Ultroid is a medical device which consists of a small base unit, a handle and a double – pronged single use probe that comes in direct contact with the base of the hemorrhoid during treatment. A small amount of milliamperature electric current is applied to the base of the hemorrhoid. The current creates a unique biochemical reaction in the vascular supply vessels to the intracellular level of water that causes the release of hydrogen ions (h 2 Gas) that create action foam concentrates at the point where the probe tips touch the base Hemorrhoid. Foam of this action is a visual indication that the process is working, and not criticism of the destruction of hemorrhoids. Critique the reaction is the production of hydroxyl ions or oh, that lead to a strong base environmental protection around the probe that determine a denaturization of protein, a thrombosis of capillaries feeding vessels and a chemical cauterizing vessels in the vascular supply of hemorrhoids. The result is the destruction of hemorrhoids as the content of the hemorrhoids is reabsorbed by the body. The release of pressure and shrinkage of the fabric causes immediate relief for the patient.

Piles Cancer

2013-02-25-skinny-spinach-dip-1-580

Hemorrhoids commonly known as Piles is a Disorder than may affect close to 70% of the Indian Population in the age group of 18 to 80 Years.

Although this disease may be so rampant, not many undertake treatment since a) They do not expect it to Piles or any of such associated disorder b) They feel shy to seek diagnosis and resort to home remedies instead.

A Diet high in processed fiber is recommended, since Dietary fiber is the only known substance capable of enlarging your stools. A deficiency of fiber can lead to constipation, hemorrhoids, and elevated levels of cholesterol and sugar in the blood.

Women need 25 grams of fiber per day, and men need 38 grams per day, according to the Institute of Medicine.
Recommended Foods Rich in Fibre may Include:
-Corn: Half a Kernel of Corn contains 2 grams of fibre. Popcorn is also a terrific—and low-calorie—fibre source, with about 3.5 grams of fibre per three-cup serving.
-Rajma: If eaten in the right quantity, It can help in maintaining healthy bowel movements and cleansing the digestive tract. Regular Bowel movements are associated with a lower risk of colon/ rectal cancers.
-Spinach: Spinach is a good source of iron and has a good amount of fibre as well. There are approximately 8 grams of fiber in 250 grams of spinach. Indulging in raw spinach salads or steamed fresh spinach is also advantageous.
Good sources of fiber include: lettuce, dark leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, potatoes with the skin, asparagus, cabbage, whole wheat pasta, oats, popcorn, nuts, raisins, pears, strawberries, oranges, bananas, blueberries, mangoes, and apples.

Causes of Piles

sittingchair_rect540

Listed below are some Causes associated with Piles:

Constipation:
People face strain in the toilet because of persistent constipation. When it becomes tougher to eject stool out of the anus, the nerves swell more and even rupture at times. Ruptured Hemorrhoids tend to bleed when the condition worsens. This is accompanied by heightened sensitivity and pain.

Diarrhea:
No stool and excessive stool, both are a reason behind this painful ailment. Diarrhea – i.e., excessive bowel movement also strains the anal muscles.

Sitting too Long:
Sitting on a chair for long hours, like people who work at a desk are more prone to get piles because while we sit for hours at the same place, it puts pressure on your buttocks and hence risks of developing piles also increases.

Standing for Long Hours:
It has been believed that excess off everything is bad and same is the case with piles. Standing for prolonged hours also tends to push blood down to the lower portion of the body, causing swollen veins and arteries and hence, inflamed hemorrhoids.

Lack of a Healthy Diet:
Lack of healthy diet, especially fibrous food, causes constipation and strain during bowel movement. Junk food, excessively spicy food, higher quantities of meat, coupled with lower fluid intake, lead to constipation, which leads to piles.

Stool

Large stools — as in the Type 2 and 3 in the Bristol Stool Chart below — aren’t defined by their volume, but size, or, to be exact, their diameter.

