Heart Disease

An Epidemic Today

  • Heart disease has emerged as the number one killer among Indians – according to recent study by RGI (Registrar General of India) and ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research).
  • India with > 1.2 billion people, is estimated to account for 60% of heart disease worldwide. 50% of heart attacks happen under 50 years of age and 25% under the age of 40 years.
  • With such data we need to fight this epidemic in India and help develop a “Heal Thy Community” awareness of prevention

Angiogram & Angioplasty Angiogram & Angioplasty The gradual build up of fat within the blood vessel of the heart causes narrowing and when it becomes significantly narrowed it obstructs adequate blood flow demanded by the heart's muscle leading to demand and supply disparity.
Then a balloon, calculated according to the size of the blood vessel, is inserted and inflated at the site of blockage, thus making passage for deployment of stent. Stent is a metal mesh which is mounted on a balloon and taken to the site of blockage where a passage was made with a previous balloon.
The balloon on which the stent is loaded is inflated thus deploying the stent to keep the blocked area open. The balloon is removed.
Primary Angioplasty Angiogram & Angioplasty Primary angioplasty is an angioplasty done as a life-saving emergency procedure in a patient with an on-going heart attack.
Heart attacks occur due to sudden total occlusion of a pre-existing partial block, thereby completely cutting off the blood supply to a portion of a heart muscle. These 100 per cent blockages need to be removed within 3-6 hours from the onset of heart attack; else the muscle of the heart gets damaged permanently. It has been proved that Angioplasty at this stage prevents permanent heart muscle damage and helps reduce hospital stay so that the patients can be discharged within 3-4 days.
Peripheral Angioplasty
Renal Artery Stenting Angiogram & Angioplasty Stenting of blocked renal arteries supplying blood to the kidneys are done in patients who have associated uncontrolled high blood pressure or rapidly worsening kidney function. Blocks in both renal arteries benefit by stenting as it prevents kidney damage progression and in hypertensive patients makes blood pressure control easier.
Many such patients also present with recurrent acute fluid accumulation in the lungs called flash pulm,onary edema which after stenting of both renal arteries is cured. The procedure is similar to coronary artery stenting.
Carotid Angioplasty Angiogram & Angioplasty Blood vessels supplying the brain also develops blockages called carotid artery stenosis and such patients usually present to the Neurologist with brain stroke or multiple episodes of transient weakness of arms, legs or slurred speech with rapid improvement known as TIA.
Such patients when diagnosed that the source of their problem is criotical blockage of carotid arteries from which small fragements are going to the brain undergo carotid stenting which is done with a distal protection decvice which ensures of further cerebral attacks from debar getting dislodged into the brain during the process of carotid stenting. All patients with cerebral stroke and not hemorrhage identified by MRI or CT brain should have routine Doppler ultrasound of both neck vessels to ensure that no blockages in the neck vessels are the source of their problem which need such treatment.
Complex Coronary Angioplasty
Bifurcation Stenting Angiogram & Angioplasty Bifurcation Stenting is done when major blood vessel is diseased and extends into its two major branches, both of which require to be stented along with the main blood vessel. Various complex techniques are available to treat such disease.
Rotablation with Stenting Angiogram & Angioplasty Rotablation is a technique for treating calcified coronary arteries with calcific blockages obstructing passage of balloand and stents for successful angioplasty. It has a diamond studded head called burr which is made to rotate at a speed of 1,50,000 to 1,90,000 revolution per minute. To prevent the burr from overheating from friction, cold fluid is sprayed continuously during rotablating. This drills through the blocked arteries allowing passage of balloons and proper expansion of stents.

Patient News

Blackouts & Treatment

This X-ray is of a gentleman of 54 years who had pacemaker implanted for frequent blackouts due to documented rhythm failure. Was well but suddenly had recurrence of blackouts.

Tests showed normal pacemaker backup, but a new rhythm disturbance (VT) now causing this symptom.

X-Ray Plate of Patient

Current Status

ICD was implanted on the right side. Patient subsequently has received many shocks, but no further blackouts.
