Large ASD Closure with PAH Performed Successfully at Chandan Hospital

First, let’s understand the ASD condition as it is one of the commonly found congenital heart diseases in adults. ASD is short for Atrial Septal Defect and the most widespread form of treatment accepted throughout the world is transcatheter closure. However, patients with Atrial Septal Defect with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) have a critical condition. To treat them, you need to analyze closely the exact condition of the patient. In recent time, Doctor Vishal Srivastava of Chandan Hospital looked into the similar heart condition of a patient Noor Jahan.  

She was suffering from large OS-ASD since her birth with PAH. This heart condition was taking a high toll on her health as she has a lean body structure with a growing condition of Dyspnea. Dyspnea is a condition in which a person has to fight for breath or has shortness of breath. It is also said to be a condition of air hunger. She was lucky to have it got diagnosed at an optimum time to get it treated as this condition is not easily detected in most times. You can understand given her heart condition of large ASD with PAH and Dyspnea it was becoming serious. Her body was going through a great ordeal to survive it. 

When Dr Vishal Srivastava first checked her condition and after a series of tests diagnosed her heart condition of large ASD with PAH also Dyspnea on exertion associated with orthopnea and palpitation. He briefed her so she understands her exact condition that usually these defects are there from birth and its symptoms increases over time also that he can successfully treat it. He gave her the answer she was looking for as her condition was deteriorating at a faster rate. It was a challenge that he took along with team Chandan to treat her successfully and lead her down a path of a healthy life. The patient was soon operated by the popular treatment of bypass (CABG) surgery. After a day of the surgery, she was extubated and sent to ICU for extensive care. Afterwards, after proper care, she was discharged in a healthy state on the seventh day of the surgery.

It might be her journey she completed with the expert help of Team Chandan. As earlier mentioned, it is one of the most commonly found conditions of the heart and many people are still suffering trying to find the right healthcare facility to get it treated. We are proud to be a super-specialist hospital in Lucknow providing you with almost every facility, technology and medical expertise available at your disposal.

Doctors Comments: The patient was very thin built and low weight. She has also had Dyspnea on exertion associated with orthopnea and palpitation. Normally these types of defects are present from birth and symptoms slowly increasing, but this can be treated in later stages as well. The patient came to us in OPD for consultation. Seeing her reports and condition team Chandan Hospital took this challenge. Because of our efficient and dedicated team which was committed to serve our social responsibility. We performed the surgery and were delighted with the patient’s fast recovery.

Patient Testimonial: I was a low weight, thin built and had gradually developed Dyspnea. On further diagnosis, I came to know that I had a large PHT. Then one of my relatives suggested me to visit Chandan Hospital. When I visited the hospital, everybody was very cooperative which raised my confidence and the doctor in this organization is considerate. I have been in the institution where the entire staff team members are great and I have been operated and discharged in eight days of stay.

CAD Heart Patient with Serious Complications Successfully Treated at Chandan Hospital

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. Moreover, heart disease in India has also become one of the chief causes of death.  The above statements can be rectified through numerous studies conducted throughout the nation over the years which are Registrar General of India (RGI), the World Health Organization (WHO) report on noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors (GBD) study, Andhra Pradesh Rural Health Initiative (APRHI), Kerala-based Population Registry of Lifestyle Diseases (PROLIFE) study, the Mumbai Cohort Study (MCS), and the Prospective Urban and Rural Epidemiological (PURE) study reports.

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.

Chandan Hospital makes a point to serve the patients of CAD with extensive care and efficiency. By the above illustration of facts regarding CAD heart condition, you might be able to perceive a typical case of any patient. Dr Vishal Srivastava successfully treated a patient who was diagnosed with CAD with severe TVD (triple vessel disease) with LV (left ventricular) dysfunction (EF-45%) with type–II DM (diabetes mellitus) with CKD (chronic kidney disease) after his suggested tests. The patient’s name was Ram Ji who had a medium built of the body. He started to experience severe pains eight months back from his left shoulder and jaw along with sweating palpitation and anxiety. His primary diagnosis was exercised by a doctor in Allahabad confirming his condition with the recommendation of dialysis, Bypass surgery and intensive care. When he came to Chandan hospital and consulted with Dr Vishal Srivastava was relieved as he was provided with the best facility available with the best medical advice to alter his life for better. After assessing his physical condition with related reports he made an informed choice to go with beating heart Bypass (CABG) surgery. Moreover, the patient was spared an ordeal to go through dialysis also his extreme condition of such interrelated health condition was dealt gracefully and carefully.

