Micro Lumbar Disectomy - Signs You Need It!

A microdiscectomy is performed on the herniated disc of an individual to relieve the pressure from the spinal nerve root by eliminating the material which is causing the pain. Being minimally evasive in nature, this technique of disectomy is carried out to provide much-needed relief from the pain caused due to a lumbar herniated disc.

The procedure of the micro lumbar discectomy is not very complicated. During the procedure, a small part of the bone which is present over the nerve root or the disc material is taken out for relief. A microdiscectomy is also known as microdecompression which is more effective in leg pain.

Indications For Micro Lumbar Disectomy

It is very much important to understand that micro lumbar discectomy can be very important if the patient is suffering from serious pain and problems. Here are some indications which show that an individual needs such a disectomy:

● Excruciating pain in the affected areas which does not allow the person to work or carry out normal activities that he or she does.

● Inflammation or redness around the area which is caused due to the constant pain.

● When the leg pain is the major thing affecting a person rather than a back pain as well.

● A kind of leg pain which exceeds more than 6 weeks and keeps affecting.

Advantages And Disadvantages

No surgery comes without both sets of advantages and disadvantages. So, micro lumbar discectomy also has both the sides of advantages and disadvantages which you should be knowing about.

Advantages - Micro Lumbar Discectomy is minimally evasive which makes it possible for the patients to undergo much less pain and trauma. In most of the cases, the doctor separates the muscles instead of cutting it. This helps to minimize the trauma and helps to heal in a better manner. The removal of the muscle is therefore done more precisely giving the patients a quicker way to recover and carry on with their normal activities.

Disadvantages - Even though the risk and complications are reduced because of the minimally evasive nature, there are certain risks associated to it. Postoperative infections can be a real risk when a person goes through a micro lumbar discectomy. A dural tear can occur when incisions are made around the area which is affected. Although it is very rare, but nerve damages can also be a risk in the case of a lumbar discectomy.

So as you can see that the micro lumbar discectomy is a brilliant way to help an individual who is suffering from herniated disc and immense leg pain rather than back pain. You must always visit a reputed and recognized surgeon to make sure that you undergo a safe and sound treatment for the problem you are facing. Any kind of wrong treatment can cause a serious damage to your lifestyle.

Scalp Micro Pigmentation - Know Its Merits And Demerits!

Scalp Micro Pigmentation - Know Its Merits And Demerits!

For long, people have had a tough time dealing with hair fall and baldness. In some people, especially men, the baldness may appear in patches, affecting their overall appearance, with people looking way older than their age. Scalp Micro Pigmentation has been a revelation in the truest sense, taking the market by storm. It is a natural and non-surgical procedure to deal with hair fall and the associated problems.

Scalp Micro Pigmentation can be used to treat a host of hair problems including

  • Alopecia (hair loss which is genetically triggered), crown balding, partial or complete baldness in men, as well as diffused hair loss.
  • Women, too, can benefit from the Scalp Micro Pigmentation.
  • Scars (in the scalp), resulting from an injury or an accident can be successfully camouflaged using SMP.
  • Also termed as the Medical Hairline Tattoo, Scalp MicroPigmentation is much more than any ordinary hair tattoo. It is a scientifically approved procedure which uses natural and hypoallergenic (thereby eliminating the chances of any allergic reactions) pigments.

Unlike Hair transplant, Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP), does not help in hair regrowth. However, the bald patches (partial or complete) can be perfectly camouflaged using SMP. In SMP, natural pigments are applied to the scalp (the 2nd dermal layer). These pigments give the impression of natural hair follicles. In the case of complete baldness, your scalp will appear to be clean shaved (due to the pigments that mimic the natural hair follicles).


It takes 3 sessions (each lasting for 3-4 hours) for a complete Scalp MicroPigmentation, performed by highly skilled and experienced practitioners. For better results, the practitioner maintains at least a week's gap between the sessions.The procedure usually needs a touch-up every 2-3 years.



Merits and Demerits of Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP)

  • Scalp MicroPigmentation comes as a blessing for people who have made desperate and all possible attempts to deal with the hair loss and the associated stigma that comes with it.
  • Being a non-surgical procedure, SMP involves no incision (unlike hair transplantation).
  • SMP is not very expensive and leaves only a small pinch in the pocket.
  • The use of natural and hypoallergenic pigments minimize the chances of infections or associated complications.
  • Side-effects are seldom observed in SMP.
  • It has a quick healing time of about 2-4 days.

Like most of the surgeries and procedures, the Scalp MicroPigmentation too comes with its share of demerits.

  • The biggest drawback of SMP is that it does not cause any hair growth. All it does is to hide the bald patches or the receding hairline with the natural pigments.
  • The procedure will only give the scalp a fuller look. It can do nothing about the length of the hair, unlike a hair transplant, where you have a hair growth of the desired length.
  • If you intend to go for hair transplant at a later period, do not opt for SMP, as it will leave a disparity in the hair color.
  • In spite of the few demerits, SMP is still widely recommended, although the ultimate decision will always be yours.

