          During pregnancy, the mother needs to share nutrients and oxygen for the baby, especially first 3 months, many, mom, morning sickness, the additional nutrients are not enough leads to skinny kick body weakness, fatigue and poor sleep. In the last months of pregnancy, the uterus gradually expands, displaces and presses up the diaphragm, causing movement of the diaphragm reduce should pregnant women have to breathe deep to breathe more to get more oxygen. This makes pregnant feel uncomfortable and affect the quality of sleep.

            Ventricular septal defect – congenital heart defects common in children

            Article get expert advice by Phd, dr. Nguyen Luong Tan – Head of department of cardiology, Heart center, hospital, international Vinmec Central Park

            Ventricular septal occupy 15 – 20% of the total number of cases of congenital heart disease. Disease ventricular septal influence many to health and the comprehensive development of the child with many dangerous complications such as growth retardation, heart failure, stasis blood, lung infections, pulmonary hypertension… and can be fatal if not treated promptly.

            1. Disease ventricular septal defect what is it?

            Disease ventricular septal or there abbreviated name in English is VSD, is a form of congenital heart disease the most popular today.

            In the human body, the two ventricles are the main two compartments in the lower part of the heart and they are separated by the septum. In which the left side of the heart will usually pump blood with great pressure and contains more oxygen (than the right) off the aorta to feed the entire body. Ventricular septal defect is exist 1 or more holes is located on the septum between the two ventricles this. If the hole is large it can cause heart failure, lung injury do not recover and lead to death.

            2. Ventricular septal symptoms like?

            The symptoms of ventricular septal your baby often appear after a few days, a few weeks after birth. With a newborn there is ventricular septal defect small hole will have no symptoms. Young with a vent large, long days may cause purplish lips and nails from lack of oxygen, fingers, legs, live drumstick of black blood from the right ventricle goes through the vents mixed with red blood side interior left (Eisenmenger syndrome).

            The symptoms of ventricular septal defect in children, including:

            • Skin, lips and nails are always in a state of cyanosis due to lack of oxygen.
            • Poor diet, not gain weight.
            • Baby breathing, fast breathing or shortness of breath.
            • Baby is always in a state of fatigue, weakness.
            • Baby having difficulty breathing when eating or when crying.
            • Feet or tummy of the baby is swelling.
            • Heart palpitations or irregular heartbeat.

            3. Causes and complications of ventricular septal defect in children

            Ventricular septal defect in children often has no obvious cause, possibly due to irregularities in the process of developing heart of the baby in the fetus. During pregnancy the mother is infected with the Rubella virus, device, diabetes, drugs, alcohol, or other stimulants be considered as the cause of diseases congenital heart defects. The complications of ventricular septal defect in children include:

            ● With ventricular septal defect small hole at least when there are complications, children still living and normal development.

            • Ventricular septal big hole has many dangerous complications such as:

              • Malnutrition: malnutrition is often accompanied by heart failure, recurrent infections, poor diet.
              • Pneumonia: lung infection recurrences, with clinical manifestations such as fever, cough, shortness of breath, rapid breathing, pull intercostal muscles, draw concave tits, young bored eating.
              • Heart failure congest: Due to the increase in blood flow through the heart to the lungs that the heart has to work more than usual. Long day heart dilatation, stasis of blood and can’t pump blood efficiently, does not meet the needs blood for the parts of the body. The symptoms of heart failure due to ventricular septal defect in infants, such as shortness of breath or sweating when feeding or exertion, fast breathing, pull, breathe, scream, even when resting.
              • Pulmonary hypertension heavy with Eisenmenger syndrome
              • Other complications such as arrhythmias, obstruction of cerebral vessels or brain abscess.

            4. Methods of treatment of ventricular septal

            The progression of the ventricular septal very diverse. Therefore, the treatment will need to be based on the factors such as hemodynamics, age, lesion anatomy, pulmonary artery pressure response of patients with treatment.

            Currently, there are 2 methods of treatment of ventricular septal privacy include: open heart surgery and intervention, close the ventricular septal defect through the skin.

            Currently, the FDA (agency management food and drug the United States) only allows performing interventions close the ventricular septal defect through the skin on the patient through small parts, in a ridge or a complication of myocardial infarction.

            Specify close the vent with open-heart surgery depending on the location, size, hole information, the patient does not respond to medical therapy, or have diseases of the heart congenital other comes.

            The case after surgery, has not surgery or without surgery need complications of infective endocarditis.

            Treatment of ventricular septal likely completely cured of the disease if it is detected early and treatment was correct in the medical facility prestigious. Hospital international Vinmec have center heart circuits with specialist pediatric cardiology assume the function of examination, ultrasonography, diagnosis, monitoring, treatment, and rehabilitation cardiovascular for pediatric patients.

