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.

Management
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. Based on the clinical findings, a diagnosis of Seborrheic Keratosis was done by using the most-advanced Carbon Dioxide Laser technology. After the diagnosis, the patient was successfully treated with good outcome and was instructed to keep good hygiene to prevent post-operative infections.

Testimonial
I was under-treatment of Dr. Amrita Srivastava, MD (Dermatology) for my treatment. She is a proficient doctor. She makes full use of diagnostic processes to arrive at her diagnosis.

Introduction

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

Oral Cancer Treatment in Lucknow

Introduction

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:

  • Thickening/ Swelling
  • Lumps/ Bumps
  • Rough spots/ Crusts/ Eroded Areas

Here we report a case of Oral Cancer at Chandan Hospital, Lucknow. A patient came in complaining ulcerative growth on the right lateral border of the tongue from the past 2 months. The patient not only had burning sensations in his tongue, but the pain radiated to the ear as well. Treatment for the diagnosis and post-treatment were successfully done under the supervision of Dr Priyanjal Gautam and Dr Vivekananda Singh, at Chandan Hospital, Lucknow. 

Management

A Patient was admitted in Chandan Hospital, Lucknow with a complaint of ulcerative growth RT lateral border of the tongue which was present for the last 2 months. Intake of any food caused a burning sensation in the tongue as well as the pain radiated to the ears of the patient. Under the supervision of Dr Priyanjal Gautam and Dr Vivekananda Singh, patient’s diagnosis (growth on the right lateral border of tongue; T2NOMO), was done successfully. The doctors performed ‘Ulcerative Growth at Lateral Border of Tongue’ procedures at the pre-treatment stage.

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.”

Debridement with Skin Grafting (Extensive)

Abstract What is a skin graft? A skin graft involves removing a thin layer of skin from an area of the body, such as the thigh or buttocks, and placing it over a new bed of healthy tissue under a burn. This skin then adheres to the wound. The area where the skin is taken from is called the donor site. The location and size of the graft determines how it will be secured, for example with staples, stitches or surgical glue.

What is debridement? Debridement is a procedure that is used to remove the dead skin (or eschar) from the burn area. This procedure is performed under a general anaesthetic in an operating theatre. The burnt area is removed to expose healthy tissue to which the skin graft will be secured.

 1. Introduction Debridement is the removal of unhealthy tissue from a wound to promote healing. It can be done by surgical, chemical, mechanical, or autolytic (using your body’s own processes) removal of the tissue. Skin Grafting may be done if a part of body has lost its protective covering of skin due to burns, injury, or illness. Most skin grafts are done using general anesthesia, which means patient will be asleep throughout the procedure and won’t feel any pain Surgical debridement may be necessary if non-viable tissue is present in a wound; if orally treated osteomyelitis remains unresolved; or if a sinus tract prevents complete wound closure. Post-operative treatment can include immobilization, elevation and antibiotics. Once a non-plantar wound is devoid of all non-viable tissue, healing may be accelerated by a split thickness skin graft or flap. Soft, bulky dressings are often the post-operative dressings of choice. A surgical approach to healing the lower extremity may be considered if previously described conservative treatments are not producing optimal results.  Several routine procedures are occasionally performed and designed to balance bony structures, improve biomechanics or enhance soft tissue for reduction of high pressures during functional ambulation. This is a case of extensive debridement with skin grafting. A female paitient reported at Chandan Hospital, Lucknow complaining about the occurrence of pleural and pericardial effusion with necrotic patches over the right upper limb and swelling over breast.

2. Case History A female patient reported at Chandan Hospital, Lucknow, India was in a state of shock. She had chief complaint of occurrence of pleural and pericardial effusion. The patient also had necrotic patches over the right upper limb and swelling over breast. She was given extensive treatment of debridement with skin grafting.

3. Management The patient presented at the Chandan Hospital in a state of shock with necrotic patches over the right upper limb and swelling over breast with the occurrence of pleural and pericardial effusion. The patient was then followed by Dr. Shree Harsh and underwent initial treatment. During this process, Vacuum Assisted Closure (VAC) was applied and Skin Grafting was done over the right upper limb. She improved significantly both subjectively and objectively and returned to her usual activities.

4. Testimony “I am writing to express my most sincere appreciation for the exceptional experience I had during my entire treatment at Chandan Hospital in Lucknow. The hospital staff and doctors are very responsive and polite. It’s rare that a person leaves a hospital feeling like they are leaving behind friends, but this is one of those moments for me. “

Don’t Waste Time! Visit Chandan Hospital for Primary Angioplasty Treatment

Abstract Angioplasty is a treatment to re-open a blocked coronary artery. When an angioplasty is used to re-open a coronary artery when someone is having a heart attack, it is called a primary angioplasty. Primary angioplasty is sometimes called primary PCI, or PPCI for short. PCI stands for per cutaneous coronary intervention. Heart is a muscle that pumps blood around body, delivering oxygen and other nutrients to cells. Heart muscle needs its own supply of oxygen and nutrients so that it can pump blood around body. The heart muscle gets its blood supply from its coronary arteries, which are on the outside of heart. Primary angioplasty is the preferred treatment for many people having a heart attack, but only if it can be given very soon after the symptoms start. The ambulance service works closely with hospitals in their area to try to make sure that people with a suspected heart attack are taken to a hospital that can carry out a primary angioplasty.

 1. Introduction Primary angioplasty, also called percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), is a procedure which treats blockages within the coronary arteries and improves blood flow to the heart. Primary angioplasty involves stretching any narrowed areas of the coronary arteries using a balloon which is attached to a thin catheter (tube). Like an angiogram, the catheter is inserted, under local anaesthetic, into a main artery in the upper leg or lower arm and then passed gently into the aorta (the large artery which supplies the heart muscle with its own blood supply). The balloon, at the tip of the catheter, is blown up at the narrowed area(s) of the artery; this forces the artery open and widens it. In the majority of cases a metal stent will also be placed in the artery. A stent is a cylinder of metal mesh which acts like a scaffold to keep the artery open and prevent the artery narrowing again. The artery heals around the stent making it a permanent part of the artery. Here, we’d like to report a Primary Angioplasty of a male patient who came as a medical emergency at Chandan Hospital. The patient was complaining of severe chest pain. He was treated immediately by Dr. Deepak Tiwari. After successful treatment the patient is now fully recovered.

2. Case History A male patient reported at Chandan Hospital Lucknow, India as a medical emergency. The patient had a chief complaint of severe chest pain. He was provided with immediate attention and proper treatment.

3. Management Mr. Ram Lakhan Yadav was presented with severe chest pain as a medical emergency at Chandan Hospital, Lucknow. He was in a very critical stage and was given primary treatment and immediately handed over to Dr. Deepak Tiwari. Because of the timely intervention by the Chandan Team, he survived and now is recovering fast. Dr. Deepak Tiwari along with well equipped team of Chandan Hospital excellently treated such a medical Emergency.

4. Testimony “I came at Chandan Hospital in a state of medical emergency, while having severe chest pain. I was in a very critical stage.
