Be Aware of Hamful Tobacco !!!! Know the Importance of Tobacco Day

The liver is the heaviest organ in the body and is one of the largest.The liver is absolutely crucial to life. Because it is responsible for so many vital functions, when the liver is damaged, your health is affected.Any infection in liver may affect the whole life.A well functioning liver is the key to almost every facet of over-all health.The main functions of the liver is to process nutrients from food, make bile, remove toxins from the body and build proteins.The liver is the main organ in the body that is responsible for metabolizing drugs, alcohol and other toxins, and it is particularly susceptible to damage associated to alcohol.

Effects of Tobacco on the Liver

Smoking Cigarettes Affects Your Liver and Whole Life

Like alcohol, smoking has negative effects on the liver.Prior research reveals that smoking damages the liver.The numerous toxins found in cigarette tobacco lead to chronic inflammation and scarring in the liver, which in turn, increases your risk for liver damage including diseases such as Hepatitis B and C, liver cancer and liver fibrosis.Smoking tobacco can lower the liver’s ability and function to detoxify dangerous compounds.Cigarettes may worsen the course of alcoholic liver disease. Smoking activates chemical materials within the body.These chemicals that are manufactured by smoking also provoke oxidative stress which is linked with lipid peroxidation. When this occurs,the condition fibrosis is developed.Smoking increases the manufacturing of pro-inflammatory cytokines which is related to liver cell damage.

Remember that the nicotine is the most addictive ingredient found in smoke and is therefore responsible for most smokers craving for cigarettes. With each cigarette you smoke, your body produces more of this enzyme and the nicotine leaves your system. This means that, as you smoke more cigarettes, more enzymes are created and nicotine leaves your body more quickly.

Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death worldwide.Studies reveal that by quitting smoking, you drastically reduce your health risks.

On May 31 every year, the world observes World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) that is promoted by the World Health Organization (WHO). The objective of observing World No Tobacco Day is to reduce tobacco consumption which can lead to deadly diseases like cancer and early death.If your dream is to live in a pollution-free environment, then Anti- Tobacco Day 2012 is the right time to express your support to help create a safe and healthy environment for future generations.

Incisional or Ventral Hernia Repair--Bangalore

A hernia occurs when part of an organ(usually the bowel or intestine) protrudes through a weak point or tear in the thin muscular wall that holds the abdominal organs in place.An incisional hernia can develop in the scar tissue around any surgery performed in the abdominal area, from the breastbone down to the groin. 

An incisional hernia usually arises in the abdominal wall where a previous surgical incision was made. This results in a bulge or a tear in the area where the abdominal muscles have weakened. Incisional hernias can increase in size with time.

Incisional hernia repair is a surgical procedure performed to correct an incisional hernia.An incisional hernia, also called a ventral hernia,is a bulge or protrusion that occurs near or directly along a prior abdominal surgical incision.The surgical repair procedure is also known as incisional or ventral herniorrhaphy.Ventral hernia results from a weakness in the musculoaponeurotic layer of the anterior abdominal wall. Almost all type of ventral hernia can be repaired by minimal access surgical approach.

The factors that increase the risk of incisional hernia are conditions that increase strain on the abdominal wall, such as obesity, advanced age, malnutrition, poor metabolism,pregnancy, dialysis, excess fluid retention, and either infection or hematoma (bleeding under the skin) after a prior surgery.

The best surgical approach for Incisional hernia repair is laporoscopic incisional herniorrhaphy, which uses small incisions and a tube-like instrument with a camera attached to its tip.This camera acts as an eye for the doctors for performing an accurate surgery.This minimally invasive laporoscopic surgery reduces the hospital stay,also quicker recovery,reduced wound infection.