            The faculty has successfully conducted many heart surgeries, including in children under 5 kg, and the newborns suffering from heart defects in which there is disease ventricular septal. Cardiology children’s hospital Vinmec has a team of specialists, rich experience, great reputation in medical therapy, surgery, interventional cardiology by applying many techniques currently most advanced in the diagnosis and treatment of pathologies of the cardiovascular.

            The faculty are linked a comprehensive cooperation with the cardiovascular Institute of the Bach Mai hospital, University Paris Decartes’s hospital Georges Pompidou (France), University of Pennsylvania (Usa)…

              Why fungus Aflatoxin in food mold to cause cancer?

              Aflatoxin usually are in the food mold is a toxic fungi that is produced naturally by some species of Aspergillus (a type of mold). In addition to causing acute poisoning (doses of about 10mg can be deadly), the mold Aflatoxin and is considered the cause of cirrhosis and liver cancer.

              1. Mushrooms Aflatoxin what is?

              According to research materials of the Bureau of food and drug (FDA) of the United States, mold Aflatoxin operation is very durable with heat. The peanut moldy is roasted with very high temperature will make the mold spores be destroyed, but their toxins still not completely destroyed. Therefore, when moldy it should be discarded, whether processed at high temperature, then eat to still be dangerous.

              Toxins Aflatoxin is known to be one of the pathogens of liver cancer most powerful when the diseases absorption of Aflatoxins through the mouth will cause the body contains a total amount of 2.5 mg of Aflatoxin for a period of 90 days and can lead to liver cancer after more than 1 year.

              2. Why fungus Aflatoxin in food mold to cause cancer?

              Use food container mold Aflatoxins to cause cancer, however many families still do not understand is this problem with simple thinking is just rub and dry for most mushrooms are all toxic and can be used so many who “procession of the disease to the body”.

              In fact, mold Aflatoxins not only toxic because of survive in dry food mold, but also in the persistent of it. Aflatoxin was born, in the form of chemical, so it will not be lost when processed at a temperature of hot or boiling temperatures of 1000 degrees C. scientific Research has shown that, want to remove a part of toxins Aflatoxins are required to a temperature higher than the boiling temperature (temperature roasting, drying from 1500 degrees C to more than 2000 degrees C).

              The toxins Aflatoxin to penetrate into the human body will be the liver metabolized to form the intermediate epoxide activation or hydrolysis becomes M1 less toxic. There are at least 13 types of Aflatoxin different in nature, in which Aflatoxin B1 is the shape unique. Aflatoxin G1 and G2 produced by Aspergillus parasiticus. Aflatoxin B1 is produced by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus. Aflatoxins M1, M2, is produced and detected in the milk of cows when they eat right foods that contain mold aflatoxin.

              Any kind of animal which can be toxic aflatoxin. Adult then there is resistance, better should be its resistance to better, also for children when ingested food contain mold aflatoxin will develop and slow growth.

              Aflatoxin when absorbed into the body will attack the main organ is the liver, so it causes liver disease, cancer is mostly. People infected with the toxin aflatoxin , perennial high-risk cancer of the liver and gallbladder cancer.

              3. Concentrations of Aflatoxin as what is safe?

              According to the regulations of the United states, the function of mold Aflatoxin in food animal husbandry and food are FDA recommended safe include:

              • For animals reared for milk or for other purposes, the nuts used for pet, wags and feed (except the flour from cotton seed and corn): 20 (ppb).
              • For nuts used for breeding animals, corn or poultry have grown: 100 (ppb).
              • With respect to the type of grain used for pig meat from 100 pounds upwards and corn: 200 (ppb).
              • For cottonseed meal intended for beef, pork and poultry, with respect to the type of grain used for cattle the final stages and corn: 300 (ppb).

              According to regulation of Vietnam: Vietnam Ministry of health health regulations the content of Aflatoxins maximum limits (ML):

              • Type B1 in the food: 5 ML (micrograms/kg).
              • Type G1, G2, B1, B2 in food: 15ML (µg/kg).
              • Type M1 in milk: 0.5 ML (micrograms/kg).

              4. How to detect people infected with Aflatoxin

              Along with the development of medicine, then there are currently 2 ways that can help testers detect the level of infection toxins aflatoxin in humans:

              • The method of calculating the amount of complex AFB1-guanine in the urine.
              • The method of calculating the amount of complex AFB1-albumin contained in the serum.

              To the present time, there is no drug which can treat specific toxins aflatoxin. However, the absolute stay away from the foods that contain mold aflatoxin and building diet with full of green vegetables can help reduce cancer risk.

                Stroke – dangerous complications of vascular malformations brain

                Those who suffer from frequent headaches, signs of dizziness, need to go check because there may be vascular malformations of the brain – disease causing stroke very fast.

