Amputation - Reasons And Risks

MBBS, M S General Surgery ,
General Surgeon, Chandigarh
Amputation -  Reasons And Risks

Roadside accidents are common and they lead to many health problems in which some may require amputation for removal of one of the limbs to save the life of a person.

Amputation is a life-saving procedure by which a part of the body that has suffered irreversible damage is surgically removed. Amputation is only carried out as a last resort when the infection/ decay spread to the other parts of the body.

Why is this procedure needed?

The most common cause of amputation is blockage of blood circulation. Without blood, the tissues do not get oxygen and begin to decay, and an amputation is carried out to stop the damage from spreading to other tissues. As stated above, an amputation is carried out only as a last resort. The surgeon checks the infected part for the following to make sure that an amputation is required:

  • Sensation
  • Circulation
  • Checking for a pulse close to the region where the cut is to be performed
  • Comparing skin temperatures with the affected limb

The surgeon tries to bypass arterial blood from the nearest artery to the affected region to rejuvenate the cells. Some reasons of amputation are:

  • Severe injury (extreme burns/ vehicular accidents)
  • Cancerous tumor in the bone or muscle
  • Serious infection, which has stopped responding to antibiotics
  • Thickening of nerve tissue called neuroma
  • Frostbite

Risks and complications of amputation

Risk of complication is lower in planned amputations than in emergency amputations. In the case of a planned amputation, the surgeon will shape individual muscles for future prosthetic limbs, smooth out rough bones and bone fragments and take care of all the loose ends of the procedure. In emergency amputations, however, the limb is amputated very fast and bleeding is stopped as soon as possible. The following complications may arise as a result of amputation procedures:

  • Heart complications
  • Venous blood clots
  • Slow wound healing or infection of the wound
  • Pneumonia
  • Stump or "phantom limb" pain
  • Psychological problems

15 most effective medicinal herbs to grow in your garden

The medicines that we see today, including the heavy antibiotics and the normal syrups, never existed century ago. However, people since inception have been taking a different form of medications for illness and other health problems. The power of herbal medicines cannot be overlooked at point time – prior to all the modern medicines, these herbal medicines even cured deadly diseases.

How Having Siblings Can Keep You Positive and Healthy?

CST Psychiatry, DNB (PSYCHIATRY), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
How Having Siblings Can Keep You Positive and Healthy?

In most Indian homes, a family is not complete with just one child. Until about a couple of decades ago, a family with a single child was very rare. The most common response would be 'with whom the child will play'. Between the siblings, there is always so much love. Starting from getting attention from the parent to education at all stages of life, this is one relationship which just grows and grows. While it definitely is a feel-good factor, scientifically too, it has been proven to have multiple benefits.

Read on to know some benefits of having siblings and how it can help you stay healthy and positive.

  1. A constant companion: With a sibling around, there is no need to look for a play or study companion. There is always one available right in the same home. This provides for a happy, healthy equation with a lot of give and take that just extends through life.
  2. Continuous learning environment: With a sibling around, the learning never stops. There is a constant teacher/mentor-student relationship with the elder one having an upper hand and trying to teach the younger one all sorts of things from using a chalk to spoon to math to magic.
  3. Sharing begins at home: Whether it is your toys or colours, stationary or chocolates, siblings share a lot of stuff and so from a very young age, there is a behaviour that encourages sharing of all sorts of things. Studies have shown that children with siblings show a lot more sympathy and are more open to sharing things as compared to single children.
  4. Builds selflessness: The next time you see two siblings, notice how the elder one is always so protective of the younger one. The elder one is willing to give up their chocolate just so the younger one smiles. Similarly, the younger one also would give up a toy so that the elder one is happy. This selflessness is ingrained in children with siblings, which extends into their other relationships too later in life.
  5. Tougher individuals: Problem solving is something which gets built in early in life when children have siblings. This comes in handy later in life too, which makes them tougher individuals. They are also better skilled at negotiating, good at setting and achieving goals, managing relationships (both professional and personal), and are so more successful.

The relationship with a sibling just continues through life. The above are some pointers as to how having a sibling makes for a happy, healthier, and positive life. Anyone with a sibling would definitely vouch for these!!

You need to do ultrasound of pelvis to see the cause of pain, though pain is very common and you can take antispasmodics. If your period cycle is 24-25 days interval then it is normal, at this interval you will get twice in one calendar month.

Hello. Always had regular periods since first menses. Used fertility drugs for 2 months in sep & oct'14. Period was late by 9 days in dec'14. Normal in jan'15(8). Haven't had period in feb'15. Negative pregnancy tests. Had period on March 1. Heavy bleeding with clots for 15 days. Lining thickness is 15mm on 14 day. Taking deviry 10 mg since then for 2 times a day. Bleeding completely stopped on 16 days so started taking only once a day. But bleeding was back on 19 day. Since then bleeding every day for couple of hours. Right now taking dose twice with advise of doc. Desperate to have children. By the way on thyroid medication for 2 months which is normal now( tsh- 4). Is bleeding in middle part of treatment thickness of lining. Best possible way to reduce thickness and bleeding asap and get pregnant

MBBS, MD
Gynaecologist,
Regarding your bleeding issue, you may have to continue Deviry 10 mg tablet twice daily without break this time for 20 days. Dose may have to be increased to thrice daily occasionally initially. Some other bleeding-stopping medicines are also prescribed in few cases along with Deviry. If, in spite of medicines for 4 - 5 days in proper doses, bleeding continues, then repeat ultrasound, and thereafter D&C may be required and the curetted tissue may have to be tested. But consult your gynae doctor for specific advice. Medicines like Deviry( Medroxy Progesterone) are used to reduce thickness of uterine lining and stop bleeding in many cases. Regarding your fertility issue, you have to first undergo the standard infertility workup, which means several tests to get done including your husband's.

