Awareness and timely management key to bring down Acute Liver Failure (ALF) mortality: Experts

image

Bangalore October 29, 2015: The expert team of Department of Hepatology at Global Hospitals – one of the fastest growing chains of multi-super speciality, multi-organ transplant and quaternary care hospitals in Mumbai, shared their experience in treating and managing Acute Liver Failure patients medically and through transplantation.

Acute liver failure is uncommon, life threatening, catastrophic illness which affects human beings and leads to rapid deterioration of liver function resulting in organ failure and death of a previously healthy individual. The main causes of ALF can be attributed to viral hepatitis, which is caused by contaminated drinking water and secondly it could also be drug induced.

Prof. Mohamed Rela, Director & Group Head, Institute of Liver Diseases and Transplantation, Global Hospitals Group, said,“The major cause of mortality in Acute Liver Failure (ALF) is lack of optimized care and awareness among the care givers and the medical fraternity. The key to success during ALF is timely action, optimal management and access to liver transplantation.”

Prof. Rela further added, “The initial care of patients with ALF depends on prompt recognition of the condition and early detection of etiology. Patients with irreversible ALF need Management at an advanced intensive care support unit, treatment of specific etiology and early detection of candidates for liver transplantation. The centre should be well equipped to handle all kinds of liver transplantation.”

Speaking about liver diseases and acute liver failure, Dr. Samir Shah, HOD, Hepatology, Liver Intensive Care & Transplant Hepatology, Global Hospitals, Mumbai said, “Liver diseases are amongst top ten killer diseases in India and are increasing because of lifestyle changes. Those suffering from chronic liver problems need recurrent and prolonged medical attention which can be made available at tertiary care centers. ALF, however, requires immediate decision making – referral to the right centre where facilities for optimal liver intensive care to give the best chance to the patient to have a spontaneous recovery is available.  Also, in case the patient requires a transplant then the centre should be equipped to do so. Of the ALF cases received at our unit we have been able to save 80%. Of these 50% were managed medically and 50% underwent a transplant.

Acute liver failure (ALF) can be caused by Viruses (Hep A, Hep E, Hep B, other viruses), Drugs (anti TB drugs, painkillers, alternative medicines) , Toxins (yellow phosphorus, mushrooms), and many times the cause remains unknown. Hepatitis A and Hepatitis E are water borne illness i.e. communicable by drinking contaminated food or water. Once the liver gets affected not all patients progress to liver failure but if they do then the illness becomes life threatening unless timely action and treatment is given.

Dr. Vaishali Solao, Chief Liver Intensivist, Department of Hepatology, Liver Intensive Care and Transplant Hepatology, Global Hospitals, Mumbai said, “About 10 years ago mortality rate amongst ALF patients was as high as 80% and survival rate was a meager 20%. With advances in treatment and intensive management of ALF patients’ survival has gone up to 80% and mortality has come down to 20%. But only treatment available for ALF patients is liver transplantation and can be treated only at transplant center having specialized intensive care unit and liver surgeons. However, not all ALF require transplant. 50% survive with medical management in liver care specialized centers.”

Speaking on the occasion, Professor Julia Wendon, Clinical Director, Critical Care Division, Kings College, London, said, “With an incidence of less than 10 cases per million per year in the developed world, acute liver failure is seen most commonly in previously healthy  young adults and presents unique challenges in clinical management. The clinical presentation usually includes acute severe hepatic dysfunction with abnormal liver blood tests, and coagulopathy altered conscious level as seen by encephalopathy may develop, with progressive multi-organ failure and death until recently occurring in up to half the cases. However, rates of survival have improved substantially in recent years through advances in critical care management and the use of emergency liver transplantation.”

“Acute liver failure is much less common in the developed world than in the developing world, where viral infections (hepatitis A, B, and E) are the predominant causes. Public health measures (e.g., vaccination and improved sanitation) are among the factors resulting in the reduced incidence of these infections in the United States and much of Western Europe, where drug-induced liver injury is the most common cause of acute liver failure,” added Dr. Wendon.