The procedure was completed successfully and the patient was discharged on the eighth day. Team Chandan celebrated another brilliant win to see another patient recover from his critical condition and heading towards his healthy life. His condition was severe as he was suffering from CAD but also a triple vessel disease, left ventricular dysfunction, chronic kidney disease and type II diabetes. Our medical team had kept a lot of parameters in mind while operating him as with so many complications it was a difficult case to pursue. However, our undying spirit to serve our society in any medical distress provides us with the required brave attempts.

Doctors Statement:

The patient was thin with medium bone structure and low weight. His symptoms were recurring chest pains. He went to numerous healthcare institutes or facilities for Bypass (CABG) surgery. However, his case was very sensitive due to several other health conditions of LV Dysfunction, TVD, CKG and Type II DM became the reason that he was denied of the medical care that he required so much.  Moreover, his financial condition was not so great, restricting his options. When he came to us for consultation in OPD and after thoroughly reviewing his reports we decided to step in. Dr Vishal with his team resolved to provide him with the best medical care as per his condition and took the challenge head-on. Team Chandan is proud to be able to help him and lead him to the path of healthy living.

Patients Testimonial:

My troubles began when I started experiencing severe chest pains eight months back. The pain radiated from left shoulder and jaws along with anxiety, sweating, and palpitation. My initial consultation was performed at a local hospital in Allahabad. After a few tests, I was diagnosed with CAD with severe TVD with LV dysfunction (EF-45%) with type–II DM with CKD. I was recommended for Bypass surgery and dialysis. I was very troubled after this and in a discussion with a friend it came up. He suggested me to visit Chandan Hospital for the surgery as I was denied at many healthcare facilities due to numerous health issues. I am so glad I listened to my friend as this hospital was the answer to my ordeal.  They not only performed the surgery successfully but I also recovered in eight-day to resume my mundane life. They also made sure that I escaped dialysis without any complication. They provided extreme care and with their help, I can continue my life.

Is there a way to treat Seborrheic Keratosis? Visit Chandan Hospital Today

Introduction
Seborrheic keratosis is one of the most common noncancerous skin growths mostly in adults. A seborrheic keratosis usually appears as a brown, black or light tan growth on the face, chest, shoulders or back. The growth has a waxy, scaly, slightly elevated appearance. Seborrheic keratoses don’t become cancerous and aren’t thought to be related to sun exposure, but they can look like skin cancer.

It’s Symptoms A seborrheic keratosis:
• Varies in color, usually from light tan to brown or black
• Is round or oval-shaped
• Has a characteristic “pasted on” look
• Is flat or slightly elevated with a scaly surface
• Ranges in size from very small to more than 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) across
• May itch
Seborrheic keratoses are normally painless and require no treatment. You may decide to have them removed if they become irritated by clothing or for cosmetic reasons. Be careful not to rub, scratch or pick at them. This can lead to bleeding, swelling and, in rare cases, infection.

A male patient came to Chandan Hospital with multiple black sores over the entire face. The patient initially had local discomfort, occasional pain, and irritation over the affected sites. He had also sought medical consultation previously but it failed to cure him. At Chandan, he was followed-up by Dr. Amrita Srivastava and sent for clinical examinations. Clinical Examinations revealed the verrucous growth of benign tumor predominantly over the entire face. After further investigations, Seborrheic Keratosis was confirmed.

Renal Cancer is known to people with various terms such as hypernephroma, renal adenocarcinoma, renal cell carcinoma (RCC) or kidney cancer. It is one of the most commonly found cancer in the kidney in adults. The basic functionality of kidneys in our body is to regulate fluid balance and helps us eliminate the waste from the body. There are small tubes in the kidneys which assist filter the blood, helps in elimination of waste through excretion and urine creation. These small tubes are also known as tubules. Renal Cancer occurs due to rapid and uncontrollable growth of cancer cells in the lining of the tubules of the kidney.

When Renal Cancer is in its early stages, patients may be symptom-free. As the disease progresses, symptoms may include:

  • A lump in the abdomen
  • Blood in the urine
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Vision problems
  • Persistent pain in the side
  • Excessive hair growth (in women)

Renal Cancer is fast-growing cancer and often spreads to the lungs and surrounding organs.

