New Surgical Technique By Mgm Docs | Indore News

Indore: Local surgeons MGM Medical College have developed a laparoscopic technique that reduces the cost of the implant during lower abdominal hernia surgeries from Rs 20,000 to Rs 10.
A nailer – metallic and biodegradable – used to secure mesh to tissue during laparoscopic surgery in inguinal hernia cases has been replaced with a cyanoacrylate compound. The stapler costs Rs 18,000-20,000. The cyanoacrylate we use costs only Rs 10, MGM Medical Associate professor at college Dr Arvind Shukla Tell yourself.
Cyanoacrylates are a family of fast-acting adhesives with a variety of uses, including in the medical field. “This is the first time cyanoacrylate has been used in this way,” he said.
Shukla, who invented the technique about two years ago, said the reduction in the cost of surgery has been a boon for poor patients reaching the my hospital. “We have successfully performed 55 to 60 laparoscopic surgeries using cyanoacrylate over the past year,” he said.
Unlike using staples to secure the mesh after removing the hernia laparoscopically, the cyanoacrylate is pressed into place using syringes – a simple process that does not involve sutures.
“Cyanoacrylate is well accepted. Patients reported less pain, compared to staplers,” the associate professor said.
The technique has been accepted in the international forum. I
At a recent Korean Society of Endoscopic and Laparoscopic Surgeons (KSLES) International Symposium, a presentation on the technique by Dr. Shukla was deemed the best and selected in the global forum. TNN
