Hello,<br/><br/>Is video ke zariye, sports injuries hmare knee joint ke around, uske bare me info...

Hello,

Is video ke zariye, sports injuries hmare knee joint ke around, uske bare me information dena chahunga. Knee joint sports injury bhut hi common hain. Kayi bar bike or road traffic accidents me bhi milti hain. Is s pehle me apko knee joint ke structure ki information dunga so that aap is problem ko easily samjh payein. Knee joint ke alwa knee me bhut sari chizen or bhi hoti hain jisko diagnose krne ke lia hume MRI krna pdta hai. Inme ligaments, ACL, shock absorber (meniscus), upar ki layer jo hai use cartilage bola jata hai. Agar hum ligament ki bat kren to ACL, sabse common injury hai. Isme patient ka knee twist hone lgta hai. Iske karan patient sports me participate nhi kar pate hain.

Ligament injury ke lia arthroscopy surgery iske lia recommend ki jati hai jisme latest technology ke through inko reconstruct kia jata hai. ACL surgery sabse common surgery hai. Post-operation, rehabitation ki jrurat pdti hai. Baki ligaments ka bhi surgical treatments kia jata hai. Meniscus ka role bhut important hai. Agar meniscus ki problem hai to hum ise replace krne ki advice dete hain. Is se weight bearing thik rehta hai. Or patient ke lia ye joint iske baad normal function krta hai. Kayi bar meniscu repair ke layak nhi hota, aise case me torn portion ko nikal dia jata hai jisko hum mastectomy operation kehte hain. Ye arthroscopy se kia ja skta hai. Ab last hum baat krenge cartilage ke bare me.

Ye ek soft layer hoti hai or iska regeneration bhut kam hota hai. Isme sports me bhut problem hoti hai or agar ye unattended rhe to joint khrab bhi ho jata hai. Is case ke lia surgical technique available hai jisko hum autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) or micro-fracture technique bolte hain. Iske through cartilage ki layer ko regenerate kia jata hai. Sports injury ko prevent kia ja skta hai agar aap apne aap ko warm up kren, apne muscles ki care kren, proper training len before going for any sport. Agar prevention ke baad bhi apko injury hoti hai to surgery ke through apko vapas sports me le jane ki koshish kar skte hain. Or ye successful kafi cases me rehta hai.

Thank You.

Hello,

Aaj hum joint pain ke bare me baat krenge. Knee joint jisko ghutna bhi bolte hain. Ye bhut hi common problem hai. Hmare pas bhut sare patients aate hain or iska karran puchte hain. Young patients bhi puchte hain ki isko hum kaise prevent kar skte hain taki hume old age me problem na ho. Hmare body ka load sabse jyada knee joints pe hi pdta hai. Agar aap overweight hain to apko knee pain hone ke chances badh jate hain. Sabse common problem hai degenerative arthritis. Ye age-related hota hai or isme joint ka surface ghis jata hai. Joint ke andar cartilage hoti hai. Ye joint ko painless rkhne ke lia bhut jruri hota hai and agar ye ghis jaye to ye pain krna shuru kar deta hai.

Jab ye advance ho jata hai to iska regeneration nhi hota hai. To hum maximum patients ko surgical treatment ke lia advice krte hain. Is condition ke symptoms kya hain. Patients ko pain hota hai. Day to day activity me dikkat hoti hai. Kayi bar legs tede ho jate hain. Ek dusra arthritis hai jisko hum bolte hain gathiya or rheumatoid arthritis. Ye ek bimari hai. Isme joint puri trha se destroy ho jata hai. Early stage me ye dawaiyon se control ho jata hai.

Or jab ye advance stage me hota hai to hum knee replacement hi advice krte hain. Ye surgery bhut successful hai. Is surgery me jo layer khrab ho jati hai use replace kr dia jata hai. Ise knee surfacing bhi kha jata hai quki isme sirf surface ko hi change kia jata hai. Ek new name hai jisko hum fast track ya enhanced recovery pathway total knee replacement. Isme hum new technology ka use krte hain through gadgets jo pain relief krne ke lia hota hai or ye post-operative dia jata hai.

Iske through patient 2-4 hours me hi kuch steps lene lag jate hain. Bed ke around vo aram se chal skte hain. Is s complications kam ho jate hain or patient ki recovery fast ho jati hai. Aaj kal gyroscopic navigation, blood loss reduction strategies, reducing pain modalities use krte hain or ise fir hum fast track knee replacement ka name dete hain.