Talking about ALF statistics, Dr. Ravi Mohanka, Chief Surgeon and HOD, Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Surgery and Liver Transplantation, Global Hospitals, Mumbai, said, “As per studies 160 ALF patients were reported at PGI Chandigarh between January 1996 and June 1998, and 405 patients were reported at AIIMS, Delhi, from January 2004 to June 2011. At Global Hospitals, Mumbai, we have had 53 ALF patients beginning January 2014 till date. Drawing an inference from western data where ALF is predominantly drug induced, these numbers are not even the tip of the iceberg in Indian scenario, where we have acute viral hepatitis as an important cause for ALF and not every patient lands up in a tertiary care set-up. What further aggravates the problem is the fact that the number of cadaveric liver donation in India is far and in between. Therefore, living donor liver transplant is an important option which can now be safely performed in experienced centers of excellence.

Ø  Patient awareness and education along with good medical setup, immediate coordination and judicious transfer of organ should be prioritized so that ALF management could be optimized.

Ø  Once recognized it is important to refer the patient to a specialized centre for the only cure is transplantation. Not all patients require transplantation.

Ø  About 50 % recover with conservative management, 25% require transplantation and rest 25% die.

Ø  Timely referral to a specialized centre, timely transplantation in the severe failure has reduced the mortality in ALF considerably.

Ø  It is essential that ALF be managed in specialized ICU who has experience in treating such patients for better outcome.

Global Hospital Mumbai has already established itself in the transplant space and has handled many complex liver surgeries in the past. Global Hospitals has a dedicated Liver Intensive Care Unit. They have experience and expertise in handling serious cases and have sent many patients home without a transplant by curing them with right and timely treatment. The hospital reiterated its commitment to provide world class health care facilities to the patients.

National Safety Science Quiz 2015 29-31 October 2015

National Council of Science Museums, a premier institution involved in popularizing science through informal mode, in partnership with UL, a premier global independent safety science company is organizing the National Safety Science Quiz 2015 for school students from October 29-31 2015 at Visvesvaraya Industrial & Technological Museum, Bengaluru (VITM). The quiz has been conceived to inspire the young minds for making India a safer India. This is consecutively the second time that a quiz on Safety Science is being conducted at the national level and is aimed to have an immense educational and experiential impact. The quiz is intended to instill a greater awareness on the need for safety amongst school children and will be a vehicle to spread the message on safety education across the country.

This year the quiz will revolve around the theme Safety Science in everyday life. Consider a regular day in your life. Is the hair dryer or geyser in your bathroom likely to give you an electric shock? Is the UPS in your home too close to flammable material? What to do if the cooking gas leaks or the elevator is stuck? What should one do if the cooking pan sets on fire? Should one stop at a T-junction before crossing? In summary, do you face situations in your daily life where safety to you and your surrounding is compromised? This is a platform created by NCSM and UL together to showcase new ideas and project that how we can become Safety Conscious and Safety Smart.

The preliminary round of the quiz was simultaneously held at seven major cities- Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Guwahati and Bangalore, on the 23rdAugust 2015. More than 5000 students from class IX to XII took part. The top four students from each of the seven cities will now be participating in the further rounds of the quiz at Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum (VITM), Bengaluru on Oct 30th & 31st 2015 to get the National Safety Champion Award. As a part of this event a Safety Parliament is also being organized on Oct.29th 2015 in which the participants will represent themselves as theMembers of the Safety Parliament and interact with a panel of Safety Experts on safety concerns. On conclusion, recommendations/ resolutions will be passed and they in turn will be brought to the notice of the concerned authorities for possible implementation. The participants will be declared as the Safety Ambassadors and are expected to bring awareness on safety issues in their cities and surroundings.

Shri K G Kumar, Director, Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum, Bangalore said that “The response in the previous year made us decide to continue the event this year also. It is almost daily that news reports appear on casualty due to avoidable accidents at home and due to panic action by the people around when an untoward event happens. It is important that people are made aware of the possible causes of accidents in everyday life and the associated remedies so that in the eventuality that they are in a face to face to such situations they can take informed decisions and right actions to prevent further damages and loss of human life and property. The young children who are the future citizens of our country should be prepared to deal on such issues which are not a part of school curriculum. This quiz and the safety parliament is one such platform that has been created by NCSM and UL together to reach the cause”.

