Uterine leiomyomas/fibroids are among the most common problems in African women. They are a frequent cause of pelvic pain and abnormal uterine bleeding and are thought to be involved in infertility.
Myomectomy is the surgical removal of fibroids from the uterus. It allows the uterus to be left in place and, for some women, makes pregnancy more likely than before.
In general, myoma/fibroid growth is a result of the stimulation of estrogen, which is present until menopause. Many myomas begin to shrink as menopause removes the estrogen stimulation and many myoma-related symptoms resolve spontaneously shortly after menopause.

Viral video of a man with cancer

Video of Ali Banat, who is in his last stage of cancer, goes viral.

The Australian was diagnosed with Cancer, some months ago, and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. .

When asked why he called the illness a gift from the Allah, the sobbing Ali Banat said the disease was opportunity for transformation. Despite having the dreaded disease all over his body, Ali Banat psyched himself for the day he will breathe his last. .

The once successful businessman chose to reconsider his bountiful lifestyle. He got rid of his cars, a fleet that comprises of Ferrari Spider, and had to do away with his expensive watches as he was determined to shun the worldly life in preparation for the day he shall depart the earth.

A trip to his room shows the luxurious lifestyle which he was living, from designer bracelets that cost around $60, 000, expensive watches, designers sunglasses and top of the range sneakers – some of which have made way to under-priviledged communities in Africa.

Messages of support from people across the world have been sent to Ali Banat, who has established a charity organization that has constructed a masjid and school in Africa, which will serve as continuing charity when he passes on. He is now in his final stages, and today, he made this video, which has since gone viral".

Video: Shoulder Dystocia

Shoulder dystocia is an obstetric complication of cephalic (head) vaginal deliveries during which the foetal shoulders do not deliver after the head has emerged from the mother’s introitus.

It occurs when one or both shoulders becomes impacted against the bones of the maternal pelvis, as shown in the video.

Proper management of shoulder dystocia is important to avoid untoward outcomes.

Some foetal manoeuvres include cleidotomy (surgical division of the clavicles or collar bone); Zavanelli manoeuvre ; Rubins manoeuvre.

Maternal manoeuvres include Suprapubic pressure; Sims manoeuvre (lateral decubitus); McRoberts manoeuvre;Gaskins manoeuvre (all fours).

Brachial plexus injury to the newborn is the most common complication of shoulder dystocia. Most of these injuries resolve before discharge from the hospital. However, some last longer and take weeks or up to 18 months to resolve and a few can be permanent, with varying levels of limited motion depending on the nature and extent of the injury.

Another complication is Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) which can result from uterine atony caused by either overdistention from foetal macrosomia or dysfunctional contractility caused by mechanical obstruction.

Did Doctors Really Kill This Patient?

Facebook user says a doctor is responsible for her nephew's death. She wrote:

The picture above is our sister Edith's son who was murdered 2 days ago by Nigerian Doctor and nurses at hospital in Lagos. This young man just completed his undergraduate young degree in Nigeria and was waiting for his NYSC Posting when he suffered from inflammed appendix and attended a hospital in anticipation for having his appendix removed successfully.
According to his mom and siblings, this handsome youngster was admitted 7 days ago to the unnamed hospital and the doctor placed him on IVF all through the 7 days and asked him not to eat anything ( NBM ). On Tuesday, he did the surgery with bilateral dissection as though it was Laparotomy.
This young man was brought out of theatrewithout a catheter. On Wednesday, this young man requested to urinate and Nigerian nurses insisted that they have no bed pan nor urine bottle for his use . In desperation the young man took himself to the loo and collapsed on floor, bleeding profusely there and later died without any so called nurses to help him.
Now if this young man was your brother, what will you do? Please respond .

A Tribute To Mothers

You really need to read this by @iamkokun:

