2 -year old – girl treated successfully for lower back Spondylolisthesis by Kauvery hospital

 

• The condition in the lumbar region of spine is very rare among children

• A Spondylolisthesisin the lower back causes pain thus creating difficulty in mobility

• The youngest case reported so far worldwide was of a 3-year-old child

Chennai, 20thJanuary 2021: Spondylolisthesis in the lower spine or lower back is where there is an slip of one vertebrae over the other causing Spinal Cord and Nerve Root Compression. This is usually caused due to trauma, degeneration or congenital problems. This condition is very common in adolescence, aging adults but very rare in children causing severe symptoms.

Kauvery Hospital, one of the leading healthcare chains in Tamil Nadu successfully treated a 2-year-old girl who was diagnosed with Spondylolisthesis of the L5-S1 vertebra – a complete slippage of one vertebra over the other. ‘The girl developed sudden back and leg pain, and she was unable to move or walk. Slowly, there was a lump that developed on her lower back and she was immediately taken to a Local hospital for diagnosis. The child had MRI scan and afterfew investigations it was clearly confirmed that the child had severe spinal cord and nerve compression and needed surgery,” said Dr G Balamurali, Head of Department Spine Surgery, Kauvery Hospital.

This condition is very rare among children and there is no documented medical literature that details a treatment plan for this disorder. Only a few cases have been treated successfully at this age. “The challenges in such a young age are the undeveloped soft bones.The treatment had excellent results, with the child’s deformity precisely corrected. There were no further complaints of back or leg pain. 2 months after the surgery, the child was able to walk straight and resume her normal activities.” adds Dr Balamurali.

 

The child belonged to the fishermen community and her family could not afford the surgery. Hence various sources of funding were raised through the Thalirgal project an initiative of Rotary Club of Madras North, Tamil Nadu Government, Kauvery Hospital and some outside donors through crowd funding helped to perform the surgery.

 

Speaking on the uniqueness of case, Dr Manivannan Selvaraj, Founder & Managing Director Kauvery Hospital said, “So far, the youngest case with a similar diagnosis reported worldwide was of a 3-year-old child, and this treatment by Kauvery Hospital on a 2- year -old child is the first case reported worldwide. I congratulate DrBalamurali and team for successfully treating the child and relieve her from the agony of immobility.”

Ashirwad” program for senior citizens launched by Kauvery Hospital

Ashirwad” program for senior citizens launched by Kauvery Hospital

 

– The program was launched by Padma Shri DrSirkazhi G Sivachidambaram

– The program aims to cover a multidisciplinary healthcare service for our senior citizens

– It will help the senior citizens to overcome the challenges faced by COVID-19 & avail a hassle free health service.

 

Chennai, 21st December 2020:

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has paved way for many challenges in healthcare, and one such challenge has been healthcare for senior citizens. Owing to the nature of pandemic, senior citizens were locked up at homes, without any contact from outside world and regular checkups were also compromised. A lot of cases were reported in the last few months, and many were taken to health care centers for emergency situations.

 

This being the scenario, Kauvery Hospital Chennai, one of the leading healthcare in Tamil Nadu, launched the KauveryAshirwad Program, a multispecialty geriatric care initiative exclusively designed for senior citizens. The program includes a wide range of health services and checkups such as Diet counseling, eye checkups, dental care, Physiotherapy sessions, elder safe home assessment, ambulance services and home delivery of medicines. Apart from these it also covers mobile clinics or health checkups at the comforts of their home for senior citizens thus avoiding frequent hospital visits.

 

Prof DrS Sivakumar, Senior Consultant Geriatrics ,Kauvery Hospital says , “ Regular monitoring of health for people above the age of 60 becomes mandatory. Especially those with complaints of blood pressure, diabetes, and heart ailments need to keep their vitals in check at regular intervals. Over the last 6 months,uncontrolled diabetes and blood pressure levels has increased the mortality by 30- 50% among senior citizens, especially due to the pandemic.While some have the practice of doing a visit to the hospital for general checkups, the pandemic has stopped them from doing the same. We have identified this gap in the senior citizen group and this program will help them to gain access to comprehensive healthcare.”

