Patient Story Prostate Artery Embolization with Robotic Catheter
Biking brings balance to my life, good physical activity and a great sense of enjoyment A group of 6 of us, we ride, we take a couple of major trips a year they know that I've gotta stop a little bit more frequently than they do to use the facilities, which in part determined how much I rode and how often I rode. I had been diagnosed with prostate enlargement 1520 years ago. My symptoms had progressed to the point where it was intrusion in my life it really affected my energy.
My ability to concentrate, my ability to just function in my ordinary day both in the office and also with functions at home. I was facing the issue of requiring surgery or this new procedure prostate artery emobolization which was using interventional radiology to achieve the same purpose without surgery having heard what was involved in surgery and now having this option to do something so much less invasive was such a relief. I had prostatic artery embolization PAE, with the Magellan Robotic System differences in recovery are night and day,.
Differences in risk complications are night and day, all in favor of the prostate artery embolization benign prostatic hyperplasia or enlargement of the prostate gland it's the most common benign tumor of the prostate. Doctor Rosenberg really want us to take advantage of novel technologies such as robotics and the Magellan system to really make his procedure as successful as possible. And the procedure really relies on the fact of treating the root of the problem and that's the prostatic growth. The device offers us the ability to now use a catheter which we can shape in any direction and then guide within the body.
Patient Story Robotic Uterine Fibroid Embolization with Magellan
Ivana I love to walk. It really feels great. I'm a teacher. Sometimes I work with the preschoolers or first grade, and you want to kind of be on their level, when you're sitting down. So I wasn't able to sit down a lot of times. And I noticed a lot of bloating. My body just wasn't functioning the way that it normally was. Last year the doctor noticed that I had fibroids that were the size of lemons. I was in pain a lot. I couldn't wear anything that buttoned. It literally looked like I was nine months pregnant. I was embarrassed. I sought.
Medical advice from my OBGYN about other options other than a hysterectomy. And he referred me to Dr. Bagla. Dr. Bagla Ivana, when she sought us out to have uterine fibroid embolization and it was performed robotically, she was ecstatic and knew that she was undergoing a procedure that would offer her a chance to really change her life. With traditional surgery, such as hysterectomy or myomectomy, there is an open incision, and most women are not ecstatic about having a large incision in the lower part of their abdomen, the scar, the potential.
For bleeding, or infections. With fibroid embolization as a whole, that procedure can be performed minimally invasively on an outpatient basis sometimes, and just through a simple needle hole. What's unique about the Magellan System is its ability to get to both right and left uterine artery, which is critical for the procedure. It offers support for our microcatheter to then deliver the embolic material right into the correct place within the uterus. Ivana The puncture that he made with the Magellan Robotics System, literally it was a little bandaid. And I remember, I had trouble finding where the incision was. Now I'm breathing.
Morcellator Lawsuit Information Injury Recovery Institute
Attention The following is an important medical announcement for women diagnosed with cancer after having a hysterectomy or uterine fibroid surgery. If a power morcellator was used during your surgery you may qualify for a substantial cash award. The FDA estimates that 1 in 350 women have an unsuspected form of uterine cancer that cannot be detected prior to hysterectomy or uterine fibroid surgery. And has recently issued a warning to doctors and patients about the increased risk of power morcellators spreading these undetected cancer cells during laparoscopic procedures. If you or a loved one were diagnosed with cancer after a surgery involving a power morcellator.
Minimally invasive surgery faster recovery and smaller incision
You all set Ready! Ready. This was Lauren Singleton seven weeks ago, heading into surgery. It was one of my options to have a hysterectomy to recify my situation, so that's why I'm here. But Lauren's hysterectomy was done in a way that reduced her incision size, risk of infection and overall recovery time. Dr. Rose Kung and her team at Sunnybrook are Canadian leaders in minimally invasive surgeries, known as MIS. For conditions including fibroids, endometriosis and hysterectomies. Dr. Kung says MIS, where instruments are guided through tiny incisions and images are magnified on screens for the surgeons.
Has been a huge advance for patients. So typically when they had a big incision, they would take about six weeks off work. And they would be in pain for a good three weeks. Whereas when we do the surgery laproscopically or with the MIS approach, then they may take one to two weeks off work and the pain medication they take is milder. While some centres are using robots to do this type of surgery, studies comparing robots to humans found no added benefit, only added cost with the robotic approach. We have the highest volume.
