Cardiologists play a pivotal role in the long-term treatment of patients with cardiovascular problems.
The DESUN Cardiology team is headed by eminent doctors and highly trained fulltime consultants who blend clinical experience with expertise. Patients can also consult cardiologists at the hospital's Out-Patients' Department (OPD). Where necessary, consultations between doctors / referrals may be made to enable a faster and more accurate diagnosis.
Cardiac treatment is backed by a full range of sophisticated diagnostic equipment. Apart from the routine Treadmill, Echo-cardiography and Colour Doppler studies, DESUN has also performed radial angioplasty and radial angiography with stenting which is a rare phenomenon in this part of the country.
An angiography is a screening procedure that can detect the locations of blockages in the heart. It is considered the gold standard for evaluating blockages in the arterial system. The detection is performed by using real time images, taken after the injection of a contrast agent (iodine dye). This is a Daycare Procedure (Admitted and Discharged on the same day), performed through Radial Route, which ensures less pain and faster recovery to the patient.
Angiograms(CAG) are typically performed while the patient is sedated. The procedure may last for an average of 15-20 minutes or up to an hour, depending on the level of complications that are unique to each patient.
The different types of Angiograms(CAG) include Coronary Angiogram(CAG), Cerebral Angiogram(CAG), Head & Neck Angiogram(CAG), Peripheral Angiogram(CAG) and Renal Angiogram(CAG). The details about the procedures are as follows:
An angioplasty is a surgical procedure needed to open up the blocked arteries that supply blood to your heart muscle. These coronary arteries get blocked due to accumulation of plaque from increased levels of cholesterol. Doctors often perform this procedure where the blockage has space to be opened up.
The procedure is also called a percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) or percutaneous coronary intervention. In many cases, doctors insert a coronary artery stent after an angioplasty. The stent helps keep the blood flowing and prevents the artery from narrowing again.
We are one of the first hospitals in Kolkata to have performed radial angioplasty successfully. Here we use top rated, American-manufactured, high quality FDA approved cardiac stents at Government of India regulated prices for Coronary (Heart) Angioplasty (PTCA). The catheter is guided through the wrist and then standard Angioplasty procedures are followed. It lessens chances of infection and haemorrhage.
It is a small unit that helps your heart beat consistently. It provides a small electric stimulation that helps maintain a steady heartbeat for different conditions of arrhythmias. This helps the patient’s body circulate oxygen and other essential nutrients that it needs from the blood vessels.
The doctor implants the device under the skin by making a small pocket and connects it to their heart with the help of fine wires. Some patients need a pacemaker for a short time (like after a heart attack) to regularize the heart’s rhythm. For them an external pacemaker is attached that is battery operated and remains outside the skin (in the form of a belt or otherwise).
Pacemakers generally treat two types of arrhythmias:
Depending on their medical condition, patients are recommended one of the following types of pacemakers:
We provide low cost affordable packages for various types of pacemakers including Dual Chamber High Quality American Pacemaker to ensure a healthy functioning cardiac system.
Heart Bypass is a surgical procedure to restore normal blood flow to an obstructed coronary artery. In Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG), popularly called “Heart Bypass”, healthy veins or arteries from the patient’s body are grafted to create a bypass channel that ensures proper blood & oxygen flow to the heart. When blood flow reduces due to coronary heart disease (CHD), these arteries or veins, often taken from your leg or forearm, are grafted (attached) to the coronary artery to let blood “detour” past a narrowing or blockage in this artery.
Bypass Surgery (CABG) that uses Minimal Invasion technique to ensure smaller incisions, smaller scars, lowered risk of infection, very less pain and speedy recovery.
Supported by ECG, Echo & TMT for accurate and precision based clinical evaluation.