I am Dr Arpana Jain, senior gynecologist, attached with Fortis hospital Delhi.

Today we are discussing about cosmetic surgery related to vagina i.e., cosmetic vaginal surgeries. Because of increasing awareness and self-realization of the body, this surgery is in great demand. There are various procedures which we can do To improve the cosmetic problem related to vagina portion. One is vaginoplasty when the vagina lacks because of repeated childbirth, the vagina becomes very loose, and there is decreased sexual pleasure. To increase that, the vaginal uterus can be reduced with surgery, and other is labiality. It is basically the term for labia minora because the inner lip of labia which is very large because of that there is difficulty in walking and there can be difficulty in sexual relation also it leads to a lot of problems, and cosmetically it is also not good. The surgery can be done to reduce the size of this lip. And the other is hymenoplasty, this is a thin membrane over the vagina and after relation it is broken, to repair that membrane and to make the woman virgin again the hymen membrane can be stitched again to make woman virgin. Another point is labia major augmentation. Sometimes it is the outer lip of vulva, which is very thin which is cosmetically not very good, so it can be augmented with putting the backup fat below this to make it beautiful. Another is vulvar lipoclastic. When it is very thick, the labia is very thick, it is very full of backup fats sometimes it becomes very bad looking so it can be reduced by liposuction. Another is G point augmentation, and clitoral hood reduction, sometimes there is long skin layer on G point, it can be reduced the clitoral hood which can be reduced and these two surgeries G point augmentation and clitoral hood reduction is basically to improve the sexual desire. These cosmetic surgeries are increasing day by day to improve the sexual desire and pleasure and because of the cosmetic region, we are doing this which is really really fine.

Thank you so much and if you have any query or if you want to contact me you can come down to my office or you can take appointment through lybrate. Thank you so much.

Symptoms and preventions for Menopause<br/>Symptoms and preventions for Menopause<br/><br/>Hi Goo...

Symptoms and preventions for Menopause

Hi Good morning! I am doctor Aparna Jain, senior consultant obstetrics and gynaecology. Today we are discussing problems related to menopause. Average age of menopause in an average Indian woman is 48 years. 2/3 years beyond that and before that is the period of perimenopause. Lot of women suffer from problems related to menopause first of which is hot flashes, another is urinary problem and sometimes menstrual disorder. Then there can be joint pains as well.


1. Hot Flashes. In hot flashes women usually feel lot of sweating and nervousness. Deficiency of hormones lead to hot flashes, for that we need to supplement the woman with hormones and usually we ask to avoid taking hot drinks and advice to take natural isoflavones to avoid hot flashes.


2. Menstrual Disorder. Menstrual disorder usually happens in the form of either irregular periods or heavy menses and irregular period usually occur in the initial six months to one year time then the period usually stops. If the period continues to be irregular then we need to do investigation to find out whether this woman is having any benign disorder in the uterus or malignant disorder in uterus. For that we need to do an ultrasound of lower abdomen and if required a D&C Hysteroscopy to find out whether there is any growth inside the uterus and we send this tissue for histopathology to rule out malignancy. If the bleeding till persists then the woman may need hysterectomy in that age.


3. Urinary Problem. It is quite common. Usually women do not come out with this problem because they feel shy about disclosing it. The most common problems are either frequency or dysuria which means burning during urination. Another is stress incontinence. Whenever they sneeze or cough they pass small amount of urine. It is all because of hormonal deficiency. Because of which the lining of the urinary bladder as well as the lining of the vagina becomes thin so there is chances of recurrent infection and women suffer from this problem. For this we need to supplement the women with hormones as well as ask them to take natural sources of oestrogens like soya isoflavones.


4. Joint Pain. Usually this is because of the deficiency of Vitamin D and Calcium. For this we need to address and tell them to do lot of exercises and to take Calcium as well as Vitamin D
Usually we subject every woman with health package during menopausal period in which we include a pap smear, and ultrasound routine, blood test like CBC, blood count, as well as lipid profile and kidney function test, sugar, urine routine culture, ultrasound of lower abdomen and if required mammography and if we find any problem one can go for a cardiac check up also. And, usually we tell every post menopausal woman to do some amount of exercise and take calcium and vitamin d and plenty of liquids to avoid any problem related to postmenopausal.

Thank you very much. If you have any problem related to this you can consult me either on Lybrate or you can come down to my clinic.