Of surgeons, highly trained surgeons, and we do the most complicated cases not just in Toronto but across Canada. That means hundreds of surgical cases each year, help patients like Lauren get back to their lives, sooner. I actually teach fitness for a living so I'm very anxious to get back to work. Inhale and exhale!! She was home after one day, and says she didn't expect to feel as good as she did, as quickly as she did. Now, as hoped, she's back at work. One of the incisions I couldn't even find because it was so small, so I was very.
Impressed with how it went and how easy it was to heal, how quick the healing was. While MIS is more difficult for those who have scarring from previous procedures, Dr. Kung says increasing expertise is making this an option for more patients at all ages. Importantly, she says if you're not sure, get a second opinion, something Lauren did. Other people I had seen had just said, watch and wait, but I really wanted to get on with my life. And she gave my some viable options so I'm very happy. She changed.

New Minimally Invasive Options for Gynecologic Surgery at North Shore Medical Center NSMC
This is the biggest change I've seen in my practice in 20 years its what I am most excited about since I've come out of residency a patient may come and see me because she's got heavy bleeding and she was found to have a fibroid uterus as it turns out she's been dealing with this for about three years because her mother had the same thing and she had surgery using a traditional laparotomy big incision she's in the hospital for a week and didn't feel well again for eight weeks what I can now tell this patient is.
Let me bring you to the hospital I can use small incisions you can go home the same day i'll have you driving in three days and you can be back to work in two weeks you know we've been doing this for three years and we still say it's a a great operations really sweet operation because it really allows the patient a comfort level that they wouldn't have otherwise if they had to have a major operation or major incision the procedures would be as follows office tubal sterilization.
Office endometrial ablations for heavy bleeding then transitioning to the hospital we do laproscopic supracervical hysterectomies total laparoscopic hysterectomies we can combine those procedures with removal of the tubes and ovaries as well we can do laparoscopy for pelvic pain and endometriosis laparoscopy for removal the ovaries and tubes if we need to for history of breast cancer or for history of ovarian cycsts an example the recent patient is a patient of mine who had a fibroid uterus and the fibroid itself was the size of a grapefruit 10 centimeters.
She had not only heavy bleeding from this but pelvic pain and we were able to see her get her in to the hospital did a hysterectomy the specimen itself weighed 1.5 pounds she was able to go home the following day and she's back at work as we speak which is two and a half weeks after the procedure this is someone who's been living with pain for three to four years shoot me in the eye and say this is so easy how could I possibly have waited for so long.
Myoma Uterine Fibroids What is Myoma, Causes, Symptoms and Treatment for Myoma
A fibroid is a benign tumor that mainly consists have muscular tissue and usually grows inside the uterus. Fibroids are also called myomas. Its size ranges widely, from a small tumor the size of a pea to a large tumor almost the size of the uterus. Myomas are classified into three types, depending on the location where they are found. The intramural myoma, a fibroid that grows in the muscular wall of the uterus. This subserosal myoma, a fibroid located just beneath the outside mucosal covering of the uterus. Here the fibroid projects to the.
Outside and occasionally remains connected with the uterus only through a small stalk. The submucosal myoma, a tumor that grows beneath the surface of the uterus lining. Therefore, this type of fibroids can grow into the uterine cavity. The actual causes have development of a fibroid are still unclear. However, it has been documented that fibroids are associated with high levels of estrogen, the female sex hormone. Fibroids can only developed during reproductive years of women. Following menopause, the production of estrogen decreases which will usually cause fibroids to shrink or disappear.
Myomas are more common in nonpregnant and infertile women. In general, fibroids are asymptomatic or associated with just a few complaints if any complaints. If any complaints occur, then the location, size and type of the fibroid are the major factors. Fibroids can affect nearby structures. They can cause compression of the bladder, which may lead to urinary complaints, or may obstruct the intestine, which may result in constipation. Other complaints can be backaches, abdominal problems, menstrual flow disturbances. Fibroids can impede normal childbirth, which may require caesarean delivery. Fibroids relatively more often lead to miscarriages.
Whenever fibroids cause symptoms, they need to be removed or shrinked. Medications sometimes cause fibroid to shrink by blocking the production and secretion of estrogen. In other cases, surgery may be required to remove the fibroid. The type of surgery depends on the location of the fibroid. Sometimes it's possible to remove the fibroid with the help of the tube entered through the vagina and the procedure is called hysteroscopic myomectomy. In other cases, surgery through the abdominal wall may be necessary. In the case of a large fibroid, hysterectomy may be the only solution.