Mr. R.A.Venkitachalam Vice President – Public Safety Mission, Underwriters Laboratories Inc, said “on this Initiative, “schools are where the future of a nation is built. Hence we at UL decided to focus all our Public Safety Awareness efforts on school going children across India. The NSSQ is a first of a kind amongst quiz programs and aims to ignite the young minds to ask questions about public safety in their immediate environments, act where they can and be safety ambassadors wherever they are”.

Shri Om Prakash, IPS ,Director General & Inspector General of Police Karnataka State will be the Chief Guest and inaugurate quiz and Dr. Thuppil Venkatesh, Director & Professor Emeritus, National Referral Center for Lead Projects in India (NRCLPI) National Chairman , Indian Society for Lead Awareness and Research (INSLAR) will preside over the National Safety Science Quiz 2015 on Thursday, the 29th October 2015 at 9.30am at Visvesvaraya Industrial & Technological Museum, Bangalore.

FROM BRITISH ROYAL EXTERIORS TO ROYAL INDIAN INTERIORS

CHRISTMAS TREASURES FROM VICTOR EDELSTEIN AND ANNAMARIA SUCCI AT INDAR PASRICH GALLERY, LONDON, DECEMBER 1st to 24th

Victor Edelstein chose to train as a dress designer and in 1964 headed for Paris to gain experience. After two years he returned to a now ‘swinging’ London as an assistant designer with Biba. Next stop was head designer at Salvador and then Christian Dior in London.

In 1978 he started his own couture house and clients very shortly included Diana, Princess of Wales, he made the famous dress in which she danced with John Travolta at the White House.  After 15 years in 1993 he decided to make one more creative decision and turn to another art, that of painting. At 47 he changed course and has never looked back.

Now after 22 years painting he is focused on royal palace interiors. This year there is an exhibition of his work and that of Annamaria Succi, his wife, at the Indar Pasricha Gallery at 22 Connaught Street, London, just behind Marble Arch from 1st – 24th December. They make for perfect Christmas gifts.

Pictures by Victor Edelstein and Annamaria Succi lift the spirit with their lively colours and exotic light. Both painters have been inspired by India and their fascination with the country, it’s people, the wonderful palaces, abundant flowers, plants and animals is reflected in their work.

Anyone lucky enough to find one of these paintings among their Christmas presents, will know that the giver wanted them to have enjoyment from the gift for ever.

Michael Strauss, former Head of Impressionist Pictures at Sotheby’s, says: “I have long been an admirer of Victor Edelstein’s pastel. He has a special touch with that softest of mediums which create exquisite luminous effects. By such means he has interpreted light and its play on surfaces in his unique fashion.”

Victor’s recent show at the Didier Aaron Gallery in Paris, ‘Palace Interiors in Pastel’ created an unusual reaction – “an almost greedy feasting on the images by viewers,” according to French arts writer Sylvie Tolila – “and a sea of red sold dots.”

Victor explains his motivation for the paintings. “The challenge is to enter a room and try to find ‘The-Picture-That-Might-Be-There’. I like to find interiors that have not been touched for many years, which is why I have tended to concentrate on the interiors of palaces. For me there is an irresistible fascination in discovering in these largely unchanged interiors a true sense of the past.”

He studied painting with David Cranswick in London and Charles Cecil in Florence and held a first solo exhibition at Sotheby’s showing oils and pastels of Still Life, landscapes and portraits. The show sold out. Since then he has exhibited interiors from Venice and India at Hopkins, Thomas, Custot in Paris and at both Hazlitt, Gooden & Fox and Derek John’s Gallery in London. In New York his pastels were well received at Didier Aaron.

