Bengaluru Hospital saves Pakistani heart patient


Bengaluru: A complicated heart surgery was performed on a 39-year-old Pakistani heart patient at a private hospital here and saved him from a life-threatening situation, a hospital official said on Friday.

Jain Institute of Vascular Sciences (Jivas) director and vascular surgeon K.R. Suresh expressed the patient’s details in a statement today.

Though Anwar was initially treated in his native city (Karachi) for back and chest pain in 2008, he had a history of hypertension, jeopardizing his young life,

A CT scan, however, revealed Anwar’s heart had an artery that supplies blood to vital organs split into two, affecting the blood supply to other parts of the body.

He (Anwar) was given the option of going to the US or Bengaluru. He came to us on November 9 for treatment as his life was at stake, as the scan confirmed a spiral split in the blood supply, said Suresh.

The split involved both arteries supplying the intestines and kidneys were shrunken from lack of blood supply.

A team of doctors, including Vivekananda, Visnu and Sumanth Raj performed the surgery after providing an alternate route for supplying blood to the intestines and fix a stent graft to prevent blood leaking.

In the first stage, a bypass was made to intestines and liver with an artificial graft from left leg’s arteries. Anwar recovered well to have a stent graft inserted in a week through a small incision in the right groin, said Suresh.

Recovering from a life-saving surgery swiftly, Anwar is having a normal diet, taking long walks and raring to return home soon.

Jivas is part of the Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain Hospital here.

Dr Hariprasad, Ayurveda Expert, The Himalaya Drug Company, recommends the following tips to help women become healthier without having to take too much time out of their busy schedule.

Get enough sleep: The function of sleep is to not only relax the body, but also rest and restore the mind. It is necessary to heal and repair your heart and blood vessels. While you can function for a while without getting the necessary amount of sleep every day, it will eventually take a toll on you. Commit to sleeping a minimum of seven hours a day while aiming for eight, and you will feel yourself getting healthier and happier in a short amount of time. This will help you achieve both mental and physical wellness, and your mind and body will be at ease.

Keep up energy levels: Use an energy booster like chyavanaprasha for that extra push you need to achieve your daily goals. Chyavanaprasha, which has amalaki (Indian gooseberry), gives that supplementary dose of antioxidants, in addition to boosting your energy levels. Along with this, try quick exercises like stretching and jogging to keep those endorphins flowing.

Practice preventive care: Long-term wellness is a better approach than seeking short-term solutions for the problem at hand. Having Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) can help you practice preventive care by building your immunity. According to Ayurveda texts and modern research, Guduchi increases immunity against infections by increasing the effectiveness of disease-fighting white blood cells. These fight infections and influence various other immune effector cells, ensuring early recovery. Including Guduchi in your daily diet will help increase the body’s resistance to stress and illness. It can help reduce the chances of facing health problems altogether, rather than simply resorting to curative measures when it arises.

Set aside some me-time: Take some time out for yourself during the day to just breathe and reflect on your day. You can do this in a structured manner using yoga and meditation techniques, but the important part is to consistently carve time out from your day for yourself. Setting aside even 10 minutes will help you relax and feel more in control of your day. You will feel the frustrations of your day melt away, leaving you to face the rest of the day with a calmer mind and a more positive outlook. IANS
