Cardiology Overview

Cardiology is the investigation and treatment of heart and vein problems. A person suffering from coronary artery disease or a cardiovascular infection may be referred to a cardiologist. Cardiology is a branch of internal medicine. A cardiologist is not the same as a heart specialist. A cardiovascular surgeon opens the chest and performs heart surgery. The cardiologist will perform tests and may employ certain strategies, such as heart catheterizations, angioplasty, or the implantation of a pacemaker. Coronary disease is directly related to the heart, whereas cardiovascular disease affects the heart, veins, or both. The cardiologist can provide advice on how to avoid coronary disease.

We have an advanced Cath lab at our hospital with all the required facilities to perform Cath lab procedures like

The Cardiology Department provides diagnostic and treatment services for heart-related conditions, such as angina, arrhythmia, and heart failure.

An implanted cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is a small, battery-powered device that is surgically put under the skin in the chest region to help manage erratic heart rhythms. The device continuously tracks the electrical activity of the heart and has the capability of electrically shocking the heart if it detects a potentially fatal arrhythmia.

The pacemaker is a small, battery-operated gadget that is inserted under the skin in the chest region to assist in controlling the heartbeat. The gadget helps the heart beat at a normal rate and rhythm by sending electrical impulses to the cardiac muscles.

ASD device closure is a procedure used to treat a condition called atrial septal defect (ASD), which is a hole in the wall that separates the two upper chambers of the heart. During the procedure, a small device is inserted into the hole to close it.

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a sort of treatment intended to enhance the heart’s functionality in persons with specific types of heart failure. CRT involves the use of a customised pacemaker that is intended to support the heart’s ventricles (lower chambers’) better-synchronised beating.

Mitral stenosis, or narrowing of the mitral valve in the heart, is treated with a minimally invasive surgery termed percutaneous transvenous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC). A catheter, a thin, flexible tube, is introduced during the procedure through a vein in the leg and advanced towards the heart. The narrowed valve is then widened and blood flow is improved by inflating a tiny balloon.

Types of heart surgeries:

a. Aortic surgery

This surgery is used to treat aortic aneurysms and dissections, while aortic valve diseases like regurgitation and stenosis can be present at birth or acquired due to factors such as rheumatic fever, hypertension, or heart attacks. Other causes include infectious endocarditis, tumours, radiation exposure, and connective tissue disorders.

b. Open Heart Surgery

That is an operation where the thickened heart wall is surgically eliminated. It is used while medicines are now not capable of managing symptoms of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. It’s miles very powerful in relieving symptoms and improving the satisfaction of existence.

c. Coronary Bypass Surgery

Coronary bypass surgery improves blood flow to the heart muscle by redirecting it around a blocked artery, relieving symptoms like chest pain and shortness of breath and reducing the risk of death or heart disease. However, it doesn’t cure the underlying heart disease causing the blockages.

d. Heart Transplant

A heart transplant is a surgical procedure that replaces a failing heart with a healthier one, typically reserved for individuals whose condition has not improved with medication or other surgeries. While it is a treatment option, it is usually considered for people with advanced heart disease who are otherwise healthy.

E. Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery(CTVS)

Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery(CTVS) is a surgical treatment of the heart, lungs, esophagus, and major blood vessels of the chest that also fall under the super-specialty department. This surgery is used to treat Coronary artery disease, Leaking Heart valve disease, Aortic aneurysm, Lung cancer, Esophageal cancer, Peripheral artery disease, heart failure, etc. Many people have recovered from cardiac disorders with these treatments and are leading normal lives.
