What is Heart Failure?

Heart failure, also called Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), means your heart does not pump blood as well as it should. This does not mean your heart has stopped working, but it is not as strong as it used to be and fluid builds up in the lungs and other parts of your body. This can cause shortness of breath, swelling in the legs, feet, and stomach.

Heart failure starts slowly and can get worse over time.

If you feel you may be at the risk of heart failure contact CIMS Hospital and it’s leading and best cardiac surgery team in Ahmedabad and Gujarat. CIMS Hospital is rated the best heart hospital in Ahmedabad Gujarat for a reason!

What is CABG ?

CABG is a surgical procedure in which one or more blocked coronary arteries are bypassed by a blood vessel graft to restore normal blood flow to the heart. These grafts usually come from the patient’s own arteries and veins located in the chest (thoracic), leg (saphenous) or arm (radial). The graft goes around the blocked artery (or arteries) to create new pathways for oxygen-rich blood to flow to the heart.

The goals of the procedure are to relieve symptoms of coronary artery disease (including angina), enable the patient to resume a normal lifestyle and to lower the risk of a heart attack or other heart problems.

At CIMS Hospital, bypass surgery may be performed in combination with other heart surgeries, when necessary, such as valve surgery, aortic aneurysm surgery or surgery to treat atrial fibrillation (an irregular heart beat).

What Is Celiac Disease?

What Is Celiac Disease?

Celiac disease is referred to a digestive disorder which is triggered by eating the food containing gluten and causes damage to the small intestine. Gluten is a form of protein that is naturally present in wheat, barley, and rye. Food items such as bread, pasta, cookies, and cakes contain gluten and certain pre-packaged foods, certain lip balms/lipsticks, hair and skin products, toothpastes, nutrient supplements, and rarely certain medicines contain gluten.

Celiac disease is considered to be a serious disease which can cause long-lasting digestive problems while preventing the nutrient absorption. It can also affect the other organs besides the intestines.  It is different from the gluten sensitivity, wheat intolerance or wheat allergy. If you have gluten sensitivity, you may have symptoms similar to those of celiac diseases, such as abdominal pain and tiredness. Unlike celiac disease, gluten sensitivity does not damage the small intestine.

Urogynaecology And Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery

Urogynaecology And Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery

The problems with the laxity of pelvic muscles can be very distressing to a woman.  Childbirth, constipation, obesity, respiratory problems and other conditions can weaken the pelvic muscles. In advanced cases, the upper section of the vagina or portions of the pelvic area drops into the vaginal canal. Too often, women don’t seek medical care because they are embarrassed, or don’t realize treatments can help.

The Urogynaecology Department at CIMS offers cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment options for women with complex pelvic floor disorders. Depending on your condition, a variety of effective options are available, ranging from healthy lifestyle changes and medications to nonsurgical techniques. The center offers a wide range of state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic procedures as well as consultation services for the following –

  • Urinary frequency & urgency
  • Recurrent urinary tract infections
  • Overactive bladder syndromes
  • Pelvic organ prolapse (dropped bladder, vagina, uterus or rectum),
  • Vaginal Fistulas, diverticula, and vaginal agenesis

How does VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect) occur?

How does VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect) occur?

A VSD is the most common heart defect present at birth. It often occurs as a single defect with no known cause but is also found in children with multiple problems.

About one in three children with a heart abnormality discovered at birth has a VSD. VSDs account for one in five heart abnormalities found during childhood and for one in 10 found in adults.

A VSD may occur when a heart attack weakens the muscle of the septum. Blood pressure in the left ventricle breaks opens the weakened septum, pushing blood into the right ventricle through the new opening. Rarely, trauma to the heart may cause a VSD.

What is morbid obesity?

What is Morbid Obesity?

Morbid obesity is a disease of excess weight which is chronic and lifelong. Excessive fat storage results into morbid obesity which increases the BMI (Body Mass Index) beyond 35.

What is Body Mass Index (BMI)?

BMI or Body Mass Index is a measure of calculating a person’s excess weight. It is calculated by the following formula:

BMI = Weight (in Kilograms)/ Height (in Meters)2

Western Asian
Average built 21-25 18-22.5
Overweight 25-30 22.5-27.5
Obese 30-40 27.5-37.5
Morbidly obese <40 <37.5

How does morbid obesity differ from being overweight/obese?

  • Being overweight and obese are reversible conditions that can be treated by medical management whereas morbid obesity requires surgical intervention.
  • The body mechanisms that control a person’s weight are set in such a manner in the morbidly obese patient that they gain weight easily.
  • These patients find it difficult to lose weight and even more difficult to sustain.

Stroke

Stroke

All small or big recovery needs time and patience…!!

Stroke is also known as Brain Attack. Stroke means when a person may die due to lack of oxygen or caused by the blockage of blood flow or damage in any artery of the brain.  Lack of oxygen gives rise to death of brain cells. Thus affected area cannot work properly which might result in an inability to move limbs on one or more side of the body, inability to understand, speech problems, or an inability to see one or more side of the visual area. The risks for Brain Stroke are High blood pressure, eating tobacco, smoking, obesity, etc.

Brain Stroke is of two types:

  1. Ischemic Stroke: Ischemic clots are those when clots block the blood flow to the brain cells. These clots can form anywhere in brain’s blood vessels that lead to the brain.
  2. Hemorrhagic stroke: Hemorrhagic Strokes are those when a blood vessel in the brain breaks or ruptures. The result is blood seeping into the brain tissue, causing damage to brain cells.
