Heart Transplant in India

Heart Transplant in India

Organ transplant has been around for years, but no one had publicly mentioned a heart transplant until Simon Flexner, an American medical researcher, did on his paper “Tendencies in Pathology” in 1907.

A heart transplant is a surgical procedure which involves the removal of the heart of a patient with severe heart disease that does not respond to other medical treatments or end-stage heart failure and replacing it with the heart of a person(donor) that has been declared brain dead. The donor’s heart is removed and placedon ice to preserve it while it istaken to the recipient because the heart cannot last more six hours outside the body, it is often taken to the recipient via a plane or helicopter.

Who Needs a Heart Transplant?

The demand for hearts is higher than the supply, according to the Organ Procurement and Transplant Network(OPTN), there are 3,945 people on the waiting list in the United States alone, hence the need for a careful selection process for who gets to have a heart transplant. For you to qualify for a heart transplant, it goes beyond having just an end-stage cardiovasculardisease; you must not suffer any other life threatening illness or infections such as cancer and a severe diabetes mellitus, all other parts of the body must be working very fine. Patients who abuse alcohol and smoke may not also qualify for a heart transplant.

Last but certainly not the least qualification, patient’s immune system must be compatible with the donor’s heart, this is to avoid or reduce rejection after the surgery.

The Heart Transplant Procedure in India

The heart transplant is facilitated once there is theavailability of a donor’s heart. Surprisingly the heart transplant is a very straightforward surgical operation for a cardiac surgeon; it is done under general anaesthesia, the patient will not be awake.

The first phase of the operation involves harvesting the donor’s heart from his or her body and then taking to the recipient quickly. To keep the donor’s heart alive while being transported to the recipient, it is stored in ice. In India there are Transplant authorities that assign donated heart of cadaver patient to needy patient on first cum first serve basis depending on clinical match. Recently Heart transplant in India has increased successfully due to Organ authorities pro-active measures to promote organ donation.

The second phase of the operation involves taking out the recipient’s failing heart; it is usually a simple process except for patients that have had heart surgery, there is often difficulty in cutting through the scar tissues.

The third and final phase is where the donor’s heart gets implanted into the recipient.

After the surgery, patients are usually kept at the hospital for three weeks for recovery and lecturing on how best to take care of their new heart and general body health. Some patients might take longer to recover while others take ashorter time to leave the hospital and go back to their daily lives.

Success and Complications of a Heart Transplant

The heart transplant is a very successful procedure, 80% of patients live at least for a year, 70% live for over 5 years, and 50% live for at least ten years, and the numbers will only improve in the coming years. Even with the successes recorded in heart transplant, it comes with a few complications.

The most common complication is rejection, the recipient’s immune system rejects the donor’s hearts, this is because our immune system primary function is to fight foreign bodies and tissues that enter our body. So to counter the rejection by the immune system, thepatient takes immunosuppressive medications, these suppress the immune system and allows the acceptance of the donor’s heart, but then other infections are also allowed into the body.Patients then start experiencing symptoms like fatigue, fever, headaches and flu-like symptoms but your transplant team can easily handle all of these and the regular checkups also help to ensure to ensure you are healthy. Research is also being done to stop the entry of infections to the body while on immunosuppressive medications.

Then there is primary graft dysfunction, where the donated heart fails to work.

Overview

While the risks and complications of aheart transplant are quite evident so also is its success rate as mentioned earlier; there are records of patients that have gone on to live 25 years after receiving a transplant

Patients can return to their social and work life in one or two weeks after transplant. Apatient that does not qualify for a heart transplant has the option of an artificial heart. The whole heart transplant experience is sure going to improve thanks to the various research being done on it. There will be better ways to handle the complications, and the preservation of donated hearts will improve.

India – Destination for Kidney Transplant – Affordable Ethical

Why Kidney Transplant?

The damage of the nephrons in the kidneys makes them lose their filtering capabilities and this condition is termed kidney disease. The harmful substances remain in circulation in the blood which can be life threatening over time. Kidney disease when untreated can cause multiple organ failure and ultimately lead to death. There are different stages of kidney disease and when the person has lost 90% of the kidney function they are said to have end stage kidney disease. A kidney transplant is the best chance of recovery.