Benefits of Endoscopic Surgery
I’m Dr. Aparna Jain, Senior Consultant Obstetrics and Gynaecologist.
We are going to discuss about Endoscopic surgery or Laparoscopic surgery in gynaecology. It is basically a pinhole surgery in which doctors don’t open the abdomen. We just put two or three small scar at the abdomen, pet par do ya teen chote scar lagate hain jiske through we can do surgeries.

Various surgeries can be performed laparoscopically or endoscopically like removal of uterus, removal of fibroids from the uterus, removal of ovarian cyst, or ovary me jo gaanth hai uske removal ke lie kar sakte hain, or removal of cyst, any type of cyst like familial cyst or atopic pregnancy i.e, pregnancy inside the fallopian tube. It is outside the uterus and it a is very life threatening condition in which we can do laparoscopic surgery and take out the embryo.

Another issue which can be solved through laparoscopy is the case of infertility. Suppose Somebody, Who is not able to conceive. If there is some problem in the fallopian tube which can be opened by Laparoscope. Endometriosis is another very important problem which leads to infertility which can be corrected laparoscopically.

These are the various conditions which can be dealt with laparoscopy without opening the abdomen. What is the advantage? Why is laparoscopic surgery better rather than opening abdomen?
It is very very important to know about it because logo ke dimag me yeh myth hota hai ki abdomen open karenge toh complete surgery hogi aur laparoscopically agar surgery karenge to wo complete nahi hoga but it is not like that. If we are doing laparoscopic surgery we are having ten times magnification in comparison to a normal eye so it will give better vision, better insight to the disease which we will be able to handle better and the scope of recovery in laparoscopic surgery is much faster than open surgery.

There is not a single large scar on the abdomen. There are multiple, two, three or sometime four scar which is 1 cm or 0.5 cm scar at the abdomen which heal so well that post of pain is very very little after laparoscopic surgery. One is very early, one can ambulate very fast after laparoscopic surgery in comparison to open surgeries and post of addition formation. Sometime, after doing a surgery one landed up in another surgery then, after open surgery there is lot of addition formation inside so second surgery become very difficult but in laparoscopic surgery addition formation is very little so the second surgery becomes easier if somebody has laparoscopic surgery initially. Cosmetically, it is also very good because scars are very less, very little. It is almost an invisible scar in comparison to open surgery.

If you want to consult further, want to know more about laparoscopic surgery or you have any problem, for that you want to consult, you can consult us on Lybrate website.

Pregnancy - How To Be Healthy During It?

Pregnancy - How To Be Healthy During It?

One’s pregnancy is a time when one must be extremely vigilant about a proper diet and good exercise regime that will benefit the child and mother in equal measure. A balanced diet during pregnancy and enough of it is essential for your child to develop and grow in a healthy manner. You need to up your daily intake by 300 to 350 calories per day. Women carrying twins require 500 calories extra each day. Despite the fact that nausea during the initial months of pregnancy can make this troublesome, try to eat a properly balanced diet and take prenatal vitamins.

Here is a guide to a healthy diet during pregnancy:

  1. Eat a variety of food items to get a good amount of the nutrients, which your body requires. 3 main meals and 3 small meals should be taken each day.
  2. Pick fruits and ingredients that are high in fiber like whole grain breads, oats, beans, pasta and rice. In case you take a fiber supplement, increase the dose you take, slowly. This can get rid of gas and cramping. It is just as essential to drink enough fluids when you increase your fiber consumption.
  3. Ensure you are getting enough vitamins and minerals daily. Your specialist can suggest an over-the-counter supplement or recommend a prenatal vitamin for you.
  4. Eat and drink no less than four servings of dairy items and calcium-rich food products a day to guarantee that you are getting at least 1,000 milligrams of calcium on a daily basis.
  5. Eat at least three servings of iron-rich foods such as spinach, beans, lean meat and breakfast cereals every day to ensure that you are getting 27 milligrams of iron each day.
  6. While you are pregnant, you will require 220 micrograms of iodine a day to guarantee for your child's brain and sensory system growth. Look for dairy items like milk, cheese, and yoghurt. In addition, baked potatoes, cooked beans, limited portions of fish like cod, salmon, and shrimp can be very healthy.
  7. Consume at least one good source of vitamin C consistently. For instance, oranges, grapefruits, strawberries, papaya, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, green peppers, tomatoes and mustard greens. Pregnant women require 80 to 85 milligrams of vitamin C a day.
  8. Every pregnant woman needs one milligram of folate each day to counteract neural tube defects like spina bifida. Folic acid is an essential choice when you are pregnant.
  9. Consume at least one source of vitamin A each day. Sources of vitamin A are carrots, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, spinach, water squash, turnip greens, beet greens, apricots, and melon.