"Raw and unedited picture of a mother breastfeeding her 2weeks old baby after a C- section delivery. This is priceless. This is what some mothers go through. The pains. The stretch mark. The shapeless body. The flappy tummy. Some woman use corset and body magic to hide it. Some use push up bra to feel sexy but when they get into the bathroom, naked and see the real body , they remind themselves that they produced a creature, a human being. Please women learn to love yourself. Love your body. Motherhood is a beautiful thing. I pray that those trying for a child will get pregnant. Men , learn to love your wives. What we go through isn't easy. don't misbehave, don't cheat on your woman don't beat them. don't deny your woman there right. All they need is love , transparency, care and support. After all these suffering some men without conscience hit their wives. Some don't care if she has eaten . Some even abandon her to cater for the baby. Some spend more on their girlfriend forgetting they have a nursing wife at home. On judgement day , I wonder the excuse you will give God for maltreating your wife. Some men even have the guts to tell their wives that she is not a woman just because she delivered through CS . I believe a true woman is the one who had her child(ren) through surgery. She has to go through pains. Serious pains. She has to deny herself food for days at least 3days. She can't eat normal food for a month. She can't even bath herself well . Unlike the vagina birth. Men , no matter the method of delivery treat her like a queen. Cos most of you tend to forget so fast , For a mother and child to come out alive is God's grace. Pregnancy and Labour is between life and death. Learn to respect mothers. #respectmothers#"

Man vows to write a petition against a doctor for causing his sister's appendix to rupture.

He wrote:

"It is with a deep pain that I write this.

My baby sister just left the theatre right now. A surgery was performed on her, the doctors said its appendix. The said appendix broke open in the stomach caused by the improper attention/healthcare and delay she got from the first hospital she was taken to, one Chinonye Hospital, a private hospital whose owner is said to have some political post in the health sector of Abia state. She went to a private hospital because government hospitals are on strike.

The Managing Doctor of this private hospital recommended MP and widal (malaria and typhoid) tests when my sister was crying of sharp tearing pains in her stomach, pains that caused her to leave her project work in school for a medical attention, the quack doctor pumped bags of drip into her body last night without knowing what the condition was. Of course the pain persisted as expected. So they left my sister lying there unattended to throughout the night to the late morning of today. She called me, weeping and helpless. I almost cried on phone too.

When my mother got to the hospital to get her out to a better hospital, the doctor inflated his bill for 2bags of drip to the sum of N53,000, his reason being that my sister insulted him while in pain, unattended to. I asked to talk to the doctor, he refused. He was determined to keep her there until the money is paid even if she died.

Well, the money was paid and she was was taken to a better private hospital, a successful surgery was performed on her at the cost of N120,000. Even at the hospital where the surgery was performed, Living World Hospital, Aba, the doctors insisted that the whole amount billed must be paid before the surgery begins indifferent on the fact that today is weekend hence banks are closed. N20,000 was billed separately even before diagnosis.

I thought doctors take an oath of service? Of what significance is that oath? I am going to get the name of that doctor who delayed my sister and caused appendix to burst open in her stomach, I'm going to send a petition against him to the Medical Association of Nigeria. I will make sure his license of practise is revoked. I won't stop until I achieve that."

A doctor shares a good samaritan experience

Dr. Shola Dosunmu shares how a patient's life was saved by a good samaritan. She wrote on Facebook:

"Two days ago , I learnt the true meaning of “goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life”.

"A patient was rushed into my practice after he sustained a severe neck injury. He was pocked in the neck with a 16mm iron rod while in motion on a power bike, the blood gushing out of his neck had soaked his suit and he was just bleeding helplessly on the road when a lady stopped to help. Without thinking of the consequences of this man dying in her car, she put him on her back sit and drove to the hospital. As if this was not enough help, she made a huge deposit and said “doctor pls do all you can, I know he’s lost a lot of blood”. At this point, all I thought of was how to keep this patient alive.

Patient was taken to OR, thank God the rod missed the major vessels in the neck, we were able to stop bleeding and stabilize the patient. It was at this point I went to break the good news to the GOOD SAMARITAN, who I had thought was his relative and to my shock she said she just stopped to help. For a moment I thought wao! Am I in Nigeria? In this era of change? You bring someone you don’t know to the hospital and pay the bill? Surely goodness and mercy was following this dude, he got help just on time."

We do still have some good people after all.

University Of Calabar in Darkness Over Debt

Authorities of the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital have disagreed with the Port-Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHEDC) over an estimated N36m bill that has thrown the tertiary health institution into darkness.

Following the development, investigation on Tuesday revealed that critical medical equipment had broken down, while the queue for patients expected to undergo surgeries has been on the increase.

Chief Medical Director of UCTH, Dr. Thomas Agan, said the action of PHEDC has crippled activities in the health institution.

Agan, who solicited the intervention of the National Assembly to prevail on the Federal Government to take over the management of electricity bills, called on distribution companies to apply caution when dealing with health institutions, as it could lead to unnecessary loss of lives.