Process towards Kidney Transplant –

A patient requiring healthy Kidney needs to have a donor within the family. This donor should be willing to donate his/her kidney. Once the donor is ready, compatibility screening is required to ensure that it’s a match for recipient. The test is called HLA typing. It’s recommended that you do this test in your home country and confirm that the willing donor’s kidney matches the patient’s kidney requirement.

One the match is confirmed, contact Treatment Possible team. Please send the medical reports to us and we shall get back to you with free doctors opinion along with treatment cost and other details. We will inform you related legal document to establish relation between the donor and recipient. These legal documents are required as per legal procedures in India.

Once the donor and fund is arranged, plan your trip to India. Once you arrive in India Treatment Possible will provide all required service and support including pick-up from airport, sim card, hospital scheduling and accommodation arrangement.

Please watch testimonial of our Kidney Transplant patient from Ethiopia on https://www.facebook.com/treatmentpossible/video/637708219762049/

Cost of Kidney Transplant in India

Treatment Possible will ensure you receive the lowest price in India’s best hospital. This is possible because of our goodwill and long standing association with India’s best medical institutions. A standard cost of Kidney Transplant would be USD 13500.

This includes:

  • Work-up for recipient and donor to match compatibility.
  • 2 days stay for both donor and recipient.
  • Surgery of donor.
  • Surgery of recipient.
  • ICU and ward stay for both donor and recipient.
  • 4 days for donor.
  • 7 days for recipient.
  • OT charges, surgeon fees, consumables and pharmacy during the hospital stay.

Exclusions

  • Anti rejection drug which will cost additional USD 1500 if required. It is required in less than 20% of Kidney Transplant surgeries.
  • Outside stay during the legal clearance. Legal clearance will take 1 week to 3 week. During this period we shall provide our own service apartment at an affordable rate.
  • Additional dialysis that may be required out of hospitalisation.
  • Any other cost arising out of unseen clinical condition.

Stem cell in treating Autism

Stem cell in treating Autism

What is Autism?

Autism is a neural development disorder which is characterized by impaired social interactions, mood alterations, communication, metabolic issues, digestive issues and repetitive behavior. The symptoms become quite apparent during the first two years of childhood and impact the way information is processed in the brain by altering the way nerve cells network and organize.

How can Autism be treated?

Autism treatment falls under one of the two categories: medical management and educational interventions. More than half of the children who are detected with Autism are recommended anti-convulsants or psychoactive drugs. They respond to medications; however, these can result in adverse effects. There is no medication known that can relieve the core symptoms of Autism such as communication and social impairments.

Stem cell therapy is an effective approach for treating Autism which is based on the ability of the stem cells to influence the immune system, metabolism and restore damaged tissues and cells. The treatment impacts systems and organs in a positive manner including the brain. A treatment with stem cell enhances oxygen and blood flow to the brain. It stimulates the formation of new arteries as well replaces the neurons. The potential to repair the damaged brain tissue forms core of the principle as stem has ability to repair neural tissues at structural and molecular level. The stem cells that has been infused acquire the properties of cells around them and multiply to form these cells. This results in restoration of white and gray matter which, in turn, enhances the intellectual capacity of the individual. Research studies have proven that the immune system can be improved significantly with mesenchymal stem cells.

What kind of stem cells is used for the treatment?

Stem cell can be derived from fat of the patient called Adipose, Bone Marrow and from Placental & umbilical cord blood. As stem cell is derived from the patient itself (adult stem cell transplant) it does not have any side effects on the patient. All the stem cells are screened for bacteria and viruses before they are approved for the treatment.  Stem Cells from patient’s own body does not have any adverse effect on the patient.

Improvements due to stem cell therapy

• Improved digestion and better tolerance for different foods

• Some children start trying new foods

• Autistic children start making eye contact. Children who have problem with gazing at objects start looking at them with interest

• Adequate behavior is demonstrated both outside and at home

• Reduced fear of bright colors, strangers, and loud noises

• Gradual improvement in verbal skills. The person starts pronouncing words and there is an expansion in their vocabulary

• Development of writing skills

• Improvement in self-care skills

• More sustained concentration and attention span

Although there is a difference in the degree of the improvement from one child to another, they have been noted in all the cases. The key goal of therapy with stem cells is to repair the damaged portion of the brain, trigger the development of the brain and in order to prepare an autistic child for an adult life. Development of professional, learning, self-care and communication skills help an autistic individual during the process.