Stools May turn out to be on the Larger side due to Multiple Reasons including:

  1.  A Diet high in processed fiber. Dietary fiber is the only known substance capable of enlarging your stools.
  2.  Chronic constipation. It is the not moving bowels at least once dailyneeding to strain, needing to take fiber laxatives or consuming laxogenic foods such as beets, prunes, prune juice, flaxseeds, and fiber-fortified cereals, bread, and pasta, or all of the above.
  3.  Conscious withdrawal of stools due to pain or circumstances, such as lack of clean bathroom, no access to bathroom facilities when needed.
  4. A Diet low in table salt, excessive sweating or acute dehydration. These conditions cause a rapid extraction of sodium chloride and fluids from feces.
  5. A diet low in dietary fat because fat is a primary factor that commands the body to initiate gastrocolic reflex and peristaltic mass movement.
  6. Diabetes-related anorectal nerve damage. This condition reduces the sensation of urge, so the person doesn’t feel a need to defecate.
  7. Incomplete bowel emptying regardless of causes most often related to pain and preceding complications.

Piles Home Remedy – How to Treat Piles Without Surgery

Usually when someone mentions hemorrhoids in polite conversation people tend to become hesitant to pursue the topic. The problem with hemorrhoids isn’t their damaging effect, rather it is their stigma. Hemorrhoids are not as hard to treat as people would think. In fact, there are many surgical and non-surgical procedures for the removal of hemorrhoids and for lessening their painful effects.

Basically, to ensure proper health one must not forget to treat the anus as a fragile and important organ. It is not exactly the first thought one gets upon the mention of fragile organs, but without it the entire human organism would shut down. Hemorrhoids or piles as they are also called, can occur during any stage of life and have been found prevalent in people who spend a huge portion of their time sitting, such as people who work strictly on a computer.

The problem with piles is if they are left untreated they grow and sometimes multiply across the inside of the anus and this basically leads to overtime bleeding. Every time a pile grows to the maximum of its size it will burst and this causes painful bleeding, making it almost completely impossible to sit down on one’s bottom. In fact, people with extreme cases of piles have to sit on specially made cushions that keep pressure off the damaged area.

The best way to keep piles from affecting your lifestyle as well as keep them from causing you pain is to look for piles disease treatments. The best treatment for piles so far can be found in the ClinTech clinic which offers quick and easy solutions for piles. They even have treatment for piles in pregnancy which is impressive given how risky that might be considered.

The ClinTech clinic is simply the best way to deal with hemorrhoids if you’re afraid of surgery or afraid of being scarred. Basically, in these situations it is best to leave decisions up to the professionals and none are more professional than the team at ClinTech.

Anal Fistula – Treatment and Recovery

Various factors and conditions can cause the development of an anal fistula. It is true that people find this condition really uncomfortable to talk about, yet there is some essential information on its treatment and recovery that everyone dealing with this type of fistula should be familiar with.

In most cases surgery is inevitable as it is proven to be the best way to treat anal fistula. Depending on its location, there is a range of methods such as: fistulotomy, which is a type of surgery used in most of the cases with good long-term results, then, the Seton technique, the advancement flap procedures and the bioprosthetic plug. We at ClinTech provide the least invasive method by using the Video Assisted Anal Fistula Treatment which is a highly recommendable as far as fistula treatment in mumbai goes.

People often find ClinTech searching for a phrase like “fistula treatment without surgery india”. Luckily for them, they stumble onto the website of the best piles hospital in mumbai; where the Fibrin glue method is offered as one common solution. It is a very simple and painless procedure, but with a low level of efficiency.

Concerning recovery from surgery, patients should be aware of several things. The more difficult the operation is, the longer time a patient will have to stay at the hospital. Normally, a wound would take approximately 6 weeks to heal, so a patient needs to be careful and take a good care of it. That implies a regular change of the dressing by the patient or a nurse. Furthermore, there is no room for panic if there is some bleeding or a discharge in the first couple of days after the surgery. Immediate contact with a doctor should be made in case of heavy bleeding, vomiting, high temperature or constipation.

Additionally, taking a bath alongside a dose of paracetamol should offer good pain relief. When dealing with a surgical procedure, some patients take antibiotics to prevent further infection. Laxatives are another option for emptying the bowels after surgery. There are also some restrictions which need to be taken into consideration. Driving, sitting still, or swimming is strictly forbidden in the first 48 hours after surgery.

Generally, there is the risk of recurrence with an anal fistula, but it depends on the type of procedure which had been carried out to treat the fistula and of course on the type of lifestyle the patient has. Remember: “Prevention is better than cure.”