This treatment is available at Bangalore at an affordable rate.The treatments are carried out under the guidance experienced and renowned

Inguinal Hernia Repair Bangalore

Hernia is a condition in which part of an organ is displaced and protrudes through the wall of the cavity containing it.There are three parts to a hernia-the orifice, the hernia sac, and the hernia's contents.In most cases a hernia will occur when the compartment which envelopes an organ receives increased pressure,this weakens the boundary.This may happen for several reasons, including Age,Pregnancy,Genetic propensity,Drastic weight loss,Excessive lifting.

Inguinal Hernia happens in the small opening between tissues or parts of an organ projecting into the pelvis from the internal inguinal ring.The inguinal ring is at the entrance to the inguinal canal.The inguinal canal is an oblique canal through the lower abdominal wall.An inguinal hernia occurs when tissue pushes through a weak spot in your groin muscle.This causes a bulge in the groin or scrotum.The bulge may hurt or burn.

Most inguinal hernias happen because an opening in the muscle wall does not close as it should before birth. That leaves a weak area in the belly muscle. Pressure on that area can cause tissue to push through and bulge out. A hernia can occur soon after birth or much later in life.If you are overweight or you do a lot of lifting, coughing, or straining, the chances of hernia is very high.Hernias are more common in men. A woman may get a hernia while she is pregnant because of the pressure on her belly wall.

The main symptom of an inguinal hernia is a bulge in the groin or scrotum. It often feels like a round lump. The bulge may form over a period of weeks or months or it may appear all of a sudden after you have been lifting heavy weights, coughing, bending, straining, or laughing. The hernia may be painful, but all are not painful,some hernias cause a bulge without pain.A hernia also may cause swelling and a feeling of heaviness, tugging, or burning in the area of the hernia.These symptoms may get better when you lie down.Sudden pain, nausea, and vomiting are signs that a part of your intestine may have become trapped in the hernia.

Removal of an Ovarian Cyst

Ovarian cysts are small fluid-filled sacs that develop on a woman's ovaries. Cysts are very commonly found in women who have polycystic ovary syndrome and are, in fact, one of the defining characteristics of the disease. These occur when your body begins growing an egg follicle that does not fully develop/release a mature egg at the end of the menstrual cycle.
 Ovarian Cystectomy is the surgical way of removing the cyst in the ovary. Ovarian cysts that do not disappear on their own or those that are 4 to 8 centimeters in size may be removed by surgery to ensure that the cyst is not cancerous. Surgery may also be needed if some patients who are menopausal (the time in a woman's life in which the menstrual cycle ends). Surgery to remove an ovarian cyst may be done by a Cystectomy without removing the ovary.

The Best way to remove ovarian cysts is Laparoscopic treatment. In Laparoscopic treatment, Laparoscopy is used to remove ovarian cysts in a less invasive way. Laparoscopic surgery involves the use of a laparoscope that is inserted through a small incision below the navel. A laparoscope is an endoscopic tube with a camera and light attached to it. Other tiny incisions are also made through which surgical instruments are inserted to remove the ovarian cyst.

Symptoms of ovarian cyst:
  1. Pelvic pain shortly before your period begins or just before it ends
  2. Pelvic pain — a constant or intermittent dull ache that may radiate to your lower back and thighs
  3. Pelvic pain during intercourse (dyspareunia)
  4. Menstrual irregularities
  5. Pressure on your rectum or bladder — difficulty emptying your bladder completely
  6. Pain accompanied by fever or vomiting
  7. Fullness or heaviness in your abdomen
  8. Nausea, vomiting or breast tenderness similar to that experienced during pregnancy
  9. Sudden, severe abdominal or pelvic pain
Risks involved in Laparoscopic Surgery:
  1. Injury to the bowel or bladder
  2. Bleeding
  3. Infection 
  4. Uncontrolled pain
  5. Clotting
  6. Adverse effects of anesthesia
  7. Recurrence of cysts after the surgery
Advantages of Laparoscopic Surgery:
  1. Recovery is very fast in the case of laparoscopy 
  2. Patients can resume normal activities in a day or two