Stem cell therapy is a safe and effective method for the treatment of autism and spectrum of disorders of varying degrees. Better results can be expected when the treatment is started at an early stage. The therapy turns more powerful when coupled with educational programs, proper diet, and proper parental care. There are documented clinical improvements strongly advocating stem cell for patients suffering from Autism.

For detailed information on treatment plan, please feel free to contact us on +91-98203 27706 or email us at care@treatmentpossible.com.We will be happy to provide you with case studies. Also we can arrange for free opinion of stem cell consultants. Please visit us on http://www.treatmentpossible.com for more information.

Stem Cell – Hope for patients grounded by Spinal Cord Injury

A pool dive gone wrong, a summersault misjudged, an accident on the road, a mishap at a construction site or a slip on the pavement. We never know when a small miscalculation or a slip can result in a spine injury damaging the Spinal Cord. Only a person suffering from an active to immobile life can understand the pain and helplessness. From centuries Spinal Cord Injury has been considered untreatable. Historic papyrus dating 5000 years ago to modern surgeons; hold on to this fact. But today Stem cell has provided hope in this field of medicine. Surgeons and therapist are hopeful than ever. This hope is based purely on scientific advancement backed by evidence based care.

Spinal Cord is like a cable made-up of numerous bundles of nerves that pass through the spinal channel (vertebrae) in middle of your back. It carries signals from your central nervous system to your body and vice versa. A spinal cord injury damages these nerves and thus the signal carrying capability. IF a person suffers spinal cord injury then his sensory, motor and reflex capacity will be affected. Depending on the severity of the injury on the spinal cord, these abilities will be affected. An injury can be caused by trauma, fall, dislocation of spinal disc or it can be also caused by factors that are not external. Internal factors like arthritis, cancer, inflammation etc.

Fall out of a Spinal Cord Injury

Irrespective of the causes of Spinal Cord Injury, a Spinal Cord Injury can be ‘complete’ or ‘incomplete’.  Some of clinical manifestations of injury caused to the nerves in spinal cord are:

  • Loss of mobility
  • No or lack of sensation
  • Loss of bowel control
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Uncontrollable reflex activity
  • Spasm
  • Pricking or stinging sensation
  • Difficulty to breath and cough

If the Spinal Cord Injury has resulted in paralysis then it will be categorized as Quadriplegia or Paraplegia. In a Quadriplegia case; arms, hands, legs and pelvis are paralyzed. Whereas in case of Paraplegia; body’s trunk, legs and pelvis are paralyzed.

body-paralysis

Conventional Method to Treat a Spinal Cord Injury

Conventional treatment can only provide surgery for the spine to repair the damage caused to it due to internal or external factors. But there is no solution available to repair the damage caused to the nerves in the spinal cord. It is noteworthy that the spinal cord nerve is capable of regenerating after a trauma but it may not regenerate sufficient enough to reverse the damage caused. But a Stem Cell procedure assists the injured area to regenerate enough to minimize and reverse the damage.

Understanding Stem Cell

Our body is made up of trillions of cells. They form our basic body structure, parts and organs. It is also responsible for metabolism giving us energy and is also essential for reproducing. Cells have different functions in our body but before they take on their respective roles, they are part of the stem cell i.e. they originate or ‘stems’ from cells that has still not taken a role or function. These base cells are known as ‘stem cell’. These stems cells can be derived from our body, isolated and then reintroduced/injected into the affected area. These cells can multiply manifold, convert into the desired cell and repair the damaged cell or replace them.

Stem cells can multiply manifold, convert into the desired cell and repair the damaged cell or replace them.

Stem Cell can be derived from Embryo, stem cell, hip bone or fat tissue. Fat tissue is the most preferred source and it is easily available. Fat tissue is favorable as it also has highest density of stem cell. Fat tissue is also called adipose tissue. It is preferably derived from abdomen fat.