How much you know about your sunscreen?? – Dr.Sangeetha Das, Consultant at ClinTech

We all know we need to protect our skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Of course, it’s     impossible to avoid the sun — who wants to hide indoors when it feels so great to get outside? And the sun’s not all that bad, anyway: Sunlight helps our body to create vitamin D. So follow these tips when you’re outdoors to help manage sun exposure.

First and foremost, it is important to understand the difference between UVA (ultraviolet-A) and UVB (ultraviolet-B).

UVA comes from long-wave solar rays known to penetrate the skin deeply, and is considered the main culprit behind wrinkling and other aspects of photoaging.

UVB, on the other hand, comprises short-wave solar rays that are known to cause sunburn.

Even on cloudy day, upto 80%of the sun’s UV rays can pass through the clouds..

Snow and sand increase the need for sunscreen. Snow reflects 80% of the sun’s rays and sand reflects 25% of the sun’s rays.

Though sunlight is important for healthy skin, just a small amount will do.

 Evidence shows that in temperate countries, anything from 5 to 30 minutes of sunlight exposure between the hours of10am  and 3pm, twice a week, is sufficient to prevent vitamin D deficiency

There are two kinds of sunblocks. First, there is the physical sunblock, which deflects or scatters UV radiation with its active ingredients titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Then there is the chemical sunblock, which supposedly works by absorbing the energy of UV radiation before it affects the skin.

What is SPF?

All the SPF number lets you know is how long you can stay in the sun without burning when wearing that product. However, it only refers to protection from UVB radiation, without giving you information about protection from UVA radiation

If that SPF 15 or SPF 30 doesn’t contain avobenzone, titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, you are receiving minimal protection from UVA radiation and it is a dangerous product to consider using. Dangerous because the user now spends more time in the sun, thinking that the product offers more protection than it does in reality.

Many sunscreens are also rated as “PA+”, “PA++” or “PA+++”.  PA, which stands for Protection Grade of UVA, measures the ingredients’ protective effect against UVA.  PA+ is sufficient for most activities but should you plan to stay in the sun for long hours, opt for PA+++ or higher, if possible.

So what are you waiting for…Step out  and enjoy the summer!!

Look Good……………… Naturally – By Dr.Nilam Kothari, Dermatologist

The quest for that elusive glow and radiance seems never ending; believe me it all starts with the food on your plate. To know what works best for you, first know your skin type.

This can be done by taking a simple skin test using a dry tissue strip, after cleansing the face with a gentle cleanser wait for 30mins, now take a dry tissue strip and gently dab it with minimal pressure across the face starting from one ear to the other, including the nose. Do this for about 2minutes. Now observe for oil spots over the tissue strip.

Normal skin shows some oil spots predominantly over the nose area.

Oily skin will show large spots all over the strip.

Combination skin shows more number of spots smeared over the nose area.

Dry skin shows very few or no spots at all. In very dry skin fine flakes of dead skin may be seen.

Knowing your basic skin type is the first step towards selecting a smart diet plan that helps you attain healthy and radiant skin that lasts longer. Apart from a balanced diet with ideal proportion of carbs, proteins, fats and micronutrients, inclusion of certain specific food items is highly recommended.

Oily skin type benefits well with diet rich in vitamin A, present abundantly in coloured (red & orange) fruits and veggies like papaya, orange, bell peppers, tomatoes, etc.

Normal skin benefits with diet rich in antioxidants and vitamins A, C & E like gooseberries, olives, nuts, tomatoes, coloured peppers, nuts & fruits.

Dry skin types need proper skin hydration; plenty of water intake does the trick. Also foods rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids help. Rich sources are olive oil, nuts like almonds, peanuts, dried apricot, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds. Fish such as sardines, tuna & salmon should be included in the diet.

Mature skin above 40 years of age is usually dry and may thus require diet suited to dry or combination skin type.

Also antioxidants (vitamins & minerals) are necessary for all skin types to combat the damaging effects of sunlight, pollution, smoking, alcohol & toxins present in processed food and water. Food sources rich in vitamins A, C, and E, selenium, magnesium & zinc are ideal. Selenium & magnesium rich foods include seafood, brown rice, chicken and whole wheat bread. Zinc is found in nuts, cereals and meats (beef, pork, salmon, and chicken). Green tea is power packed with most of the natural antioxidants.

