In-patient Procedures

Procedures such as Cardiac Catheterization, Angioplasty and Stenting, Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR), Optical coherence tomography (OCT)/Intra vascular ultrasound (IVUS) and other procedures can be performed.

Cardiac Catheterization

A cardiac catheterization, also known as a coronary angiography or cardiac cath, is an invasive imaging technique that enables a healthcare provider to assess the heart problem by inserting a catheter guiding it all the way from arm or groin to the coronary artery,  thereby injecting contrast to assess percentage of blocks in them.

Angioplasty and Stenting

Angioplasty involves inflating a balloon in a narrowed artery to open up a blocked coronary artery, while stenting involves placing a mesh-like tube (stent) to keep open the artery, facilitating blood flow, e.g. Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA).

Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR)

This is an invasive test to assess the physiological importance of intermediate stenosis ( 50 to 70%). Uses pressure difference across the stenosis to assess its importance is more scientific way of dealing with borderline stenotic lesions.

Optical coherence tomography (OCT)/Intra vascular ultrasound (IVUS)

These are the imaging techniques help us to visualize the vessel from inside with the help of a camera mounted over the wire. This helps us to see the size of the vessel, composition of plaque, extent of calcification inside the vessel which help in planning for stenting procedure. Post stent placement, it shows opposition of stent there by we can do postdilatation which helps us to reduce restenosis rates.

Rotablation/ Intravascular Lithotripsy (IVL)

These are the calcium debulking techniques that we use in patients with calcified lesions. These techniques help to break calcium, increase size of lumen, allow stent expansion that will reduce stent thrombosis and stent restenosis rates. 

Pacemaker Implantation

The process of implanting a small, battery-powered gadget called a pacemaker into your chest is known as pacemaker implantation. Regular electrical impulses are sent by the pacemaker to help maintain a regular heartbeat. 

Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator (ICD) Implantation

An ICD is a small device that monitors the heart's rhythm through wires connected to the heart. It produces an electric shock to maintain a regular heartbeat if it detects an abnormal rhythm. It's battery-powered and reduces the risk of sudden cardiac death. 

Cardiac Ablation

During a cardiac ablation, a catheter is guided to the heart to destroy small areas of tissue responsible for abnormal heart rhythms.

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR): It is an alternative to open-heart surgery for replacing a narrowed aortic valve, known as aortic valve stenosis. Done through the groin under conscious sedation, and the patient is made to walk within 6 hrs of the procedure. TAVR is a boon for patients with elderly, frail, symptomatic severe Aortic stenosis patients.

Peripheral Vascular Disease

Balloon angioplasty and stenting for claudication pain and diabetic foot, CAROTID ARTERY AND RENAL ARTERY STENING.

Venous Thromboembolism

Endo Vascular interventions for Deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism like Mechanical thrombectomy using Penumbra, catheter directed thrombolysis and IVC filter insertion will be done through the groin as and when in indicated patients.