Management

Here we present a case of renal cancer successfully treated at Chandan Hospital, Lucknow. The patient was admitted to the hospital with a complaint of bleeding while urination. Extensive and invasive studies were performed to identify Hematuria in the patient.

A standard procedure of Laparoscopic radical nephrectomy was performed by Dr Manmeet Singh to treat the condition of Hematuria. There is conclusive evidence showing that the long-term cancer control afforded by this procedure is similar to that of open surgical procedures. Oral feeding was initiated on postoperative day 1, and the drain was removed on postoperative day 2. Immediately after the operation, radiofrequency ablation was performed. No complications were observed at the follow-up examination conducted, and the patient fully recovered & was discharged with a small incision. Best Cancer Treatment in Lucknow.

Head Injury Treatment in Lucknow @Chandan Hospital

Introduction
Head injuries are one of the most common causes of disability and death in humans. The injury can be as mild as a bump, bruise (contusion), or cut on the head, or can be moderate to severe in nature due to a concussion, deep cut or open wound, fractured skull bones, or from internal bleeding and damage to the brain.
There are many causes of head injury in children and adults. The most common traumatic injuries are from motor vehicle accidents (automobiles, motorcycles, or struck as a pedestrian), from violence, from falls, or as a result of child abuse. Subdural hematomas and brain hemorrhages (called intraparenchymal hemorrhages) can sometimes happen spontaneously.
When there is a direct blow to the head, the bruising of the brain and the damage to the internal tissue and blood vessels is due to a mechanism called coup-countercoup. A bruise directly related to trauma, at the site of impact, is called a coup (pronounced COO) lesion. As the brain jolts backward, it can hit the skull on the opposite side and cause a bruise called a counter coup lesion. The jarring of the brain against the sides of the skull can cause shearing (tearing) of the internal lining, tissues, and blood vessels that may cause internal bleeding, bruising, or swelling of the brain.

Management
The patient was rushed in Emergency at Chandan Hospital, Lucknow; he was bleeding from his forehead and was in an unconscious state. The emergency staff responded quickly and discovered head injury with exposed RT frontal brain and communicated frontal bone fracture. They also did some further investigation and figured out that the patient’s right pupil dilated & non-reactive and left pupil was pinpoint non-reactive.
Further, test like CT scan was performed on the patient to determine the extent of his head injuries. Following were the findings:

• Comminuted fracture frontoparietal bone with anterior body defect.
• Multiple hyperdense areas with hypodensities are seen in bilateral frontal and right parietal.
• Gangliocapsular region was suggestive of hemorrhagic contusions.
• Multiple air pockets are also seen, sulci and fissures effaced with midline ship of approx 2.5mm.
• Both cerebral hemisphere and brain stem are normal in position and appearance.

The patient underwent surgery, under general anesthesia with bicoronal incision, removal of all contused and exposed RT frontal lobe was done with the elevation of depressed fracture and removal of exposed bone chips. Dr. Mohd Iqbal did fixation of multiple fractured segments of skull bone with miniplate and screws. Alignment of the right upper orbital rim was also performed. Fractures involving frontal bone are rather uncommon. Injuries to this bone are rather critical because of its proximity to the brain. Due to excellent treatment, timely visits, and regular monitoring, the patient recovered successfully without any further complications.

Testimonial
“He was unconscious and his forehead was bleeding very badly. We were dismantled by this situation and got worried, so we rushed immediately to Chandan Hospital where emergency staff quickly responded and made his condition stable. He has undergone surgery and by God’s grace, he has recovered back. It is not less than a miracle. We thank Dr. Mohd Iqbal for his excellent treatment. His timely visits and regular monitoring really helped us to take him back home. We wish Chandan Hospital continues rendering such good quality of treatment.” Best Hospital in Lucknow