Apart from diet modification, a specific skin care routine suitable to your skin type works wonders. To know more consult your dermatologist who will guide you better.

 

Eat Healthy : Avoid Constipation

Are you suffering from

  • Recent change in bowel habits?
  • Fewer bowel movements than usual?
  • Strain while passing stools?
  • Do you have to sit longer than usual to empty the bowels

 

If your answer is ‘Yes’ to one or more of the questions, then you are amongst the many people who suffer from constipation.

 

One should be aware that there is no ‘right’ number of bowel movements. Normal passing of stools can occur three times a day or three times a week, depending on your system. It all depends on contributing factors that include the food that you eat and how much you exercise.
Every one experiences being constipated at some point in life due largely to a poor diet. Though it is usually temporary and not serious, understanding what causes constipation can help you take steps to prevent it.

What causes Constipation??

As food passes through the large intestine, water is absorbed and waste products from the food form into stool. As movement of the food in the intestine slows down, stools become dry and hard and causes constipation

Culprits

  • Low fibre diet
  • High fat content in the food
  • Not drinking enough fluids
  • Lack of exercise
  • Not passing stools when you feel the urge
  • Laxative abuse
  • Certain medications
  • Changes in routine such as pregnancy, aging or travel

 

 How to avoid Constipation

  1. Eat High Fiber diet : Fiber provides bulk to the stool and also accelerates movement of the food in the intestine. Introduce more beans, seeds, green leafy vegetables, fruits into your diet.
  2. Avoid refined carbohydrates : such as white bread, pasta and polished rice. Whole grain varieties contain more fibers and also helps insulin release in the body. This also reduces risk of diabetes.
  3. Drink more water : Eight glasses per day is ideal. Also soups, fruit juices would be helpful
  4. Exercise : At least 30 mins brisk walk everyday or light workout / aerobics are advisable and also good for overall health.
  5. Consult your doctor before self prescribing laxatives : Some laxatives are habit forming if taken over a long period of time. Do consult your doctor for the right choice of the laxative and the right duration.

 

Botox and Fillers-The Combined Liquid Face Lift!

Erase away frown lines, forehead lines and the lines around the eyes in a single sitting. Botox is a highly purified protein that relaxes wrinkle forming muscles and gives a relaxed and youthful appearance to the face. It can make a person look 4-5 years younger and fresher with just one sitting.
Fillers are used to restore lost volume in the face. As we all know ageing causes our face to get a sunken look and the laugh lines deepen giving a tired ,elderly look.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are gels made from naturally occurring sugars which have the property to fill the lost volume. These fillers also have the ability to absorb water up to 1000 times its weight and improving the overall appearance of dry and sagging skin. The results are immediate and last more than a year.
These fillers can also be used to treat hollow, sunken eyes, thin lips or a droopy mouth.

Fissures Treatment

Caused by trauma to the anus and anal canal due to bowel movement, anal fissure is a cut or tear occurring in the anus that extends up into the anal canal. Anal fissures are fairly common in men as well as women and can occur at any age including infancy. Symptoms of fissures include the patient suffering from anal pain that worsens with bowel movements. This pain may be bearable or severe in some cases. Sometimes the pain can also affect urination and cause discomfort while urinating, inability to urinate or frequent urination. To suggest an appropriate fissures treatment the doctor needs to first diagnose and evaluate the problem. This means the doctor will inspect the anus to confirm the presence of a fissure before suggesting a mode of treatment.

The goal of any anal fissures treatment is to break the cycle of spasm of the anal sphincter and discontinue its repeated tearing of the anoderm. In the case of acute anal fissures a large percentage of patients show speedy recovery and relief from pain by the use of medical therapy that is non-operative in nature. The treatment given to these patients involve adding bulk to the stool and softening the stool with psyllium or methylcellulose preparations and putting them on a high fiber diet. Also, the patients are advised to stay away from foods that may be difficult to digest well such as nuts, popcorn, chips, etc. They also need to increase their liquid intake to ensure the body has adequate fluids to take care of proper digestion. Some doctors may suggest Sitz baths after bowel movements to relax the spasm and increase the flow of blood to the anus.

