A LIB reader asks a medical question

From a LIB reader
I did a biopsy on venous malformation,and my result indicates that if I'm going to remove the whole malformation through surgery there is every tendency that the malformation will be back. Besides the scar on the biopsy, I did was really bad. I cant imagine how the scar will look if carried out on the main region. So I read about veineous malformation treatment and I found that Multiple sclerotherapeutic sessions, Venous embolization, Endovenous laser therapy can shrink up the swollen vien without surgery being carried out. According to general hospital they said I can only get treatment outside the country and since I have no money going abroad for this treatment, I want to know if there are any private hospitals that are specialized in using this treatment in Nigeria. Can I please have answers?

Where is the main region? Enlighten me more then I can advice

Ijanyi Mitch said...

What part of ur bodyis the venous malformation? That will help me help u

Ijanyi Mitch said...

Is it a superficial or deep vein , is it within or around a vital organ .. What part of the body? This write up doesn't give that info. It all depends on what part which is the key to answering that question as to if it can be done here in Nigeria or not

There's a chance of it not coming back if u remove it thru surgery...VMs can also be cured thru Sclerotherapy...doing it abroad would've been the best if u had the money....wish u all d best though...

There should be...if you do your findings well you'll get aa good private hospital but you have to hold a handful of money.

Fatima Shettima said...

Hey lassie. Tbh. What u will spend on such treatment in private nigerian hospital is equivalent to the money u will spend to go abroad. Any doctors here to prove me wrong

Tayar Rabboni said...

Hmm i don't knowpersonally... i think the previous goverment said they ve done many things in the health sector so let the come out and help direct u on where those Standard Hospitals r... Wish u well bro.

Hey LIBer, I don't know the quality of the place u went to but biopsy for a venous malformation should not be done. The first step is a Doppler ultrasound and if the malformation was not adequately defined by the Doppler due to its complicated nature, then they do magnetic resonance angiography. But biopsy is not an option in fact it is dangerous. They only biopsy tumors to know the pathological makeup. Sorry I can't help with the laser therapy in nigeria.

I think only people with a medical background can help out. But anyway I had a surgery to remove an arteriovenous malformation at Luth and am still alive. Though I spent a lot of money.you can ask your doctor from the private hospital you use to give you a referral.

I know of this Indian Hospital in Kuje, Abuja and I know a couple of people that have gone there for treatment instead of travelling out of the country www.primushospitalnigeria.com you can confirm

Never knew biopsies were done on hemangiomas hmmmmm this is new to my ears.
Y wasn't an MRI done or is urs a malignant entity cos generally hemangiomas are known to be benign.

Btw...sclerotherapy and ablation are ur best bet without surgery.
As for the procedure not being done in nigeria is almost 98% true. If i were you though I'd ask around most of these tertiary hospitals,u just might be lucky.
As for privates hospital,if eventually u get to see one that does,trust me to tell u ud pay thru ur teeth. The likes of eko hospital or dt big hospital in abuja*4gotten it's name* may be able to carry out such procedure.

Or better still depending on ur location,go to any
tertiary hospital visit their hematological/internal medicine dept and be sure to see a consultant whom might likely have an idea as to where it's done in nigeria,pointing u to the right direction

Very easy. Look for a venous veterinary to extricate the malformation in copious biospical amount. Then appyl the medicaments and the apothecaries on the affected region with intermittent blasts of lazer to subcutaneous and endovenous layers. An indigenous practitioner shld b easy to subjugate and ameliorate the offending region with multiple sclerotherapeutic sessions though i must advise against venous embolisation because of ebola.

I doubt it if you can get such treatment in Nigeria, but I think you'd still have to visit a hospital for referral to centres outside this country.

igbokwe clara said...

Lolz dis one not 4 me oooo

Rumestikal said...

No hospital in Nigeria does that. You have to travel outside to get that kind of treatment but depending on the site,parliatives include wearing of tight stockings & hoses, elevation of the limb, use of certain drugs like vinegar,ethanolamine and some other drugs not found in this country...so like I said depending on the site and whether it's from birth or not. So more info is needed here. You can tweet for more @Renegbuya