 

The launch also had Dr Kavitha Sundaravadanam, Senior Family Phyisican , Kauvery Hospital and K Way- Editor who spoke about how the families can make use of this program provide care and safety for the elderly , while Dr Oviya Elango Consultant Geriatrics, Kauvery Hospital highlighted on the concept of mobile clinics exclusively for senior citizens under the program.

 

Speaking on the launch of the program Dr Aravindan Selvaraj, Executive director, Kauvery hospitals said, “Senior citizens in general have their own challenges in meeting their healthcare needs. And for those who do not stay with their families, it becomes more complicated to attend to their medical emergencies or needs. The lockdown phase has reinforced the need for special healthcare services for the elderly, minimizing their waiting time at hospitals, regular monitoring of their health and comprehensive recommendation for their healthy living. We believe this program will benefit the senior citizens at large, thereby helping them overcome challenges they face on a day to day basis. This program also highlights our commitment towards the healthcare for all.”

 

 

The program will also assist families in planning a safe environment for the eldery at homes, and also provide them with a comprehensive health report. Speaking about the initiative Padma Shri Dr Sirkazhi G Sivachidambaram said, “In today’s busy world, families find it challenging to keep a check on the health of senior citizens at their households. This program is a timely initiative that will help alot of senior citizens who are finding it tough to have regular checkups at hospitals and also assist families in managing the health of the elders at home. I appreciate the team at KauveryHospital for curating this program for the older section of the society.”

 

The annual package which costs INR 7500, includes four free consultations by geriatricians , two nursing home assessments , discounts on outpatient pharmacies, OP lab and radiology services.

Dr. C Vijaya Baskar, Hon’ble Minister for Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of Tamil Nadu Inaugurates ‘BONDS’ Centre of Excellence, a first of its kind center dedicated to Dystonia & Spasticity movement disorders at SIMS Hospital, Vadapalani

 

Chennai, October 29, 2020

 

SIMS Hospital (SRM Institutes for Medical Science) one of the leading quaternary care super specialty hospital in Chennai, announced today, the launch of BONDS, (BOtulinum ToxiN in Dystonia & Spasticity), a first of its kind centre in Chennai with focused approach to the treatment of movement disorders like Dystonia and Spasticity (also for Stroke Rehabilitation) using Botulinum Toxin injection at its Vadapalani facility in Chennai.

 

Inaugurated by Dr. C Vijaya Baskar– Hon. Minister for Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of Tamil Nadu¸ in the presence of Shri. Ravi Pachamuthu – SRM Group, and other dignitaries, the Center of excellence prides of a state-of-the-art facility, complete with a vibrant and skilled team of doctors to handle neurological emergencies in addition to serving chronic patients. The Center is well equipped to offer wide spectrum of services to treat patients affected by various movement disorders including stroke, dystonia, spasticity and neuromuscular ailments.

 

Expressing his delight about the launch, Shri. Ravi Pachamoothoo, Chairman, SRM Group, said, “SIMS has always been a proponent of evidence based clinical innovations. ‘BONDS’ Clinic marks yet another milestone in this journey and I congratulate Dr. Meenakshisundarm and his team for setting-up this center of excellence, which I am sure, will bring in a significant relief to the people with movement disorders”.

 

“With such finest clinical talents and resources available in-house, who are always ready to adopt and embrace the latest and highly advanced medical practices, both, effectively and efficiently, we at SIMS will continue to deliver high rates of successful clinical treatments for our patients” he added.

