Egg Freezing and how it is done?

Egg Freezing and how it is done?

Egg freezing is a process in which women’s eggs are harvested from the ovaries, frozen and stored either fertilized or unfertilized for future use.



It starts with hormone medication and injection over for 8 to 12 days that will stimulate the ovaries to produce eggs.

Right candidate – women who have not yet decided to marry goals to achieve before their motherhood and those with cancer as Chemo / Radiation treatment may damage the ovaries. 20 to 35 is an ideal age for those who choose to freeze eggs for social reason there is no official cut off as the technology of vitrification is relatively new.

Storage of eggs

After retrieval of eggs they are stored in individual labeled cans. Eggs (Oocytes) are stored in liquid Nitrogen in special tanks called Cryotanks with a temperature of -196 degree. Oocytes are stored in special media and the water is removed and it is stored in liquid nitrogen. In this the sperm, embryos, eggs also can be frozen in this.

Patient has to renew the term every year it can be stored for at least 45 years but according to Indian Govt.  rule freezing can be done only for 10 years.

Virtual Histology

Virtual Histology

is a domain of Intravascular ultrasound(IVUS) wherein we can assess the morphology of the intravascular lesion and then decide the course of balloon dilation and stent sizing and implantation. It can also help to measure quantitatively the extent of lesion calcification to decide the need for rota ablation and cutting balloon and can pick up fibrosis in the lesion which can be the reason for lesion recoil and subsequent stent restenosis and thrombosis with its added long term consequences.
With the advent of our IVUS machine, we can guarantee the most appropriate and state-of-the-art facility and technology to our patients with the best possible angioplasty results.

Intravascular ultrasound(IVUS) Philips

We are overwhelmed to announce that we have now ushered a new era of Imaging guided interventional cardiology in the South Gujarat region.
We did our first several coronary interventional procedures guided by intravascular ultrasound(IVUS) in Valsad in the last 3 months. With the advent of our new easy to use and plug and play catheter ( requiring low preparation and time to use)we can offer the facility of IVUS to almost every complex angioplasty patient (even to scheme beneficiaries)which will enable us to deliver much better and long-lasting outcomes which will reduce complications and need of repeat revascularization in our patients.

Really this is a learning experience for us. It makes us understand and actually see to believe the very well-known lacunae of conventional angiography and angioplasty wherein our judgment can be fallacious so many times and the use of imaging may help to bail us out in tough times.

Cardialogy vapi- Coronary artery winking case

Coronary artery winking case

Coronary artery winking sign' is a recently described angiographic sign of impending cardiac rupture..
Sometimes in post-infarction elderly patients when we do an angiographic shoot and winking sign is seen it is an indicator of myocardial rupture which is usually a fatal complication of myocardial infarction seen in 1-2 percent of the cases.

Coronary artery winking sign' is a recently described angiographic sign of impending cardiac rupture..
Sometimes in post-infarction elderly patients when we do an angiographic shoot and winking sign is seen it is an indicator of myocardial rupture which is usually a fatal complication of myocardial infarction seen in 1-2 percent of the cases.

Winking sign' is only incidentally detected when we happen to do an angiography in a post infarction patient who is likely to have a cardiac rupture in the next few minutes.

The sign is characterized by appearing and disappearing coronary artery during various phases of the cardiac cycle..

Given its rare occurrence, it's very difficult to be picked up on angio as most patients have impending cardiac rupture and eventually die in the next few minutes as the condition is mostly untreatable. Some cases of winking sign with ventricular septal rupture can be picked up as it gives more time for surgical repair as compared to free wall rupture.

Disappearing segment of LAD in systole-afterVisible segment of LAD in diastole-before

In our case who was an elderly patient with inferior wall myocardial infarction who had sudden cardiac death due to cardiac rupture immediately after the angiography procedure before we could even think of an angioplasty. Winking sign is usually seen in the Artery involved in infarction because the site of cardiac rupture is usually close to the site of infarction but in this case, it was unusual that winking sign was seen in LAD while the patient was having an infarction if right coronary artery.

I too have seen this sign in angiography for the first time although it has been discussed in our cardiologists Whatsapp forum on a few occasions.
