These complex Angioplasties procedures are assisted by imaging guidance such as IVUS, OCT and 3D TEE, CT Imaging during structural heart procedures. 

Our state-of-the-art biplane cath labs is well-equipped with the latest equipment and is supported by dedicated staff members who are available round-the-clock for providing comprehensive cardiac care.

What is interventional cardiology

The section of interventional cardiology offers cutting-edge diagnostic tests and nonsurgical interventional treatments for patients with cases of cardiovascular problems not restricted with a limit of available surgical interventions. 

What are the conditions we treat under interventional cardiology

Our team of experts at interventional cardiology offers numerous treatment options for heart and vascular conditions:

  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
    • Heart attack
    • Cardiogenic shock
    • Obstructed coronary artery disease
    • Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD)
  • Valvular heart disease
    • Aortic stenosis
    • Mitral valve stenosis and regurgitation
    • Prosthetic valve failure

What are the diagnostic services we provide under Interventional Cardiology Unit

We offer a detailed diagnostic assessment for all types of cardiovascular problems before selecting an interventional approach for cardiology. Our faculties for Interventional Cardiology have high-tech equipment and imaging techniques such as:

  • Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) 
  • Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) 
  • 3D Transoesophageal Echocardiography (TEE)
  • Computed Tomography (CT) Imaging

The IVUS and OCT are important for evaluating the underlying cause of the heart problem when complex angioplasties have to be performed. The patient is engaged with 3D TEE to assess their eligibility to undergo a structural heart procedure.

What are the treatment procedures we provide under Interventional Cardiology Unit

Our surgeons perform a variety of minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat cardiovascular disease, such as: 

  • Rotablation
  • FFR guided PCI

Endovascular procedures 

  • Aortoiliac Angioplasty
  • Aortic Aneurysm
  • Dissection Management
  • Carotid Stenting
  • Birth Defects

Are There Any Complications Involved

Some of the major risk factors associated with Interventional Cardiology procedures are:

  • An artery collapsing or closing again
  • Bleeding or damage to the blood vessel 
  • Restenosis (Scar tissue can grow within a stent)
  • Stent thrombosis (blood clots can form inside the stent) 
  • Infection at the site of incision
  • Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat)
  • Damage to other parts of the heart
