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.

What is Neurology?

Neurology is the specialist branch of Medicine that deals with the nervous system – the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and muscles. The special senses of smell, vision, hearing, and balance also often involve neurologists usually overlapping with ophthalmologists (eye specialists), and Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) surgeons.

CIMS neurology is one of the finest in the region led by highly qualified doctors and backed by state-of-the-art clinical neurophysiology lab & Neuroradiology. CIMS Critical care unit is perfectly equipped to handle all neurological emergencies such as brain attack (stroke), etc. round the clock.

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.

Critical Care

BLOOD CANCER

BLOOD CANCER

We are only given today and never promised Tomorrow..!!!

Blood Cancer is a type of a Cancer which starts in the Bone where the Blood is produced. We have three types of Cells i.e. Red Blood Cells, White Blood Cells and Platelets. Blood Cancer starts due to uncontrolled growth of abnormal blood cells. This prevents the role or functions that fight against the infection or bacteria.

There are three types of Blood Cancer:

Leukemia is a type of Blood Cancer related to White Blood Cells wherein the infection blocks up the Bone Marrow thus prohibiting production of new red blood cells and platelets which plays an important role in making of healthy blood.

Lymphoma is a type of Blood Cancer which affects the lymphatic system, which helps to protect the body from infectious disease and is an important part of the immune system. Lymphocytes live longer, multiply and collect in your lymph nodes and other tissues resulting blocks in lymph fluids.

Myeloma is a type of Blood Cancer of plasma cells. Plasma Cells are found in the bone marrow which produces antibodies that fight against the infections. In Myeloma it produces abnormal cells which weaken our immune system and stops the production of Cells.

Tit Bits of Refractory hypoxemia & Journey of ventilator care

 

Much progress has been made in the treatment of neonatal respiratory failure over the past few decades. In particular, antenatal steroids and exogenous surfactant replacement have decreased neonatal mortality and morbidity in premature infants(2), (3), (4). However, lung injury and pulmonary morbidities secondary to mechanical ventilation remain an ongoing problem in the care of premature infants and refractory hypoxemia in infants. Of utmost concern, chronic lung disease (CLD) develops in up to one third of preterm infants who have respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) who receive positive pressure mechanical ventilation HFOV-data suggest that early use of high-frequency ventilation, compared with conventional ventilation; high-frequency oscillatory ventilation is not associated with a poorer neuromotor outcome, rather in few studies early use rather than rescue use has been proven to be having less neuromotor insult at 2 years follow up(1).

There are many randomized control trials available now in today’s era of evidence based medicine, which says improved gas exchange and less treatment failure with HFOV, both in the patients initially allocated to HFOV as a primary mode and in those that failed conventional CMV and crossed over to HFOV too. There was no difference in the incidence of chronic lung disease, IVH, or death between the HFOV & CMV but hospital stay and ICU stay was markedly reduced in HFOV Group(5). Cases like PPHN, air leak syndrome and Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) claim much better results and response with HFOV when used alone or with Nitric oxide therapy in selected scenarios.

 

In all of above mentioned 4 cases; a considerable benefit of capillary ABG Program was utilized. Capillary ABG for neonates is a well proven method in all developed countries as method of choice in doing ABG is these tiny babies avoiding multiple peripheral arterial pricks. Its unique feature of full panel ABG analysis with lactate and electrolytes in just 60 micro L blood, requiring no additional cost gives a relief to clinician as well as Neonate. Sooner As a next step CIMS kids-Department of pediatric and neonatal critical care is going to support such kind of above said neonates and infants with Nitric oxide therapy in near future.

A recent milestone achieved by CIMS Cancer Center in Radiotherapy is the AERB approval to use FFF (Flattening Filter- Free) for clinical use. By removing the flattening filter from the linear accelerator, greater dose rate can be achieved due to the physiologic property of flat beam. Advanced treatment like SRS (Stereotactic Radio Surgery) SRT (Stereotactic Radio Therapy) and SBRT (Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy for Lungs and Prostate) with use of state of art planning system can now be used to modulate non-flat, high dose rate beams to achieve highly conformal dose distributions with a reduced treatment time.

First time in India Heart Valve replacement on Beating heart — Technological Breakthrough.

April 10, 2015
First time in India Heart Valve replacement on Beating heart — Technological Breakthrough.

At CIMS hospital Ahmedabad a breakthrough technological surgery was performed for the first time in India on an 82 year old gentleman who had stenosis of one of the valve with heart failure, bad lungs , multiple blocks in the peripheral arteries and mild kidney disease . He had a past history of 2 times hospitalisation for heart failure symptoms in last 3 months . This heart failure was because of stenosed Heart Valve.

Only solution or treatment for this patient was to replace the valve. For valve replacement a patient has to undergo open heart surgery, wherein the heart is stopped, opened, the valve is replaced and then the heart is restarted. During this operative time, the patient is supported on Heart Lung machine.

Because of his age, poor heart function , bad lungs , and multiple blocks in arteries, it was very high risk case for open heart surgery. For such cases, a technological advanced treatment TAVI ( Trans catheter Aortic Valve Implantation) is now possible. This hybrid procedure , wherein Valve Replacement is done on beating heart ( without stopping the heart) utilised the combined skills of a heart surgeon and a Cardiologist . Procedure is done in the same way an Angioplasty is done. This procedure was successfully executed by the team of doctors of CIMS hospital: Dr Dhiren Shah (Cardiac Surgeon) Dr Milan Chag (Cardiologist), Dr Chintan Seth , Dr Hiren Dholakia ( Cardiac Anasthetist).

In today’s technology driven-era and with good infrastructure hospitals, high risk patient and geriatric patients can get treatment and can get new lease of life.

Rare case of cardiac surgery in pregnancy with twins

April 3, 2015
A young female, first pregnancy with twins was a great joy for the family. However, it turned into a nightmare when sudden onset fever and breathlessness led to diagnosis of hole in heart (VSD) and main artery (aorta) blood leaking in RT chamber of heart (RSOV).
Semiurgent, highrisk surgery was planned during 5th month after counselling from cardiologist.
Multidisciplinary team of cardiac surgeon (paediatric), cardiac anaesthesiologist, gyenecologist, perfusionist and nursing staff made this operation successful.
Vigilant advance monitoring of mother and baby, haemodynamic monitoring in mother, surgical expertise and expert postop care is the key to this success.
Mother & baby both are well.