                1. Disease, vascular malformations, brain

                Malformations of cerebral vessels is a congenital disease, develop from the fourth week to the eighth week of pregnancy, causing the arteries more direct connection with vein through the capillary network intermediary, so the majority of vascular malformations brain can survive in the brain that less what are the symptoms.

                2. Dangerous complications of vascular malformations brain

                Malformations of cerebral vessels developed over time, exist without symptoms for many years and is discovered primarily in the age of 45 back down in 3 situations: bleeding brain (50-60%); headache, epilepsy (40-45%) or incidentally discovered (5-10%). Some patients are detected quite late (60-70 years old).

                Estimate the proportion of people suffering from malformations of cerebral vessels is 18 in 100,000 people.

                Complications vascular malformations of brain includes:

                • When not broken: Patients with manifest chronic headache, medical therapy do not help, are these seizures type epilepsy. The case size lesions deformity may cause pressure on the brain and cerebral ischemia, cause polio and hand, foot, and… However, the disease may have no symptoms, only to be discovered accidentally when tomography, magnetic resonance or angiography of the brain.
                • When broken: This is complications the most severe of the disease, it will cause stroke, brain bleeding brain, often bleeding in the brain tissue, can bleed intraventricular or a combination of, very rarely subarachnoid bleeding. Symptoms of sudden, acute with the degree of severity varies with the manifestations such as severe headache, vomiting, nausea, increased blood pressure, consciousness may be normal, or lethargy, even coma, palsy hemiparesis, difficult to speak or not to speak is…

                About 2/3 of cases of this disease will suffer a stroke before the age of 40. Each year, approximately 4 out of 100 people who have vascular malformations brain will hemorrhage. When hemorrhage risk 15-20% risk of death or stroke, 30% have mental illness, 10% mortality.

                3. What to do when the patient suffered a stroke and discovered broken blood vessel malformations, brain?

                Each type of stroke the brain is diagnosed and treated in a different way. Patients whose expression is brain stroke should be taken immediately to hospitals on the nearest to be examined, handled the emergency, respiratory disorders, cardiovascular and CT brain emergency.

                If there is bleeding in the brain, the doctor will determine the type of bleeding the brain and predict causes in order to handle properly and timely. If the bleeding parenchyma of the brain due to rupture of small vessels on patients with hypertension, stucco, fiber arteries it would not have to take blood vessels the brain.

                Conversely, if the thought of bleeding due to diseases of the blood vessels of the brain, then the need to move patients on as soon as possible to take brain vessels (DSA) and interventional emergency treatment.

                4. Treatments for vascular malformations, brain

                The doctor will give the best treatment for you and this will be determined by the size of the malformation and position of it. There are 3 methods of treatment include:

                Obstruction intravascular (Endovascular embolization)

                In this technique, the doctor will insert a long thin tube into the leg artery and threaded through the blood vessels to the brain under the instruction of radiology images. The catheter is placed in one of the arteries nourishing to the blood vessels deformed and injection fluid embolism, such as small particles, substances like glue, microcoils or other materials, to block arteries and reduce blood flow in vascular malformations. Obstruction intravascular less invasive than traditional surgery. It can be done alone, but usually used before other treatments another surgery to make the procedure safer by reducing the size of the vascular malformations, or reduce the likelihood of bleeding.

                The casual form larger and complex structures is usually combination therapy methods. With these cases, doctors often button circuit in advance to reduce the size deformity, then surgery open surgery or radiation.

                Depending on the condition and vulnerability of each patient, method and treatment plan will be chosen the most appropriate way.

                Radiation treatment

                This way is also known as surgery, radiation or radiosurgery. An X-ray beam, a narrow focus on defects stars for high-dose targeting in arteriovenous malformation of the brain and the rest of the brain is much lower doses. This radiation makes malformation of brain vessels, brain, and closed at intervals of 2-3 years in 80% of patients. The risk of complications of this procedure low. Until vascular malformations brain is completely closed, then the risk of bleeding still.


                This is the oldest method to treatment of vascular malformations of the brain. Defects is cut off in the surgery room by anesthesia. Opening the skull, clamping and cutting the blood vessels malformations. Often applied when the malformation rupture caused intracranial hematoma, or mass deformed to cause signs of neurological. The risks of surgery is usually high with respect to malformations of cerebral vessels located in the deep in the brain have important functions.

                Besides, there is another option is to do nothing and just monitor the disease. Your doctor may recommend follow-up if they feel the treatment is not safe or detect the disease when you are older.

                Neurologist – Medical doctor and Internal medicine – hospital international Vinmec Da Nang is the only treatment of vascular malformations of the brain with many outstanding advantages, such as: There are many various medical specialties, our team of experienced doctors about the field of intensive systems, modern equipment.
