Imagery diagnosis 1. X-ray: it done to check if theres a decrease in height of the disc, sclerosis, hypertrophy, etc 2. CT-scan: it gives a detailed and more elaborate anatomic view of the spine 3. MRI-scan: it helps in detecting the cuts and tears through multiple tissue layers 4. EMG study: detects whether a nerve is impinged or not Treatment Medical management • OTC drugs: medicines that are safe to be take without prescription, if the pain is shooting/excruciating For example: ibuprofen, naproxen, etc • Narcotics drugs: to produce analgesic effect.
The doctor will apply a chemical to the perforated edges to stimulate tissue growth and a patch to cover the hole. This procedure may be done repeatedly before the hole is closed. • Surgery. This is done if a patch does not lead to proper healing. The most common procedure is tympanoplasty, where the surgeon places a graft of your own tissue on the hole of the eardrum.
Rhinoplasty is commonly performed to repair damage caused by traumatic injury. In many cases, a nose job isn't required, as the nose can be set non-surgically up to a week following the injury. Yet, if the nose isn't set quickly enough, surgery is often the only option for reversing the damage. One reason: Bleeding caused by trauma can cause clotting within the nose, which can kill the cartilage. This loss of cartilage can cause deformation - a condition that's sometimes called "boxer nose," which requires surgery to
After surgery, the orthopaedic surgeon will continue to have contact with the patient with follow-up visits and follow the patient’s progress through rehabilitation. Both orthopaedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons may further specialize. For example, some neurosurgeons specialize in brain surgery, while some orthopaedic spine surgeons specialize in pediatric spinal surgery. Both neurosurgeons and orthopaedic spine surgeons are qualified to treat back and neck problems. However it is important to understand each considered surgeon’s sub-specialty.
The gallbladder is one of the organs of the digestive system of animals. After the surgical procedure, the patient that Dr McKernan operated on recovered more quickly than usual. It only took a few weeks to recover rather than months. This was the first laparoscopic cholecystectomy performed in the U.S.A., and the beginning of minimally invasive surgery. This opened up a new new door, changing how people think of surgery.
Common Causes of Stiff Neck: How is neck pain diagnosed? In diagnosing the cause of neck pain, it is important to review the history of the symptoms. In reviewing the history, the doctor will note the location, intensity, duration, and radiation of the pain. Is the pain worsened or improved with turning or repositioning of the head? Any past injury to the neck and past treatments are noted.
You may feel a dull ache or can be strong. The pain can be mild, or it can be suitably shocking to interfere with the normal work consistently out. Causes Some causes are responsible for pelvic pain include- Endometriosis This is an illness in which muscle from the covering of your womb (uterus) creates outside your uterus. These stores of tissue respond to your menstrual cycle, for the most part as your
Usually surgeons put two drains through the infra auricular skin one behind and other beneath the cartilaginous framework. Herein, we put forward our idea of putting the drains through the hair bearing areas of scalp so as to avoid visible post-operative visible scars. Introduction The use of autologous costal cartilage for ear reconstruction was first described by Sir Harold Gillies, in 1920(1). Later Brent described a standardized technique of four stage reconstruction of microtia (2, 3, 4). In early 90s Nagata further modified this procedure and proposed his two stage technique for
Hair may be removed from the surgical area. An IV will be inserted into one of your veins. You will be given one or more of the following: A medicine to help you relax (sedative). A medicine to numb the area for the procedure (local anesthetic). A small incision will be made in your upper thigh area or groin area, in an iliac artery.
Complete rectal prolapse is a life-style altering disability that commonly affects older people. Rectal prolapse occurs when a mucosal or full-thickness layer of rectal tissue slides through the anal orifice. Full-thickness prolapse of the rectum causes significant discomfort because of the sensation of the prolapse itself, the mucus that it secretes, and because it tends to stretch the anal sphincters and cause incontinence. Surgical management is aimed at restoring physiology by correcting the prolapse and improving continence and constipation, whereas in patients with concurrent genital and rectal prolapse, an interdisciplinary surgical approach is required. Rectal prolapse frequently coexists with other pelvic floor disorders,
