospital about eight precious hours after the incident with his right hand literally hanging by a thread of skin. He was immediately taken to the operation theatre, where a team led by S.Skanda, Consultant-In-Charge, Hand and Microsurgery Unit, and Balaji, anaesthesiologist, performed the surgery. After a nearly 8-hour-long surgery, the almost severed hand was successfully reattached along with all the tendons and nerves.

Mr.Skanda said the intricate surgery involved the connection of numerous structures, including bones, tendons, nerves, blood vessels and skin.

The review of the patient undertaken after three weeks of surgery had shown remarkable improvement. The patient was able to feel the movement of his hand and fingers.

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, he said that very few centres in the country had the infrastructure and expertise to perform such difficult surgeries.

T.Krishnamurthy, Head, Department of Plastic Surgery, Kauvery Hospital, said that the hospital has been successfully performing such surgeries.

A.Subramaniayan, Senior Medical Administrator, said the hospital had also done a thumb replant surgery a few days ago.

Minister claims special block at Government Hospital functioning

TRICHY : Even as public in the district are ruing over the lack of facilities and the non-functionality of the Rs 100 crore multi-specialty block at the Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Government Hospital, state health minister Dr C Basker on Friday claimed that the new block had indeed commenced functioning and the process is on to bring some equipment to the specialty block.

Speaking to TOI during his visit to the MGMGH, the health minister said, "The building is functioning in a full-fledged manner. As of now, the hospital doctors did not raise any issue about its functioning. However, there is a misconception that the super-specialty block is yet to commence operations though it became operational."

Though then chief minister J Jayalalithaa inaugurated the multi-specialty block on February 21 without the Rs 45 crore medical equipment that was originally announced, it was lying vacant till June this year due to lack of equipment and manpower. The patients in the old block were shifted to the new block on June 29 ahead of Jayalalithaa's official visit to Srirangam to participate in a government programme. The hospital administration a few months ago said the process was on to get the Rs 45 crore medical equipment, but the it was yet to arrive. This is evident whenever anyone visits the block.

But Dr Basker insisted that the necessary medical equipment for the multi-specialty hospital was in place. "A multi-specialty hospital requires MRI and CT scan which are most essential. An MRI is already placed in the block. An existing CT scan will be shifted to the super-specialty block shortly. With the equipment, the super-specialty block can function," he told TOI in the presence of medical superintendent Dr Kanagaraj who remained tight-lipped.

There was a constant lamentation from the staff about the lack of manpower in the super-specialty block. The care provided to the patients was not satisfactory due to this. There was a demand from the staff that new posts for doctors, nurses and other staff should be created and appointments made. One of the former deans had sent a proposal to the government demanding 150 doctors and more than 100 nursing, sanitary, hospital staff for the multi-specialty block. Unfortunately, the appointments were not made for the smooth functioning of the block.

Interestingly, the health minister said "There will be no creation of vacancy for the multi-specialty block but we will fill the sanctioned strength." However, he said that he would conduct a review meeting in this issue.

In fact, the new block has nine super-specialty departments - orthopaedics, neurosurgery, neurology, nephrology, urology, cardiology, cardiothoracic, plastic surgery and surgical gastroenterology. However, the specialised doctors to provide specialty treatment are not appointed here and the patients got general treatment at the specialty block.

Meanwhile, doctors at the hospital on Friday demanded the health minister to construct a new block for the general and surgery department. The minister discussed the matter with the PWD officials to check the feasibility for a new block.

Pre-release copies of the Tamil version of ‘How to protect your heart,’ was released at a function held here on Friday to mark the observance of World Heart Day,

Sampoorna Krishnan, senior doctor, released the book which aims to sensitise masses to the importance of taking preventive measures to check heart diseases.

Speaking on the occasion, Senthil Kumar Nallusamy, Chief Cardiologist, Apollo Hospital, who authored the book, spoke on various types of cardiac problems and their treatment .