How does Stem Cell work for Spinal Cord Injury?

When an injury to the spinal cord occurs, the nerve cells are damaged. The damage cells attract immune cells as it is natural reaction to an injury in the body. But in-case of a Spinal nerve injury, these immune cells destroys not only the injured cells but also healthy cells which causes increased inflammation.

If stem cells are administered within 6 months of injury then it helps in reducing the inflammation which results in avoiding damage to healthy cells. If the stem cell is administered at a chronic stage of Spinal Cord Injury, it will help in improving performance of existing tissue through angiogenesis and Neuro protection.

Neurons and Glial cells carry electrochemical impulses called as action potential. These electrochemical impulses or action potential are required to carry signal from brain to spinal cord to and fro. Stem cell has the ability to repair and replace neurons and glial cells. Further it helps in repair of myelin sheath that surrounds the nerve cells to protect them. This sheath also increases the speed of nerve transmission. Stem cell also repairs tissue and builds new blood supply to the nerves. All of this result in an environment that fosters formation of new nerve cells at the site of damaged nerve cause by Spinal Cord Injury.

Outcome of Stem Cell Procedure for Spinal Cord Injury

Convincing improvement in motor, reflex and sensory capacity of a patient has placed faith of experts on stem cell. The stem cell procedure cannot guarantee 100% cure but the patient’s quality of life improves. He can regain his mobility and can get back on their feet. Post stem cell treatment, patients have shown improvement in standing balance, trunk control, sensation, bladder control and other areas.

PET Scan – Essential for Cancer Diagnosis

PET Scan costs more than USD 2000 in South Africa compared to USD 300 in India.

What is a PET Scan?

PET stands for Positron Emission Tomography. Positron Emission Tomography Scan uses a special dye that has radioactive tracers. These radioactive tracers are injected into body through vein in your arm. Soon organs and tissues in the body absorb the tracer. When highlighted under the PET scanner it shows functioning of organs and tissues. Especially in Case of Cancer it reveals the spread of cancer and shows the metastasized region. PET-Scan also shows reaction of tumor to Chemotherapy treatment. As PET Scan shows functioning of cells, it throws-up image of cells and tissue that has been damaged by Cancer and the spread of Cancer which otherwise is difficult to ascertain.

PET Scan is most commonly used to detect Cancer and its spread in body. It is also used to detect heart problems, brain disorders and other problem with central nervous system.

Your doctor may need you to undergo PET Scan to investigate the oxygen intake, blood flow, metabolism of organs and metabolism of tissues as well.

Availability of PET Scan:

In-spite of being crucial for modern medicine, PET scan facility is not easily available in African countries due to the high cost of investment and maintenance. To our Knowledge PET Scan is available only in South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya in whole of Africa. But the cost of these scans is prohibitive to common man especially those who do not have a medical insurance or medical aid.  A PET Scan in South Africa will cost anywhere upto SA Rand 36156 which means more than USD 2500. The lowest cost available to cash patient after discount was R 25,395 which is USD 1813. It should be noted that this cost is only for the PET Scan and a cancer patient will have to incur other expense for Oncologist consultation. That’s the start of expenditure for cancer treatment which can mean long term expenditure.

If you are to compare the cost with Indian facility then the saving is huge. A PET in India along with Oncologist consultation will cost a patient USD 300. The difference is vast. The quality and accuracy of Indian facility is equally good to any world class facility in USA if not superior. For that matter many of Indian hospitals offering this facility are accredited by JCI International which is a USA based certification body that sets the highest level of clinical standard in global healthcare. Being accredited by JCI itself assures of quality. But at the same time Indian healthcare system is more robust due to the high volume of cases thanks to the population. This and other factors have ensured that these hospitals provide world class US approved diagnostic facility and treatment at fraction of the cost in USA or South Africa.

If a patient has to come to India for a complete oncology examination then his entire cost of diagnose, Oncologist consultation, flight, stay and future treatment plan will cost USD 1000 to 1200. Not to mention that further treatment requirement will also be at fraction of cost compared to South Africa. This piece of information is crucial not only to patients that travel to South Africa from rest of Africa but also to patients in South Africa who are not covered by Medical insurance or a medical aid.

