Coronary angiogram in India

Coronary angiogram/cardiac catheterization: A coronary angiogram, also known as cardiac Cath or cardiac catheterisation, is a minimally invasive diagnostic procedure that is widely used for investigating heart disease, a common medical problem.


Coronary angioplasty in India

A coronary angioplasty is a widely performed procedure that is used to treat heart problems caused by blocked or narrowed coronary arteries (blood vessels that supply blood to the heart muscle). The minimally invasive procedure, which requires only one small incision, normally takes between one to two hours and aims to remove blockages in the coronary arteries.


Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) surgery in India

Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) surgery, commonly referred to as Bypass Surgery, is a procedure for the treatment of blocked coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart muscles. The Coronary Artery Bypass Graft Surgery is performed by a cardiac surgeon with the objective of bypassing a block in one or more of the arteries leading to the heart muscles. The portion of the affected artery which contains the block is cut away or bypassed.


Mitral Valve Repair / Replacement in India

The mitral valve regulates the flow of oxygen-rich blood from the left atrium (upper chamber) of the heart to the left ventricle (lower chamber) of the heart. It is from the left ventricle that blood is pumped out through the aorta to the body. Treatment is normally suggested if malfunction of the mitral valve is causing breathlessness or the heart muscles to weaken.

Mitral valve diseases were treated in the initial days by the replacement of the mitral valve in India. However, mitral valve repair in India is clearly the preferred option over valve replacement for a number of reasons.


Heart Pacemaker Implantation / Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy
CRT ) in India

A pacemaker is an electrical device that is used to regulate and normalise the rhythm at which the heart works. The rate at which the heart works and the rhythm at which it works are triggered by electrical impulses generated from within the heart. Abnormalities in these electrical impulses result in arrhythmia (where the heart rhythms are too slow, too fast or irregular), which can be corrected by the implantation of a pacemaker.


Ablation Therapy in India for Arrhythmias

Arrhythmia is a heart condition in which there is a lack of rhythm in the pumping action of the heart, which is caused by faulty impulses in the electrical system that drives the heart. Heart hospitals in India offer catheter ablation therapy in which a small flexible tube called the catheter is threaded into the affected portion of the heart. Bursts of energy are delivered to the affected areas which block the faulty electrical pathways, and resolve the arrhythmia. Ablation therapy in India is a minor, minimally invasive procedure that requires just a one-day stay in a hospital.

Transmyocardial Laser Revascularization (TMR) in India

This procedure is considered as a treatment option for patients who need improved blood circulation to some sections of the heart, but are not fit enough to undergo angioplasty or heart bypass surgery. Transmyocardial laser revascularization, which is offered at leading cardiac centres in India, uses a carbon dioxide laser to create between 20-40 small pathways in the heart muscle, through which blood circulation to heart muscle is enhanced. Studies indicate that this procedure may facilitate the generation of new blood vessels, which also increases the vascularisation of the treated area.

Rotational and Directional Atherectomy in India

Atherectomy is a standard procedure offered at several cardiac hospitals in India. This procedure involves the use of a catheter with a sharp cutting edge to remove plaque deposits from within artery valves. The objective of this procedure, which is performed with great success by interventional cardiologists in India, is to unblock the artery and allow free flow of blood. The atherectomy procedure is most often used when the artery block is in an area where stenting is not feasible.

Embolectomy / Thrombectomy in India

An embolectomy is an emergency medical procedure in which an embolus, which is blocking blood circulation, is removed. The embolus causing the blockages is quite often a blood clot, known as thrombus, in which case the procedure is referred to as a thrombectomy. This procedure is considered only in medical emergencies and is widely performed at heart hospitals as well as multi-faculty hospitals in India

Treatment in India of Co Arctation of Aorta

Coarctation of the aorta is a common congenital heart defect. Hospitals in India offer both surgery and angioplasty procedure for the treatment of this heart disease, in which a section of the aorta, the main blood vessel carrying oxygenated blood out of the heart to the body, is narrowed at one or more points. Depending on the assessment, your cardiac specialist in India may advise you bypass surgery in which the narrowed section of the aorta is bypassed, or a balloon angioplasty/stenting procedure for which an interventional cardiologist is involved. Both treatment options for treatment of Co Arctation of Aorta are offered at our cardiac hospitals in India.

EECP in India

Enhanced External Counterpulsation therapy (EECP) is a non-invasive procedure that is offered at several cardiac hospitals in India to patients with angina, heart failure or cardiomyopathy. This procedure which aims to increase blood flow to heart muscle is provided on outpatient basis at cardiac hospitals in India. Patients normally require 35 sittings spread over approximately 6 weeks. The procedure involves applying air pressure at three points between the upper thigh and the foot in order to ' force' better blood circulation to the heart region.

Defibrillator (Implantable Cardiac Defibrillator)

This device is a small electronic unit which is implanted in the chest. The ICD monitors the heart rhythm, senses fast heart rhythm and averts death due to cardiac arrest. The ICD is capable of monitoring the heart rhythm and will deliver programmed electrical 'shocks' to heart muscle to bring the rhythm back to normal range.