A little effort towards prevention would go a long way in checking the incidence of the disease, he said, pointing out that lack of awareness on preventive measures was a major bottleneck. The book written in simple language is in question-answer format to help readers easily understand it.

The English version of the book was released by Pranab Mukherjee, President of India, a couple of years ago. Sampoorna Krishnan, said that the book, by virtue of its simple but impressive style, would be patient-friendly, particularly for persons with cardiac ailment.

Singapore health sector targets TN - A team of officials from Singapore visited Trichy

TRICHY: A team of officials from Singapore visited the Mahatma Gandhi memorial government hospital (MGMGH) in Trichy on Monday to look at the feasibility of entering into a tie-up with the medical sector in Tamil Nadu and to share knowledge in bringing down the maternal mortality rate (MMR) and infant mortality rate (IMR) in the state.

The five-member team from Singapore International Foundation, SingHealth hospital and K K Women's and Children's Hospital in Singapore met the doctors and officials at the obstetrics and gynaecology as well as the paediatrics departments here. The team visited the Comprehensive Emergency Obstetric and Newborn Care (CEmONC) centre and interacted with the patients. They also spoke to some of the staff and inquired about how the patients are being taken care of. The visit was followed by a meeting with Dr Parimaladevi, head of the department of obstetrics and gynaecology for nearly an hour to discuss about the areas which need expertise from the Singapore health sector.

"The purpose is to look for areas of collaboration between the Singapore International Foundation, SingHealth Hospital, KK Women's and Children's Hospital and the health department in Tamil Nadu in areas of maternal and child health. In this region, there is an interest in improving maternal and child health that mothers should not die during delivery and they should look after the babies," said Annette, who headed the team.

The medical experts from Singapore chose Trichy, Kancheepuram and few other areas in Tamil Nadu for their assessment. "We spoke to the Tamil Nadu health secretary and explained to him about our visit to some parts of the state to assess the quality of the health sector so that we can decide in which area we need to share our experience with each other," said Margaret, one of the members in the team.

She also said the health sector in Singapore brought down the MMR and IMR significantly. "In this visit, we are particularly looking at sharing ideas and knowledge. In Singapore, we managed to bring down the IMR rate significantly to 1/1000 live births while in India the rate is 16/1000. We can address this gap by providing training about certain practices to the doctors and nurses," said Margaret.

Sources said that MGMGH recorded 40 MMR in 2012 and 32 MMR in 2013.

The next step for collaboration between the two is expected to be taken later after discussion with the government.

திருச்சி அப்போலோ மருத்துவமனையில் ஓராண்டுக்குள் 320 மெகா அறுவை சிகிச்சைகள்

திருச்சி அப்போலோ மருத்துவமனை தொடங்கிய ஓராண்டுக்குள் 320 மெகா அறுவை சிகிச்சைகள் மேற்கொண்டு சாதனை படைக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது. இதில் முதலமைச்சர் காப்பீட்டுத் திட்டத்தின் கீழ் செய்யப்பட்ட பைபாஸ் அறுவைச் சிகிச்சைகள் 120 அறுவை சிகிச்சைகள் வெற்றிகரமாக முடிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளன. என்றனர் அதன் தலைமை மருத்துவ அறுவை சிகிச்சை நிபுணர் டி. செந்தில்குமார், மற்றும் மருத்துவ சிகிச்சை நிபுணர் என். செந்தில்குமார் ஆகியோர்.

இது குறித்து அவர்கள் திருச்சியில் செய்தியாளர்களிடம் கூறியது:

கடந்தாண்டு தமிழக முதலமைச்சரால் காணொளி காட்சி மூலம் தொடங்கப்பட்ட திருச்சி அப்போலோ மருத்துமனை ஓராண்டு முடிவதற்குள்ளேயே பல்வேறு சாதனைகளை படைத்துள்ளது. திருச்சியில் உள்ள பிற மருத்துவமனைகளை ஒப்பிடும்போது அவற்றைவிட குறைந்த செலவில் சர்வதேச தரத்துக்கு நிகரான மருத்துவ சேவையை அளித்து வருகின்றது.

