Rheumatoid Arthritis & Surgical Treatment in Indore, rheumatologyindore.com

Rheumatoid Arthritis & Surgical Treatment in Indore – Dr. Ashish Badika

The majority of patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) never require surgery if they are diagnosed at an early stage of disease and they are taking regular treatment under Rheumatologist care. However, some patients may require surgery in form of Joint replacements, arthrodesis, and synovectomy.

Joint Replacement

Patients can be advised for joint replacements for major joints like the shoulders, hips, or knees and minor joints like the fingers and toes. Joint replacement surgery is removing all or part of a damaged joint and replacing it with a synthetic replacement.

Arthrodesis

The injured joint is removed during arthrodesis, and the adjacent bones are bonded together. The technique severely restricts movement while increasing stability and relieving pain in the afflicted joints.

Arthrodesis is typically performed to treat arthritic ankles, toes, wrists, or finger joints. It can also be used to stabilise uncomfortable spine joints (called spinal fusion). Arthrodesis may necessitate the use of bone grafts extracted from the patient’s own pelvis.

Synovectomy

The surgeon removes the inflammatory synovial tissue around the joint during this operation. The surgeon seeks to alleviate or eradicate the patient’s symptoms by eliminating the afflicted tissue. But since every tissue can’t be removed from the affected area, inflammation, oedema, and discomfort may reoccur.

A patient must consult his doctor/surgeon to get the right advice and suggestions on which operation if required, is right for him/her.

What is Autoimmune Disease? Dr. Ashish Badika

What is Autoimmune Disease? Dr. Ashish Badika, rheumatologyindore.com

A well-functioning immune system protects the body against disease and various infections. When the immune system fails, it starts destroying healthy cells, tissues, and organs without any purpose, or we can say mistakenly. These attacks, known as autoimmune diseases, have the ability to damage any region of the body, compromising bodily function and potentially posing a life-threatening hazard.

There are more than 100 autoimmune diseases. Some are well known to us, such as type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis, while others are rare and difficult to diagnose. With unusual autoimmune diseases, people may suffer years before getting noticed about the internal damage with no proper diagnosis due to lack of understanding. While most of these diseases have no cure or treatment, some diseases need close monitoring and may require lifelong treatment to ease symptoms.

Autoimmune diseases are affecting more people for reasons unknown. Likewise, the causes of these diseases remain a mystery.

Studies indicate that these diseases may be the result of interactions between genetic and environmental factors. Even lifestyle has increased the chances for these diseases. Some studies also indicate that gender, race, and ethnicity characteristics link for developing an autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases are more common when people are in contact with certain environmental exposures also.

One must be cautious of such diseases and must have a regular visit to their known physician & get the check-up done for such diseases.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Can Lead to Increased Risks of Heart Attacks - Dr. Ashish Badika

Rheumatoid Arthritis Can Lead to Increased Risks of Heart Attacks – Dr. Ashish Badika

Rheumatoid arthritis can increase the risk of heart disease as it is associated with inflammation that affects not only the joints but also the heart. If left untreated, it can cause active inflammation to spread throughout the body, including the cardiovascular system, which can increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Effects on the heart in people with rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation spreads to the blood vessels and leads to narrowing. Arteries supplying the heart with oxygen and nutrients can get blocked in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, even if they do not have significant CVD risk factors. This can lead to angina, heart attacks, sudden death, and heart failure.

People with rheumatoid arthritis have a higher risk of heart attack and are twice as likely to develop heart failure and peripheral vascular disease compared to people without rheumatoid arthritis. Patients with active rheumatoid arthritis also have a higher risk of heart attacks than patients with controlled diseases.

People must consult their doctor for rheumatoid arthritis as this disease is treatable but only if taken care of in its early stage. Ignorance may lead to unrepairable damages not only increased chances of a heart attack but also sudden death.
