Biggest Cardiology Stories of 2012 from Heart Wire

Interventional cardiology

  • Results of the FREEDOM trial regarding the treatment of diabetic patients with multivessel disease, as well as the results of the FAME II trial on the importance of ischemic documentation on outcomes after PCI.
  • IABP SHOCK II trial, which had interesting insights with regard to how we treat cardiogenic-shock patients with PCI and the role of balloon-pump support in such cases.
  • In 2013, the initiation of a MitraClip trial in inoperable patients will reenergize the subject of percutaneous mitral-valve repair.
  • More durability data for the transcatheter aortic-valve technique with the results of the CoreValve trial as well as results in intermediate-risk patients treated with the Edwards device.
  • Results of the PARTNER II using the next-generation Sapien XT valve and lower-profile Novoflex delivery system (Edwards Lifesciences) are awaited.
  • The nonoperative patients in PARTNER II B are extremely high risk, but the randomized cohort, where patients are randomly assigned to surgical- or transcatheter-valve replacement, includes intermediate-risk patients with an STS score of 4 or higher. By contrast, in PARTNER I A, the average STS score was 11/12. That's the biggest thing on the horizon in 2013.

24x7 mental health helpline from January in Mumbai

MUMBAI: The BMC's 24x7 mental health helpline will be operational from January. The helpline is aimed at counselling patients. It will also refer patients requiring medical help to civic hospitals. In 2010, the BMC had announced that it will launch the 'Life is Beautiful' helpline; however, the plan never took off due to administrative delay. But now, with the rising number of mental health cases, the plan has been revived. Head of psychiatry department at KEM hospital Dr Shubhangi Parkar will head the project and is finalizing the details. Additional municipal commissioner Manisha Mhaiskar said counsellors will be hired to work in three shifts. The helpline will also be linked to the police control room, so that cops can be informed in case of an emergency. "We will target those in the vulnerable category and conduct seminars for them. We have planned 24 seminars in the next year," said Mhaiskar. The proposal has got an approval from civic chief Sitaram Kunte and the toll-free number is being finalized. According to statistics, while one out of five people need counselling at least once in their lives, about 6% need medications. Statistics further show that 20% Indians need counselling at some point of their lives. One per cent of the population suffers from serious mental health disorders, while 5%-10% Indians suffer from moderate disorders. Prevalence of mental health issues ranges from 10 to as many as 370 people per 1,000 in various parts of the country. (Source: TOI, Dec 24, 2012)

    Infertility Update (Dr Kaberi Banerjee, IVF expert, New Delhi)

What is sexual dysfunction?

Doctors divide normal sexual function into 3 phases: desire (you want to have sex), arousal (your body undergoes the physical changes that allow you to have sex), and orgasm. Sexual dysfunction occurs when your health, your relationship, or your ideas about sex cause problems in any of these phases. This is true for men and women.

    An Inspirational Story

Christmas miracle – real story!

This is a real Christmas miracle story, happened in December 1997 in Wisconsin, USA. A little girl named Sarah had leukemia and was not expected to live to see Christmas. Her brother and grandmother went to the mall to ask Mark Leonard who was a professional Santa Claus to visit the hospital to give Sarah the gift of hope through encouragement and prayer. A year later Sarah surprised Santa by showing up at the mall where he worked. Here goes the story. A little boy and his grandmother came to see Santa at The Mayfair Mall in Wisconsin. The child climbed up on Santa’s lap, holding a picture of a little girl. “Who is this?” – asked Santa, smiling. “Your friend? Your sister?”

“Yes, Santa.” – He replied. “My sister, Sarah, who is very sick.” – he said sadly. Santa glanced over at the grandmother who was waiting nearby and saw her dabbing her eyes with a tissue. “She wanted to come with me to see you, oh, so very much, Santa!” – the child exclaimed. “She misses you.” – he added softly.