He said, “One thing I want to let the public know is that a hospital is not a profit-making venture. All we do is service delivery and if you disconnect us, you have crippled the whole system.

“When the business manager led a team to disconnect us, we had six patients on the operating table. No matter how you want to make money, you do it with some degree of human face.

“I don’t know how they arrived at the estimated bill that has accumulated over time. Could it be that they just walked into the hospital premises to see the size before coming up with such a bogus amount as a bill.

“As I speak, because of this incessant power cut, most of our equipment have broken down. The radiology equipment and several other sensitive facilities have broken down.

“My appeal now is that either the Federal Government take over the servicing of power to the hospitals or bills coming in from the electricity company go directly to the Federal Government for settlement.”

Zimbabweans protest closure of largest hospital

Zimbabweans launched an outcry on social media on Tuesday after a leaked memo announced the temporary closure of the country’s main referral hospital.

The Harare Central Hospital was only able to perform emergency operations due to the lack of essential drugs and medicines, according to the hospital’s leaked internal memo dated Sept. 16.

Harare Central Hospital, responsible for a catchment area of roughly 1 million people, cares for more than 110,000 patients annually and has more than 1,000 beds.

Citizens vented their anger about the hospital’s closure on news websites and WhatsApp.
The outrage was particularly focused on President Robert Mugabe, who regularly flies to Singapore for medical treatment.

Public hospitals in Zimbabwe have been suffering financial shortages for several years now, with many patients forced to bring their own linen and purchase their own medication at pharmacies.
“The shortage of drugs and equipment at central hospitals has reached crisis proportions, with patients going for days without proper treatment.

Kaduna Threatens To Prosecute Parents Who Refuse Vaccination

The Kaduna State Government has warned that any parent found obstructing health workers from immunising children against polio will be arrested and prosecuted accordingly.

The warning came following the commencement of another round of polio immunisation campaign across the 23 local government areas in the state.

A statement by the Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to Governor Nasir el-Rufai, Mr. Samuel Aruwan, said government would not tolerate a situation where the laxity of some parents expose children to a bleak future.

The statement said the task force on the immunisation was being headed by the governor because of the importance of the exercise.

“To keep Kaduna State polio-free is a mission that all parents must support for the sake of all children. Therefore, all parents have been urged to help make the polio immunisation campaign a success by making all their children below the age of five available for immunisation,” Aruwan said.

“The state government wishes to clarify that any parent found obstructing health workers from carrying out their statutory functions will be prosecuted accordingly as prescribed by the law.

“The government has further directed that all eligible children in transit within the state be made available for immunisation at all transit sites – motor parks, road blocks, railway stations, airports among others during the period of the campaign” the statement said.

It said further that the teams of vaccinators would work with FRSC and NDLEA officials at partial road blocks to vaccinate children below five who are in transit on highways within the state.

In the past, religious and traditional beliefs had undermined the efforts of health workers from administering polio vaccine to children.


Is this the worst hospital in Nigeria?

A Facebook user, Emmanuel Ojo, posted these pictures and wrote the following:

“I am from Ogun West and I can tell you for free that in Ogun State, when it comes to overall rural infrastructural development and socioeconomic advancement initiatives, we cannot really boast of anything tangible under this government.

Near to non-existence as 90% of the few developmental initiatives and projects have been deliberately abandoned by the government. No portable water. No good academic environment. No good roads. No encouragement and assistance on farming. When it comes to human empowerment via government assistance, we are nowhere to be found under this regime. We aren’t lazy… Basically we help ourselves with or without the government. We are enterprising and self-reliant, though a little bit poor.”

The post went viral last week with many sites calling it "The worst hospital in Nigeria" but we know this is not a hospital. It is a Primary Health Centre (PHC). The real question is: " Is this okay for a PHC?"

