Our Interventional Cardiologist Department and Surgeons cardiologist expertise is a branch of cardiology that deals specifically with the catheter based treatment of structural heart diseases. Interventions can be useful in dealing with diseases such as Coronary artery disease, Heart valve disease congenital heart, arrhythmias and Peripheral vascular disease. The purpose of catheter-based tests and procedures such as angiograms and angioplasty is to diagnose, locate, and/or treat your condition in a way that avoids the need for a more invasive or open surgery. Procedures carried out most frequently are :
In a coronary angiogram, dye is released from the catheter tip into one or more of the blood vessels supplying the heart muscle. On the x-ray video screen, the dye in the blood shows any narrow or blocked sections of the coronary artery. This test is sometimes called angiography.
If blockages or narrowing are seen on an angiogram or ultrasound, the cardiologist may put a tiny balloon at the catheter tip and position it at the spot of the blockage. The balloon is then gently inflated, pushing open the blockage and restoring blood flow, which can help to decrease angina (chest pain) and the risk of a heart attack. In some cases after angioplasty, the cardiologist will use the catheter to insert a small wire mesh tube inside the narrowed vessel. This is called a stenting