You can contact Treatment Possible for this special package of PET Scan and Onco Consultation @USD 300. You will have to be in India for 2 days only.

Please note this diagnostic scan is required only if your treating doctor feels you need to evaluate yourself for Cancer based on manifested symptoms. Please spread the word. You may end up helping Cancer patient needing low cost treatment options.

Hip Replacement Surgery in India

Overview – Total Hip Replacement

A patient suffering from condition of Hip in which the patient has pain in hip. This may cause limitation in movement, walking and other routine activity. In a Total Hip Replacement, the painful Hip joint is removed and replaced an artificial Hip joint made of metal and plastic component. Total Hip Replacement relieves pain and makes walking and movement of Hip easier.

Who Needs Total Hip Replacement?

Hip pain and disability can be caused by many reasons but primary reason is arthritis which also is related to ageing degeneration. Some of the causes of Hip diseases are:

  • Osteoarthritis: This is a degeneration disease usually occurring to people above 50 years or older. The cartilage that’s cushions the Hip bone wears away. This causes the bones to rub against each other causing pain and stiffness. Osteoarthritis can also develop or be accelerated by development irregularities during childhood.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: In this disease, Synovial membrane becomes inflamed and thickened. It is an autoimmune disease. This chronic inflammation can damage the cartilage this causing pain and stiffness in the hip thus limiting ability to carry out normal activity. It is also called as inflammatory arthritis and is a common type of group disorder.
  • Trauma: If a Hip was injured in a trauma or accident, the cartilage can be damaged or the hip joints can be deformed post trauma. It can cause pain and stiffness of Hip area.
  • Avascular Necrosis: An injury to the hip or hip area may limit blood supply to the femoral head. Due to lack of blood supply to this area, the surface of the bone may start to erode or collapse resulting in arthritis. This is also called as Osteonecrosis. Patient including children suffering from Sickle Cell may develop Avascular Necrosis necessitating Hip Surgery or other joint surgery.
  • Childhood Hip Disease: Childhood hip disease are treatable but later in their life it may cause arthritis. This happens as the disease may have caused abnormality in growth and Hip Joint may be affected. Avascular Necrosis caused by Sickle cell can necessitate Hip Replacement Surgery.

You maybe be suffering from any of the above disease or condition but it may not necessarily required Total Hip Replacement. However, if the Hip pain limits your everyday activity, causes high degree of pain even while resting then you should consider Total Hip Replacement. Please send your medical reports and X-Ray for a free Joint Specialist Opinion.

Total Hip Replacement Procedure: The cartilage would have worn out causing friction between bone joints. This friction also damages the bone. During the surgery the surgeon will cut at the side of hip to gain access to hip joint. After that the ball portion of the thighbone is removed by cutting the thighbone. After that artificial joint is attached using cement. After that the surgeon prepared the surface of hipbone by removing the damaged cartilage and attaches the replacement socket to the hipbone. The new ball part of the thighbone is then inserted into the socket part of the hip.

In India Surgeon’s use recent technique to minimize the incision. This will reduce blood loss, enable quicker recovery and minimize pain. If you are looking for a bloodless Total Knee Replacement then we can help you with surgeons trained to carry our bloodless surgery.

Recovery after Total Hip Replacement: After surgery you will be moved to recovery room for few hours after which you will be moved to your room. Your physiotherapist will start moving your Hip from next day and after that you will be able to start exercise for quicker recovery.  You will be able to function normally within 1 to 2 months varying on the pace of your recovery. But you will be able to get back to your normal routine which will give you freedom to be mobile.

UNDERSTANDING BONE MARROW TRANSPLANT

What Is Sickle Cell Disease?

Sickle-cell disease (SCD), also known as sickle-cell anaemia (SCA), is a hereditary blood disorder, caused by an abnormality in the oxygen-carrying protein haemoglobin found in red blood cells. This leads to a propensity for the cells to assume an abnormal, rigid, sickle-like shape under certain circumstances. Sickle-cell disease is associated with a number of acute and chronic health problems, such as severe infections, attacks of severe pain (“sickle-cell crisis”), stroke, and an increased risk of death. The terms “sickle-cell crisis” or “sickling crisis” may be used to describe several independent acute conditions occurring in patients with SCD. SCD results in anemia and crises that could be of many types including the vaso-occlusive crisis, aplastic crisis, sequestration crisis, haemolytic crisis, and others. Most episodes of sickle-cell crises last between FIve and seven days. Although infection, dehydration, and acidosis (all of which favor sickling) can act as triggers, in most instances, no predisposing cause is identifieded.Quality Healthcare made Affordable

Cause of Sickle Cell Disease?

