Heart Care is a complex field that requires a range of preventive care, screening, advanced diagnostic tests, invasive and non-invasive procedures, postoperative management, cardiac rehabilitation, and a full range of surgical programmes.
Heart Care today has evolved into a service which is in demand everywhere, especially in India and the developing world. An ageing population and the epidemic of Coronary Artery Disease which India and surrounding countries face make cardiac surgical facilities essential. Operating on the most Central organ of the body demands the best of Human Resources, Technical Skills, Equipment and Team Effort. There are no margins for error.
For over two decades, Wockhardt Hospitals has dedicated it’s services in the field of cardiac care in India and can proudly claim the spot of the market leader in heart care in India. The proficiency, precision and skill of our cardiac services demonstrate our pioneering contributions in this field. In our yesteryears, this included the world's first conscious off pump coronary artery bypass surgery. Wockhardt Hospitals will pursue its commitment to lead in the dominion of cardiac care and continue to be the most sought after destination for patients not just in India but also from across the world. Since 1990, Wockhardt Hospitals has successfully treated thousands of heart patients and successfully performed a number of cardiac procedures and surgeries. Our Cardiac team is strengthened by an accomplished full time and visiting team of over 50 cardiologists and cardiac surgeons who provide the Wockhardt legacy of excellence in all our hospitals.
The upper chambers of the heart are divided a wall called “interatrial septum”. The defect in this wall is known as Atrial septal defect (ASD). It is a form of a congenital heart defect, the defect the baby is born with. The reasons for developing of such a defect is not completely known, however it is believed that such defects could be due to genetic issues,...
Electrophysiology is a branch of cardiology that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders. Electrophysiologists are the cardiologists with special training in heart rhythms disorders and its management. These disorders are generally known as arrhythmias and include Atrial Fibrillation , Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome (WPW) , Heart...
The rhythmicity of the heart beat is based on the electric impulses. These impulses are initiated by the contraction of the cardiac muscles also known as myocardium. These impulses are initiated by the specialised cells situated at specific location within the myocardium; these cells are known as pacemaker cells as they main the pace (speed) of the heart beat....
Heart Surgery may be required to fix the problem with the functioning of the heart. Closed heart surgery does not require patients to be supported by a heart-lung bypass machine and the heart chambers are opened during the procedure. Some repairs are best performed using closed heart surgery. in few instances closed heart surgery is the first stage of repair...
Coronary angiography is an imaging technique or a radiological test that helps visualize the insides of the coronary arteries. It shows the exact location and severity of any plaque formation and consequent narrowing of the coronary arteries. This helps the doctor to decide on what treatment is needed. ...
Angioplasty is a specialised procedure performed in a Cath lab (cardiac catheterisation laboratory). Since the patients are awake and alert through the procedure, they are given medication before and during angioplasty procedure to help relax...
Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is a type of surgery that improves blood flow to the heart. Surgeons use CABG to treat people who have severe coronary heart disease (CHD). Symptoms of coronary artery disease include chest pain, fatigue, palpitations, abnormal heart rhythms and shortness of breath. In the CHD the blood flow to the heart is obstructed due...
Heart valve surgery fixes a damaged or faulty heart valve. There are two main types of heart valve surgeries: valve repair and valve replacement. Double valve surgery is a surgery where two valves are involved. Sometimes a faulty valve can be repaired by cutting away excess tissue in the cusps of the valve and sewing the edges together. It can be repaired by...
Heart valve surgery is used to repair or replace diseased heart valves. Blood flows between different chambers of the heart must flow through a heart valve. Human heart has four valves namely Tricuspid, Pulmonary, Mitral and Aortic Valves. If a valve is not working correctly, blood flow is impaired either by leakage or by back flow. If a valve is narrowed...
Pacemaker implantation is a surgical procedure where a small electrical device called a pacemaker is implanted on the chest or abdomen. The pacemaker sends regular electrical pulses that help keep your heart beating regularly....
Heart surgery in children are indicated to repair heart defects a child is born with CHD (congenital heart defects) and heart diseases a child gets after birth. The surgery is needed for the child's wellbeing. There are many kinds of heart defects ranging from minor to serious. Defects can occur inside the heart or in the large blood vessels outside the heart....
Our heart is located in our chest cavity and is a pump made of special muscles known as myocardium. Our heart is divided into four chambers; two upper chambers known as auricles (atria) and two lower chambers are known as ventricles. They are interconnected by a passage and the opening and closing is controlled by valves. The blood flows in unidirectional...
Arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels form the vascular system of our body and vascular surgery is a specialty dealing with diseases affecting the vascular system The diseases affecting our vascular system involve the obstruction in the blood flow due to blockages (aneurysms) in the vessels. The minor blockages do not cause symptoms but the blockages in the...
A ventricular septal defect (VSD) is an opening or hole in the wall that separates the two lower chambers of the heart. This wall is the ventricular septum. The hole causes oxygen-rich blood to leak from the left side of the heart to the right side. This causes extra work for the right side of the heart, since more blood than necessary is flowing through the...
