States first Actifit meniscal replacement surgery performs at VPS Lakeshore

news

Kochi: The state's first Actifit meniscal replacement performed at VPS Lakeshore. The surgery was performed on Thaiseer, a 24 year old patient from Thrissur. The surgery was performed by a medical team headed by Dr. Jacob Varghese.

According to doctors, Thaiseer was admitted into the hospital with anterior cruciate ligament tear and complete complex tear of the medial meniscus which was irreparable.

The absence of meniscus will predispose the patient to early osteoarthrosis is the medium term. With increasing sporting activities damaged meniscus is a major cause of early arthritis. Repair of meniscus is possible only for the peripheral (rim) tears which have blood supply. Actifit meniscal implant was used to replace the torn medial meniscus for the first time in the State and Second time in the country”, said Dr. Varughese. In a few months the Actifit implant will get replaced by the patient’s own tissue which acts as a scaffold and has been shown to reduce the grade of osteoarthrosis and facilitate the joint preservation. He added that the other option would be to use cadaveric meniscal transplant for which the size and availability is an issue in India at present. Actifit can be trimmed to the size of the defect and can be directly imported by the patient at present.

Kerala's first successful spine surgery using a 3D model
07
Aug

A 19-year-old B.Com student from Ochira, Kollam has become the first person in the state to undergo complex spine surgery using 3-D printing technology. The pioneering surgery was performed by a medical team headed by Dr. Krishnakumar, Consultant and Head of Spine Surgery division at VPS Lakeshore Hospital.

The patient was suffering from Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia Tarda, a rare genetic disease that affects approximately one person per 2, 00,000 population. “Due to his genetic condition, the patient had abnormal spinal bone growth and structure leading to incomplete formation of peg like bone in the second cervical vertebral bone, which corresponds to the upper part of the neck” said Dr. Krishnakumar.

“This condition caused dislocation of the neck bones (Atlanto axial Instability) causing spinal cord compression and difficulty in walking. The complex abnormal shapes of the bones and blood vessels of the upper spine warranted a 3-D printed spine model for planning the complex surgery”, he added.

Using the patient’s CT- scan and special software, exact replica of his spine with blood vessels was made by using 3-D printing technology, which took 32 hours for printing. The Atlanto Axial Instability was reduced and fixed by C1 –C2 transarticular screws. “The 3-D printing technology will greatly benefit in understanding complex abnormal anatomy and surgical planning resulting in better patient care” added Dr. Krishnakumar. The medical team for the surgery also included Dr. Mallie Abraham and Dr. Jay
