Paras Global Hospital Darbhanga, leading multi super specialty hospital of Mithilanchal has launched a facility for AV fistula. Patients undergoing regular dialysis sessions not just need a clean and safe environment along with specialized care, they also need AV fistula formation for regular maintenance of dialysis. It is a unique procedure through which the vein and the artery can be connected through a catheter and the dialysis sessions can be carried out with minimum complications and long standing issues. It is a state of the art procedure that ensures that the pain and complications in dialysis is reduced. It also provides maximum patient benefit. This facility is provided under the guidance of Dr Abhishek Bose, Consultant Urology, Paras Global Hospital, Darbhanga.
Dr. Abhishek Kumar Bose is a Urologist and Kidney Transplant Surgeon. He specializes in Kidney Stones Treatment, Prostate & Bladder Cancer Treatment. He also has expertise in treating Bladder Prolapse, Interstitial Cystitis, Prostatitis along with case of Overactive Bladder. Dr. Bose has experience in Kidney Transplant and A V fistula /venous grafting/ CAPD for peritoneal dialysis catheter insertion along with management of urological malignancies by minimally invasive methods like laparoscopic radical nephrectomy / partial nephrectomy/ radical prostatectomy/ radical cystectomies and laparoscopic adrenalectomy. He has extensive experience in pediatric reconstructive surgery like hypospadias surgery and laparoscopic pyeloplasty.
Hospital’s specialist, Dr. Abhishek Bose shares, “Kidney patients should get their AV fistula formed as soon as the serum creatinine exceeds the normal range. AV fistula is completely different from piles. Many a time patients confuse it with a fistula caused by piles. Recently we had to create a fistula for the Rajad Supremo because of his kidney disease.”
Dr. Bose has created around 150 AV fistulas at Paras Global Hospital, Darbhanga.
Dr. Bose adds, “Patients come not just from Mithila and north Bihar but also from Patna and other nearby districts to get their AV fistulas formed at Paras Global Hospital. An AV fistula is created in the arms of a patient. For right-handers, it is created in the left arm and for left-handers, it is done in the right arm. During the formation of a fistula, a vein and an artery are connected. It is created under the skin in one’s arm. An AV fistula stands for Arteriovenous fistula. Its surgery takes an hour to get over. In case a fistula is not formed, the veins do not receive enough blood which causes problems during dialysis. Hence, its formation is extremely important. Patients should prevent lifting heavy objects from the hand with a fistula; they should not get their BP checked from the same hand and should also not get any vaccination done in the same arm. The fistula generally creates a whooshing noise and patients must get used to it. The sound can be heard even through a stethoscope. Patients must take special care of their eating habits and must stick to the diet recommended by their doctor. They must also regularly get their BP and sugar checked and make sure they stay under control. Apart from this, they must get a Hepatitis B Vaccination.”
Paras Global Hospital Darbhanga is the leading hospital for nephrology, kidney disease and chronic renal disorder. It is also the leading hospital for cardiology, orthopedics and joint replacement , gastroenterology & GI surgery to list a few.