Sickle-cell disease occurs when a person inherits two abnormal copies of the haemoglobin gene, one from each parent. Several subtypes exist, depending on the exact mutation in each haemoglobin gene. A person with a single abnormal copy does not experience symptoms and is said to have sickle-cell trait. Such people are also referred to as carriers.

Symptoms of Sickle Cell Disease

  • Fatigue and Anemia
  • Pain Crises Dactylitis (swelling and inammation of the hands and/or feet) and Arthritis
  • Bacterial Infections
  • Splenic Sequestration (sudden pooling of blood in the spleen) and Liver Congestion
  • Lung and Heart Injury
  • Leg Ulcers
  • Aseptic Necrosis and Bone Infarcts (death of portions of bone)
  • Eye Damage
  • Other Features

Some features of sickle cell anemia, such as fatigue, anemia, pain crises, and bone infarcts can occur at any age. Many features typically occur in certain age groups. Sickle cell anemia usually rst presents in the rst year of life. Infants and younger children can suer with fever, abdominal pain, pneumococcal bacterial infections, painful swellings of the hands and feet (dactylitis), and splenic sequestration. Adolescents and young adults more commonly develop leg ulcers, aseptic necrosis, and eye damage. Symptoms in adult typically are intermittent pain episodes due to injury of bone, muscle, or internal organs.

Treatment of Sickle Cell Disease

Though Medical management and blood transfusion is looked at managing symptoms of Sickle Cell Disease, Bone Marrow Treatment (BMT) is the only proven eective treatment which can be called as a cure for Sickle Cell Disease. BMT treatment requires a donor who is willing to donate. Ideally, a twin family member (syngeneic) or close relative (allogeneic) would donate the bone marrow necessary for transplantation.

Cost of Bone Marrow Treatment:

 The cost of BMT is very high in advanced countries. In USA, Bone Marrow Transplant will cost (autologous): USD 360,000. Bone Marrow (allogeneic):USD 800,000.

But Treatment Possible through its association through Hospitals in India arranges the same BMT ranging from USD 25000 to USD 30000.

Valvuloplasty Procedure in India

Valvuloplasty:

The dilation/widening of a narrow cardiac valve usually performed on Mitral, Aortic or Pulmonary.

In a Valvuloplasty procedure, a small, narrow, hollow tube known as catheter is performed to open a stenotic (stiff) heart valve and is advanced from a blood vessel in the groin through the aorta into the heart. Once the catheter is placed in the valve to be opened, contrast dye will be injected into the valve in order to look at the area, a large balloon at the tip of the catheter is inflated until the leaflets (flaps) of the valve are opened, then the balloon is deflated and the catheter is removed. The catheter insertion site may be closed with a closure device that uses collagen to seal the opening in the artery, by the use of sutures, or by applying manual pressure over the area to keep the blood vessel from bleeding. Once the bleeding has stopped, a very tight bandage will be placed on the site.

Who needs the Valvuloplasty Procedure? :

  • Sometimes, to open a stiff heart valve requirement of Valvuloplasty procedure is fulfilled.
  • In order to keep a regular blood flow and functioning of the valves between each of the heart’s pumping chambers, valvuloplasty procedure is needed.

Outcome of Valvuloplasty Procedure:

  • Valvuloplasty bridges the time gap between before the Heart Valve Replacement Surgery.
  • Valvuloplasty restores a regular blood flow with the proper functioning of the valves.
  • The mortality rate of Valvuloplasty procedure is extremely Low.

Recovery Time from Valvuloplasty Procedure:

  • Following Valvuloplasty, you will be sent to the recovery room where your vital signs will be monitored.
  • If the insertion done in the groin, you will not be allowed to bend your leg for several hours.
