Placenta Previa condition successfully treated by Team Chandan

Placenta Previa is a condition occurring to many women during their pregnancies. Let’s understand the placenta previa condition, its causes, symptoms, and dos & don’ts. The structure of placenta creates inside your uterus during pregnancy, giving oxygen also the nutrition and expelling waste from your baby. The placenta attaches with your baby through the umbilical cord. In many pregnancies, the placenta connects at the top or side of the uterus. Placenta previa occurs when a baby’s placenta partially or covers the mother’s cervix, which is the outlet for the uterus. Placenta previa condition causes severe bleeding during pregnancy and delivery.

Your doctor will suggest keeping away from exercises that may cause contractions, including having intercourse, douching, utilizing tampons, or participating in exercises that can build your danger of dying, for example, running, jumping, and squatting. You’ll require a C-section to deliver your baby if the placenta previa doesn’t resolve. The vaginal red bleeding without agony during the second half of pregnancy is the major indication of placenta previa. A few ladies likewise have contractions. In numerous cases, women diagnosed with placenta previa from the very starting of their pregnancies, it could be resolved. In case, the bleeding is becoming severe, look for medical emergency care. The accurate reason for placenta previa is still unclear.

The factors responsible for placenta previa is common among the ladies who have had a baby, have scars on the uterus, (for example, the past medical procedure, including cesarean delivery, removal of uterine fibroid, and dilation and curettage), had placenta previa with a past pregnancy, are carrying more than one embryo, are at age of 35 or more, are of a race other than white, smoke and use cocaine.

Most doctors suggest women with Placenta Previa not to travel and keep away from pelvic tests. Be that as it may, the accompanying can increase your risk factor, in case, you are 35 years old with multiple pregnancies and have undergone any surgical procedure of uterine specifically in any case of incision type.

Now with a full understanding of the condition, you might be able to comprehend the complications in pregnant women with placenta previa occurs. At Chandan hospital, we encountered a similar case of placenta previa. However, it was more complicated as the woman (name cannot be revealed due to privacy issues) came in with full-term pregnancy referred by another hospital and with a history of bleeding in pregnancy. Normal delivery was out of the question considering her condition. Even caesarian was of high risk due to the heavy bleeding. Assessing her condition, if the bleeding went out of control could lead to multiple blood transfusions or removal of the uterus altogether as there was a possible life threat due to bleeding.

This was for the first time in Uttar Pradesh that this procedure was executed by Dr Saba-e-Firdaus (gynaecologist) & Dr Rohit Agarwal (interventional radiologist) of Team Chandan. They planned the operation cautiously as Dr Rohit performed uterine artery balloon catheterization which was inflated after the deliverance of the baby. Though this way blood supply to the uterus was temporarily blocked and time was provided to control the bleeding. The balloon was deflated and removed after the same. This way the case was successfully handled with normal blood as there was no requirement to transfuse blood. The case was successfully managed by both doctors. The patient left the Chandan hospital on the third day in a healthy condition and a healthy baby. To overcome such a challenge was a humongous task in itself as the life of both the baby and the mother was at high risk if at any time to bleeding could not be controlled. The doctors righteously managed the whole case exercising every precaution they could have been possible.

Even Minor Breathing Issues Should Never Be Ignored

A case of critical Dyspnea of Mrs Mithelesh Pal, a 50-year-old woman who was operated to relieve from the excruciating struggle to breathe was successfully handled by Chandan Hospital team. Her breathing issue began about a month ago and with time it was becoming very unbearable for her. When she consulted Dr Vishal Srivastava, Chief Consultant and Dr Shraddha, Sr. Consultant,Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, Chandan Hospital, she got to know about her condition of Dyspnea. In this condition shortness of breath can vary from mild and brief to severe and long-lasting. Dyspnea patients, in general, suffer from difficulty in breathing, also it is at times termed as air hunger.

Her symptoms were of a typical Dyspnea patient such as coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest, laboured breathing, shortness of breath after exertion or due to a medical condition, heart palpitations, feeling smothered or suffocated as a result of breathing difficulties and rapid and shallow breathing. After a few tests it was diagnosed that she had Pyopneumothorax with bronchopleural fistula (BPF) in her left lung making her situation grave. Bronchopleural fistula is an unusual passageway or a sinus tract that emerges between the huge airways in the lungs. It is a grave complexity usually caused through lung cancer surgery but most times it can also occur due to radiation, infection or after chemotherapy.Doctor Vishal & doctor Shraddha without a delay advised for the patients to get admitted on the same day and suggested to go for decortication of the left lung with the closure of BPF (bronchopleural fistula) for instant relief.

Decortication is a procedure through which a restrictive layer (of fibrous tissue) is removed surgically overlying chest wall, lung, and diaphragm. Its basic purpose is to eliminate the layer permitting the lung reexpansion. After the removal of the peel, the compliance returns to the chest wall. The symptoms of patients will rapidly improve after the removal. The lung functions normally by a subsequent deflation and expansion.

Mrs Mithelesh was operated the next day after the consultation to relieve her of the ordeal she was suffering from. The operation was successful, and she was relieved within three days after the surgery with visible improvements in her health.

I was relieved when the doctors were able to diagnose the right reason for the distress caused. I went through the surgery as per the medical advice. It turned out to be the right decision as after a day of the surgery I started feeling fine as there was not so much issue in breathing. Everybody at Chandan Hospital was very helpful and caring.

In the past twenty-five years, you can observe the rapid rise of heart diseases cases in India which has increased by fifty per cent.

CAD is among the commonly found heart conditions in India among adults. It can be understood as coronary artery disease and is caused due to the coronary arteries getting narrow restricting the flow of oxygen and blood to the heart. The process involved in the narrowing of the coronary arteries is known as atherosclerosis. The process happens when there is a build-up of cholesterol, fat, and other substances in the coronary arteries. The build-up is referred to as plaque which causes irritation and scarring in the arteries also making them thick and hard. This is a basic understanding of CAD condition now let’s explore what distress a patient goes through. Atherosclerosis restricts the passage of blood limiting its reach to heart muscles. Sadly, it is often detected in people when it is advanced and one of the symptoms would be angina (chest pain) or a heart attack. The reasons that can trigger this condition can due to family medical history, smoking, your age, unhealthy diet, a low level of physical activity and many other reasons. Your lifestyle choice of unhealthy living can also trigger this condition.