Cancer is defined as the uncontrollable growth of cells that invade and cause damage to the surrounding tissue. Oral cancer is a type of cancer that appears as a growth or sore in the mouth that does not go away. Oral cancer can develop in any part of the oral cavity or oropharynx such as on the lips, tongue, cheeks, the floor of the mouth, pharynx (throat), etc and if not diagnosed with treatment earlier it can be life-threatening. If oral cancer metastasizes or spreads it generally progresses through the lymphatic system. Further, these cancer cells travel with the help lymph (a clear & watery fluid) when they enter the lymphatic system. The appearance of cancer cells can be first noticed in nearby lymph nodes in the neck. However, the progression of cancer cells can also be detected in the lungs and other parts of the neck and body. When this happens, the new tumour has the same kind of abnormal cells has developed. The new tumour is also referred by doctors as “distant” or “metastatic” disease. Below are mentioned a few common symptoms that can occur on the gums, lips or any other areas of the mouth in case of oral cancer:

Brain Tumor Treatment in Lucknow – Chandan Hospital

Abstract A brain tumor is an abnormal growth of tissue in the brain or central spine that can disrupt proper brain function. Doctors refer to a tumor based on where the tumor cells began, and whether they are cancerous (malignant) or not (benign). All brain tumors can grow to damage areas of normal brain tissue if left untreated, which could be disabling and possibly fatal. Brain and spinal cord tumors are different for everyone. They form in different areas, develop from different cell types, and may have different treatment options. In this book, we try to offer general guidance for both low grade (benign) and high grade (malignant) primary brain tumors for adults.

Here, we report a case of Brain Tumor in a male who was reported at Chandan Hospital in a state of unconsciousness, pain and weakness. The patient was unable to obey commands and respond normally prior to the diagnosis.

1. Introduction The brain is an elaborate, elegant, and sophisticated mass of tissue and nerve cells. It seamlessly controls our personality, our senses, helps regulate vital body functions, and controls how we move in our environment. When abnormal cells grow in the brain to develop a tumor, it can disrupt how we function and will require treatment considerations that balance how the tumor is treated with how well our brain operates. As part of the diagnostic testing, a doctor will measure nervous system functions, physical and mental alertness, and include the examination of normal brain functions from reflexes to judgment, smell and taste. If responses are not normal, a brain scan will be ordered, or a patient will be referred to a neurologist or neurosurgical oncologist for more tests. A scan is the first step to identify if a brain tumor is present, and to locate exactly where it is growing. A scan creates computerized images of the brain and spinal cord by examining it from different angles. Some scans use a contrast agent (or a dye) to allow the doctor to see the difference between normal and abnormal tissue. A patient may need more than one type of scan to diagnose a tumor, depending on its type and location. The World Health Organization (WHO) has created a standard by which all tumors are classified. There are over 120 brain tumor classifications defined by the WHO, based on the tumor cell type and location, making this a very complex diagnosis. Tumors are given a name based on the cells where they arise, and a number ranging from 1–4, usually represented by Roman numerals I-IV. This number is called the “grade” and it represents how fast the cells can grow and are likely to spread. This is critical information for planning treatment and predicting outcomes. Tumors can contain several grades of cells; however, the most malignant cell determines the grade for the entire tumor (even if most of the tumor is a lower grade). Some tumors can change the way they grow and may become malignant over time. Your doctor can tell you if your tumor might have this potential.

2. Case History The patient (male) was reported at Chandan Hospital Lucknow in a state of unconsciousness, pain and weakness. Prior to treatment/surgery by Dr. Mohammad Iqbal (Neurosurgeon), the patient was unable to obey commands and respond normally. Te patient was diagnosed with brain tumor, a mass or growth of abnormal cells in his brain.

3. Management An emergency case of Brain Tumor was reported by a male at Chandan Hospital, Lucknow, as he was hospitalized in a state of unconsciousness, pain and weakness. He was diagnosed and treated by a Neurosurgeon, Dr. Mohammad Iqbal, who did his surgery with the help of well equipped facility for neuro surgery, at Chandan Hospital. The patient had chief complaint of not being able to obey commands and respond normally. After successful surgery and treatment (post op) the patient is cured (100%) and is fully satisfied with his surgery and treatment.

4. Testimonial “My brain tumor diagnosis was done at Chandan Hospital. Before getting hospitalized, I was in a state of unconsciousness, pain and weakness. Here, I met with the most amazing and empathetic Neurosurgeon, Dr. Mohammad Iqbal, who did my surgery. I am so blessed to have had this type of care and support from the whole team. After successful surgery I was able to obey commands and respond normally. I am fully satisfied with my surgery and treatment taken place at Chandan Hospital. The quality of service offered by Chandan Hospital is excellent.”