Santa tried to be cheerful and encouraged a smile to the boy’s face, asking him what he wanted Santa to bring him for Christmas. When they finished their visit, the grandmother came over to help the child off his lap, and started to say something to Santa, but halted.

“What is it?” – Santa asked warmly. “Well, I know it’s really too much to ask you, Santa, but ..” – the old woman began, shooing her grandson over to one of Santa’s elves to collect the little gift which Santa gave all his young visitors.

“The girl in the photograph… my granddaughter well, you see … she has leukemia and isn’t expected to make it even through the holidays.” – she said through tear-filled eyes. “Is there anyway, Santa, any possible way that you could come see Sarah? That’s all she’s asked for, for Christmas, is to see Santa.”

Santa blinked and swallowed hard and told the woman to leave information with his elves as to where Sarah was, and he would see what he could do. Santa thought of little else the rest of that afternoon. He knew what he had to do. “What if it were MY child lying in that hospital bed, dying?” – he thought with a sinking heart, “This is the least I can do.”

When Santa finished visiting with all the boys and girls that evening, he retrieved from his helper the name of the hospital where Sarah was staying. He asked Rick, the assistant location manager how to get to Children’s Hospital. “Why?” – Rick asked, with a puzzled look on his face. Santa relayed to him the conversation with Sarah’s grandmother earlier that day.

“Common….I’ll take you there.” – Rick said softly. Rick drove them to the hospital and came inside with Santa. They found out which room Sarah was in. A pale Rick said he would wait out in the hall. Santa quietly peeked into the room through the half-closed door and saw little Sarah on the bed.

The room was full of what appeared to be her family; there was the grandmother and the girl’s brother he had met earlier that day. A woman whom he guessed was Sarah’s mother stood by the bed, gently pushing Sarah’s thin hair off her forehead.

And another woman who he discovered later was Sarah’s aunt, sat in a chair near the bed with a weary, sad look on her face. They were talking quietly, and Santa could sense the warmth and closeness of the family, and their love and concern for Sarah. Taking a deep breath, and forcing a smile on his face, Santa entered the room, bellowing a hearty, “Ho, ho, ho!”

“Santa!” – shrieked little Sarah weakly, as she tried to escape her bed to run to him. Santa rushed to her side and gave her a warm hug. A child the tender age of his own son — 9 years old — gazed up at him with wonder and excitement.

Her skin was pale and her short tresses bore telltale bald patches from the effects of chemotherapy. But all he saw when he looked at her was a pair of huge, blue eyes. His heart melted, and he had to force himself to choke back tears. Though his eyes were riveted upon Sarah’s face, he could hear the gasps and quiet sobbing of the women in the room.

As he and Sarah began talking, the family crept quietly to the bedside one by one, squeezing Santa’s shoulder or his hand gratefully, and whispering “Thank you” as they gazed sincerely at him with shining eyes.

Santa and Sarah talked and talked, and she told him excitedly all the toys she wanted for Christmas, assuring him she’d been a very good girl that year.

As their time together dwindled, Santa felt led in his spirit to pray for Sarah, and asked for permission from the girl’s mother. She nodded in agreement and the entire family circled around Sarah’s bed, holding hands. Santa looked intensely at Sarah and asked her if she believed in angels, “Oh, yes, Santa… I do!” – she exclaimed.

“Well, I’m going to ask that angels watch over you.” – he said. Laying one hand on the child’s head, Santa closed his eyes and prayed. He asked that God touch little Sarah, and heal her body from this disease. He asked that angels minister to her, watch and keep her. And when he finished praying, still with eyes closed, he started singing, softly, “Silent Night, Holy Night…. all is calm, all is bright…” The family joined in, still holding hands, smiling at Sarah, and crying tears of hope, tears of joy for this moment, as Sarah beamed at them all. When the song ended, Santa sat on the side of the bed again and held Sarah’s frail, small hands in his own.

