Cardiology Treatments and Procedures
The Cardiology Department is committed to providing multidisciplinary, integrated and patient centric treatments. Our comprehensive cardiovascular as well as thoracic treatments and procedures produce results, which exceed national quality benchmarks. Our treatments are backed by latest technological advancements and innovative trials. Our procedures are broadly divided into two categories:
Non-Invasive Cardiac Procedures
Echocardiography and 3D Echocardiography
It is an echo test or heart ultrasound test that uses sound waves to create moving pictures of your heart, including absolute heart chamber volumes and functions.
Trans-oesophageal echocardiography uses sound waves to create moving pictures of heart and its blood vessels.
Dobutamine stress ECHO
A test procedure used to determine the heart’s function and structures under stress.
It is a procedure to improve echocardiographic resolution and providing real-time evaluation of intracardiac blood flow.
A Holter is a portable electrocardiography device used for cardiac monitoring (tracking heart’s rhythms) for 24 to 48 hours..
Invasive Cardiac Procedures
It is a test conducted to evaluate the functioning of the blood vessels to detect blockages and flow abnormalities.
It is a minimally invasive technique used to restore blood flow through the artery.
Percutaneous Aortic, Mitral, Pulmonary and Tricuspid Valvotomies
It is a procedure that involves the replacement of Aortic valve, Mitral valve, Pulmonary valve and Tricuspid valve due to high surgical risk.
Renal Angioplasty and Carotid Angioplasty
Renal angioplasty is a method to treat renal artery stenosis. Carotid Angioplasty is a method that opens the blocked arteries to restore blood flow to the brain.
Peripheral Angioplasty including Subintimal Angioplasty
Peripheral angioplasty is a minimally invasive procedure used to re-open blood vessels to allow oxygen-rich blood to pass through smoothly.
A procedure to treat athero-occlusive disease of the superficial femoral artery.
IVC filter and Pulmonary Embolectomy
Inferior vena cava is a type of vascular filter to help prevent pulmonary embolism. A Pulmonary Embolectomy is a surgical method that involves removal of pulmonary embolism.
Septal Ablation for HOCM
It is a non-surgical procedure to treat hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
Device closure of congenital cardiac defects
The closure devices are used to close a birth defect or an opening between the right and left sides of the heart.
Radiofrequency Ablation for supraventricular and ventricular tachyarrhythmia
It is a procedure used to treat ventricular tachycardia.
3D Electrical Cardiac Mapping
A procedure that is used to diagnose the improper beating of the heart or arrythmia.
A procedure in which a small electronic device is implanted in the chest to help regulate slow electrical problems with the heart.
ICDs and Combo device implantation
ICDs are implantable cardioverter defibrillator is a device used to track heart rate. A combo device is used to improve the pumping capacity of the heart and prevent sudden death in patients with heart failure.
It is a procedure used to implant a device in the chest to make the heart chambers contract, as a treatment option for heart failure.
It is an Intravascular ultrasound or intravascular echocardiography procedure which uses high-frequency sound to show a detailed visualization of the artery wall.
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI)
A procedure where the aortic valve replacement is done in the CATH Lab.
