Females have two ovaries, both of which have the size and shape of an almond and are placed on either side of the uterus. During the childbearing years, ova (eggs) develop and mature in the female ovaries and are released in a monthly cycle.Many females have ovarian cysts at some point. Most ovarian cysts present little or no discomfort and are harmless. The majority disappears without treatment within a few months. However, ovarian cysts, especially those that have ruptured, can cause serious symptoms. Uterine Myoma Uterine myomas or fibroids are noncancerous developments of the uterus that frequently show up during childbearing years. Likewise called leiomyomas or myomas, uterine fibroids aren't related to an expanded danger of uterine malignant growth and never form the disease. Fibroids range in size from tiny seedlings, imperceptible to the natural eye, to massive masses that can distort and extend the uterus. Anyone can have a single or multiple fibroid.In outrageous cases, various fibroids can extend the uterus so much that it arrives at the rib cage and can add weight. Coronary Artery Disease The coronary arteries are the blood vessels that carry blood to your heart. Coronary artery disease is the narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries. This condition is usually caused by atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is the build-up of cholesterol and fatty deposits, which form plaques inside the arteries. These plaques can clog the arteries or damage the arteries, which limits or stops blood flow to the heart muscle. If the heart does not get enough blood, it cannot get the oxygen and nutrients it needs to work properly. This can cause chest pain (angina) or a heart attack. Coronary Angiogram A coronary angiogram is a methodology that utilizes X-ray imaging to see your heart's veins. The test is, for the most part, done to check whether there's a limitation in blood flow going to the heart. Coronary angiograms are important for an overall gathering of systems known as heart (cardiovascular) catheterizations. Cardiovascular catheterization methods can both analyze and treat heart and vein conditions. A coronary angiogram, which can help analyze heart conditions, is the most well-known kind of cardiovascular catheterization methodology. During a coronary angiogram, a sort of color that is obvious by an X-ray machine is infused into the veins of your heart. The X-ray machine quickly takes a progression of pictures (angiograms), offering a glimpse at your veins. Thyroid cancer (robotic thyroid surgery) Robotic thyroidectomy by transaxillary approach (Rodents) is viewed as an attainable and safe elective technique in the patients with the kind of illness or thyroid cancer that is okay, encouraging thyroidectomy as for regular endoscopic methodology and offering improved restorative outcomes. The Korea University Anam Hospital’s technical advantages over its previous generations include overhead docking, more minimal robotic arms, an expanded scope of movement, and the capacity for the camera to be docked in any arm. This development upholds dismemberment in more modest spaces with less arm impedance and an improved view.
