Built by pioneers of interventional cardiology in India, our team consists of experienced and skilled cardiologists who have extensive expertise in performing a wide range of interventional procedures in high volumes
Our use of world-class technology and equipment drive accurate diagnoses for safe procedures in our advanced Cath Labs. Treatments are provided in an ecosystem designed for clinical accuracy and precision with best-in-class imaging technology.
Our holistic ‘Heart Team’ approach to cardiac care means our interventional cardiologists work closely with heart surgeons, electrophysiologists, and rehabilitation experts to provide personalised, comprehensive care.
Four valves in your heart control the direction of blood flow to and from your heart. Their function is to open and close during each heartbeat. In a condition called stenosis, a valve is unable to open correctly and in another condition called regurgitation, the valve is incapable of closing properly.The four valves in your heart are aortic valve, mitral valve, pulmonary valve and tricuspid valve. Any of these valves could develop an anomaly in its functioning, thereby causing a heart valve disease.
Myocardial infarction is commonly called as ‘heart attack’. Like all muscles of the body, the muscles in the heart require constant supply of oxygen and nutrients for their functioning. Myocardial infarction refers to the necrosis or irreversible death of muscles in the heart, owing to ischemia or prolonged lack of oxygen supply to heart muscles. Oxygenated blood is provided to the heart by two large arteries. In a myocardial infarction, blood flow into the blood vessels of the heart would be cut off suddenly.This can be attributed to the sudden rupture of blood clots in coronary arteries, which have plaque depositions that are fatty and calcified.
Coronary arteries are the major blood vessels that carry blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the heart. Coronary artery disease develops when your coronary artery gets damaged or afflicted. The building up of plaques causes the arteries to become narrow, thereby decreasing the flow of blood to the heart. Gradually, the decrease in the flow of blood may result in angina or chest pain, shortness of breath, and other symptoms. If there is a complete blockage, it may result in a heart attack.
