A team of doctors, led by Dr. Mohan Kulhari & Dr Baljeet Khanduja, Consultant - ENT/ Otorhinolaryngology, Fortis Escorts Hospital, Jaipur successfully performed hemithyroidectomy (the surgery to remove part of the thyroid gland) and removed the cyst from the 53-year-old man.

The patient was suffering from the symptoms such as pain in throat, difficulty in swallowing and fullness in the left side of the neck. Upon performing a contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CECT) and an ultrasonography (USG), a large cyst adjacent to the left lobe of the thyroid, abutting the trachea and esophagus was diagnosed. Upon testing through fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC), suggestive of a colloid goiter (benign, noncancerous enlargement of thyroid tissue) was diagnosed though he had no symptoms of hyperparathyroidism, and calcium level was normal.

 Cystic disease of the parathyroid gland is quite rare as compared to adenomas (a benign tumor) and only around 300 cases of parathyroid cyst have been reported worldwide till date. This case was tricky because radiological examinations and FNAC indicated two different conditions – thyroid nodule with cystic degeneration and parathyroid cyst. The team finally decided to go ahead with hemithyroidectomy (surgical removal of all or part of the thyroid gland and the cyst). Besides, the patient has a family history of cancer, the challenge was to remove the thin wall cysts intact to prevent recurrence and for definitive diagnosis.

The recurrent laryngeal nerves lie on both sides of the windpipe in the area where the parathyroid glands are located. These nerves control the vocal cords and any injury to one of the nerves may cause hoarseness or a whispering quality to the voice. The nerve was detached very carefully from the cyst. We removed the left half of his thyroid gland and brought out the cyst intact which was detected as large parathyroid cyst (6.5 x 5.5 x 4.5 cm) through histopathology.

A team of doctors at Fortis Escorts Hospital, Jaipur performed a landmark surgery when a swap kidney transplant was conducted through laparoscopic technique, a first in the state. All the FOUR surgeries were completed within SIX hours by the team consisting of two surgeons, two nephrologist, four anaesthetics and support staff.

In the case, the mother of 24 year old man from Haryana was willing to donate her kidney to her son but it did not match with him. Wife of 44 year old man from Rajasthan wanted to save her husband’s life by donating one of her kidneys, but she did not match. Doctors treating both the men of renal failures in Jaipur got in touch with each other, necessary permission was taken from the state government to swap the donors and a landmark surgery was performed on them at Fortis escorts hospital on July 27.

Kidney failure is the extreme state of kidney diseases that is on rise due to increase in lifestyle and metabolic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes, to name a few. The transplant of kidney is required for diseases that are not curable. However, due to nuclear families, numbers of legal donors are plummeting, and patients struggle to find a suitable donor outside the family.

“Swipe kidney transplant in India is permissible by a person who is related to the patient. However, in this case, the potential donors were not related to the respective recipients which posed a challenge in terms of getting permissions for the process – we had to take permissions from no objection certificate from state government. An expert team of two surgeons, two nephrologists, 4 Anaesthetics along with support staff chose to perform this process laparoscopically and it took us 6 hours to perform the surgery that was done at the same time on all 4 of them. Dr Ajay Singh, Nephrologist in a private hospital who was treating Mr Kanaram. When Dr Ajay Singh find that Kanaram’s wife can’t donate her kidney to his husband because of the different blood groups, he shared the case with other Doctors including me, fortunately we have second family’s details in our records which matched the donor’s & recipient’s medical needs,” said Dr Sandeep Gupta, Additional Director- Urology, Andrology & Kidney Transplant Surgery, Fortis Escorts Hospital, Jaipur.
