Know the Underlying Causes of Coughing Up Blood!

March 1, 2017 0 54 0 minutes, 58 seconds read

Hemoptysis is when a patient coughs up blood or blood sputum from bronchi, larynx trachea or lungs. The most common underlying causes that can be detected with CT are:

  • Tuberculosis
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Chronic Bronchitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Fungal infections
  • Lung malignancy

*Massive Hemoptysis is the bleeding more than 300ml within 24 hours.

How is Hemoptysis evaluated?

The imaging modalities that are pertinent to the evaluation of hemoptysis are:

  • Chest Radiograph- It lateralize the bleeding with a higher degree of certainty and can often help in detecting underlying parenchymal and pleural abnormalities.


  • MDCT- Contrast-enhanced MDCT is capable of demonstrating the site of bleeding. It provides high-resolution angiographic studies of thoracic and upper abdominal vasculature that are useful prior to anticipated bronchial artery embolization or surgical intervention.


  • Thoracic aortography (Bronchial artery embolization)- It is the most effective therapy for controlling massive hemoptysis. In more than 90% of hemoptysis cases requiring intervention with arterial embolization or surgery, the bronchial arteries are responsible for bleeding.

Dr. Vivek Saxena says technical success has been achieved in more than 75-90% cases and recurrent blood is witnessed in approximately 20% cases, which is primarily due to non-recognition of a nonbronchial systemic collateral or pulmonary cause of hemoptysis.

Know About the Minimally Invasive Treatment of Fibroids!

January 10, 2017 0 240 2 minutes, 16 seconds read

Any women would get petrified when you mention that she has got fibroid tumors. More than 25% fibroids are symptomatic; therefore there is no reason to worry because the threat of malignancy is low.

What are its Symptoms?

It has been seen that 100 out of 1000 women visit the doctor for treatment of fibroids. The symptoms can be often distressing and may include:

  • Menorrhagia
  • Infertility
  • Pressure related pelvic pain
  • Urinary and bowel disturbances

Conventionally, hysterectomy was the mainstay of this condition, while Myomectomy was done in patients who desired fertility. But these surgical procedures are associated with significant morbidity.

Experts use medical treatment with Mirena IUS and gonadotrophim releasing hormone analogues to treat symptomatic fibroids. However, Mirena can only be used in patients having small uterus, without distorting endometrial cavity.

Laparoscopic Techniques-A Major Advancement in Women’s Health

In the past few years, the focus is now on treating the fibroids with uterine preservation. There have been significant advancements in the minimally invasive techniques that have led to the development of uterine sparing treatment modalities for symptomatic fibroids. The two emerging alternative treatment options:

  • Uterine Fibroid Embolisation
  • MRI-guided high intensity focused ultrasound energy

What exactly is Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)?

It is a highly popular and efficacious treatment for uterine fibroids. More than 50,000 procedures have been carried out across the world. It is indicated for most symptomatic fibroids and even adenomyosis of uterus. The contraindications can are: acute or pelvic inflammatory diseases, gynecological malignancy, uncorrected coagulopathy and severe allergy to iodinated contrast media.

Who are the ideal candidates of UFE?

UFE is specially recommended in:

  • Patients who are unwilling or unfit for surgery
  • Obese patients with fibroids
  • Patients with coexistent adenomyosis
  • Patients in which myomectomy is technically challenging as in cervical fibroids
  • Young patients in whom the only surgical option is hysterectomy

Is UFE an efficient procedure?

85-90% of women who have had an UFE experience total relief in heavy bleeding, pain or bulk-related symptoms. The reoccurrence of treated fibroids is rare as evidenced by a study done couple of years’ back, in which a fibroid that had been embolized regrew.

Are there any complications of the procedure?

There can be minor complications like nausea, vomiting and chronic vaginal discharge that is witnessed in approximately 5% of patients. However, major complications are rare and seen in less than 1% of patients. Premature ovarian failure is seen in less than 2% patients and 15% of perimenopausal patients.

What are post-operative complications?

Fibroid embolization usually requires a hospital stay of one night. Pain relief and anti-inflammatory medications are prescribed following the procedure to treat cramping and pain. Many women resume light activities in a few days and the majority of women are able to return to normal activities within seven to 10 days.

Intervention Radiology - A Newer Approach to Diagnosis & Treatment

November 23, 2016 0 93 1 minute, 23 seconds read

How is Interventional Radiology Gaining Importance?

The IR procedures are being used to diagnose and treat disease is all body parts. These are the minimally invasive procedures that are performed by expert imaging specialists by doing ultrasound, X-ray, CT scan and MRI.

It is true that most diseases (general or cancer-related) are treated by using different combinations of medical and surgical treatment, despite that IR procedures are gaining momentum.

How long is the Procedure?

A majority of the procedures are either carried out on an outpatient basis or require a day care or a short duration of admission. These procedures are safe and significantly cost-effective as compared to conventional surgical treatments. Moreover, these procedures have a faster recovery and early resumption to routine lifestyle

What are the procedures?

IR procedures being performed by us include:

Image-Guided Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology ( FNAC ) & Biopsy :

- For confirming diagnosis in cancers and infections that require definitive treatment.

Biopsy includes and not limited to Lung, Breast, Muscle, Liver, Kidney, Prostate etc.

- Aspirations & drainage of cysts for cell diagnosis & microbial culture.

Primary Treatment:

  • Guided placement of catheters to drain pus / fluid collections in body parts that are difficult reach e.g. Liver abscesses, Pancreatic abscesses, Prostatic abscesses.
  • Drainage of Obstructed bile ducts e.g. In gall bladder cancer and CBD obstruction.

Post-Treatment Care

At Max, we have a specialised IR team to shorten the road to recovery for patients.  We offer palliative care by managing:

-Pain relief: Nerve block in pain relief for abdominal tumours and chronic pancreatitis.

-Nascogastric and nasojejunal feeding tube placement in cases with difficult tube placement e.g. Esophageal narrowing from tumors / chemical ingestions etc.