Cough And Surgery!

Cough And Surgery!

Implications of cough before and after surgery: it's prevention and treatment are key to judicious management

Patients with cough frequently present to clinicians working in both primary and secondary care. Acute cough, which often follows an upper respiratory tract infection, may be initially disruptive but is usually self limiting and rarely needs significant medical intervention. Chronic cough often points towards some underlying lung pathology but many a times it presents as the sole manifestation of some throat pathology as well. Even with a clear diagnosis, cough can be difficult to control and, for the patient, can be associated with impaired quality of life. Any surgery may have some implications on the course of cough for any cause, whatsoever. On the other hand, surgery, per say, may create some situations which lead to distressing cough.

Acute cough before surgery:

May occur as an exacerbation of chronic underlying lung disease eg. Asthma, copd or lung fibrosis or an acute viral illness, commonly. The chronic disease should be evaluated in terms of lung function to predict post-operative risk for prolonged ventilation. Any acute viral illness causing distressing cough may entail delaying the surgery for 6 weeks, depending on the assessment of concerned anaesthesiologist. This is due to the fact that an acute viral infection may make the person more susceptible to the ill effects of anaesthetic agents. Another issue regarding the effect of violent cough in some specific form of surgery like cataract extraction is the adverse operative outcome due to raised pressure in eyes with every bout. So, the cough needs to get controlled by applying vigorous measures, depending on the cause and extent of cough, in such special cases.

Post- operative cough:

There could be several causes occurring not very rarely in many post-operative cases. The causes may be:
I) effect of anaesthetic gases
Ii) laryngeal swelling due to placement of plastic tube in airways during any prolonged surgery
Iii) segmental lung collapse due to lack of chest wall movement
Iv) infection in lower airways due to any compromised immune status or pre-existing illness
V) partial damage of a nerve named phrenic nerve in any upper abdominal surgery, causing partial immobility to the diaphragm
Most of the conditions deserve separate attention, but common post-operative measures taken to mitigate cough, are:
a) post-operative deep breathing exercises
b) incentive spirometry
c) chest physiotherapy
d) steam inhalation, mostly for tracheal problems regarding intubation
e) inhaled bronchodilators as and when necessary
f) suitable antibiotics, as needed

Good effect of cough, post-operatively

Mainly after thoracic and upper abdominal surgeries, cough-reflex is very important. The natural defence mechanism to clear the airways, is utterly needed in these cases to prevent post-operative pneumonia. The only precaution to be taught is, the patient has to immobilise the operative site with a clinching pillow, while coughing, to prevent wound dehiscence and other complications.
To summarise, cough as a reflex to clear the airways, is welcome proposition to prevent stasis of secretions and subsequent infection. But, distressing and uncontrolled cough is a real worrisome phenomenon, needing meticulous prevention and control before and after surgery, to avoid untoward complications.

The Essential 4 Macronutrients and 3 Micro Nutrients Our Body Needs
Types of Nutrients Your Body Needs

To keep our body functioning, we need different types of nutrients from our diet. These nutrients are mainly classified into two types: 1. Macro nutrients 2. Micronutrients

Macronutrients are the nutrients which are required in large amounts and micro nutrients are required in smaller quantities.

Macronutrients

1. Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are the main source of energy in our body. Starch, fructose, glucose etc are examples of different carbohydrates. The sources of carbohydrates are grains, bread, fruits, and starchy vegetables.

2. Proteins: Proteins, also known as body building blocks, are essential for repair and maintenance different tissues like bones and muscles. Pulses, meat and eggs are the sources of proteins.

3. Fats: Fats are of two types, saturated and unsaturated. Saturated fats are synthesized in our body thus we need not to obtain it from external sources. Excess intake of saturated fats result in many health problems like high BP, high cholesterol, heart problems, obesity etc. Unsaturated fats, also called essential fats, are not produced in body and thus have to be included in our diet. Unsaturated fats are available in plant sources and some types of fishes.

4. Water: Our body is about 70% of water. We need water for different functions like metabolism, transportation etc.


Micronutrients

1. Vitamins: Vitamins are vital amino acids. They are of two types: Fat soluble and water soluble. Fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) can be stored in the body with the fat reserves. Water soluble vitamins (B complex and C) are lost easily with the body fluids and must be replenished on regular basis.

2. Minerals: They are the essential chemicals required in very small quantities for very vital body functions. They assist in our body’s metabolic system. Calcium, potassium, iron, zinc etc are the examples of minerals which can be obtained from different food and supplements.

3. Fibers: Fibers are indigestible nutrients present in mainly plant based food. Fiber rich diet prevents constipation and improves bowel movements. It also helps in reducing bad cholesterol and diabetes.

Fruits and vegetables are sources of micronutrients.