Giving topical anesthetics and steroids to patients is also pretty common. Anesthetics like Xylocaine, pramoxine and tetracaine are recommended to reduce the pain of defecation. In some cases doctor may recommend oral medication to relax the smooth muscle of the internal sphincter, however the medication does little to actually heal the fissures. Some ointments such as Nitroglycerin, nifedipine, and diltiazem are used to relax the anal canal and increase blood flow, but come with a list of side effect that may be best avoided.

Two of the most successful types in anal fissures treatment are Chemical Sphincterotomy and Closed Internal Sphincterotomy. Chemical Sphincterotomy is a non operative and painless technique using botulinum toxin (BOTOX injection) to treat acute and chronic anal fissures. The injection of the toxin into the internal anal spincter basically paralyses the cavity and allows it to heal by not spasming. The effect of this treatment lasts up to about three months, in which time the fissure heals and the symptoms are resolved. On the other hand, Closed Internal Sphincterotomy is a Day Care Surgery which helps in reducing spasm and improving blood supply to the area to aid in healing.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH ULTROID AT ClinTech

As a surgeon, I always found operating piles, the traditional way, a fairly tasking affair for the patient as the same is associated with hospitalisation, surgery, post-operative pain and medications, and rest. After adopting the Ultroid Technique at ClinTech for treating symptomatic hemorrhoids, I find myself highly satisfied with the ease of conducting the procedure and excellent post-procedural results. The patients find Ultroid painless without anesthesia, no painkillers/medications afterwards and see dramatic improvement in the form of stoppage of bleeding and discomfort. I highly recommend Ultroid Hemorrhoid Management System as a painfree, permanent, proven and non-invasive treatment of piles and conduct it in preference to other available methods.

BAD PALATES ….AND WORSE PILES !!!

Just like all other lifestyle associated diseases, the worsening of the symptoms of piles like bleeding and discomfort, is definitely related to what you have had the day before. Hot and spicy food with loads of oil and meats, lack of greens and beans, as is common in most Indian kitchens, is more often than not an aggravating factor for an already brewing case of piles. If we take to eating healthy by incorporating plenty of fibres and salads, fruits, sensible amounts of meats, whole grains, and make our diet complete and balanced, the malady from piles can largely be avoided. To summate, what we take in healthy, gets out healthy !

Could you sugest a good diet?

A balanced diet comprising of diverse and healthy foods and that is the key to
promoting good health.
Eating a balanced diet means choosing a wide variety of foods and drinks
from all the food groups. It also means eating certain things in
moderation, namely saturated fat, transfat, cholesterol, refined sugar,
salt and alcohol. The goal is to take in nutrients you need for health at
the recommended levels.

Also, adequate consumption of water is important for a healthy diet.

WHO reccomends:
1)Achieve an energy balance and a healthy weight
2)Limit energy intake from total fats and shift fat consumption away from
saturated fats to unsaturated fats and towards the elimination of
trans-fatty acids
3)Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables, legumes, whole grains and
nuts
4)Limit the intake of simple sugar — A 2003 report recommends less than
10% simple sugars[3]
5)Limit salt / sodium consumption from all sources and ensure that salt is
iodized

How to maintain Ano-Rectal Health?

1)Eat high fiber diet-more fruits,vegetables &whole grain.This would make the stool soft &increase its bulk.This would lessen the straining at stools which cause piles or worsens already existing one.
2)Plenty of oral fluids sufficiently that your urine is light yellow or clear like water.
3)Exercise- Stay active to reduce pressure on veins which occurs because of prolonged standing or sitting.Take frequent short walks.Excercises also helps to reduce weight which contributes to the development of piles.
4)Avoid long period of sitting or standing esp refrain from reading while sitting on the toilet which can increase the pressure in the veins.
5)Schedule time in a day for your bowel movement as a daily routine always helps.Modifying your daily activities to practice healthy bowel habits will help you in the long run to maintain anorectal health.
6)Go to the bathroom as soon as you have the urge because if you wait and the urge goes away,then the stool tends to become dry and hard.Avoid straining at stools.Relax and give yourself time to let things happen naturally.Refrain from holding your breath while passing stools which could again increase the pressure in the veins.
7)Avoid lifting heavy weights frequently.If you must lift weights,always exhale during the act and never hold your breath when you lift.