 

An equally elated, Dr. U. Meenakshisundaram, the Director of the Neurology Department at SIMS Hospital, who is also the present Secretary of the Movement Disorders Society of India and an Executive Committee member of the Indian Academy of Neurology, said, “Clinical research findings have revealed that over last few years the use of Botulinum toxin has shown great results in the treatment of movement disorders and when combined with a proper physiotherapy regimen, people with these conditions recover faster and return to a near-normal life much quickly. Also, administering Botulinum Toxin Injection is a skilled procedure and is done by skilled set of experienced practitioners, complete with progressive monitoring on the patient’s improvement.

 

“The treatment is done as an outpatient procedure and spans between 3 to 6 months duration with minimal side effects caused due to the weakening of muscles, which are mostly reversible depending on the patient’s medical condition and their response to the treatment”, Dr. Meenakshisundaram added.

 

A case reference of a successful treatment:

An Indian student in his 20s developed spastic weakness in his left hand and leg due to an infarct in the brain resulting from sudden pulmonary thromboembolism during a skiing accident in South Korea. He was initially treated at a hospital in Japan; after which he was referred to SIMS Hospital for further management of his spasticity. He was evaluated and injected with Botulinum toxin and two weeks later, he had significant relief from the spasticity, thus substantially reducing his disability.

 

About Botulinum:

Botulinum toxin is like the “villain who turned hero”. It is produced by the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. Ingestion of this toxin can lead to the deadly disease called botulism. It basically paralyses muscles (and some secretory activity). Science has made use of this feature and has brought in the concept of “controlled paralysis”, wherein only the abnormally excessive unwanted activity is reduced while retaining and supporting meaningful muscle activity.

 

Although there are many types of toxins produced, only types A and B are used in medical practice (In India, we have only type A available as of now). Neurons or nerve cells communicate with one other and with muscle and other organs through chemicals called neurotransmitters. Botulinum toxin primarily acts by blocking the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. By this way, it helps in relieving unwanted, excessive muscle contraction. In this way, it has been applied to a wide variety of conditions including for cosmetic purposes. In neurology, it is primarily used in dystonias and spasticity apart from conditions such as chronic migraine, hyperhidrosis (increased sweating) and sialorrhea (increased drooling of saliva).

 

About Dystonia:

Dystonias are a group of disorders which cause abnormal posturing or movements of a body part(s) because some muscle groups go into abnormal, asynchronous contraction. They cause significant disability and discomfort to the sufferers and are in general not very responsive to treatment with oral medications. A common type is the task-specific dystonia where it occurs only with specific tasks such as writing (writer’s cramps), playing musical instruments (such as Piano, Guitar, Mridangam etc.) playing golf or billiards, or counting currency notes.

 

About Spasticity:

Spasticity is abnormal stiffness that happens in diseases of the brain and/or spinal cord. The stiffness can be pronounced and can cause considerable difficulty in activities of daily living. It can happen in children due to cerebral palsy and other disorders. A common setting is post-stroke spasticity wherein the paralysed limb(s) become stiff over time and cause impediments to further recovery.

Successful entrepreneur, Mr R.B.Sivakumar hails from a humble farming family and community. But his education, zeal and exploration of career opportunities led to diversifying and becoming a reputed Engineering Component Manufacturer.

 

He successfully founded Vignesh Polymers, a key component manufacturing firm for category leaders in the automobile and consumer electronics sector. Today he takes the credit for turning it into a 200 crore plus turnover brand.

 

However, the burning desire was to always give something concrete back to his farming community. His reverence for farming and his sincere appreciation for the hard toil of farmers and their plight, buoyed him to start “Sowkea Agro”

 

Mr. R.B. Sivakumar, speaking at the launch said, “Tender Springz is an innovative option of a healthy new age cold drink. Ease and convenience is desired by a younger generation. Tender Springz is part of Sowkea Agro’s philosophy of protecting the farmers’ interests, restoring their pride, ensuring fair compensation and a sustained income for their efforts. I strongly advocate responsible sourcing and fair farmer compensation. The consumer should have access to a healthier choice of food and beverages.”