“Now, Sarah,” – he said authoritatively, “you have a job to do, and that is to concentrate on getting well. I want you to have fun playing with your friends this summer, and I expect to see you at my house at Mayfair Mall this time next year!” He knew it was risky proclaiming that to this little girl who had terminal cancer, but he ‘had’ to. He had to give her the greatest gift he could — not dolls or games or toys — but the gift of HOPE.

“Yes, Santa!” – Sarah exclaimed, her eyes bright. He leaned down and kissed her on the forehead and left the room. Out in the hall, the minute Santa’s eyes met Rick’s, a look passed between them and they wept unashamed. Sarah’s mother and grandmother slipped out of the room quickly and rushed to Santa’s side to thank him.

“My only child is the same age as Sarah.” – he explained quietly. “This is the least I could do.” They nodded with understanding and hugged him.

One year later, Santa Mark was again back on the set in Milwaukee for his six-week, seasonal job which he so loves to do. Several weeks went by and then one day a child came up to sit on his lap. “Hi, Santa! Remember me?!”

“Of course, I do.” – Santa proclaimed (as he always does), smiling down at her. After all, the secret to being a ‘good’ Santa is to always make each child feel as if they are the ‘only’ child in the world at that moment. “You came to see me in the hospital last year!” Santa’s jaw dropped. Tears immediately sprang in his eyes, and he grabbed this little miracle and held her to his chest. “Sarah!” – he exclaimed. He scarcely recognized her, for her hair was long and silky and her cheeks were rosy — much different from the little girl he had visited just a year before.

He looked over and saw Sarah’s mother and grandmother in the sidelines smiling and waving and wiping their eyes. That was the best Christmas ever for Santa Claus.

He had witnessed –and been blessed to be instrumental in bringing about — this miracle of hope. This precious little child was healed. Cancer-free. Alive and well. He silently looked up to Heaven and humbly whispered, “Thank you, Father. ‘Tis a very, Merry Christmas!”

  Quote of the Day (Dr GM Singh)

Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today. James Dean

 
  Legal Question of the Day (Dr M C Gupta)

A nursing home employs homeopaths as RMOs. Can it be held liable in law?.

Q. A nursing home, claiming to provide allopathic services, employs RMOs who are homeopaths. When questioned, the nursing home argues—“We are not committing any irregularity. The RMOs never claim to be MBBS. They do not prescribe any medicines. They only observe the patients and relay their observations to the consultant in modern medicine who alone is responsible for all clinical decisions”. Will such argument succeed in a court of law in view of the Thakur vs Han Charitable Trust judgment?

Ans.

  • The National Consumer Commission observed as follows in Prof. P.N. Thakur v. Hans Charitable Hospital, NC, 16 Aug. 2007

    http://ncdrc.nic.in/OP21497.HTML

    “we feel it is high time that hospital authorities realize that the practice of employing non-medical practitioners such as Doctors specialized in Unani system and who do not possess the required skill and competence to give allopathic treatment and to let an emergency patient be treated in their hands is a gross negligence.”
  • The word treatment means as follows:
    • "Treatment" means the provision of specific physical, mental, social interventions and therapies which halt, control or reverse processes that cause, aggravate or complicate malfunctions or dysfunctions.

      http://www.oregonlaws.org/glossary/definition/treatment
    • “Treatment includes not only medical treatment in the sense that the patient or subject is looked after and attended to by a doctor , but also nursing in the sense that the subject or patient is looked after and attended to by persons professionally trained to look after and attend to the sick”—

      --Minister of Health v. Royal Midland Counties Home for Incurables etc. (1954) 1 All ER 1013, 1017.
    • In terms of the Coal Mine Health and Safety Regulation 2006, made under the Australian Coal Mine Health and Safety Act 2002,

      “Medical treatment means the carrying out, by or under the supervision of a registered medical practitioner, of an operation, the administration of a drug or other like substance, or any other medical procedure (not including diagnostic tests or advice that do not lead to treatment).”