Iron Deficiency - Lets Help Our Children With It!

Iron Deficiency - Lets Help Our Children With It!

For the growth and development of children, they need an essential nutrient; Iron. It helps in the transfer of oxygen from the lungs to the body's tissues.

Red blood cells contain iron in the haemoglobin. The haemoglobin carries oxygen in the blood to the different parts of the body. Iron has an important role to play in the development of the brain and generating energy in a child's body. The lack of sufficient iron in the child's body can lead to anaemia, which is a nutritional deficient illness and will require medical attention. When a child suffers from anaemia, the lack of oxygen makes a child weak and sick.

There are certain symptoms of Iron deficiency in a child's body. These are:

  1. Infections and a weak immune system can make a child suffer from frequent infections.
  2. Lethargy and fatigue are the other common symptom of an iron deficient body. Due to deficiency of Iron, it becomes difficult for the body to transport oxygen to cells and hence, it fails to generate enough energy levels.
  3. Breathlessness and increased sweating can be a sign that your child may be suffering from iron deficiency.
  4. Pica Children suffering from iron deficiency may find a special taste for non-food substances like chalk, dirt and clay.
  5. Lack of iron in the body hampers the physical growth of a child.

The deficiency of iron in children can be diagnosed through blood tests. Your doctor may recommend supplementing iron content orally or through multivitamin medicines. But the deficiency of Iron in a child's body should be taken care of with absolute urgency.

Proper steps should be taken to prevent the deficiency of Iron in children. Those notable precautions are mentioned below:

  1. Balanced diet: A well-balanced diet is always recommended. For older children (within 9-12 years of age), red meat, chicken and fish would suffice as good sources of iron.
  2. Oral iron supplements: Oral iron supplements would be required for children with low weight at birth and who have a deficiency of iron in their daily diet.
  3. Vitamin C: Foods such as strawberries, tomatoes and potatoes help in providing sufficient iron content when included in daily diets, thus, reducing the chances of anaemia.

Asthma In Children!

Has your child been coughing frequently lately? Is the cough chronic in nature, making your child breathe rapidly, and does he/she complain about a tightened chest? These symptoms signify that your child is having asthma. Asthma is a medical condition characterized by paroxysmal wheezing respiration dyspnoea. It is common in children and an affected child experiences difficulty in breathing, and a whizzing sound is produced, especially during expiration. Asthma may lead to severe health complications and needs immediate diagnosis and treatment.
Diagnosis: the diagnosis of asthma is based on the symptoms, medical history and a physical examination of the child.
The different modes of asthma diagnosis are as follows:

Medical history and symptoms: you must tell the doctor about any history of breathing trouble with your child or whether there are chances of other inherited health conditions. You must explain your child's symptoms properly, which may include coughing, wheezing, chest pain or tightness and others if observed.

Physical examination: a physical exam will be carried out in your child where the doctor will listen to his heart and lungs, and look for eye or nose allergies.

Medical tests: a chest x-ray of the child has to be carried out, along with a simple lung function test known as spirometry. This test measures the amount of air present in the lungs and determines how fast it can be exhaled. Spirometry enables a doctor to determine the severity of asthma. Some other tests are also carried out for the identification of asthma triggers. They include allergy skin testing, blood tests and x-rays to know if sinus infections are affecting asthma. An asthma test determines the amount of nitric oxide in your child's breath.

Treatment: based on your child's severity of asthma symptoms and his medical history, the doctor will provide you with an action plan to treat the same. This action plan explains all the medications your child requires, the dosage and schedule of the medicines. The plan also includes points on what to do when asthma worsens and when emergency treatment is required. Anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed to children who require bronchodilator medication. All asthma medicines used by adults can be used in case of children but in lower dosages.
You should give the asthma medications to your child using a home nebulizer or a breathing machine. A nebulizer delivers asthma drugs by transforming them from liquid to a mist. The child gets the drug by breathing it via a face mask.
In order to control and manage asthma in children, they must avoid the triggers and should keep away from any source of the smoke. A doctor must be consulted to know about the best diagnosis and treatment methods.