Facebook user narrates bad experience at LASUTH

A Facebook user narrates his bad experience at LASUTH. He wrote:
"it saddens me how we don't value lives in our health sector. I was "unprivileged" to visit a friend at LASUTH some few minutes ago and I had to thank God for the opportunity to be able to afford a private GP. I live partially abroad so I have access to a medical aid and I've asked myself severally why we can't have a functioning medical aid in Nigeria. I doubt the effectiveness of the NHiS.
My friend is doing her masters at UNILAG, she fell sick last week but after the UNilag clinic couldn't help out, her mum took her to LASUTH this afternoon , when I visited her, she was one a bed with 2 other male patients. I asked her why and she said the doctors refused to attend to her. According to her, the doctor said if she was a student of LASU, he might have given her a bed but since she is a student of Unilag, she should go to LUTH. Her mum had to insist for her to be given a drip.
My observations
1) the second male patient was being attended to on a wheel chair, he was so immobile and his case was critical as they could not locate a vain in him yet they could not find him a bed,
2) the patients have to buy everything they need including the gloves.
3) The nurses were very nonchalant about how they carry out their duties
My Solution
1) We need to organize an intervention for health workers across Nigeria, I have noticed that this is an African problem especially in public hospitals. Some months ago, I was privileged to be invited to IOH LAGOS to work with the nurses on how to relate with their patients, one of the key observation I noted from their responses was that the environment and challenges they face in carrying out their duties influence their relationship with patients,
There are lots of root causes that need to be addressed while solving the health sector problem. Corruption is just one.
Generally, as Nigerians, I'm not sure of how we value lives unless it's ours.

I think his solutions are pretty reasonable.

Maj-Gen (Dr.) Falola Demoted For Helping Nursing Students

A Special Court Martial of the Nigerian Armed Forces  has demoted the former director of 68 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital, Yaba, in Lagos, Major General Patrick Falola, to the rank of Brigadier General for allowing Nigerian students studying in Espan Formation University Cotonou in Benin Republic to use the hospital for their clinical training without due clearance from the army headquarters between July and September 2015.

Delivering judgment in the case against Maj General Falola, who is presently a Commander of the Armed Forces Hospital in Kano, President of the Special Court Martial, Air Vice Marshal James Gbum, sentenced the accused officer to a reduction in rank from Major General to Brigadier General on count one of the charge. He was, however, discharged and acquitted of the second count of fraudulent misapplication of the hospital’s property.

Lawyer to Major General Falola, Wing Commander Enokela Onyilo-Uloko [Rtd], however, faulted the conviction, saying it was a premeditated attempt to taint the unblemished record of his client whom he described as a distinguished medical officer with outstanding records.

He explained: “On hearing of this kind of conviction, we know that it is based on nothing. There is no law, no instruction put on the ground by the armed forces that the senior officer needs to take permission from the higher authority before allowing such training to Nigerian citizens.

“No such law or instruction was tendered in evidence, but they are saying that he should have used his initiative. When there is no law criminalizing an act, when that act is done, it does not amount to criminal offence.” The lawyer vowed to appeal the judgment of the Special Court Martial. However, the judgment of the Army court martial is subject to confirmation by the Nigerian Army Council.

During the proceeding, the department of the Military Secretary (Army) presented the service record of the General to the Special Court Martial. On records, Major General Patrick Falola was commissioned as a Lieutenant in 1982, he was described as an officer of impeccable character noted for his intelligence, honesty, transparency, dedication to work, enthusiasm for Military service and has always been an outstanding medical officer of the Military. As a senior consultant ophthalmologist, he served Nigeria as the chairman Ophthalmological Society of Nigeria (OSN) Lagos State Chapter, where he represented the army very well.

According to the same records, Major General Falola, apart from the 68 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital, has also commanded several other Military Hospitals including the Military Hospital Lagos (Greek), 3 Div. Hospital Jos and the Armed Forces Specialist Hospital Kano. It was noted in the records that he significantly upgraded all these hospitals, for example, he refurbishment and setup the Intensive Care Unit and Neonatal Unit at both Greek and Yaba Hospitals.

The Army further stated that he transformed the Bonny Camp (Lagos) Eye Centre to a world-class status; he introduced Laser Equipment worth millions of naira at no cost to the Nigeria Army, but by sheer dedication to work and resourcefulness. He is reputed to be an exemplary military administrator, clinician and surgeon. He was singly commended for his prompt and professional handling of Cholera outbreak in Jos and proactive initiatives to prevent Lassa fever and Ebola outbreaks in the Barracks. In all his years, there has never been a breach of military discipline reported against him.

Sad way to treat such a GOOD and HUMBLE man.

Resident Doctors Give September 30 Ultimatum

The National Association of Resident Doctors has asked the federal and state governments to resolve all outstanding issues in the health sector before September 30 or face an industrial action by its members.

The newly-elected President of the association, Dr. John Onyebueze, announced the ultimatum at the end of NARD’s 26th Annual General Meeting in Enugu.

