Noninvasive cardiology

Noninvasive Cardiology

Advanced non-invasive Cardiology imaging technologies like the ultrasound and nuclear tracer imaging have radically improved early detection and management of cardiovascular diseases. Patients who are at threat for heart disease either because of genetics or lifestyle choices are particularly well-served by the enhanced capabilities presented by the technology accessible today.

Interventional cardiology

Interventional Cardiology

Interventional Cardiology is a division of Cardiology that deals particularly with the catheter based treatment of structural heart diseases. Most interventional Cardiology procedures are regarded to be minimally invasive as they do not call for an instrument to penetrate inside the body or make large incisions (incisions are just about 1 inch mostly).

Complex PCIs

Complex PCIs

Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) universally known as coronary Angioplasty or just Angioplasty is a non-surgical procedure used for the treatment of the stenotic (narrowed) coronary arteries of the heart found in coronary heart disease. These stenotic segments are due to the accumulation of the cholesterol-laden plaques that form due to atherosclerosis.

Cardiac surgeries

Cardiac surgeries

Cardiac (heart) surgery is surgery on the heart or large vessels performed by Cardiac surgeons. In most cases, it is performed to treat problems of ischemic heart disease, correct a congenital heart disease, or treatment of valvular heart disease from different grounds including that of endocarditis, rheumatic heart disease and atherosclerosis. It also includes heart transplantation.

Heart Transplant

Heart Transplant

A heart transplant is a surgery in which a deteriorating, ailing heart is reinstated with a healthier, donor heart. Heart transplant is a treatment that is typically reserved for individuals who have tried medications or other surgeries, but have not seen any major improvement. While a heart transplant is a major surgery, chances of survival is high, with periodic follow-up care.

Electrophysiology

Electrophysiology

At times the heart's electrical system does not function well. This may result in abnormal heart rhythms called Arrhythmias external link. During an Arrhythmia, the heart may beat too slowly, too quickly or erratically. During an electrophysiology examination, electrodes are guided through blood vessels to the heart and used to check the function of the heart's electrical system.

Nuclear cardiology

Nuclear cardiology

Nuclear Cardiology is a non-invasive process for understanding Cardiovascular diseases by employing nuclear imaging techniques. These examinations are generally performed while the patient is undertaking the treadmill test. Coronary artery disease can be investigated as they can cause damage to the myocardium following coronary infarction. The extent and function of the ventricles can be calculated using these techniques.

Paediatric cardiology

Paediatric cardiology

Paediatric Cardiology is that division of medicine which studies the Congenital Cardiac malformations, acquired heart diseases and malfunction of the systemic and pulmonary circulations in the foetus, newborn, child and young adult.