My wife has aborted the baby and she is feeling very much weakness. What should we do now?

DGO, MD, MRCOG, CCST, Accredation in Colposcopy
Gynaecologist, Kolkata
If she has no concerns with heavy bleeding or fever or bad smelling vaginal discharge I would not worry and ensure she has a well balanced protein rich diet like fish, chicken and pulses. She can also take a multivitamin supplement like a to z from the pharmacy with iron tablets like dexorange once a day for one-two months. Also it may be wise to get a complete blood count done in two weeks time if she continues to feel week.

Hello, medicine for abortion cannot be taken without meeting a doctor. The doctor will assess the duration of pregnancy and if it is safe to abort with medicine. Also for similar reason I ask you not to purchase it from chemist without doctor's prescription since wrong taking of medicine can cause complication.

Normal delivery is a natural process and all pregnancies are designed to be delivered normally. It happens without any precautions. There are no ways to prevent cesarean section. People will advise you to do clean the floor and all that but all that is not proven to be effective. No extra precaution is needed for delivering normally. There are certain things which are not in your hand i. E. Position of the baby, passage of motion by the baby inside uterus, amount of fluid by the side of baby. All these factors and many more can decide your mode of delivery.

What are the causes of miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy how to avoid it please help me.

DNB (Obstetrics and Gynecology), PGDHHM, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Most likely cause of abortion is either defect in baby or improper implantation, weakness of uterus. Other causes of miscarriage include: Infection Medical conditions in the mother, such as diabetes or thyroid disease Hormone problems Immune system responses Physical problems in the mother Uterine abnormalities Cause of ectopic pregnancy is An infection or inflammation of the fallopian tube can cause it to become partially or entirely blocked. Scar tissue from a previous infection or a surgical procedure on the tube may also impede the egg’s movement. Previous surgery in the pelvic area or on the tubes can cause adhesions. Abnormal growths or a birth defect can result in an abnormality in the tube’s shape. Avoid all cause and should take all precautions during pregnancy. It is helpful for you.

Hello lybrate-user. Well there are no nautal methods of abortion that are being used these days. Too if one is going to use medicine for abortion, it have to be under the medical supervision. Because there are chaces of complications like excessive bleeding etc. So here I would suggest you to kindly get yiur urine test done and consult doctor for any further medical intervention. Hope it helped.

Just these symptoms are not confirmation of a pregnancy. You need to get urine pregnancy test to know if you are pregnant or not and then a scan for knowing how old the pregnancy is. Only then further management can be decided for abortion. Suggest getting a urine pregnancy test with the first passed urine in the morning.

Homeopathy

Homeopath,
Homeopathy

Founded upon the principle “like cures like” by Dr. Samuel hahnemann in the early 19th century, mahatma gandhi &saint vivekanandjistated that “ homeopathy cures a larger percentage of cases than any other method of treatment.” additionally, Dr. Charles frederick menninger, founder of the menninger clinic, declared that, “homeopathy is wholly capable of satisfying the therapeutic demands of this age better than any other system or school of medicine.”

Homeopathy works to promote optimal health for the entire individual on all levels: physically, mentally and emotionally. Homeopathy is essentially an energy medicine. Based upon the premise that all disease is the result of some derangement or weakness of our vital force, which by its very existence is energy itself and not substance. Therefore, the only way to bring about a true and lasting cure for our maladies is to introduce a remedy into our organism, which exists on the identical plane and contains those same properties as that vital force which has become compromised.

Embracing those very same principles of nature and of natural healing found in other ancient therapeutics, homeopathy seeks to re-establish both balance and harmony to an individual’s health through the administration of specifically designed remedies. The source of these remedies are derived from all naturally occurring substances. Through scientifically formulated methods, the preparation of these remedies are designed to ensure that they will resonate and stimulate the core of the weakened life force thus enabling it to become strengthened once again and allow the healing process to occur organically from within.

Since the vital force “knows” the precise nature of its own weakness and the accompanying symptoms, which manifest and result from that derangement, once strengthened with homeopathic remedies only the vital force itself can initiate and bring about a speedy return to complete health on all levels.

For over two centuries homeopathic medical treatment has brought about cures for millions of people world wide in a rapid, gentle and permanent way. Until the 1920’s it accounted for approximately 25 percent of all medicine practiced in india. Its renowned use has been long acknowledged throughout the world as a major medical therapeutic. The royal family uses homeopathic medicine for all their members as well as many nationally recognized celebrities.