      http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0020/231428/definition-of-medical-treatment-COA-WIR.pdf
  • Whether an argument succeeds in a court depends upon many factors, such as:
    • The nature and level of court.
    • The nature and level of the advocate.
    • The nature and facts and circumstances of the case.
  • I think I will succeed if I argue as follows:
    • The word “treatment” in the quote from the Thakur judgment has to be interpreted as per the definitions given above. This means that “Medical treatment means the carrying out, by or under the supervision of a registered medical practitioner”. Carrying out some function under the supervision of a registered medical practitioner does not mean Under supervision does not mean “to independently observe the patients and relay their observations to the consultant in modern medicine”.
    • That nowhere in the hospital is it displayed that the RMOs are homeopathy graduates.
    • That the name plates of the RMPs working in the hospital only read as “Dr. ABC” and anot as “Dr. ABC, BHMS”
    • That in view of the above, there is no information to the patients that in its real meaning of the term “treatment”, they are being treated by non-MBBS persons.
    • That patients come to the hospital because the nursing home claims to offer and the patients want treatment by practitioners of modern medicine and, in the circumstances, the practice of employing non-MBBS practitioners such as Doctors specialized in homeopathic system who do not possess the required skill and competence to give allopathic treatment amounts to gross negligence” in terms of the judgment in Prof. P.N. Thakur v. Hans Charitable Hospital.

  Medicolegal Update

(Dr Sudhir Gupta, Additional Prof, Forensic Medicine & Toxicology, AIIMS)

Countercoup injury of brain

  • Two types of impact occur on skull and the sound wave elicited by the impact. The first at the site where the force is applied, the second where the advancing segments of the accelerated brain are brought suddenly to rest by the forces that resist its forward motion.
  • Counter coup lesions of the brain were once thought to be caused by the brain moving within the skull in a straight line with the force of the blow striking against its opposite side. But, experiments on mechanics of head injuries have demonstrated these lesions are chiefly due to local distortions of the skull and the sudden rotation of the head as result of a blow, which arouse shear strains or slide produced by the pulling apart of the constituent particles of the brain.
  • Shear strains occur and pull apart the constituent particles of the brain. These are produced in all parts of the brain, but to a large extent at the base of the frontal lobe and the tip of the temporal lobe, as the skull gets a good grip on the brain in this region due to the projecting ridge of the sphenoid bone. Hence, severe and extensive injuries occur in this region with a blow on the occiput.
  • On the other hand, countercoup injuries which are caused by rotation will not occur if the head is so well fixed that it cannot rotate at all when it receives a blow. Cerebral contusions and tears have been reported in autopsy as a result of trauma.

Reduce weight first if facing infertility problem

Both obese men and women can face fertility problems unless they reduce their weight. Reducing weight as the first step can bring back their fertility said Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India.

  • Obese men are more than three times as likely to have low sperm counts compared with their normal-weight peers. A study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility showed that the heaviest men were at triple the risk of having a low count of progressively motile sperms -- sperms that swim forward in a straight line.
  • Increased body fat can also contribute to lower testosterone levels and higher estrogen levels.
  • Obese men were also 1.6 times more likely than overweight or normal-weight men to have a high percentage of abnormally shaped sperm.
  • There is a trend toward increasing likelihood of erectile dysfunction with increasing BMI.
  • Obesity is associated with a greater risk of impotence.
  • Obesity is also associated with metabolic syndrome and polycystic ovarian disease (PCOD) in women and associated infertility.

About HCFI: The only National Not for profit NGO, on whose mega community health education events, Govt. of India has released two National commemorative stamps and one cancellation stamp, and who has conducted one to one training on” Hands only CPR” of 22315 people since 1st November 2012.
The CPR 10 Mantra is – “within 10 minutes of death, earlier the better; at least for the next 10 minutes, longer the better; compress the centre of the chest of the dead person continuously and effectively with a speed of 10x10 i.e. 100 per minute.”