The resident doctors flayed government at all levels over what it described as the poor state of health care delivery in the country.

He added that the association was unhappy with the disruption of the structure of the residency programme by the chief medical directors of teaching hospitals.

Listing the grievances of the resident doctors, he added, “Are you talking about the rickety beds in the accident and emergency wards?

“We do not even have gloves and emergency tools. We do not have pens to write and make prescriptions. We are saying that this thing must not continue.”

Continuing, Onyebueze said only the implementation of outstanding agreements would forestall an industrial action by resident doctors across the country.

The association said it did not agree with the ‘no work, no pay’ rule canvassed by the government during industrial actions.

“In line with extant labour laws, we reject in its entirety the ‘no work no pay’ rule as currently being applied by the Federal Ministry of Health,” Onyebueze said.

He condemned what he described as the  “unjust sacking of doctors.”

Caput medusae

Picture shows a severe case of Caput Medusae

Caput Medusae is the term used to describe tortuous veins when they become prominent on the surface of the abdomen. It is classically associated with portal hypertension and liver cirrhosis.

The differential diagnosis for this particular case also included Inferior Vena Cava Obstruction (IVCO). To distinguish between Caput Medusae or IVCO, occlusion of the vein is required. If blood flows towards the legs, Caput Medusae is more likely. If blood flows towards the head, IVCO is more likely.

The name caput medusae(Latin for "head of Medusa") originates from the apparent similarity to Medusa's head, which had venomous snakes in place hair.

Russian Hacking Group Leaks Williams Sisters, Simone Biles Medical Records

The World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) has announced that its database was accessed by a Russian hacking group, which posted the confidential medical data of several US athletes online on Monday.

The cyber espionage group, known as Fancy Bear, released records on four female American Olympic athletes: tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams, gymnastics multi-gold medallist Simone Biles and basketball player Elena Delle Donne.

The attack has forced Simone Biles to reveal she has Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) which made her use psychostimulants like amphetamines.

US Anti-Doping Agency (Usada) chief Travis Tygart said in a statement that it was “unthinkable” for hackers to “illegally obtain confidential medical information in an attempt to smear athletes to make it look as if they have done something wrong.” He added: “In fact, in each of the situations, the athlete has done everything right in adhering to the global rules for obtaining permission to use a needed medication.”

Venus Williams has also released a statement that she was disappointed by the hack and indicated whatever drug she took was approved.

Nigerian doctor beats up a patient

Dentist charged with manslaughter in 3-year-old patient's death

A former Hawaii dentist has been charged with manslaughter for the 2014 death of a three-year-old girl who suffered a heart attack during a dental procedure, dying a month later.

A grand jury indicted Lilly Geyer Thursday on 37 counts, including manslaughter, medical assistance fraud and assault, the state attorney general's office said.

Finley Boyle lapsed into a coma after receiving an array of sedatives and anesthesia in preparation for cavity fillings and root canals, according to an autopsy report. The report concluded the heart attack was likely the result of the five drugs, which included Demerol, hydroxyzine and chlorohydrate. She was also given laughing gas and an injection of a local anesthetic, lidocaine with epinephrine, the report said.

Geyer's practice, Island Dentistry for Children in Kailua, has since closed.

Geyer is currently travelling, said her attorney, Michael Green. He said he would make arrangements for her to surrender to authorities.

"She's not practicing so they can't say she remains a danger to anybody," Green said. "I'm not unsympathetic to the family of this little girl who died, but this was not a woman who was hell bent on hurting people."

Geyer has been distraught since the girl's death, Green said. "I'm just really worried about her mental health," he said.

The Honolulu medical examiner classified the death as an accident.

Geyer's insurance company settled a lawsuit by the Boyle family for an undisclosed amount.

Richard Fried, the attorney who represented the parents in their lawsuit, said they're pleased about the indictment. The case frightened Hawaii parents and changed how they select dentists for young children, he said: "I think folks are much more cautious now about credentials and sedation."

After the girl's death, the state started investigating Geyer's use of the drugs on patients.

The indictment accuses Geyer of making false statements to the medical assistance program to get higher compensation than she was entitled to receive. She's accused of illegally administering Meperidine and Chloral-Hydrate. One of those patients was a two-year-old child who suffered serious injury, according to the indictment.

A dental assistant at Geyer's former office was charged earlier this year with assault and drug violations for the two-year-old, who was unconscious for 12 hours after she was given the narcotics during a routine checkup.