தொடங்கிய ஓராண்டுக்குள் 190 இருதய அறுவை சிகிச்சை உள்ளிட்ட 320 அறுவைச் சிகிச்சைகளை மேற்கொண்டுள்ளோம். இதில் நவீன தொழில் நுட்பத்தில் இருதய துடிப்பை நிறுத்தாமலேயே அறுவை சிகிச்சை மேற்கொள்ளும் முறை கையாளப்படுவதால் நோயாளி எளிதாகவும் விரைவாகவும் குணமடைகின்றார். குறிப்பாக குழந்தைகளுக்கான 24 மணி நேர சிறப்பு இருதய சிகிச்சை பிரிவு சென்னைக்கு அடுத்தபடியாக திருச்சி மண்டலத்திலேயே அப்போலோவில்தான் உள்ளது.

எங்களிடம் மேற்கொள்ளப்படும் முதல்வர் காப்பீட்டு திட்ட சிகிச்சைகளுக்கு நோயாளிகளிடமிருந்து ஒரு ரூபாய் கூட பெறாமல் அவர்களுக்கும், கட்டணம் செலுத்தும் நோயளிகளைப்போலவே தரமான சிகிச்சை அளிக்கப்பட்டு வருகிறது. விரைவில் அகில இந்திய அளவிலான மருத்துவ தரச்சான்று பெறப்போகும் மருத்துவமனை அப்போலோ. இந்த சிறப்பிடத்தை பெற இங்கு பணியாற்றும் அனைத்துத் துறைகளைச் சேர்ந்த மருத்துவ குழுவினரின் முழு ஒத்துழைப்புதான் காரணம் என்றார்.

பேட்டியின்போது மருத்துவக்குழுவைச் சேர்ந்த மருத்துவர்கள், பிரேமாகுகா, ரோகிணி தர், காதர் சாகிப், சரவணன், பிரவின்குமார், இருதய சிகிச்சை நிபுணர் சென்னியப்பன் உள்ளிட்ட உள்ளிட்ட பலரும் பங்கேற்றனர்.

IPO-bound Aster strikes deals for B'lore, Hyderabad foray

India's third largest hospital chain Aster DM Healthcare has led a business acquisition of Cauvery Medical Center (CMC), in Bangalore, which is promoted by a group of non-resident Indians.

This marks Aster's entry into Bangalore, the home turf of two prominent home-grown hospital chains, Ranjan Pai-led Manipal Hospitals and Dr Devi Shetty's Narayana Hrudyalaya.

Kochi-based Aster, which is planning a Rs 1,500 crore initial public offer early next year, has been shoring up its presence in southern and western India through acquisitions and brownfield expansion.

Cauvery Medical, operating 75 beds currently, will be re-branded as Aster Bangalore and expanded to a 400 bed hospital, said Dr Azad Moopen, chairman and MD of Aster DM Healthcare. Aster has struck a long-term management contract deal with CMC's founders to run the hospital, he added.

Last month, Aster acquired 51% stake in Hyderabad-based Prime Hospitals for about Rs 75 crore, providing it with a 200-bed facility in the city. The company has also offered to buy stake in Trichy-based Kaveri Medical Centre, which operates multiple healthcare assets in Tamil Nadu.

10 new tobacco cessation clinics on anvil for TN

Tamil Nadu may soon get ten new tobacco cessation clinics at district-level hospitals in places including Coimbatore, Madurai, Tiruchi, Salem and Dindigul.

These clinics will have a doctor and a staff nurse, and offer both counselling and pharmacological options to those who are attempting to stop tobacco use.

“At present, we have about 80 such clinics across the State, but they only offer counselling. We want to bring in other options too, in order to help people quit,” said State tobacco control officer P. Vadivelan.

A proposal for the setting up of these clinics has been sent to the Central government and once sanction is given, work will begin on setting them up, he said.