Laparoscopic Hernia Repair Bangalore

Laparoscopic Stomach Hernia repair is similar to other laparoscopic procedures. First the surgeon makes a cut over the area of the hernia. A thin, lighted instrument called a laparoscope is inserted through the incision. The instruments to repair the hernia are inserted through other small incisions in the lower abdomen. Mesh is then placed over the defect to reinforce the abdominal wall.
Both Women and men can get a hernia. Some hernias it may be present at birth, while others develop over time. A hernia does not get better over time and it will not go away by itself. Hernias are most commonly occurring in the groin ('inguinal hernias'), around the belly button ('umbilical hernias'), and near the site of a previous surgical operation ('incisional hernias').

Approximately 600,000 hernia repair operations are performed annually in India. Many are performed by the conventional "open" method. Some hernia repairs are performed laparoscopically using a small telescope called laparoscope.

During laparoscopic surgery, we make a small half inch cut in the skin at the belly button. Then a thin cannula  (tube) is introduced in between the muscle fibers without cutting any of the muscle. Through the tube, the laparoscope is inserted into the patient's body. It is equipped with a tiny camera and light source that allows it to send images through a fiber-optic cord to a television monitor. The television monitor shows a high resolution magnified image. Watching the monitor, the surgeon can perform the procedure. While looking inside the patient, further 2 half inch diameter tubes are put in. This way, the already weak muscles are not disturbed and the net is placed through the ½ inch holes that are away from the hernia. Thus there is minimal disturbance to the normal body and as a result the pain is minimal and very little rest is required. There are more and more reports showing the success of this technique in reducing post operative pain, rest and recurrence rates.

Preparation  for Surgery

Most hernia operations are performed on an outpatient basis that is the patient will go home on the same day that the operation is performed.

You should shower the night before or the morning of the operation.

You should refrain from eating or drinking after midnight on the night before your operation.

Some preoperative testing may be required depending on your medical condition and the type of anesthesia needed for your operation.

If you have difficulties moving your bowels, an enema or similar preparation should be used after consulting with your surgeon.

If you take medication on a daily basis, discuss this with your surgeon.

Laparoscopic hernia is an efficient technique that compares favorably to current open surgical techniques. The patients are relatively pain free and can return to work and normal activities much quicker than open hernia repairs.

Advantages of Minimally Invasive (Laparoscopic) Repair
  1. Shorter operative time, 
  2. Less pain, 
  3. Shorter recover period.

We provide all laparoscopic procedures like AdhesiolysisSurgery, Cholecystectomy, Hernia Repair, Hydatid Cyst Liver, Inguinal HerniaRepair, Rectopexy, Repair of Hiatus Hernia, Splenectomy, Varicocelectomy, Drainage of Liver Abscess, Tubal Ligation, Ovariar Cystectomy, Hysterectomy etc with affordable cost in Bangalore, India.

LAPAROSCOPY : The Fastest Growing Technology in Surgery

Laparoscopic Surgery or minimally invasive or Keyhole surgery is a surgical procedure in which done with the help of a video camera and several thin instruments. In Laparoscopic surgery small incisions about half an inch are made and after that laparoscope attached with laser are passed through those incisions. These ports help to place camera and instruments inside the patient's body in order to make internal organs visible to the surgeon. And gas like carbon dioxide injected into belly through one of the incision in order to inflate the belly, this gas make a gap between internal organs and abdominal wall this helps the surgeon to make a clear view on internal organs. The video camera inside the body acts like surgeon's eyes in which it transfer the internal view of organ to outside monitor and surgeon perform the surgery with the help of instruments which already placed through the ports by watching the inside view on screen.

After conducting the operation the instruments and gas will be removed, after that incisions will be repaired with stitches and bandages. The scar happened due to surgery are negligibly small and will be faded soon. The entire procedure may take half an hour to one and half hour. The patient will be shifted to rest room for two to five hour. Patient can enter into normal life activities except strain full work or exercise on the next day.