Annamaria Succi creates her own gems, having spent her life looking closely at beautiful objects. This intense concentration shows in her wonderful still life paintings and pastels. One will never look at a cabbage in quite the same way after seeing the ballgown she captures in this homely vegetable, nor the radiance of a quince, or a lemon. The Dutch Old Masters would recognize a fellow spirit in Annamaria.

She started her art career at Sotheby’s in 1969 in the publishing department, then became the editor of the Year Book, ‘Art at Auction’ and in 1974 went on to manage and do the buying for the British Rail Pension Fund Art Collection – one of the few art funds ever to have made a profit. In 1981 she went on to become an art investment adviser and dealer in old master drawings. Finally in 1995 she concentrated all her time on her own painting.

Today she has a strong following in Europe and the USA. Anne Heseltine says of her work: “Small in size they shine like little jewels and glow against the dark paneling of my old house. The eye does not become accustomed to them and so tire, but there is always something new to see in them. They give me infinite pleasure.”

The Venetian professor of art, Ileana Chiappini di Sorio adds: “Annamaria revisits a classical genre in her work with a very personal viewpoint. Her pictures are a pretext to enhance natural forms as revealed by light….capturing the evanescent character of her subjects with true and delicate rendering.” In fact many of her works seem to glow with an inner light and life of their own.

Indar Pasricha says of these two remarkable artists: “I’ve always seen my role as creating bridges between Britain and India and in the work of these two artists that ambition is realized. Victor’s Indian and other interiors are all about light – the intense coloured light of India and the subdued moody light of England. Annamaria’s work reminds me of the Indian miniature, capturing in gem-like tones images that stay fresh and vital.”

And in the voluptuous swags of textiles, curtains, wall hangings, cushions and the drama of theatre curtains Victor Edelstein shows that he has lost none of his skill and mastery of the cut and hang of luxurious materials made manifest in his pictures where they too dance, though not now for John Travolta, but for a select group of cognoscenti who understand grace.

‘Universal agreement that gutka ban is good for the health of India’s youth’- Study

????????????????????????????????????

Bangalore, October 28: There is almost a universal support (94%) for gutka ban even among users of Gutka in the state, according to a recent study. Further, 85 per cent of the respondents were in favor of the ban being extended to all other smokeless tobacco products.

Karnataka state report is part of a larger eight-state research study undertaken last year by Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Institute of Global Tobacco Control (JHSPH-IGTC) and the World Health Organization Country Office for India in collaboration with JHSPH Center for Communication Programs (JHSPH-CCP) and Centre for Communication and Change-India (CCC-I), New Delhi.  The study aimed to understand the impact of state laws that ban the sale and distribution of Gutka. The study was conducted in eight states: Assam, Bihar, Delhi, Gujarat, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka.

The Health Minister, Shri U T Khader released the fact sheet, outlining the summary findings for the state.

The study was conducted in the districts of Bangaluru and Mangaluru last year. It shows that gutka ban did impact use as none of the respondents use pre-packaged gutka since the ban. A large percentage of dual users (64%) — users who consumed Gutka along with other tobacco product, reduced the use of smokeless tobacco products after the ban. There was virtually no retail outlet that was observed where pre-packaged gutka was on display. Ninety eight per cent of the retailers interviewed agreed that the government should ban the manufacturing, sale and distribution of other forms of smokeless tobacco, which serves as an evidence for further policy interventions in the realm of tobacco control in the state.

“The study provides evidence that the consumption of gutka among the respondents has reduced. It is, however, necessary to curb consumption of all forms of smokeless tobacco products, especially among the youth. This requires not only policy intervention, but also a concerted effort by different stakeholders to educate citizens about the adverse health impact of all forms of smokeless tobacco consumption” said Dr. Pradeep Krishnatray from Centre for Communication and Change-India.

Dr Vishal Rao, Oncologist & Member of High-Power committee for Tobacco  Control, Govt of Karnataka, Dr Raghunandan, Joint Director-Medical, Govt. of Karnataka, Dr Pratima Murty, Professor, NIMHANS, Dr.  Pragati Hebbar, Institute of Public Health and cancer victims Mr Durgaiah and Mr Ramchandra along with other dignitaries were present at the event.
