CATARACT

cataract `111

DEFINITION

A cataract is a dense , cloudy area that forms in the lens of the eye. A cataract begins when proteins in the eye form clumps that prevent the lens from sending clear images to the retina. The retina works by converting the light that comes through the lens into signals. It sends the signals to the optic neve which carries them into the brain

Cataract develops slowly and eventually interferes with your vision. Cataracts are common in older people

SYMPTOMS

  • blurry vision
  • trouble seeing at night
  • seeing colors as faded
  • increased sensitivity to glare
  • halos surrounding lights
  • double vision in the affected eye
  • a need for frequent changes in prescription glasses

CAUSES

  • an over production of oxidants which are oxygen molecules that been chemically altered due to normal daily life
  • smoking
  • ultra violet  radiation
  • the long term usage of steroids and other medications
  • certain diseases such ass diabetes
  • trauma
  • radiation therapy

TREATMENT OF CATARACT

SURGERY: It is recommended when cataracts prevent you from going about your daily activities such as reading  or driving . Its also performed when cataract interfere with the treatments of other eye problems’

One surgical method known as phaco-emulsification involves the use of ultra sound waves to break the lens apart and remove the pieces

Extra capsular surgery involves removing the cloudy part of the lens through a long incision in the cornea .After  surgery  an artificial intra ocular lens is placed where the natural lens was. Cataract surgery   usually an out patient procedure  takes an hour or less to perform. First your doctor will place eye drops in your eye to dilate your pupil . You will receive local anesthesia to numb the area and you may be given a sedative to help you relax

Surgical methods used to remove cataracts include , using ultra sound probe to break up the lens for removal or making an incision in the eye and removing the lens in one piece

After the removal of the cataract the artificial lens is implanted into the empty lens capsule

SINUSITIS

sinusitis 2

A condition in which cavities around the nasal passages become inflamed .Sinuses are hollow spaces within the bones between your eyes, behind your cheekbones and in your forehead. They make mucus which keeps the inside of your nose moist. That in turn helps to protect against dust , allergens and pollutants. Healthy sinuses are filled with air , But when they become blocked and filled with fluid , germs can grow and cause an infection

TYPES

  • Acute sinusitis – usually start with cold like symptoms such as runny , stuffy nose and facial pain . It may start suddenly and last 2-4 weeks
  • Sub acute sinusitis – usually last 4-12 weeks
  • Chronic sinusitis- usually symptoms last 12 weeks or longer
  • Recurrent sinusitis – happens  several times a year

CAUSES

  • Swelling inside the nose like from common cold
  • Blood drainage ducts
  • Structural differences that narrow those ducts
  • Nasal ducts
  • Immune system deficiencies or meditation that suppress the immune system
  • Allergies
  • Pacifiers
  • Drinking water while lying on back

SYMPTOMS

  • Sinus headache
  • Facial tenderness
  • Pressure or pain in sinuses
  • Fever
  • Cloudy discolored nasal or postnasal drainage
  • Feeling of nasal stiffness
  • Sore throat Cough
  • Facial swelling
  • Pus like nasal discharge
  • Reduced sense of smell and taste

TENNIS ELBOW

tennis elbow

An irritation of the tissue connecting the forearm muscle to the elbow .Tennis elbow can be caused by respective wrist and arm motions

CAUSES

Tennis elbow usually develops over time. Repetitive motions like gripping a racket during a swing can strain the muscles and put too much stress on the tendons .That constant tugging can eventually cause microscopic tears in the tissue. Tennis elbow might result from

  • Tennis
  • Racquet ball
  • Squash
  • Fencing
  • Weight lifting

It can also affect people with jobs or hobbies that require repetitive arm movements or gripping such as

  • Carpentry
  • Typing
  • Carpentry
  • Raking
  • Knitting

SYMPTOMS

Symptoms include pain and tiredness in the bony knob on the outside of your elbow .This knob is where the injured tendons connect to the bone. The pain may also radiate into the upper or lower arm. Although the damage is in the elbow you are likely to hurt when doing things with  your hands

Tennis elbow may cause the most pain when you

  • Lift something
  • Make a fist or grip an object such as a tennis racket
  • Open a door or shake hands
  • Raise your hand or straighten your wrist
  • Tennis elbow is similar to another condition called golfers elbow which affects  the tendons on the inside of elbow

TREATMENT

The good news about treatment is that usually tennis elbow will heal on its own. Types of treatment that help are

  • Icing the elbow to reduce pain and swelling.
  • Using an elbow strap to protect the injured tendon from further strain
  • Taking internal medicines
  • Performing range of motion exercises to reduce stiffness and increase flexibility
  • Getting physical therapy to strengthen and stretch the muscles

LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY

laproscopic surgery 11

INTRODUCTION

Laparoscopic surgery is a surgical technique in which short, narrow tubes ( trocars)  are inserted into the abdomen through small ( less than one centimeter ) incisions . Through these trochars long narrow instruments to manipulate, cut and see tissue

ADVANTAGE

In patients terms, laparoscopic surgery has the advantages of avoiding large open wounds or incisions and thus of decreasing blood loss , pain and discomfort . Patients have fewer  unwanted effects from analgesia because less analgesia is required .The fine instruments are less apt to cause tissue trauma and blood loss. Also it has better quality of life outcomes than open surgery for cholecystectomy, splenectomy and esophageal surgery. However open hernioplasty has at least as good if not better , health status outcomes than laparoscopic repair

DISADVANTAGES

It can take longer to perform than open surgery ( if not performed with right technique) . The  longer time under anesthesia may increase the risk of complication. Sometimes complications do not appear right away but occurs few days to few weeks after surgery

SIDE EFFECTS

  • Fever or chills
  • Abdominal pain that becomes more intense over time
  • Redness , swelling , bleeding or drainage at the incision sites
  • continuous nausea or vomiting
  • Persistent cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Inability to urinate
  • Lightheadness

HOW IS LAPAROSCOPY PERFORMED ?

It is usually done as an outpatient procedure. General anesthesia is given as intravenous line in one of your veins. In some cases  local anesthesia is also used. During laparoscopy, the surgeon makes an incision below your belly button and then inserts a small tube called a cannula. The cannula is used to inflate your abdomen with carbon dioxide gas. This gas allows your doctor to see your   abdominal organs more clearly. Once abdomen is inflated , the surgeon inserts the laparoscope through the incision. The camera attached to the laparoscope displays the images on a screen, allowing your organs to be viewed in real time. Generally you get from one to four  incisions  that are each between 1 and 2 centimeters in length. These incisions allow other instruments to be inserted . After the procedure is done , the instruments are removed. Your incisions are  then closed with stitches or surgical staples
